When you are from Northern Finland Oulu, close to where Father Christmas is from, a wedding on the beach with palmtrees, white sand and waves lapping in the background might be a very unrealistic idea, but for Meri and Eveliina the dream of a wedding like this came true. They married each other on a sunny and warm September day this year.
Location for the ceremony was the beach in front of Le Meridien Ra in El Vendrell, outside Barcelona.
Both Meri and her dad are extremely creative. Dad created a pergola in the sand from sticks of Bambu and Meri created wonderful deco items in wood saying Mrs & Mrs.
During the ceremony, JoanRa read parts from the same sex act and just recently in Finland same sex couples have received equal rights regarding adopting children and in all other aspects. Excellent step forward to share!
The rest of the celebration took place at Masia Mas Santo. This house was rented for a whole week for close friends and family, that way they could relax both before and after their wedding.
The set up for the banquet was grand by the pool with gorgeous Cava coloured Tiffany chairs.
Meri’s favourite colour is pink and Eveliina’s is soft purple and these colours were mixed from the exquisite bouquets, to macarons to giant fun balloons…
We created a cute bar with the brides’ favourite drink recipes, straws, shot glasses in cool colours and a sign saying “Trust me you can Dance by Vodka”.
M & E wanted very traditional Spanish food and it was important for them to have a local 0 km catering company, sharing all the culinary delights from the region with them and their guests. All wines were also Catalan.
It was a very warm wedding in so many different aspects, from the temperature this First of September to the loud and genuine laughter from our brides and their guests! Happy and proud to have been a part of their big day! Warmest congratulations!!
