We are always so excited to work with couples who are creative by profession, as they’re always keen to make their events an all round memorable experience for their guests. Lesley is an aerial performer (we were very much fangirling over the fact she had performed in Cirque du Soleil!) and Brian a video producer. Their story began, fittingly, when they met at the legendary Burning Man festival, and they couldn’t think of a better way to continue their exciting journey together than a destination wedding in Europe’s hippest city. These two were simply one of the most in tune and in love couples we have ever met. Their wedding was filled with joy, beauty and heaps of fun!
The couple rented a beautiful country mansion, Casa Felix, to accommodate all their close family and the wedding party. There they hosted various events during the wedding week, and it was also the setting for their romantic first look on the wedding day. They then whisked their guests over to Masia Ribas, a historical manor house, for the main event – a romantic ceremony and a truly sensational reception party!

Quite literally thinking of their guests’ experience from all angles, the couple decided on an intimate circular ceremony in the pine grove behind the beautiful Masia building. From décor to food to music, Lesley & Brian had clear ideas of what they wanted for every aspect of their wedding. Lighting was also a key part of setting the ambience for the day, and Masia Ribas was the perfect venue to create the perfect romantic atmosphere.
In line with the couples’ creative style, we kept the colour scheme playful, with pastel shades of pale pink and turquoise in the tableware and accessories, combined with some bold pops of crimson for a dramatic touch in the florals. The Orangerie at Masia Ribas was the perfect dinner setting, with the most romantic wedding lighting. Abundant candles in the hanging ceiling installations complimenting the atmospheric mini bulbs in the trees behind the glass panels. Guests had the feeling of dining in an enchanted forest. As we could have expected, the party did not disappoint, and guests danced the night away til the early hours.
We can’t explain how happy we were to have witnessed Lesley and Brian bring all their loved ones together for such a joyful celebration. Their generosity, kindness, and love of life shone is clear to anyone that they meet, and shone through even more as we heard anecdotes and toasts during the day. We feel very privileged to have got to know these two special people.
From the couple themselves, their parents and families, their bridesmaids and groomsmen, and the whole gang – everyone at this wedding was such a pleasure to work with and we are very proud to have been a part of this magical Spanish wedding.
