Barbara & Lars – Marbella Old Town Wedding

We were approached by the bride and her mum in Autumn 2011 to help organise aspects of this German couples’ wedding to take place in Santo Cristo de la Vera Cruz Church in Marbella’s Old Town. The beautiful church which is the oldest in Marbella was the place our bride had dreamt of getting married in since she was a little girl. Her mother wanted to organise most of the day but they were looking for some help with some of the details and on the day itself.

On the day of the wedding, we arrived in the apartment where the bride and her bridesmaid were getting ready to find that they were cool, calm and collected and very much looking forward to the day ahead. Jeanette did the make up for the bride once the hairdresser was finished and then Jenny went to decorate the tables and the plaza once the caterers had set the tables.

The bride had chosen a very simple theme with everything in white but for the centre pieces on the tables, there was a splash of colour with 2 white roses and 1 red rose in individual holders – very simple yet stylish. The plaza did not need much decoration as the location is stunning but with a white ribbon round each plant at the front door of the church and white flowers placed in the trees and plants around the square, it complimented the theme beautifully. The bride and her bridesmaid and flower girls arrived at the church in a horse drawn carriage to the delight of the crowd that had assembled.

After the ceremony which had live music throughout provided by musicians brought in from Germany, the guests left the church and enjoyed cava and canapés in the plaza. Throughout the ceremony, photos were taken by Rebecca from Your Wedding Moments. The mother of the bride provided the dinner as she owns a restaurant in the old town. After a meal of traditional Spanish food the guests were treated to a flamenco show as the sun went down.

Following this, the couple wanted to continue to party in private where Marbella Wedding Angels had arranged the hire of a private villa in Nueva Andalucia. The villa had stunning views over Los Naranjos Golf Course and the gardens were decorated simply and beautifully by Gorgeous Event Decoration.

The couple enjoyed their day enormously and we enjoyed helping them and Barbara’s mum have the day they had always dreamed of.
