Calling all vampire lovers!

As Twilight and True Blood are hugely popular and the latest rage and of course it is Halloween, we found this fabulous board on It's a Jaime Thing for a vampire style wedding!
Deep reds and blacks, truly goth, and how about some ghoulish cupcakes thrown in!

Fabulous Wedding at Puente Romano, Marbella

We loved this photo of the notes hastily written down, note Jeremy's and my mobile numbers just in case!
We were so excited to finally see the photos of Carla and Matt's wedding held here at the beautiful Puente Romano Hotel.
Carla was a delight to work with and knew exactly what she wanted, we only met twice to put all these lovely details together to make the day so special.
Carla chose a lemon for her main theme that we accentuated with bright colours, pinks, oranges and vivid greens. The bridal flowers were country style handties with roses in pinks and lemons with touches of green and oranges, our pedestals for the ceremony were vivid and brightly coloured to lift the wedding, which we later moved down to the beach club for the main reception.
We made up fans with lemon ribbons and fuchsia paper roses, large confetti cones fixed to the sides of the chairs down the aisle filled with pink, orange and lemon rose petals and the rest of the petals were scattered on the aisle.
After a very moving ceremony, beautifully conducted by Andrew Hunter, the wedding party moved down to the stunning setting of the Suite Del Mar on the beach.
We used the same style country style rose arrangements placed in square vases for the table centrepieces, set on table mirrors with bright floating candles in votives and lots of pink, yellow and green table crystals, the end result was very elegant.
We tied the napkins with lemon organza ribbons and the same fuchsia rose detail as the fans and tied each guest's name to the napkins.
Our decorated cava bottles marked the girls seats and personalised cigars were placed out for the men. Yet again we found a tree for our handmade, famous table seating cards!
Our thanks to Jeremy and Jenny for these fabulous photos and to see this wedding slideshow and more images of Carla and Matt's wedding, visit Jeremy's beautiful blog

Vampire Chic for Weddings and Parties

This red and black wedding is perfect for a Gothic celebration and we love the spanish style cake.
The table names are in elaborate ornate blackframes with the names Dracula in this image, I can imagine, with all the vampire hype at the moment, of all the other table name possibilities you could come up with! Twilight springs to mind of course!
A vampire themed night would be amazing, getting away from the usual pumpkins with the orange and black theme, this theme would be far more stylish for a Halloween soiree. Image found on

Fresh Greens and Whites at Villa Bancales, Mijas

Our thanks to Gary for sending us these images of a wedding we decorated here in August at the beautiful Villa Bancales in Mijas.
Using a fresh green and white theme, we were able to do many delightful details for Chris and Keren. As it was a small wedding with just family and friends, each guest had a personal message in an envelope used as place seating. We secretly placed tissue paper hearts in each envelope as an added surprise! Our famous fans were decorated with green ribbons finished off with small cala lilies with diamante, our fresh green chair sashes complimented the theme and of course later on our lantern and candle pack made the whole garden glitter!

Halloween wedding inspiration

If you thought a Halloween wedding theme would be tacky, think again, we found this fabulous inspiration board on With a black and white palette and touches of orange, this theme really does have the spooky wow factor, we love the orange and black candlelabras and those lanterns with the pumpkins in.

Gold shell and aqua wedding at Nikki Beach, Marbella

We loved creating this wedding at Nikki Beach.
It was one of the fallouts from the Los Monteros closure and having met the bride and groom's parents at Los Monteros and planned the wedding decoration and flowers, when we had to change venue we quickly adapted the already gold and aqua theme to a slightly more trendy look to compliment Nikki Beach which included a beautiful gold shell theme. It was all organised by the bride's parents and kept a secret from her! We had all sorts going on from confetti bombs to sky lanterns which I hear afterwards were a huge success :)
We used white orchids for all the bridal flowers and buttonholes, our Moroccan lamps for the table centrepieces scattered with gold shells and decorated the napkins with white crystal ribbons with gold shell decorations.
Our main task that day was to create a chuppah within 4 palm trees on Nikki beach, unfortunately it was extremely windy so mass securing needed to take place, the security had fun watching us, I am sure they were scared of heights regardless of their size!
We finished off the decorations with lots of floating ribbons in white, aqua and golds using beautiful flowers and local foliage, stolen I shamefully add from my neighbours garden, he has some fabulous white bouganvilla!
The result was spectacular and the nightclub was dressed with our candles to make it very romantic for our beautiful bride, our chuppah just about held out against the winds thank goodness. A good time was had by all. Here is our email received from Kia's mother after the wedding.
"Hi Laura, Kia and Darren's wedding was everything and more than we could have wished for!!!
The comments from everyone have been amazing and we have been told that absolutely everyone loved the night including most importantly the bride and groom.
Thank you for all you did to make it what is was!!
Lots of love Lynda Blue"

Gothic style wedding at Tikitano Beach Restaurant

We loved creating this fabulous slightly gothic wedding at the beautiful Tikitano beach restaurant in September, with a stylish deep red and crystal theme.
Gemma was quite clear from day one what she wanted to achieve and apparently the groom, Adam, was allergic to orchids! A no goer then!
We had already twigged that Gemma loved the elegant gothic look so created her bouquet with black leaves and dark red roses, her scheme was deep red table linens covered with crystals, we decorated her chuppah with coordinating flowers that were moved to the biggest top table this year we have ever seen, I think there were over 20 people on it in the end. The napkins were tied with deep red ribbons and decorated with a crystal detail.
Our thanks to Scarlett as always at Tikitano for always making us feel so welcome and to Gemma and Adam's families for allowing us to decorate their special day, and of course to Scott who I am sure has involved us in every wonderful Jewish Wedding in Marbella this year and to David Toms for allowing us to publish these fab photos!
