Beautiful beach wedding in Malaga
Read about Zoe and Matt’s most beautifully styled real beach wedding ceremony in Malaga on Spain’s Costa del Sol.
In September 2019 it was my absolute pleasure to officiate one of the most beautifully styled beach weddings I have ever attended.
Midlands couple Zoe and Matt booked their Malaga beach club wedding through local planners Bespoke Weddings Spain
Zoe and Matt brought their photographer Natasha Ince with them from the UK and wanted every detail of their styled beach wedding in Spain to be perfect. I caught up with Zoe a few months after her special day and asked her how she made her dream Spanish wedding a reality.
The perfect beach wedding dress
Q. Where was your gorgeous beach wedding dress from?
My dress was an Allure Bridal dress called “Nadia”. Strangely enough when I tried it on wasn’t The One but I could vision it being perfect with alterations. These ended up costing nearly as much as the dress but was totally worth it! I always wanted a full lace dress and the flow of the bottom style was quite wavy, so perfect for a beach wedding.
Beach wedding music
Q. You literally danced down the aisle! What song did you choose and why?
I chose “Dreams” by Gabrielle as it’s just been a favourite of mine since I was little, hence why I ended up doing a little jig down the aisle haha! But the whole ‘Dreams can come true’ lyric was perfect to walk to the beach altar and, as soppy as it is, our day was literally like a dream coming true. Even now we’re like WOW! did we do that lol??!
Malaga wedding team
Q. You imagined your special day in Spain for so long, who made it a reality for you?
We were in great hands with Melissa and Eve, our wedding planners, and they introduced us to a great team who helped make our dreams a reality.
- Zara and Sara at Crafty Gurus made the day just perfect they totally captured my vision.
- The DJ Tristan Harper was incredible, he ran with whatever we requested and the dance floor was occupied all night.
- I also have to say the venue and staff at Nuevo y Sur Beach Club (now MataMua Playa) went above and beyond. The food was incredible. I’ve never tasted cocktails so good and the best thing was they even had guests behind the bar making their cocktails, amazing!
- You also perfected our ceremony too. It was fun, loving and just as we wanted i.e. ‘not too long’ haha 😍
The whole day was just perfect, we didn’t stop smiling and laughing from start to finish, our family’s never experienced a wedding abroad and have said it’s the best wedding they’ve ever been to. Out of this world!
Beach styling details
Q. You had so many wonderful elements to your wedding styling… bubble station and wigwam chillout play-zone for the kids, beautiful signage and personalised place settings, doughnut bar, sand bottle wedding favours, a place to put your shoes and soft brushes to clean sandy toes, personalised tissues for happy tears, fans to keep cool ….have I missed anything out?
To add a few little extras, there were also shawls for the evening ‘to have and to hold in case you get cold’.
Parasols for shade and sparklers for the first dance.
I think you got everything else, my favourite was definitely the Tipi tents for the children. Not only did they look great, but the kids had hours of fun and it’s also what I envisioned when planning my day.
