Although all the authentic weddings we post on our blog contribute in providing you with visual concepts and ideas for your wedding day, There’s also a lot to learn from reading between the photos and learning about the way people plan weddings.
And today is one these weddings that show how choosing the right wedding coordinator, someone you can confide in and who will fully understand your goals, can make planning your wedding more effortless.
Vaida and Gareth are two couplesfromf Lithuania as well as South Africa, respectively, who reside in London and decided to be married in stunning Cordoba, which is located in Spain.
The day they had held at the La Vieja Cigarra was romantic, floral, and completely personal even though they had done all of the planning onlinee and only visited the venue prior to the wedding (pretty amazing, isn’t it? ).
It was arranged withOpenn the Door Events and photographed with Sttilo Photographer. The stunning wedding offers a variety of inspirations, including the romantic location and ceremony setup along with the classy design and decor, as well as the stylish wedding VW and the ‘Just Married bike.
However, what we like the most is the fact that it has shown us that sometimes (particularly for a wedding with a destination!) how trusting the vendors you hire and beingless ,off can give you the most genuine,e beautiful, meaningful outcomes…Story
Gareth and I first met five years ago when we were working together.
Then we became extremely good friends, and then after a while we began to fall in love with the other.
Af, after over a year of an incredible another Gareth suggested to me. The proposal took place in a romantic stroll along the banks of the Thames River in Windsor, England.
Our wedding day in three words? Best Day Ever.
The wedding was romantic, intimate and elegant.
We opted to have a smaller wed, with just our closest family and friends. Because we are born in Lituania and Gareth is original wherefrom South Africa, it made sure to have a “destination” wedding.
Opi, a close friend of ours Opi runs The Open Door Event Services located in the city of Coroba Spain,. We were constantly seeing advertisements,nts of beautiful venues on her Facebook page. We we decided to marry in Spain and asked her to organize the wedding for us.
We didn’t have any idea of expenses or any other information so ,on New Year’s Day, we got in contact with her and asked to see a sketch of an estimate of our budget, after which, when she sent it to us, it began to seem very real,. We were enticed by the idea of having a real Spanish wedding.
We toured a few places but were enthralled by La Vieja Cigarra.
It’s a stunningly styled location located on a hill located in the Andalusian countryside. We saw pisituatedof the Pergola with its flowers and vines, and we imagined weddings under it.
The color scheme and decor were soft and had an air of rusticity to the whole occasion. The set was perfect for the venue and the venue. The rest of the design, we relied on Opi, who worked with her in selecting the food, music, and flowers, using her preferred vendors.
We share apassiono for bikes, and this has been a motif throughout the wedding, including on the invites and save the dates.
We were able to purchase an old cruiser bicycle to be used for the event. Opi decorated.
Our wedding coordinator, Opi, suggested a few photographers. We instantly fell in love with Sttilo.
They possess an effortless and artistic method of capturing moments that happen naturally.
We are so happy with our wedding photos and are glad we went with our guts to select the images.
Decor & Details
The initial alphabet of our name, V&G, was illuminated to act as a backdrop for the dance floor. When we first had our dance, they continued, and we were dancing in the courtyard, which was very unique.
A romantic candlelit dinner with the people we love most we know while watching the talks, eating delicious food, and being blissfully happy.
We actually only saw the venue just a few days prior to the wedding, so all the planning and organizing part was completed by email. We put all our faith in Opi, and the day was much more stunning than we could have imagined because everything was put together exactly as we had in mind.
Starting with the VW campervan, which is decorated with blushing garden roses and foliage to a single blush rose on every place setting.
I want to add that my favorite part was the bicycle. It added a special touch that truly reflected our love of the outdoors.
