Why did you decide to get married where you did?
We decided to get married in Mallorca at Finca Bellveure, as we wanted to celebrate in a place that has a meaning for both of us. Toyo is from Barcelona, I am from Paris but we live in London. We go to Mallorca at least 3 to 5 times a year to reset and relax. It’s our happy place! So when we got engaged the location was a no brainer. We also thought it would be an amazing destination for our guests who were flying in from all over Europe. Its gorgeous, sunny and easy to get to!
How many guests did you have?
We had 69 guests and Puy Cermeño captured our day.
Tell us about your outfits.
I have designed my two outfits with my friend Nikeen Patel, the bridal designer of his brand Nikeen Asar. We worked together many moons ago at Topshop and I knew he would be the one for my dress as we have a similar vision, style and signature.
I was looking for something minimal, timeless but with a trendy edge. We started with a minimal tube dress in crinkle silk satin ivory and added the marshmallow sleeves, like I love to call them! A very long train for the dramatic effect and a slit to feel a bit sexy. From the beginning I wanted a birdcage veil as I found it modern and easy to wear.
For the evening I wanted to go short so I can dance like crazy along to the spice girls. The mini was in ivory silk with a 90s edge inspired by Clueless and the top is a tube in ostrich feather with spaghetti straps, again Cher vibes in Clueless!
What was the most important aspect for you, in terms of planning your wedding?
Because we had guests coming from different countries and speaking different languages, communication and everything related to each one cultures was important. Weddings are based on traditions that are very different from a country to another. So we had to make sure the ceremony and the event overall was a reflection of our traditions/rituals and that each guests could “understand” them. My best friend who is trilingual celebrated the ceremony in Spanish, French and English. We felt this was the most important for our wedding, so everyone felt included.
Were there any elements that were important for you to incorporate?
My tableware! I launched my own brand of tableware during the first lockdown so I wanted our tablescape to be Vaisselle. I designed special jugs and vases only for the wedding and bread plates in multicoloured gingham for each of the guests to take home as a souvenir.
Any tips for couples getting married, particularly during the pandemic?
Patience and a GOOD wedding planner!
Are there any vendors that you would like to tell us a little more about?
My incredible wedding planner Isa from The Wedding Social Club, who managed to postpone the wedding 3 times and save the day when it started to pour with rain (unexpected in Mallorca) during the aperitif. She has been amazing all through the journey so anyone who is looking to get married in the Baleares should really get in touch with her.
