Mylène and Benjamin wanted a destination wedding in a new place their guests could discover with them, so they chose to have a wedding in Andalusia, Spain — and it was absolutely breathtaking! The couple found their dream wedding planner (who doubled as a rockstar floral designer) in Opi from Open the Door Events. With Opi’s help, they pulled off a festival chic affair complete with custom outfits, elegant stationary designed by Eugenie Godeluck, and a bohemian ceremony space that is something out of a fairy tail! We can’t wait for you to see how photographer Joy Zamora brilliantly captured this inspiring destination wedding in Andalusia!
Mylène & Benjamin
Private Residence, Andalusia, Spain
I loved the idea of creating something with my own hands for this very special day. I sewed my own robe for my preparation and I also sewed my own veil. I handpicked every single piece of fabric for my wedding dress and my bridesmaid dresses and designed them with a tailor.
We are both French and we were living in Dubai (United Arab Emirates) when we got engaged. As citizens of the world we knew straight away we wanted a destination wedding, in a wonderful place our guests could discover with us. So the cornerstone was deciding on the place & finding the perfect wedding planner who could organize everything for us remotely. We had a Skype call with Opi our wedding planner after she was recommended by a friend and it was love at first sight. Within an hour we were set on the destination: Andalusia, Spain!
The ceremony was out of this world. We were married by my (the bride’s) younger sister. She officiated the whole ceremony and our parents and witnesses gave the most loving speeches. We cried and laughed with our guests through the entire ceremony it was surreal.
Picking a photographer whose style fit us and inspired us was one of the most important points for us! Our photographer was the perfect mix of respecting our intimacy and creating the special moments to get the most amazing pictures and memories.
Wedding planning advice from the couple: Get yourself a wedding planner!!! We enjoyed our wedding so much, without any uncertainties or last minute stress. You can really focus on yourselves and your guests, and this is priceless!
We wanted a very relax, non traditional non conformist wedding. We had a big outdoor party in mind, surrounded by nature. We loved the inspiration we were getting from Festival chic and boho weddings. We discussed it at length with our wedding planner and she designed the entire wedding experience with us, accommodating every fantasy we had, from live roast bbq to adding a last minute wishing tree.
