L&D’s Mallorca wedding was as charming as could be! Their outdoor celebration focused on family, friends, and magical details that added a personal touch and carefree, rustic feel.

We have a beautiful wedding for you today, it’s a modern wedding that combines two cultures together; Chinese and Western. It’s the wedding of S&J who were married on 2nd June. They had around 50 guests, and the wedding took 18 months to plan. To merge the two cultures and satisfy all tastes, we had Beef in black bean sauce with egg noodles and a beef bourguignon with seasonal vegetables, followed by a delicious lemon tarte for dessert.
The beach offers a beautiful natural backdrop for couples looking to share one of the most important days of their relationship. As such, there’s no wonder why many couples decide to brave the elements and walk the sandy aisle.
To host a successful beach wedding, a couple needs to plan carefully and consider all of the contingencies. Here are some relevant and insightful tips for couples looking to plan a beach wedding.
Protea flowers are a popular choice when it comes to wedding decor because they are versatile and make a statement. With 1600 species of protea to choose from, measuring up to 12 inches in diameter, you’ll be sure to find one that compliments your wedding colors and theme.
If you want a more minimalistic look, try pairing the protea flower with simple greenery. This will highlight the focus flower without being over-the-top. For a more dramatic bouquet, pair the protea with other vibrant colors and unique textures. A boho chic look can even be created by pairing this unique flower with palm leaves or succulents.
With the advent of smartphone technology and social media, it’s difficult to walk down the street of any town or city and not see someone on their phone. People love sharing their news and updates on their social media profiles like Facebook, Instagram, Snapchat and so on. Social media itself has advanced so much that you can now broadcast events live as they happen if you want to. When it comes to their weddings, some couples like to keep a strict control on proceedings which can cause negative atmospheres among guests. Then there are those couples who like to embrace social media on their big day; they look at it as seeing their big moment from a number of different angles.

We had such a wonderful time planning J and A’s exquisite wedding ceremony and reception at this typical Mallorcan finca. All of their guests were surrounded by lush green landscaping and cool summer breezes, red tones with candle light and elegant romantic lighting. This wedding was full of personal touches with a mix of lounge furniture and a variety of delicious foods. The bride and groom surprised their guests with a variety of delicious cocktails as an added late-night treat as guests danced the night away beside the pool. Here are some of the fabulous images from J and A’s wedding extravaganza. Enjoy!
N dreamed of a summer wedding in Mallorca to marry the love of her life D. They chose the stunning wedding reception venue Son Marroig to hold their elaborate wedding reception draped with white flowers, elegant lighting and delicious food for guests to enjoy. N and her bridesmaids all enjoyed a refreshing morning at their hotel in Palma having their hair and make-up done. N was glowing from the very start of the day!
Dreaming of a luxury, fairytale fortress in the Mallorcan countryside? Or perhaps a remote and romantic island retreat with sea views? Whatever your wedding style, if you want to get away from the outside world and celebrate with just your family and friends, then here are some of our favourite luxury venues in Mallorca.
Planning a wedding? Then it’s likely that you’re planning a budget—even if your event is a very small affair. And if you’re including all the usual suspects in your wedding planning, then you’re likely making room in your budget for flowers.
Flowers are something that are typically included in wedding planning, even if you leave out some of the other add-ons. That’s because the couple getting married usually has some sort of flower that they hold or pin onto clothing. That flower can be a way to add a unique color or texture. Or if the flower has meaning for the couple, it can be a great way to include that sentimental approach in your wedding planning.
There’s no such thing as “wedding season” anymore. Weddings are year-round, with many couples looking to monopolise a trend, theme or style for their big day. If you’re attending a wedding in the coming months, you’ve probably already planned out what you’ll be wearing. It’s an important day after all and the best excuse to hit the shops and find a new head to toe outfit.
After picking out a gorgeous dress (careful you don’t upstage the bride – unless you are the bride!) and some equally stunning footwear, you’ll be looking at how to accessorize in a stylish way to tie the ensemble together. This is often the hardest part. But don’t worry! We’ve got you covered. Follow this advice, because there’s no more sure-fire way to make a statement than landing the right wedding hat.
The wedding reception is your chance to celebrate with your friends and family, from getting down on the dance floor to enjoying your wedding cake. However, sometimes your guests will want a break from dancing or chatting with friends, which is why it’s great to always have other options for entertaining your guests.
Have you been given the task of organising a hen party or bridal shower? No pressure, right?! As you’ve probably already guessed, there are a lot of plates to spin to ensure everyone, especially the bride-to-be, has the best possible experience.
Once you’ve booked the perfect venue, sourced or made all the decorations and stocked the fridge with plenty of bubbly it’s time to start thinking about some fun activities to keep everyone in the party mood.
