Our First Wedding at our beautiful wedding villa near Marbella

We would like to say a big congratulations to Amy and Paul who were our first couple to marry at the Cortijo in October.  They were extremely lucky with the weather and were married in our ceremony garden by the wonderful Lizzie Marriage (yes that is her real name).  This was then followed by a canape reception for the 100 guests on the main terrace and then a beautiful tapas style meal served on the pool lawn.  Amy wanted a simple, understated style of decor with touches of yellows and lots of twinkle so we opted for a beautiful moroccan style white lantern centrepiece on mirror bases with a few scattered yellow rose petals surrounded by lots of glass tealights.  Amy and her sisters made all the menus and namecards theirselves and also the cute flower seed wedding favours, which were all lovely.  The gardens then came to life in the evening with 1000´s of fairylights, lanterns and candles creating a beautiful backdrop to the dancing on the lawn which went on well into the night. I would say the highlight of the night was when the dj played Katie Perry´s ´Firework¨ and everyone lit their sparklers and danced around like no one was watching :)  A big success all round
