Mariola and Hector were married in the Girona area of northeast Spain, not too far from Barcelona. The couple knew they had found the perfect place to celebrate their wedding the moment they set eyes on Castell de l’ Empordà, a traditional style castle featuring many modern architectural elements- bringing an element of comfort not always associated with castles. We love that the ceremony was held- in true Mediterranean style- in a lovely olive grove on the grounds. The day was captured by Alberto Ballbé, and Anna from Sophie Kors Weddings shares some of the wedding details with us below.

“For the ceremony decor, wicker baskets full of flowers and were placed near the olive trees, with ceramic clay pots marking the aisle and straw bales as seats for the bride and groom. The bride arrived for the ceremony in her father’s vintage car. Following the ceremony, the guests had appetizers in a clearing with stunning views of the Empordà landscape. The bride DIY’d their table plan which was hung on the branches of the pink bougainvillea in beautiful Mediterranean style. Tree bark centerpieces were used for the tables which were dotted with glass jars decorated with ribbons and wildflowers. The couple chose heart shaped cacti as unusual guest favors, and used corks as guest place names. All the stationery was prettily matched in the same style and font. As a surprise for the guests, tables and wrought iron chairs with hundreds of candles were assembled around the dance floor. A crepes caravan was parked nearby- an alternative late night snack, but after all who can resist a caramel or chocolate crepe after a night of dancing? As for us, we really enjoyed working with this fun loving, beautiful couple and sharing their day with them!”
