April and Jamie flew from the UK to Ibiza to celebrate their intimate wedding in Elixir Shore Club with about forty guests. Their day was captured in the beautiful stop motion wedding video we bring you today by Sasha Weddings. Stop motion video was a new concept to us until we saw this, but we love it and think it suits the wedding day format so well. See what you think! Lots more about April and Jamie’s wedding below, where April has kindly shared the details. 

HOW THEY MET

“Jamie and I met in 2010. The World Cup was taking place and following a disappointing performance from England, we met at a bar in our hometown of Wakefield. We caught each other’s eye from across the room and the rest as they say, is history! I was studying at University in Liverpool when we met, so for two years we travelled back and forth as much as we could to see each other. When I graduated from University I came home to Yorkshire and we moved in together. After five years together, Jamie popped the question! It was spring bank holiday Monday and I had just finished a busy twelve hour shift. I arrived home and the door was locked. I thought this was strange as I knew Jamie was at home. I unlocked the door to be met with a trail of beautiful glitter covered rose petals. I followed the trail through the house to find Jamie at the end on one knee with the most spectacular ring I’d ever seen. He filmed the whole thing and it was one of the most wonderful moments of my life!

DESTINATION DECISION

Following our engagement we immediately began planning our wedding. We both wanted a destination wedding and the previous year we had been on a special holiday together to Ibiza. We just knew that was the perfect place for our wedding and started searching for venues. As soon as we found Elixir I knew instantly that it was the one. We got married and Elixir Shore Club, in Cala Codolar Ibiza. It is such a stunning venue, a converted villa with views to die for of the magical Es Vedra and the incredible Mediterranean ocean. After dreaming about it for two years, we only saw it for the first time the day before the wedding. I was completely blown away with how amazing it actually was, my expectations were exceeded which I never thought was possible! 

PLANNING

Planning a wedding at Elixir was so easy. They are so experienced and professional and I always felt at ease and stress free. They are prepared for every question, every worry and every request for your special day. We decided not to use a wedding planner, as we had two years to plan the wedding we had plenty of time to arrange things ourselves. Elixir took care of everything venue related such as food, décor, the cake etc. I arranged everything else over email, such as the wedding celebrant, flowers, transport and hair and makeup. There are lots of options for wedding suppliers in Ibiza so we were spoilt for choice.

DETAILS

Elixir has a very bohemian, vintage feel to it but with a modern twist which reflects our taste perfectly so our wedding was very much that style. We also had a bit of a photo theme. I made my bridesmaids a scrapbook each full of photos and memories to open on the wedding morning, we had a polaroid camera guest book for our guests to get snappy happy with and our guests had to ‘find their face’ at the table with our polaroid photo place cards. We also had the most amazing photographer who created our stop motion video using hundreds of shots from the day and there are no words to describe how much we adore it. We decided to have a live saxophonist play alongside our DJ during our evening party and I am so glad we did! He was incredible, the atmosphere was the ultimate Ibiza party vibe and he made the evening unforgettable. The most memorable moment for me was walking back up the aisle with my new husband after our first kiss as Mr and Mrs, with all our family and friends cheering and celebrating in our love. It was without a doubt the happiest moment of my life. Pure unadulterated joy! Neither of us have any regrets, it was the best day ever. If we had advice for future couples, it would be to take full advantage of every moment- it really does go as quickly as everyone says! Try not to sweat the small stuff in the lead up to your wedding, on the day you’ll be far too excited to notice them.”
