A Bohemian Beach Wedding (Spain)

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.

Malcolm & Lynne

Malcolm and I had a fabulous time at our wedding. Everything went according to plan. They did not only made the whole day run smoothly but it was the extra effort they made for us that we really appreciated.
The flowers were amazing. I was totally overwhelmed by them. It was the only thing i really didn't want to compromise on and my choice of flowers were not available locally. They sourced them for me and they came all the way from South Africa!
It was a stress free experience for us and we would recommend any of our friends to get married with your help!

Graham & Lynda

Well we are finally back in the land of the living after a wonderful honeymoon, but to be fair, nothing could top the amazing day we had on the 4th September!!!

We cannot thank you both enough for making it such a magical day, but most of all, we were overwhelmed by all the work and organisation you put into it – it meant that we had a hassle-free day that we enjoyed every minute of and our guests cannot stop raving about!!  From the Wally Trolley to the piper to the fairytale venue to the fireworks, everyone agreed it was the best wedding they had been to and Graham and I are convinced they are not just being polite!

Thanks again for everything you did for us, we are so very very appreciative and we wish you both the very best for everything in the future.

Andy & Suzanne

A massive thank you to Paradise Wedding Spain.  From day one they were both so friendly and helpful, and they were able to make our day as special as we always hoped it would be, even on a relatively low budget.  When we decided to change our venue with 2 months to go they worked very hard to find us the most perfect replacement. All of our guests had a wonderful time, all said it was one of the most special wedding's they'd been to.  At times planning a wedding abroad might seem daunting but the team really made sure that everything ran smoothly both leading up to and throughout our special day.

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 🙂

We cannot recommend Paradise Wedding Spain enough. It whas a stroll in the park from beginning to end. We chose them through a recommendation of a friend & we are so glad we did. everything was taken care of, from flowers, music, venue, transport church, paperwork, the bbq the following day to name but a few! The day itself was a total dream. from getting ready in the hotel, & making sure everyone (including me!) were on time for the church - it all went so smoothly, cava afterwards on the terrace & onto our fabulous venue. Paradise Wedding Spain thank you so so much for making it such a special & stress free day. We could not have done it without you, we will never forget you guys xx

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!

I'd like to say me and my wife highly recommend Swen and his team at Paradise Wedding Spain. We used his services for our wedding day and can highly recommend him. The red Auburn added to our perfect day in Espana!
Also his 4x4 off road day trip was great!

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.

Adam & Louise

Hi guys,
I just arrived back in New York Yesterday after an absolutely fantastic few weeks. Adam and I want to thank you so very much for organizing and coordinating such a fantastic wedding... It really was (without sounding too dramatic!) the wedding of our dreams... Everything ran so smoothly and we can't thank you enough for all of your support, suggestions, organisation in the months before hand and co ordination on the day...


Our friends and family have not stopped talking about it and many have said that they doubt they'll ever attend a wedding quite like it again!! Many thanks!
