Cristina and Jordi were wed last summer on a beautiful estate in Lleida, in Catalonia, Spain.
Their love story is that of a boy and a girl who met, lost touch and who, on a magical summer night, reconnected and never let go again. With very different appearances but very similar at heart, Cristina and Jordi make an incredible couple. “He is really adventurous and into sports. He’s always in a good mood and his motto is: The best thing about the plan is that there isn’t a plan. I’m an urbanite, I adore shopping and fashion and I often get stressed out. But the best thing is that we are so different. He makes me feel more alive than ever, even in hiking boots!”, Cristina told us.
When Jordi proposed to Cristina she went to the Pronovias store in Barcelona to find a dress that would highlight her personality. “I wanted a dress that would allow me to feel like myself, a reflection of the way I am and feel”.
She tried on several before she finally chose the Diciembre dress from the Pronovias Fashion 2014 collection, which Cristina personalised by changing the strapless neckline for a sweetheart neckline. “I like everything about my dress, particularly the shape of the back and the gorgeous train.”
Cristina wanted to wear two looks without having to change her dress. She did this by combining the dress with two headdresses, one for the ceremony and a more festive one for the celebration. A great way of having two different outfits without changing the dress. For the ceremony she picked a net by Pronovias, which added a chic, vintage touch. For the celebration she wore a headband with flowers, also by Pronovias, a lovely choice for a summer wedding in a countryside setting.
The most important piece of jewellery was her engagement ring, a Tiffany set solitaire. She wore Klein blue sandals by Lola Cruz.
Her hair and makeup was entrusted to the skills of her usual stylist, María from “Raffel Pagés” in Lleida. “There was no doubt that it had to be her to do this important job, because she has known me all my life and knows exactly what I like and what makes me feel comfortable.”
We love how she emphasised her vintage look with red lipstick and nail polish, which matched the couple’s 1965 red Vespa. A truly adorable pop detail. “I knew I wanted to keep my personal style and reject the idea that a bride always has to look extremely discreet. I think it’s more important to be true to yourself”.
Both the ceremony and the party were held at the “Els Comdals” estate in Cervera, in Lérida (Catalonia, Spain), which was lovingly decorated with lights and handmade details by Cal Blay.