Looking for a unique floral display for your big day?
Wedding flower trends are always changing, but there’s one we just can’t get enough of lately. Whether you’re interested in a statement piece for the reception or an embellishment to hang above the dessert table, a flower chandelier is the perfect way to add effortless ambiance to your wedding day. The best part? Designing your own may be a lot easier than you think plus, you get to customize every detail.
So you bought a wedding gift off your friend’s registry, and searched long and hard for the perfect wedding card to match. While you may have found a great card, when it comes to writing the message inside, it can be a bit more difficult. You want your card to stand out amongst the others, and still be personalized for the newlyweds.
Even though your wedding is just one day, the memory of it lasts forever. Every meticulous detail that you have worked tirelessly to put into place, won’t go unnoticed. It lives on in people’s minds, is talked about for years and is documented by the pictures you and your guests take.
L married A at Sóller church, followed by a reception at a beautiful finca in Port de Sóller. They chose the villa because their wedding was quite small – they had only invited 60 guests and wanted it to feel as private as possible.
A and L picked food that was traditionally Spanish but with a twist. They opted for a two-hour canape reception, and for the main meal they chose a delicious buffet. For a midnight treat they surprised their guests with a paella cooking show.
They didn’t want anything too bold, so for their colour scheme, they chose lots of soft, natural colours to reflect the picturesque surrounding countryside.
C married C at the beautiful Deià church, followed by a reception at a traditional Mallorcan finca, at the end of September 2016. C was baptised in that church, so it meant a lot to them to have their service there.
Celebrating in an old traditional finca felt different and non-traditional for the couple. The fact that it had both indoor and outdoor spaces for guests to mingle was awesome. We arranged seasonal flowers and created bunches for all the tables at the reception. They didn’t need much decoration as the venue itself was so charming.
As a season of sunshine, beautiful flowers, and lush green landscapes, summer is the perfect time of the year to say “I do” in the great outdoors. Get hitched without the fear of unpleasant and uncomfortable glitches by making sure to include these five essentials in your outdoor summertime wedding.
Even the mildest of summer days can quickly lead to dehydration if you stay out in the sunshine too long. Keep you, your new spouse and in-laws, as well as your wedding guests hydrated and refreshed by setting up hydration stations at your wedding venue.
Do you want big and formal or small and intimate? The style of your wedding dictates how many people you’ll want to attend. If you like the idea of a lot of guests but have a limited budget, think about having a cocktail-style reception rather than an expensive plated dinner.
Your wedding day is a day that you’ll want all of your friends and family to remember. Therefore, you’ll want to make it easy for everyone to share the day’s most memorable moments. If you’re a social media savvy bride, chances are, you’ve already picked out your wedding hashtag. How about taking things to the next level by creating a customized wedding Snapchat filter to make your wedding extra unique?
Wedding dress trends may not be nearly as extensive or short-lived as ready-to-wear, but they do still exist.
Now that there’s more flexibility in terms of what constitutes a “wedding dress,” bridal designers these days have the freedom to experiment with new silhouettes, colorways, and materials to reinvent the look every season. The new Pronovias designs in 2018 can be characterized for several trends, such as unexpected backs, amazing jewelled embellishment, and new fabrics and combinations of fabrics.
Inspired by their shared love of Mallorca, M and Ø from Norway planned an intimate al fresco wedding on the island, surrounded by 80 partygoers. It was love at first sight with the venue, because it had everything they wanted, and the style of the space was unique.
N and S from the UK wanted their wedding to be a celebration of their love with friends and family and they wanted it to be an intimate event. As lovers of Mallorca and avid travellers, they knew right away they wanted to have a Mediterranean wedding, and the island was the perfect destination.
Free-spirited couple H & A from the UK but living in Australia, both knew they wanted a wedding abroad, and Mallorca’s romantic landscape fulfilled all their destination dreams. They celebrated their big day with romantic and nature inspired touches. From a Spanish guitarist to wild flowers – the style of the wedding effortlessly blended the couple’s personal experiences and tastes. Fairy lights strung around the finca’s garden created a beautiful, intimate, and relaxing atmosphere for the couple’s celebration. We loved organizing this beautiful wedding!
Grab your bags, because this romantic destination will have you wanting to board the next flight to Spain! A & A from Germany hosted their Mallorca dream wedding in a small restaurant by the sea. With a super-select group of 50 guests, it was the ideal location for their celebration.
With a romantic and nautical theme, A and A’s wedding perfectly represented their laid-back approach and everything about the day, from the colour scheme to the wedding favours, was beautifully thought out and reflective of the couple themselves.
