Marbella is one of the most idyllic locations for a Jewish wedding. The wonderful climate combined with the stunning panoramic views and lush vegetation make it the most beautiful and serene location in which to say “I Do”!
At optimum weddings and events, we have been fortunate enough to plan many Jewish Simcha’s but this blog is about the wedding of the beautiful Olivia and her handsome prince charming Paul, which was a truly stunning and classy affair.
This couple chose Villa Tiberio for their magical day. This expansive Italian restaurant is on the Golden Mile and in the heart of Marbella. It is nestled within 6,000 sq. metres of pristine and manicured grounds which have a distinctly traditional and luxurious Mediterranean theme.
The combination of architecturally beautiful marble statues combined with the tropical vibrant vegetation and luxuriant water features make this magnificent Italian Palazzo the perfect Marbella wedding venue. One of the advantages of Villa Tiberio is that its vast size means that you can have 250 guests during the summer months and 200 during the winter months. Despite its size, this venue still offers a wonderfully intimate and magical atmosphere for a wedding.
One of the things which makes Marbella so beautiful and indeed this particular venue, is its beautiful and iridescent flowers. Villa Tiberio has stunning landscaped gardens and so it was essential to find a florist who would capture the theme of the restaurant without taking away from its natural beauty.
Roberto Silvosa is an award-winning florist who is renowned for creating breath-taking floral displays for weddings. He is based in Marbella and is a highly regarded name on the
Marbella wedding circuit for bringing to life some of the most unique and stunning flower displays.
Olivia and Paul chose a combination of white and shades of pink together with natural green leaves to bring their chuppah to life. The top of the chuppah had a frame of dense, beautiful and tightly connected flowers which were complimented by elegant and simple white flowers which hung loosely from the back of the Chuppah and acted as an ethereal backdrop.
Capturing the Moment and Making it Last Forever
Most married couples will tell you that their wedding takes a year of planning, a “bit” of stress and of course a lot of excitement, and then the day is over in a flash. That is why it is so special to capture the beauty of the day and the moments which you may have missed so that you can relive them forever.
Our couple chose one of the best videographers on the Costa Del Sol, Antonio De Perez and completed their dream team with the incredibly talented photographer Jeremy Standley. When it comes to the videography, Antonio has a wonderful way of capturing the beauty of the location and portraying what makes Marbella and the chosen venue so special and aesthetically stunning. Equally, Jeremy managed to capture every moment, every expression, the intimacy of the religious ceremony, and the incredible energy of the party!
Dancing in the Moonlight
When it comes to music for a Jewish wedding, it is a big deal! Most of our Jewish couples want an energetic show band who can perform for the crowd and ensure that all the guests are dancing until the very end.
One of the main parts of the reception for a Jewish wedding is the Hora and this one was no exception. There are many bands who can perform an array of Jewish music to get the party started, but often couples like to fly their band over from London (or their country of origin) where they have seen them do this first hand at other weddings.
Our bride and groom chose to fly their band in from London and they went with none other than the incredible performers known as Club Live. When it comes to talented singing combined with dynamic and zestful performances, this band really is phenomenal.
Makeup and Hair
Olivia chose the incredibly talented makeup artist Nicola McGeorge to do her makeup for the big day. Nicola is based in Marbella and has an extensive portfolio of highly acclaimed work ranging from bridal to fashion makeup. Her work has graced the pages of many well-known magazines including the front cover of the wedding magazine “Confeti”.
The bridal look which Olivia went for was timeless, subtle, elegant and really complimented her natural glowing complexion and sun-kissed skin. By keeping her makeup simple it really drew attention to her bold red lipstick which added an air of Hollywood glamour and also had a wonderful Spanish feel to it.
Deciding on a hair style for a sunny destination wedding is never easy! There are so many factors to consider and it is always best to take into consideration the temperature of the destination when deciding if you want a style which will keep you cool and allow you to dance all night.
Our beautiful bride went for a chic up do with soft loose waves framing her face. She chose the talented stylist Ayelet Garson who helped to create a style which perfectly complemented her elegant gown and makeup. The sign of a great up do and hair stylist is when the creation lasts all night and Olivia’s hair stayed perfectly in place for the duration of the day, including the ever-energetic hora! The hair style was completed with a fabulous hair piece which the bride sourced from The Wedding Gallery in London.
All Things Fashion
There are few things which are more important to a bride than her wedding dress. Often brides will have an idea of the style they want and chose that regardless of the location of the wedding. Olivia however, went for something which really epitomised elegance entwined with a classic Spanish influence.
She sourced her dress from the brilliant bridal boutique Mirror Mirror which is based in London. The dress itself was designed by the incredible Gemy Maalouf who is known for creating stunning designs which are renowned for their use of delicate fabrics and how they focus on the feminine form. Olivia’s dress was a form fitting breath-taking collaboration of soft guipure lace and incredible intricate detailing which made her look every bit the Spanish princess.
Our bride complimented her dress with an elegant pair of shoes which were designed by the legendary Jimmy Choo. From Carrie Bradshaw (that infamous “I lost my Choo” moment in Sex and the City) to Princess Diana and multiple fashionistas and brides, Jimmy Choo is the perfect way to walk down the aisle in style.
Olivia’s dapper husband Paul got his suit from Suit Supply in London and the Bridesmaids were dressed in gowns from The Wedding Gallery in London.
