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 just had to thank you once again for being a wonderful wedding planner, fairy godmother and friend - we had such a fabulous time and everyone was thrilled to be there. All of your contacts were lovely and helped to make the day the special occasion that it certainly was. We shall never forget it and loved the fact that you just appeared whenever we needed you as if by magic, but we were unaware of the behind the scenes activities going on whilst enjoying our day - the flowers were perfect, the food delicious and music certainly got everyone up dancing - thank you so much!

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!

Matt & Laura

For a year and a half you guys helped us immensely with every aspect of our planning for our big day. No question was too silly or small and if you were busy, your lovely assistant Rob was always on hand and just as helpful. Swen helped us create exactly what we wanted from the smallest details to the really big! Even a month on, our guests are still talking about how amazing everything was and that it was the best wedding they've ever attended! As Swen has lots of experience he can really advise you of the best decisions etc. Swen has helped us make our dream a reality and we cant thank him enough for this.

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!

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!).
