What do you get when you mix a very happy couple, a gorgeous Andalusian Hacienda in Seville, talented wedding planners, and fabulous flamenco details? Victoria and Charles´s magical wedding day! The newlyweds are from London, but they planned a relaxed and intimate wedding in Seville, one of their favorite cities in Spain, for their nearest and dearest in so they could treat their guests to a wonderful weekend of Spanish culture.
Victoria and Charles’s wedding planner (and Junebug member!), Laura Charles of Reviva Weddings, was a blessing when the venue that the couple had originally booked backed out, just three months before their wedding date. Carla helped them find El Esparragal, and the wedding was saved! Beyond the usual wedding festivities, they also planned a beautiful dancing horse and flamenco show, and a pre-wedding cocktail party on a rooftop overlooking Seville. The gorgeous images from Limelight photography tell the whole story!
The Goals: Victoria and Charles shared a deep affection for Spain and imagined their wedding day as intimate, romantic, and magical whilst sharing their love of everything Spanish from the food to the culture; with their closest family and friends surrounding them. The beautiful Andalusian venue El Esparragal nestled in the countryside to the North of Seville, was full of romance and charm, and an elaborate wedding weekend for their 150 guests proved to be the perfect way for everyone to slow down and enjoy each other’s company whilst enjoying the Mediterranean sunshine
The Design: For Laura and the talented design team from Reviva Weddings, Spanish culture was the name of the game! This meant passionate red florals, flamenco styling, fans, Spain´s famous sherries, and little black bulls! Reviva designed black bulls for the placecards, and each guest was treated to a mini bottle of Fino Quinto Spanish Sherry. The Order of Service was printed onto ivory lace-edged fans and red and black polka dot fans, which guests used to keep cool during the ceremony. The guest messages were written onto a poster in the style of a bull fighting feria poster, and the tables were decorated with a romantic mix of candles and red roses.
The Look: Victoria´s bridal look was all about classic elegance and more romance. She wore a beautiful lace Jenny Packham dress and her gorgeous long hair was swept up in an elegant style which complemented her look perfectly. The bridesmaids wore beautiful long red dresses, and all of the ladies carried oh-so-Spanish red roses.
The Moments: The day was filled with so many romantic moments and love! The couple shared a wonderful olive oil ceremony in the gardens of El Esparragal. The guests loved having cocktails and canapés while being entertained with a moving, romantic dancing Andalusian horse show. The wonderful Mediterranean evening also included a 4-course gourmet meal, photo booth by the pool, and a lounge area created from haystacks, ivory throws, Moroccan tables and cushions. It was a great place to relax during a break from some serious dancing!
