Today’s real wedding is a celebration of heart and soul, and family old and new. Celia and Santos chose to celebrate their marriage on a late October day in Seville, the vibrant capital of southern Spain’s Andalusia region.
The city’s Gothic and medieval past coexists beautifully with its buzzing streets and intimate Flamenco clubs, and we adore how thoughtfully the wedding echoes and embraces all of it. That dress – white and demure, and yet so strikingly modern! Custom made by the creative director of Beba’s Closet, the bride wanted a dress that was one-of-a-kind, authentic to her personality, and featuring a unique embodiment of colour and happiness. After a emotional ceremony at a stunningly ornate church, the guests were welcomed to the reception venue, a baroque villa dating back to the 18th century. The guests then dined and feasted al fresco amidst its walls seeped with history, patterned tiles, and fuchsia blooms. The décor chosen by the couple is perfectly in harmony with their surroundings – elegant, warm, and effortlessly beautiful.
We really hope you enjoy the gallery, and especially all the love and laughter captured so powerfully by Boda&Films!
We were traveling on a cruise with my family in Norway. When we stopped in Flam, a lovely spot surrounded by incredible mountains and in front of all my family, he asked me if I want to spend the rest of his life with him and of course I said YES!
THE PLANNING PROCESS
We decided not to hire a wedding planner. My mum and sister were the best! They helped us with everything. The décor was entirely made in the venue. With the exception of the centrepieces, which were made by La Galeria Jesús Fuertes.
Lovely place and super professional!
THE DRESS & ACCESSORIES
Dress and veil by Beba’s Closet. Since the first meeting they were amazing and I felt it was the right brand. I was looking for something different. The most important thing was feeling myself and Belén Barbero, creative director of Beba’s, knew how to make my perfect dress. It was essential for me, that dress have some colour but above all, I wanted a dress that I didn’t see before, unique and different.
Everyone at the wedding told me that the dress matched perfectly with me, it was colourful and happy!
My mum and sister were dressed by Roberto Diz.
I looked for the perfect shoes in so many stores… But I finally found them in H&M, they were cute and simple and I didn’t think twice!
My sapphire earrings were given to me a long time ago by my Grandma and I’ve been keeping them for something special.
Classic suit with blue shirt, which is Santos’ favourite colour.
THE READINGS & MUSIC
One of my favourite moments was reading a letter I wrote for Santos during the church ceremony.
Music by @planeta80. We were dancing all day! At night we had a DJ.
Hacienda de Medina and La Galería Jesús Fuertes
We chose a candy bar by Teresagil1
THE DETAILS & DÉCOR
We chose to use a palette of pastel colours, and we didn’t have a specific theme for the wedding.
Myanmar and Bali.
For both of us, every moment was very memorable, but especially the fact that a friend of ours, who is a bishop in the Vatican, was able to travel to attend our wedding.
I also loved reading a letter for Santos at church, and entering the venue to find all the guests happy and singing.
ADVICE FOR OTHER COUPLES
When the day comes, everything goes by so fast, so enjoy every moment of planning your wedding!
