enchanting natural scenary...
... on the mountains in Port of Sóller
LENA & CHRISTIAN
The start of a new trip…
The best inspiration is the dream of twosome in love.
Lena and Christian, both lovers of trips and adventure, decided to marry in Majorca in an enchanting natural scenary on the mountains of Puerto de Sóller.
Even though we first met them virtually, (via Skype), they breathed love at each gaze. They wished for a simple, yet elegant wedding, honouring the rustic air of the surroundings. Embedded into that wish there was a must, though: sunflowers and lemons had to be present.
Therefore, almost at the verge of fall, we clutched the yellow colour of the last summer sunshine as our inspiring leitmotiv. The chosen tonality –joyful and jazzy- highlighted the entire setting, lending a cheery contrast to each detail.
Lena´s bride bouquet mostly carried wild flowers: chamomiles, sunflowers, gerberas and craspedias. Even so, we added a romantic and elegant touch adding white roses, shaping the bouquet as a circular compact bunch.
The remaining arrangements were made using the same flowers, but leaving a more untamed looking. Some of these were combined with lemon slices into the water-filled vases, what conferred them a fresh and amusing look.
Chris greeted the guests at the doors of the state with a mint-scented lemonade and, as good Germans, beers were also there!
The ceremony was held in the old era of the possession, overlooking the bay of Port of Sóller.
The most moving moment was before the exchange of wedding rings, during “the passing of the rings”. Each close friend took a piece of ribbon or string, representing a wish for the couple, and tied them into a long path through which both rings were slid. In that way, guests and loved ones became involved in the marriage and helped in the wedding rite.
The mouth-watering canapés and banquet dishes were offered by Tot a Punt catering. None could resist tasting one –or more of the multiple options of the varied buffet of desserts… and the nuptial naked cake, made of carrots, mascarpone cheese and forest berries.