Birthday celebrations recognize the milestones in a person’s life and these events can be casual or formal. They may be very intimate, with just a few close friends and family; or they can be grand celebrations. In general there are two types of birthday parties: children’s and adults’ parties and each presents its own set of challenges.
Finding the perfect wedding venue is a lot like falling in love: For some, it’s a long, careful process, others know instantly. When M&G arrived at this seaside location in Mallorca, it was love at first sight.
When planning a wedding every detail can be worked out and executed perfectly, but unfortunately, one thing you cannot control is the weather.
We think this particular wedding is a perfect example of how rain need not ruin your wedding day – it can make it that much more memorable and beautiful! M&T chose this historic, romantic finca in Mallorca for their wedding. They tried to keep it simple and more like a relaxed party with family and friends from Germany. The couple chose this venue because not only was it big enough to accommodate all of their family and friends, but M has been coming on holiday to Mallorca since she was a child and the island is a very special place for her.
What do you get when you mix a very happy couple, a gorgeous Mallorcan country house in Spain and talented wedding planners? L and F´s magical wedding day! The Swedish couple is from Stockholm, but they planned a relaxed and rustic wedding in Mallorca, one of their favourite destinations, for their nearest and dearest, so they could treat their guests to a wonderful weekend of Mallorcan culture.
Beyond the usual wedding festivities with Swedish traditions, they also planned a beautiful trumpet accompaniment during the ceremony, a Spanish guitarist during the cocktail reception, and a get-together party in a typical Spanish tapas bar in Palma. The gorgeous images below tell the whole story!
When M and S, from Ireland, decided to get married in Mallorca, they asked us to create an intimate destination wedding for them and their 40 guests.
They were married on our beautiful island on 16th April 2016, in one of the most romantic locations in Mallorca – a magnificent church by the sea, followed by an outdoor cocktail reception overlooking the Mediterranean.
One of the main reasons M & S chose to be married in Mallorca was because of the beauty of the island and its unique locations. The church was spectacular, it had a really romantic and cosy feel, and the setting on the cliffs above the sea was amazing. The couple had beautiful weather and the reception was held indoors and out. All of this, coupled with the fact that Mallorca has some of the best beaches in Spain, made it an ideal place for their destination wedding. “It was so beautiful and romantic,” says M, who has some advice to share with brides-to-be. “Just try to enjoy every moment of the day because it flies by so quickly.”
Our Latvian couple D & K wanted their wedding to be minimalist and set in a natural and beautiful place, so they decided to look for unique destinations. They came upon the idea of a destination wedding in Mallorca and their symbolic ceremony was performed on Saturday the 2nd of April, in a sunny, beautiful historic finca in front of the Mediterranean Sea. It was filled with laughter, tears, and joy and the acoustics from the guitar were truly romantic. It was a magical place in which to have their wedding.
Mallorca is the perfect destination for your dream wedding.
Our beautiful island sits in the crystal blue waters of the Mediterranean, and is home to warm and pleasant weather conditions from May to October, so you’re almost guaranteed a perfect day. The island is also home to first-class wedding professionals who can help you with all the details of your Mallorca wedding. Below we have selected the top six reasons for choosing Mallorca as your dream wedding destination!
Ana and Pablo’s wedding took place in Spain with a beautiful rustic theme. Ana was working in New York and Pablo was a professional photographer. When they met in Alicante, the attraction between the couple was so strong that Ana decided very quickly to return to Spain. Four years later, he proposed in Central Park.
And the wedding… it took place on the Spanish mainland and accurately reflected the personalities of the couple. The wedding magazine Telva reported that it was relaxed, fun and there was a lot of attention to detail, as you would expect from a memorable wedding on Mallorca.
We hope you enjoy it as much as we did!

Are You Looking Forward to Celebrating Your Marriage in Mallorca? Congratulations!
Many people come to Mallorca to get married. However, non-residents who do not live in Spain are not allowed to marry in a civil ceremony. Therefore many couples decide to have the civil wedding in their country of origin or residence, and hold a second, religious or symbolic (also known as a wedding blessing), ceremony in Spain.
Ideally it should be once you have chosen your gown and the bridesmaids’ dresses. There are no set rules for timing, as all weddings are different, but preferably you should leave at least a couple of months before the day, to make sure everything is planned to perfection and ready in good time.
2015 was our first year attending the Momad Wedding Show in Madrid. We found it extremely beneficial, and although we were not blown away, there were still enough good elements to make the trip worthwhile. The event is a must attend wedding show for wedding couples, wedding consultants, wedding planners, and wedding professionals. Reception venues, photographers, make-up and beauty care products, catering services, wedding cars, decor ideas, and bridal registry and bridal wear were showcased by the exhibitors in this show.
