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.

I would highly recommend Paradise Event Planner as a service. All our questions were answered promptly and honestly during the planning. We always felt in control of our own decisions and yet appreciated the experienced advice provided. The attention to small details really made the day special. Your calm approach to a potentially stressful time helped to keep the nerves at bay. I was pleased that you allowed us lots of flexibility in our choices and didn't try to persuade us into anything we didn't want/need but appreciated your opinion when requested.

Thanks so much for the well wishes, we had an absolute ball, a big part down to your amazing work. Everything went off without a hitch, our friends are still talking about ‘the best wedding they’ve ever been to’!! Everything ran so smoothly and it was such a relaxing day knowing that Joan had everything sorted in advance, so reassuring.

I just wanted to say how fantastic everything was and I could never have imagined that I could have had such a lovely, relaxed wedding day filled with so many wonderful things. It felt very surreal being in the pool with my friends before the ceremony, without a care in the world! The whole day just kept getting better and better and was truly magical, and if asked for a highlight, I would not be able to make up my mind between the settings, the food or the flamenco....all absolutely amazing! I have so many lovely memories and I can't thank you enough for all your hard work and vision!

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.

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!

A huge thank you for doing such a fantastic job of our wedding, which I have to say is the best I’ve ever been to! ... I cant think of one negative thing to say about the whole week (except perhaps that the day didn’t last long enough!).
