Swedish couple Sandra and Martin choose a stunning finca for their July wedding (see Venue 154 in our venue gallery). Perched on a hill with panoramic views of the Mallorcan countryside and set in landscaped gardens, the house has several spacious stone terraces and an infinity pool with its own bar. There´s a boho-chic flavour to the interior, with Moroccan and Berber cushions in rust and orange tones, rugs and wall-hangings to match, ornate metal lamps polished concrete floors and tan leather chairs. The seven bedrooms are simple but comfortable with bright accent colours against pure white walls.
The couple loved the simplicity of the spot and the wedding captured the mood too. They chose a foliage wedding arch in bamboo tied with rope and dressed with garlands of olive, eucalyptus and ivy with touches of pale pink and white alstromeria.
Sandra's wild flower-inspired bouquet combined mini-roses, astrantia, astilbe and veronica with dried oats, olive sprigs, baby's breath and thistle in antique pale pink tones, tied with rustic string.
After the ceremony, the 90 guests enjoyed chilled cava and delicious canapes on the sunny terrace before taking their places for dinner at long tables with white cloths and hessian runners, each with a eucalyptus garland running down the centre. The napkins were simply decorated with sprigs of rosemary and olive, tied with rustic string.
The dinner seating was simple wooden cross-back chairs and above the tables, a sail structure had been constructed and dressed with myriad fairy lights to light the festivities.
After dinner, the party got underway on another of the terraces with the moon rising over the warm hillside.
There was a tasty midnight snack of hot dogs and pa amb oli (toasted bread with olive oil and tomatoes) before the guests were whisked home by buses.
Afterwards, the happy couple said,
"Thanks a million for all the amazing support, flexibility and care, for being so patient and knowledgeable, an creating our dream wedding day! We will be forever grateful!" Sandra and Martin
