Getting Married in Spain….

November 28, 2012

A question I am regularly asked by my couples is “Will our wedding blessing ceremony feel like a real wedding?” As getting married legally in Spain is not possible unless you are catholic or a Spanish resident my couples often worry about whether their Blessing ceremony will feel like the real thing… my answer is always yes. My advice is to have a very low key visit to your local registry office in the UK before coming over to Spain.  You should see this as only a formality and similar to getting a licence for legalizing your wedding in Spain.  […]

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 […]

Congratulations to Vicki & Gaz who were our first couple of 2012 to marry at El Cortijo de los Caballos.  We were blessed with amazing weather and Vicki looked stunning in her vintage style Justin Alexander dress.  They wanted a relazed and informal wedding with a rustic but romantic influence which is just my style, so I was in my element!  Hi Rachel, Cant believe its been three weeks since our big day, it has gone so fast but everyone is still talking about what an amzing wedding it was! We wanted to say a massive thank you for all […]

My Own Wedding

March 20, 2012

Whilst we are all waiting patiently for our first wedding of 2012, I thought I´d add some photos of my own wedding from last year.  Unfortuntely, we couldn´t hold it at the Cortijo as we were unable to open in time so we held it in our local village of Benahavis and were luck enough to marry in the beautiful botanical park at the bottom of our road.  A few of our lucky brides are also marrying there this year so more photos to follow.   Photography by Anna Gazda @ www.limelight.pl Planning & Styling by Me

Our First Party at El Cortijo de los Caballos

July 12, 2011

Well we thought we deserved to be the first to use the Cortijo for a party so we decided upon our daughters 1st Birthday/Christening party.  The weather was fabulous so we instructed our guests to bring swimwear as we knew we would not be able to keep them out of the pool.  The very retro pool table and chairs went down a treat with our guests enjoying endless jugs of Sangria and Pimms whilst keeping cool in the pool.  Scarlett Rose had a fantastic time and absolutely loved being centre of attention for the day (not that this varies from […]

Our Beautiful New Rooms

May 3, 2011

Well I am so pleased to say that I have finally finsihed the refurbishment of all our Casitas and now just have to tackle the 3 bed cottage and indoor bar area.  It has been a struggle and very hard work but well worth the rewards as we have just taken our 5th wedding booking and 3rd holiday booking 🙂 I feel that I have done the Cortijo justice in retaining all of its character and working with the property rather than against it.  It really is a one off beauty in the most amazing location.  How lucky I am […]

El Cortijo de los Caballos in now under new management by me :)

February 13, 2011

Well after many years of searching I have finally found my ‘Project Wedding Venue’.  I found El Cortijo de los Caballos purely by chance when searching for a wedding venue for a client. The Cortijo was originally run as a small holiday complex in the 80’s and 90’s but has not been used much for a quite a few years now. When I came to visit the Cortijo for the first time I realised I had finally found the perfect property for me to develop as a truly wonderful wedding venue and after a few discussions with the owners they decided to […]
