Romantic wedding ideas in Marbella, Spain

June 13, 2018

Morning, friends! Have any of you been lucky enough to visit Marbella, Spain? It’s a popular spot for luxury weddings in Southern Spain, but Claire of Butler & White and Laura of Reviva Weddings were determined to show a more intimate, romantic side to this seaside city—complete with a lakeside villa, floral wedding dress, and a little Italian magic. Thanks to Mireia Cordomi for sharing the photos!

The team enlisted Studio By Catarina Zimbarra to calligraph the romantic pale blush place cards, which featured little tassels as a fun Spanish-style touch.

Claire of Butler & White explains, We selected a dress form Spanish designer Inmaculada Garcia, opting for the Serika gown which is a stunning satin organza dress with feature v-neck at the front and the rear of the dress. The floral print design on the back of the dress is exclusive to the designers and is inspired by the Japanese Hanami tradition. The dress is beautifully light and perfect for a spring destination wedding. We love the movement in this dress and the ease in which the bride can move around when wearing it.

They continued the spring floral design with a tablescape and décor elements inspired by the dress itself, from the florals by Anais Floristas to that dreamy cake adorned with cascading sugar flowers and vines, by Sweet Things by Fi.

The tablescape enjoys the wonderful lake view as a backdrop. We wanted to use a traditional Spanish colour scheme for the florals and Anais Floristas certainly added Spanish flair to the table. A combination of fruit and florals placed in flea market vases, cut glass and brass vessels creates a wonderfully informal and varied design. Antique brass and black candle holders sit in between to add candle light to the setting.

Watercolors and calligraphy never cease to be a romantic combo for wedding stationery, in our opinions.

Still can’t get over this dress! Such a perfect fit for all you brides-to-be that want something unique and unconventional, but still so timeless. 100LC approved all the way!

For our portrait sessions we relaxed the couples’ look a little so they could really relax and enjoy the session. This dress just moves so beautifully as the skirt is shorter at the front and flares out wonderfully longer at the back. We love how the wildflowers growing alongside the lake really make the floral print come to life. Malaga photographer Mireia Cordomi loves to see movement in her images and she captured it beautifully on both film and digital by the lake.

So pretty. If you’re planning a wedding in Spain, be sure to tag us on Instagram!
