by the sea ...
... in the island wedding
MEIKE & PHILIP
Just one month before the “Big Day” we got in contact with this lovely -and a bit worried- couple that wanted a special wedding in an idyllic surrounding and couldn’t find someone who would understand them yet.
They had very clear ideas indeed. They knew what they wanted, and were just looking for somebody able to translate their wishes into reality. So, there we were, ready to help them and make their dream “Island Wedding” come true!
In Mallorca, in the middle of the cliffs of Port of Andratx, and just some steps away from the sea, we then created a cool and relaxed atmosphere with a tropical ambiance.
As the guests were arriving they had to go to a check-in point, where two friendly children dressed like sea captains stamped their wedding passports and gave them sunglasses printed with the wedding logo.
The ceremony was officiated on a rocky platform that was covered with sand, as the bride always dreamed of a wedding stepping on a sandy beach. All the guests, sat on wooden benches, rattan puffs, coffee sacks and green leaf printed cushions placed over the access stairs, enjoyed the intimate and funny service.
The James Bond-style, triumphal entry of the groom on a boat, and the super original bride’s flower bouquet made with an ice cream cone, left no one indifferent.
Tropical flowers such as orchids, anthuriums, ornithogalum, palm and monstera leaves were mainly used for the deco. White and green colours prevailed, as well as some fuchsia touches. The bridesmaid bouquets and the groomsmen boutonnieres were made with mini pineapples, matching the so created environment.
All around there were marine elements and details like sea shells, coconuts and boat ropes, together with funny swimming floats of varied shapes and colors in the sea.
The refreshing touch was given with pineapples, fresh cut fruits and the unmistakable pai pai raffia fans.
The waiters of the Duke restaurant wore printed floral shirts and flower leis completed the setting, but -with no doubt- the most enjoyed place was the “Tiki bar”, where mojitos, Moscow´s mules and daikiris were the sensation.
Many thanks, Meike & Philip, for letting us take part of your love and this supercool experience of “The Island Wedding”.
