Marina & Sergi
The Colour Issue is filling our colour loving hearts with so much joy this month and today’s wedding honours the brights differently. A bright bouquet, a bright pair of shoes and a Spanish villa venue that has us dreaming of long summer escapes. Add in plenty of champagne, a boogie-woogie worthy first dance and their favourite people and this is a match made in heaven. Meet Marina and Sergi and their wedding, captured beautifully by Ariadna Balart of KUNIK STUDIO.
It was a romance set in motion when these two were children, tells Marina. “We have been together for 13 years, we met when we were children. But immediately we knew that our relationship would be forever.” The bride to be popping the question herself. “We both wanted to get married but he didn’t decide to ask me. One day when we looked at wedding farms, I knelt and asked him.”
“The flowers were very cheerful, with lots of coloured and silver flowers. We use olive branches because it is a very important symbol for my family” tells the bride of the bright and beautiful floral details styled by Floristeria Orquidia.
The bride wore a gorgeous lace gown by L’avetis. Marina sharing “I was very clear about my style and wanted to feel myself. My mother helped me with everything. On my wedding day, I wore earrings from my grandmother and a bracelet that my mother gave me, the shoes were turquoise and the dresses had two pieces.”
The couple included plenty of olive branches as a special nod to their family.
The couple booked a homestead in Gironella, Berga for their wedding, “It was a rustic house in the middle of the field, in a very special place for us” explains Marina.
The groom walked down the aisle to his brother playing the electric guitar, the bride following soon after with her father on her arm.
Of their ceremony, Marina remembers “We wanted it to be emotional and natural. It was done by a friend of my mother and our friend’s readings. We cried a lot, it was beautiful.”
Guests were gifted small trees to take home and plant themselves as wedding favours, a nod to the ceremony where the newlyweds planted their tree as a commemoration.
The dancing? Not just fun, but an utter surprise from the newlyweds to their guests, the pair taking to the floor, the bride’s skirt coming off to reveal dance-ready pants underneath, much to the delight of their friends and family. “The whole day was unforgettable, from the moment I woke until the end of the night. But the dance-off we rehearsed? Lots of fun!”
“It was an unforgettable moment for everyone, we started dancing “You’ve Got a Friend in Me”, by Toy Story. Then the music changed, I took off my skirt in front of all the guests. We danced a swing dance to, “Hit the road, Jack”!”
“Our favourite photos are the last two,” remarks Marina. “We’re dishevelled, looking happy in the light of the light bulbs.”
A big congratulations to you both Marina & Sergi! Thank you for sharing your beautiful day with us. Thank you also to KUNIK STUDIO for today’s beauty in images!
