What’s the first thing a couple should think about if they want to get married in Ibiza?
There are so many important things to think about for a wedding, especially at the beginning! It might feel quite daunting, especially for those who want to have their wedding in Ibiza but live abroad. But among all those things, I’d say that the most important thing is to decide the place and date for their wedding. Once they’ve decided those two things (and believe me, that can take quite some time), we can get the ball rolling.
And the last thing?
The last thing the couple has to think about is the stress in organising the wedding. That’s what wedding planners are for!
A wedding is bound to be a smashing success if it has...
Friends, family and loved ones. Those are the most important elements in a wedding.
And doomed to be a failure if it doesn’t have...
A good organisation, enough time for planning ahead and, of course, control over the timings during all the preparations.
¿What’s the trickiest moment in planning a wedding
I’d say choosing the wedding date. And all the elements involved in organising a wedding in Ibiza, especially the guests’ holidays for them to be there on the special day or even before and after the wedding..
What’s the most original request you’ve had for a wedding?
And the most complicated one?
Bringing over Swedish sushi chefs in a made-to-measure flight.
What do you think makes Ibiza such a special place for weddings?
Is there anything that could be improved as a wedding destination?
What’s the latest trend in weddings?
Although every couple has its own wedding style, I’ve seen a clear shift in wedding trends. People now go for natural elements and sustainability, which shows in everything they choose, from the menu up to the entire decoration.
Small or large weddings? What do you prefer?
Both options have something to offer. But I love small, intimate weddings best, they're so special. And big weddings too! They always have something unique and different.
What’s your favourite Mambo Group venue for a wedding?Mambo Group has the luxury of having exclusive venues in unique settings. But it’s not only the venues, it’s also the way they take great care over all the decoration and details to create a unique atmosphere. If I had to choose one... can I choose two? I’d say the amazing sunset from Hostal La Torre and a dream wedding in Cala Gracioneta, against the backdrop of a stunning beach.
When do you feel a wedding has been perfect?
When all the guests have been relaxed and happy and have had fun, and the newlyweds have only focused on enjoying every single moment, knowing that everything was going smoothly. That’s when I can confirm that the planning, the preparations and the execution have been a smashing success.
