Venues that can offer a plan B if the spring weather looks menacing are perfect. Always ask about the plan B possibilities when choosing a venue.
Old records to be framed with the well wishes of family and friends.

Time to get ready!
The twins being prepped.
When Ivana gave me her trust to create her table I was delighted. What makes a table unique is a change from the norm. Change the colour of your napkins or buy/rent different coloured wine glasses. It doesn't take much and need not be expensive. My clients numbers were small so the wine glasses went home with them for future dinner parties.
A few Polar Print props and some good music kicked the evening off.
A photo is taken/printed/displayed for your guests to sign. At the end of the day these images are given to you for an instant look at your wedding day. A box of photobooth props included.

Denise & Thorsten
Kirsten Becken was the photographer and also the Wedding Planners saviour when it came to hanging many lines of feathers across the ceiling of the dance hall. Thank you so much Kirsten and also smiles to you for admitting that as did I we (for a short time) became addicted to the Bleubird Blog.
For more about Kirsten please look at Lovebird Photography on Facebook.
Paper named feathers across a large wooden door for a table plan. Candles in jars and feathers suspended on large wooden poles over the table created an intimate atmosphere in the evening.
Having a small wedding enabled us to create one long table which looked striking with the decor. Denise had made lovely hessian draw string bags to hold the favours. They were tied using grey leather as were the napkins.
I´am not a real fan of the tea lite. They don´t last and often blow out. I much prefer to use a chunky candle that will last all night long. Often when I go back to dismantle the next day I end up blowing them out. A wonderful wedding.
Tammy & Eric

Eric and Tammy are from San Diego. When they arrived in Spain they came with a great bunch of people. The wedding was so relaxed and easy going, this is definitely one of my 2013 favourites.
The male side of the party included quite a few barmen. Not shy and knew how to get a party going.
The ceremony was emotional and humorous which ended in a traditional Spanish roar of cheers.
Hay bales, games, cute guys, good food and someone with the tunes to liven up the evening.
Emily & Gareth

When I first met Emily and Gareth they were just about to embark on new jobs in two completely different countries. Their feelings for each other and a good amount of family help resulted in a wonderful wedding day. Emily looked amazing and I loved her choice of jewellery. Aunt Squeezy and I had fun at the Barcelona flower market coming away with armfuls of flowers (with Aunt Squeezy slightly nervous about her splurge).
Emily and Gareth had decided to hire drummers to play for their wedding. What they also decided to do was not tell anyone that was attending the wedding (brilliant). . . for one year. The drummers were amazing (I had discovered them the year before at village drum off event). I watched everyone transform from a state of shock to a state of WOW! A wonderful way to kick start an evening after a big wedding meal.
Emma & Tom

I first met Emma and Tom when they were making their way back to the U.K after travelling. They were in Sitges for only two days. On day one we met and got to know each other. On day two we took a trip to the Masia Al Miral. Both Emma and Tom were open to ideas so I showed them all the possibilities. The Masia produces it´s own cava from the vineyards surrounding the house and it was here that Emma and Tom decided to have their ceremony.
Hair and make-up was done by friends and Emma herself.
Whilst Emma and her bridal party were curling, brushing and painting the rest of the party were enjoying the Masia and all it had to offer. Good for them.
The Masias in house chef created an amazing menu for Emma and Tom that lasted the entire day.
After a relaxing morning everyone got down to the business of dressing for the ceremony. Its this time that myself and my wonderful team decorate. The ceremony area was in the vineyard and the reception meal was to be under the shade of a climbing vine.
Ola from fotografia sitges took loads of amazing photographs. Here are just some of them.
Ahh the boys. Some were good and some .... let´s say had to do a lot of post wedding chores.
Lovely ladies who could do no wrong.
Instead of having a table plan Emma had gathered info on everyone and placed clue cards in front of each place. People had to figure out which facts connected to which person and which seat. It was a brilliant idea but Emma did say it took a long time to get together.
Live flamenco music whilst people ate their dinner followed by drummers who really really got people off their dinner seats and dancing.
A lovely wedding for a very cute couple. Thank you for trusting me to be a part of it.
A wonderful day spent in Sitges with two people that within 24 hours had the script for this shoot done to precision. Aided by a great videographer called Dani. Brilliant job Nathalie and Rachelle (thanks for the maple syrup). Can´t wait for the big day.
