It’s already a few months since it happened but when I remember it I always get a sweet smile on my face.
It was in September, in the heart of the countryside but at the same time close to the sea, in an 18th century mansion called “Masia Ribas” in Barcelona. The ceremony took place at the back of the mansion in a large area full of pines.
Carlos and I were introduced by a mutual friend and it was love at first sight. I knew that he was ‘the one’ from the moment I saw him. Three years on, here I am, writing about our wedding, our union, and I am still excited.
The wedding was a reflection of the way we are, a simple couple, enthusiastic and happy.
The feeling that comes over you when you are choosing the dress was beyond anything I had imagined. I can assure you that it’s true when they say that brides fall in love with their dresses. Every time I look at it, I just melt. I wanted something different. I didn’t want a classic one-piece dress. That’s when I discovered Pronovias separates which, as you might imagine, come in two pieces. I looked at all the bodices and skirts and picked out the ones I wanted. I even decided to give a different touch to my look and wore a different bodice for the dinner and party. I wanted a simple crepe blouse to wear with a floral crown and the design team at Pronovias created one for me, which was exactly what I wanted.
Both my husband and I love aromatic plants, so we used pots containing these as part of our seating plan. There was one pot for each table and we put cards in them with the names of the people who would be sitting there.
After dinner, the catering company collected up all the pots and put them in wheelbarrows so that the guests could take them home as a souvenir of the wedding.
The bridal bouquet, my crown and the floral decorations, all wild flowers, were created by Flowers by Bornay, all in the same colours.
The photos are by Raúl Ruz, a photographer I met at Pronovias where I work. He made sure I felt at home all the time, which is why the photos look so natural.
