Shash and Saul held an exotic destination wedding in beautiful Ibiza, Spain! What made them choose this historic church and magical reception hotel? “Atzaro was chosen for the wedding venue after we visited the hotel for Saul’s birthday the 2010. We were taken aback by the exotic, tranquil and simply stunning environment and atmosphere. That day we decide that Atzaro, Ibiza would be the place they would celebrate our wedding.
San Miguel church was chosen as it is the oldest church in Ibiza and after meeting the inviting priest Father Miguel, who has become a good friend of ours.”
Fitting of the location, a red wedding palette was selected with pops of orange and red against the white linens to contrast the look.
“The theme was true to Ibiza, Atzaro and Spain with the wedding dress and colour scheme inspired by flamenco. Bright and exotic colours to marry Ibiza, flamenco and Atzaro!”
At the ceremony, sunglasses were given to the guests to beat the heat! “Flamenco is the form of fans, ruffles and red colour scheme. Ibiza in the form of white sunglasses given to the gents as favours and bright colours for the flowers.”
“We then used exotic flowers to marry Atzaro with the white church.”
Planning from afar can be difficult, but not for this couple! “Organizing a wedding abroad in a country that speaks a different language is challenging. Luckily we had the most amazing and one in a million wedding planner, Kerry Anne Winton (Ibiza Wedding) who knew all the best people to work with like Gypsy Westwood, our fantastic photographer. All the potential challenges with heat, transporting guests etc where ironed out and planned to perfection.”
As night fell, the reception kicked into high gear with entertainment and red decor fitting of the location.
“The food that was typically Spanish (paella, iberico ham) and modern Ibiza (sushi from Sushipoint Ibiza).”
The flamenco dancers were a big hit at the reception!
No one could forget the fabulous fire dancers!
Then, when the celebration came to a close the couple said farewell from a vintage Rolls Royce dressed for the occasion.
Congratulations to the newlyweds!
