Cheese Cake vs Sweet Cake

October 11, 2013

Having had many requests over the past few months for a real cheese wedding cake I finally caved and attempted to créate something that could match the beauty of the real wedding cakes we are used to at our weddings.  I was not convinced but by decorating it with traditional flowers instead of the usual fruit and displaying it on an elegant console table I was quite pleased with the results.  The wedding guests were all fooled into thinking it was a real cake and were amazed and delighted when then realised it was made from cheese.  Personally I would have been rather disappointed […]

My love affair with Lavender

April 19, 2013

I have just finished planting 300 lavender plants in the gardens of Cortijo Pedro Jimenez so I thought I would share some beautiful lavender wedding inspirations with you.  It is one of my favorite plants due to its pretty muted tones, wonderful fragrance when fresh or dried and of course it is very easy to grow, a definite bonus as I´m not very green fingered!  It works well with so many colour schemes and adds a touch of feminine romance to so many different elements of your wedding day.  Sadly it is not available in our peak summer weddings here but […]

January 2, 2013

Well it´s the time of year when Rachel Rose Weddings start planning the designs for this year´s weddings and I am very excited about some of the recent additions I have purchased for our décor range so I thought I´d share some of my inspiration for the styling of this year´s weddings with you.

Beautifully decorated ceremony areas are top of my agenda I just adore old oak wine barrels and will be using them at our more rustic weddings as cocktail tables, bars  and […]

Cortijo Pedro Jimenez – Kealie & Matt

September 5, 2012

Our first wedding at Cortijo Pedro Jimenez was a huge success that we are extremely proud of.  We were of course very lucky to have Kealie & Matt as our first couple as they had fab taste and style which made my job all the easier, not to mention that Kealie looked like a bride straight from Hello magazine.  They allowed me to organise and style every aspect of their reception and trusted me to put together their day from start to finish so I went about booking all my favorite suppliers and entertainers and they also flew in their […]

El Cortijo de los Caballos – Zoe & Roberto´s Mexican Fiesta

July 24, 2012

When I first met Zoe I was Scared, really scared!  She turned up with a very thick file and pages of questions, charts, schedules and I though woah this woman is organized.  Well nothing prepared me for just quite how organized she would prove to be and I must have asked myself 100´s of times why she even needed a wedding planner, I would employ her in a heartbeat!  It was actually quite wonderful to work with someone who knew exactly what she wanted and I enjoyed every minute of the planning process and miss her dearly.  So it was […]
