This couple had lots of family connections in Mallorca so there was absolutely no doubt that this was where they wanted to tie the knot for their May wedding.
But they wanted something different from the places they knew- a place that would wow their friends and family. And as we headed to this hotel venue (125 in our venue gallery) on the north-western tip of the island through pine forests and rocky promontories, it felt as if we were entering another world;
The couple fell in love with the beautiful and historic hotel with its lovely sea views and beautifully-maintained gardens.
Fast forward a year of exciting planning later and everything was set for a really special day.
The 80 guests were wowed by the venue and greeted with a welcome drink of cava sangria and fresh lemonade.
Surrounded by the natural beautify of the gardens, Amy had decided on simple flowers and foliage with a dramatic touch. Her bouquet was a wild arrangement of purple flowers and foliage tied with a silver ribbon.
She and her party of bridesmaids and flowergirls walked down the dramatic stone steps to the sound of Porcelain by The Heritage Orchestra for a moving and heartfelt ceremony by celebrant Paul Archer, before the couple walked back down the aisle to Feel the Love by Rudimental.
With the formalities over, refreshing cava and delicous canapes were served on the terrace, with a caricaturist on hand to capture portraits of the guests.
Meanwhile in the dinner area, the tables had been decorated with tall silver candelabras dressed with strands of ivy and flowers, surrounded by stemmed glass and mercuried votive holders.
The guests soon settled down to a delicious feast, starting with marinated scorpion fish and scallop terrine and grilled asparagus with almonds and shallots. Then came beef served with creamy pollenta or grilled sea bass with saffron. Dessert was a mousse of white chocolate and yogurt with lime sponge cake and raspberries.
After the dinner and speeches, as evening fell, the guests were joined by a dancer and two costumed stilt walkers in white and they led the way through the wooded grounds of the hotel beside the sea to the hotel's own special party area.
Here, under the trees and right next to the sea, a dance floor had been set up on the lawn over which sparkling mirror balls and LED lighting created a magical effect.
As the party got underway with a live sax player interspersed with DJ sets, delicious mohito lollies and sweet and savoury crepes were on hand to keep the guests energised well into the early hours.
