Anna and Chris came over from America with 50 guests for a beautiful wedding at the Parador in Granada, Spain. We were delighted to be their wedding planners for not only the big day but also a whole host of events surrounding the wedding. They started the weekends events on the Friday with a welcome cocktail in the patio at the Hotel Washington Irving located close to the Alhambra where most of their guests were staying. A bus then collected all the guests from the hotel and took them to a Flamenco show at the Jardines de Zoraya in the Albayzin – the old Arabic Quarter of Granada. On the Saturday the bride and her girlfriends and family went to the Hammam for a soak in the Arabic Baths and a relaxing aromatherapy massage. That evening they hosted another evening of drinks and tapas at the Restaurante Las Tomasas out on the terrace overlooking the Alhambra. They also had a chinese tea ceremony here according to the tradition of Anna’s background. Finally the wedding day arrived on the Sunday. It was a beautiful sunny day in September. Anna got ready in her room surrounded by friends and family with the help of Hair and Make-up Artist Ella Megan. Anna had a beautiful bouquet of blush pink and cream roses with olive leaves and eucalyptus. All the flowers were provided by Nerine Arte Floral. The ceremony was held in the outdoor chapel of the Parador and officiated by Padre Peter. During the ceremony they were serenaded with classical music from Musica a La Carta before moving into the patio for a cocktail hour with drinks and canapes and Spanish guitar by Armando. Dinner was served out on the terrace as the sun set overlooking the Alhambra gardens and the generalife. The wedding cake was a delicious vanilla sponge with Strawberries in Cava and sugar frosting provided by lussocake. The day after the wedding Anna and Chris took all their wedding guests on a guided tour of the Alhambra followed by dinner at the Jardines de Alberto where they enjoyed a show cooking Paella, all participating in making it.
