Rachel has been a true entrepreneur for the past 15 years with businesses in both the UK and Spain but with a real passion for weddings, design and event planning she dreamed of developing The Perfect Wedding Venue and set about trying to find a suitable property. Early in 2011 this dream became a reality when she finally found the one, El Cortijo de los Caballos. She set about a full renovation of this vast Cortijo and had it open within 4 months and fully booked within a few months. An achievement she is very proud of!
With so many brides wanting to marry there but having to turn them away she decided to put her mind to finding a second venue. Having such a strict criteria for the venue search, such as location, views, access, guest accommodation etc it took a few years and many viewings later to find the perfect venue and in 2015 Cortijo Rosa Blanca was found. After 2 years of renovation and a huge amount of landscaping the Cortijo opened with much success in June 2017 and is where Rachel is now located full time as Planner and Coordinator.
Johnny is Rachel´s husband and her right hand man. She freely admits that without Johnny there would be no weddings as he manages the venues (a mammoth task) ensuring they are delivered in pristine condition for your wedding day as well as managing the set up and audio/lighting logisitics of each wedding. He has a great team of maintenance staff and is meticulous in his work and genuinely shares a love of the weddings with Rachel.
Johnny gave up his career as a successful Bond Broker to help Rachel develop the business when things were getting too much for her to handle and he hasn’t regretted it since – he vows never to return to a desk job and is enjoying working in the sun and getting his hands dirty.
