Spaces with magic for every moment
Ida’s family home where took place preparations
The Ida’s family house is located in Punta Umbría, on the shores of the Atlantic Ocean, Ida’s holiday home was witness to all the preparations before the “I do”.
The bride wanted to have her house, where she has spent so many summers, present and give it a role in her wedding day as it means a lot to her.
The ceremony in the Church of San Pedro
It is the oldest church in the capital and one of the most beautiful sights in Huelva. The Gothic-Mudejar style building with eight centuries of history was the place chosen by the bride and groom to become man and wife.
This church was built on the remains of an old Muslim mosque, located in the center of a medieval fortress, next to the old castle.
It had to be rebuilt after the Lisbon earthquake, but the result is a lovely place to walk down the aisle.
Ida and Guille didn’t think twice! Because as good believers, their ceremony could not be any other way than religious. Do you know what the Catholic rite consists of and how many churches there are in Spain?
The Cortijo Los Millares was choosen for the banquet
Situated in the town of Trigueros, in the surroundings of a bullfighting pasture. This cortijo has a different charm as it has a few nods to the world of bullfighting, and it is also famous due to the Los Millares cattle ranch.
It has incredible exteriors, typical Andalusian countryside. The bride and groom enjoyed open spaces of the venue during their celebration, such as the terrace, the gardens and the typical Andalusian patios.
A classic and harmonious bride and groom
The bride gave a nod to the past
Ida chose to wear the same dress that her mother had married her in, a pure, plain white dress, with no embroidery, sequins or openwork.
The dress was made of chiffon material, with overlays on the upper part that simulated ruffles, giving volume, a slight transparency and a small train, this dress was all about tradition.
The shoes were by Nuria Cobo, and were suede sandals with a heel and straps that surrounded her foot and were tied at the ankle, in pastel pink.
As for her hairstyle, Ida wore a low up-do with green leaves and white flowers, over which she placed a thin, light veil.
The groom’s look
Guille knew he wanted to wear a morning suit, so he had no trouble finding this grey one by Tom Black with a checkered pattern, just like the waistcoat.
He combined it with a light blue shirt, black leather Oxford shoes from Crockett & Jones, a white handkerchief from Dandity, a Rolex watch and navy blue braces to match the tie, also with a maroon pattern.
Rustic decoration for the Cortijo
Flowers by Clara’s company was in charge to create the bride’s bouquet in green colours, there were used an endless number of different types of leaves. In addition to these, the bride’s bouquet was accompanied by a few white flowers, also of different types. All the stems were tied with a white ribbon.
As well as the bride’s headdress and bouquet, the girls who acted as flower girls also wore a crown around their heads and small salty sprigs.
Entering the farmhouse, the attendants and the bride and groom could see a red and black striped carpet with wooden boxes and characteristic flowers. The venue was also filled with vases, cages, esparto grass baskets and a new kind of flowers in shades of fuchsia pink made all the difference.
It is time for the welcome cocktail and banquet! A lot of round tables were set up in the open-air space.
The touch of flavour was provided by the dishes of Alda & Terry catering, where classic and modern coexisted in each and every dish served on Ida and Guille’s big day.
