A Brazilian affair

This was one of those weddings where there was just so much love in the air it was infectious! Even though my Portuguese isn't up to much I was still having a little weep when the Father of the Bride made his super emotional speech.

Gabi and Andre invited guests from around the world to celebrate at the private house they chose to be their wedding location. The decor was keep simple and stylish to really allow the surrounding beauty and the architecture of the house take centre stage and Gabi looked so chic and elegant in her Maison Camille Gabrielle gown.

La Grande Bouffe smashed the food and Gabi and Andre literally smashed the dessert up to make  their own Eton Mess in front of the guests. And as day faded into night, the music cranked up and friends of the couple hit the decks to a very enthusiastic international crowd.

Crazy in love

When the highlights of Paul and Aelish´s wedding landed in my inbox, I watched it with a big smile on my face as Gary at Infin8 had so perfectly captured the feeling of the day. These two were so relaxed and they really did just smile and laugh all day long. Just gorgeous.

Mediterranean blue

Held on a very warm, very brights summer´s day, big ol´shades were the order of the day for Paul and Kevin´s super intimate, super stylish, feet in the sand celebration at Cap d´es Falco.

The collaboration between them and Velvet Circus Ibiza, our decoration wizards, as well as Ramo de Flores our (long suffering!!) florist produced the most dreamy, rustic scheme that only enhanced the beauty of the location, rather than from detracting from it in any way.

Vows were made under a simple rustic awning draped with chiffon and studded with white peonies and roses (which with some help survived the heat of the day) and guests watched on informally from over sized day beds.

Sangria flowed, the music played and as the sun set guests were invited to sit amongst the candles and fairy lights to enjoy a Mediterranean feast....an unforgettable, love filled Ibiza summer day x

With love from Can Curreu

Fabian and Nadia´s wedding was a true love story and friends and family flew in from all over the world to watch them make their commitment to each other. Kind, funny, intelligent and very stylish they knew exactly the kind of celebration they wished to host.

As well as adoring each other, this couple adore Ibiza, to dance and to party and Can Curreu was the perfect choice of venue showcasing the beauty of the island´s architecture, flora and fauna, and having the perfect layout for the flow of the day.

The ceremony was held on a large lawn under the boughs of a hundred year old olive tree, with drinks and canapés served around the pool with views over the surrounding countryside, before moving onto dinner al fresco. The party then continued until late in a purpose built club style area, decorated with lots of moving disco lights and candles.

The next day guests were treated to lunch by the ocean at the beautiful Atzaro beach located at Cala Nova, where stories were exchanged over a glass of Cava Sangria, the waves lapping the shores of the beach below.

Big softie

I never tire of watching our couple´s wedding films....they get me every time as I sit watching these real life love stories, with tears in my eyes and hope in my heart (I am an eternal romantic!). This job can be exhausting and frustrating at times but is also challenging, rewarding and so very varied and every single time I watch the film from the day I am reminded of what a wonderful and privileged position we are in to be organising these celebrations of love on this magical little island we call home. Brett and Alli´s had me from the get go....bravo Garry from Infin 8 Wedding Films xxx
