A Bohemian Beach Wedding (Spain)

Alexandra Wenman, 38, married Antony Reed, 40, at La Escollera in Sant Jordi de ses Salines, Ibiza, on 1 October 2015. She says:

Deciding to have our wedding in Ibiza was an easy choice as both Tony and I are sun-worshipping beach bums. Ibiza is also a very special place for me because of its spiritual vibe – I’m an angel healer and holistic therapist – so it was the perfect spot to get married.

We stumbled across La Escollera after spending an entire weekend checking out venues with a wedding planner. They were all beautiful, but were either too expensive or not quite right. We’d both given up hope until we stopped off at Es Cavallet Beach and popped into its restaurant – we’d found our venue!

Our theme was ‘heavenly bohemian’. Each of the reception tables was named after constellations and our table plan was a star map with the title, ‘Where in the heavens am I sitting?’. In front of the map I hung a mobile with everyone’s names written within a shooting star.

We married in London a few days before, which meant we could have a unique second wedding in Ibiza. We incorporated a mix of ceremonies such as Native American prayers, Jewish customs, a Pagan hand-fasting and an angel blessing (everyone has a guardian angel – my friend and fellow healer, Sabi, wrote a poem to the angels to bless our union). All of our guests were in tears.

My top tip: Remember that trying to make everyone happy isn’t going to happen. In the end it’s your opinions that matter.

 

See how easy it is to get married in Spain and have one of the most romantic dream weddings on this planet.

The wedding was brilliant, even better than we'd imagined, right down to the bits we couldn't control, like the weather which was perfect! We're so glad we got you lot to organise it, I now think it's a myth that planning a wedding is stressful - it was pretty easy really, but I bet I wouldn't be saying that if we hadn't had you doing all the hard work! Thanks again for everything - we're so happy!

Thank you so much to you and all the team for your help in celebrating the happiest day of our lives. It's been a whirlwind since the week before the wedding until now.

The wedding day was amazing, the food was out of this world (thank to your canape recommendations). the photography you provided was amazing and video, then the band was awesome and the DJ turned out to be a blast. The staff stayed well into the night so we could enjoy ourselves to the fullest 🙂

Thank you so much for all you did to make our day and days so special. I cannot think of a single thing that did not go off like clockwork. It thoroughly vindicated our decision to get married abroad and every single guest has reiterated this to us.

We don't know where to begin to thank you and everyone behind the scenes who helped out for the incredible all around effort. Every aspect of the wedding was expertly coordinated. 'Thank you' just doesn't cut it. Really. You went above and beyond. We couldn't imagine the day without your assistance.

We just wanted to say thank you very much for the enormous amount of help we had from you both in the run up to the wedding and on the day itself. It turned out to be a perfect day in every way. We know that it wouldn't have been so perfect without your help so a million thanks from us both.

From the first meeting you understood us as a couple and exactly what we wanted the day to be like, which was the most important thing. You then provided us with the guidance we needed through the whole planning process and supported us with the best services we could have asked for. 


Thank you!
