Unsuspecting guests may have mistaken Wednesday’s wedding for a children’s birthday party! Lisa and Jez didn’t want a formal bash but instead wanted their day to be as relaxed and truly enjoyable as possible, not just for themselves but for all of their guests, especially the younger ones! After getting married in Gibraltar the couple that live locally here on the Costa del Sol travelled back to the Hotel where they greeted guests with a cava and canapé reception followed by gala dinner and then after party. The bride pulled out all the stops when it came to decorating the banquet room, brightly coloured balloons, assorted chair ribbons and incredible amounts of sweets and chocolate on every available surface, not to mention the cake! Words can’t describe, so hopefully this picture does the trick, a fantastically fun day was enjoyed by all!
Today is the official start to the Sunset Beach Club wedding season! Our first wedding of the year is that of Liisa and Taisto, which as you may have guessed from their names are a Finnish couple. They are holding the ceremony locally and then celebrating with family and close friends at a dinner reception in our Sala Malaga which has been beautifully decorated with red ribbons and rose petals!

I’ve only just got around to uploading my pictures from my recent trip to Dublin! As I had mentioned on an earlier post that this was my first trip to Ireland and I am pleased to say I had a great time there, working hard on our stand at the Wedding Journal Show all weekend and meeting lots of friendly locals. Although the weather wasn’t great, at least I managed to avoid the snow! The show was held at the Citywest Convention centre and there was a great turn out, with lots of interest in getting married here in Spain. My colleagues, Miguel and Claire will be in Dublin again this weekend at the Bride of the Year Show, so if you’re in the area, be sure to visit them at the RDS!
The first English speaking wedding show on the Costa del Sol took place last weekend. The Perfect Wedding Expo was held at the Palacio de la Paz in the Fuengirola fairground. It was the first wedding fair I have attended and I was pleasantly surprised by the atmosphere and the great turn-out of both exhibitors and visitors. There were suppliers present for everything from delicious chcoolate fountains, beautiful wedding dress and evening gown designs to diamonds and jewellery as well as florists, planners and photographers, making it the one stop shop for any bride to be, planning their wedding on the coast. Myself, Claire – our wedding co ordinator and Kerry – our wedding planner looked after the Sunset Beach Club stand, click here to take a look at our stand!
Two weddings in two days! Yesterday was the wedding of Sarah and Derek who got married in a local church ceremony and today is the wedding blessing of Mary and Mick whose ceremony is taking place as I type! Congratulations to both couples!
