Ashley and Omeed’s wedding in the Ripoll region of Catalonia was a truly unforgettable experience. With guests from around the globe, the couple wanted to create a special and unique celebration that would bring everyone together. The stunning venue Castell de Llaes was just the perfect location for this celebration, overlooking the breathtaking nature of the region.

The couple incorporated the Persian wedding tradition “Sofreh Aghd” into their ceremony, as Omeed is of Persian origin. The Sofreh Aghd is a beautiful and meaningful tradition that dates back to ancient Persia. It is a spread that is set up, usually facing east, and is decorated with various items that symbolize different aspects of the couple’s life. The term “Sofreh” means spread and “Aghd” refers to the wedding ceremony.

The Sofreh Aghd is usually set up by the bride’s family and is an important part of the Persian wedding ceremony. The spread includes items such as a mirror, which symbolizes light and brightness, two candelabras, which represent the couple and their future, a tray of seven herbs and spices, which represent health and healing, and a basket of decorated eggs and almonds, which symbolize fertility and new beginnings.

We had some great partners who contributed to making this wedding a success. The stunning flowers were made by Esperança, the delicious catering was provided by Sauleda, and Teresa did an amazing job with hair and makeup. Of course, no wedding is complete without beautiful photos, which were captured by the talented Andrea.

The evening was filled with love, laughter, and rock tunes by the Bob Standards. It was a perfect way to end a perfect day, and the couple will cherish the memories of their special day for years to come.
