Beautiful Outdoor Destination Wedding in Spain

destination wedding dresses

Álvaro and Rocío wed at a beautiful country house in Spain, where friends and family laughed and celebrated the night away. We asked the bride and groom to share a little insight into the big day and how it came to be.

The location held special meaning to the couple: It is a family country house in Spain. The best thing about it, it’s that you can have the wedding you really want to.

We asked the couple about their favorite moments from the day.

The ceremony because we laughed (we felt so happy) and we were also moved by the speeches.

Sometimes things don’t always go as planned, but in the end it all works out! At first we hired a wedding planner. She had a good taste but didn’t work well. So my mother and I prepared everything: cigar corner, table decorations, floral arrangement, lights, center pieces, the seating plan…

Romantic Vintage Destination Wedding in Ávila, Spain


Cristina and Rodrigo hosted their destination wedding in Ávila, Spain in a beautiful and romantic church wedding ceremony followed by a rustic vintage wedding reception with oodles of personal and pretty details. The couple shared with us the story of their big day abroad!

Marta (Gris Berenjena) helped very much with the planning, decoration and timing. I think it’s very important to have a wedding planner, especially when the wedding is original, like ours.


I was desperate because I didn’t find the dress I wanted. Then I went to Pronovias and saw this dress. It was love at first sight. It’s simple, mikado and with scoop neckline and a bow as a belt.


The church location was very special to this couple: It was the chapel of our school, where we met at 15. I was shy and he was so cute! But finally we started going out together and here we are. I’m the happiest woman in the world!!


 Hotel Palacio de Monjaraz a wonderful place next to the chapel. The cocktails were tasty and colourful.


When guests arrived at the cocktail, there were pallets with envelopes for all, thanking them for being there. It was very moving. Everyone liked it.


Guests moved around the place, it was very dinamic. The menus had checklists where everyone was checking what the/she had already tested. There were always trays with warm dishes.

Gifts for guests: Lottery tickets in envelopes with a positive message. Women were given flat shoes.


The decoration was quite casual, there were no tablecloths. In every table, flowers were accompanied by positive messages. Marta prepared a table for the kids. Moreover, there was soft fruit candies and burgers from McDonalds!!


The fireworks were a big surprise (gift from my brother). And our friends and relatives prepared videos about us, that made all of us laugh and cry.


And in case you didn’t get enough of this sweet pair, here are a few shots from their engagement session that we fell in love with too!

1920’s Themed Wedding in Madrid, Spain

1920s themed weddings

Pia and Abel held their destination wedding in Madrid, Spain, a place close to their hearts. The couple traveled from Munich, Germany to say their “I do’s” (the bride is German and the groom, Spanish). But this destination wedding had more than just a sense of place in an exotic location, it also had a theme that you just might recognize – that of the 1920’s! We chatted with the bride about their plans for this beautiful big day. “First I fell in love with Spain, its culture, its food, the joy of living, its people, and then I fell in love with Abel. I adore my Spanish friends and Spanish people. I knew I had to get married where my heart was and where I felt at home.”

“We love the 20s and were inspired by The Great Gatsby film. The love story, the crazy parties, the style and class of people of that time. Those were the roaring twenties :-)”

“There were many favorite moments. We enjoyed the whole celebration. When I arrived to the church it was great. When we arrived to the celebration’s wedding and saw the guests disguised, it was like being in a film. It’s a pity it only lasted one day!”

An Intimate Elopement in Barcelona, Spain

barcelona destination weddings

Melissa and Will said I do – just the two of them in Barcelona, Spain where they touched down for an intimate elopement in a very unique location. Wedding planner, Laura from Marry Me in Spain shared a bit about this very special venue. “Melissa and Will got married in Bellesguards an exclusive house built by Gaudí in-between 1900 and 1909, being one of his most personal, symbolic and fascinating works. They chose this emblematic place to perfectly represent what Barcelona is. 
The couple wanted a Gaudí wedding, full of architecture, history and meaning, and they were the first ones getting married in this beautiful place, nobody had been getting married there before.”

We asked Melissa to share her experience in planning such a special locale and event. “We decided to elope because we wanted to have a small blessing ceremony in Barcelona (city that we just love), just the two of us, the priest and the photographer. We wanted a ceremony very intimate but romantic with a Gaudi background.”

“We decided to get married in that place in July, when we contacted Carole (our wedding planner), and she proposed us to have the shooting in the Parc Güell and the ceremony in Bellesguards. When we saw the pictures, we knew it was the perfect place for us.”

“Our favorite moment of the day was the shooting in the Parc Güell. The park was empty, because we went there just at the opening at 8:30 am. We could enjoy the views of the park without all the tourists and the crowd. Only peace, relax and a beautiful architecture we could enjoy alone.”
