Wedding Wednesday: Steph & Neil
This Wednesday we are taking a look back at Steph & Neil’s beautiful boutique hotel wedding from 2014.
Mallorca is extremely close to the couple’s heart, and it made perfect sense for them to choose our beautiful island for their destination wedding. They rented Boutique Hotel 2 for the weekend, where close friends and family joined them in celebrating their love. They began the day with their ceremony in the local church, where the couple had opted for vintage decor to greet the guests, as opposed to traditional floral arrangements. With the aisle lined with candles and flower petals, and a choir singing Eva Cassidy’s “Songbird”, the bride looked angelic in her beautiful white gown.
After the ceremony, the guests were greeted by a Spanish guitarist and mini bottles of cava, to accompany them walking back to the hotel for the reception. The venue was decorated in beautiful blush pink tones, along with hints of lace, with views looking out over Valldemossa valley. After dinner, speeches were held on the terrace before guests were surprised with a saxophonist and lead singer of the band appearing from a glass elevator to get the party started!
The wedding was later covered by Rock My Wedding, one of Europe’s most popular wedding blogs. Scroll down for more images from the day, as well as the trailer for their wedding video.
From day 1 until beyond the wedding nothing was too much trouble for Mandy. I am a self-confessed perfectionist and pretty anal to boot if I am being honest! The little details were important to me as well as the obvious key parts of a wedding. Mandy helped to bring all my ideas and inspiration to life whether it be from Pinterest images or just some random concoction that I had dreamt up and just ‘had to have’ for my wedding! That included her and her team spending what must have been hours on laborious and time-consuming details like replacing 80 cava bottle labels with personalised ones we had brought, creating personalised parcels for 80 table settings, creating a table plan suspended from the ceiling – the list is endless.
Mandy will know the sorts of things you want for your day before you even know it yourself and very quickly ‘gets’ exactly what you are after. She always responds to emails/texts incredibly promptly (usually on the same day if not within minutes!) Don’t take that for granted – not every wedding planner does that, especially not when they are busy as Mandy.
Mandy is unflappable and the day itself was flawless (although of course I am biased!) and that is down to Mandy and her team who were as precise and efficient as a military operation.You will sit back after the wedding and wonder what on earth you would have done without her – we certainly did. I cannot recommend Mandy and her team highly enough.
