LENA AND ROBERT
A PURPLE PARADISE IN THE SOUTH OF SPAIN
LENA IBRAHIM AND ROBERT DERIAWISH HELD THEIR MAGICAL WEDDING AT VILLA PADIERNA IN MARBELLA ON 14TH MAY 2016
Robert and I loved the idea of hosting a wedding like nothing our friends and family had seen or attended before, something different that would stay in people’s memories. We wanted to create a purple paradise, a dreamy and romantic space that our guests could get lost in. Candles, glass mirrored tables, glass lanterns and huge purple flower centrepieces all helped to create the romantic look we had in mind.
We held our ceremony and reception at the Villa Padierna Palace Hotel in Marbella, Spain. From the moment we entered the lush grounds, we were transported into another world. Robert and I instantly fell in love with the luxurious elegance of the space. There are so many beautiful areas in and around the hotel, and we were spoiled in terms of which areas to host our wedding, cocktail reception and dinner.
We worked with florist Pedro Navarro to transform our ceremony and reception spaces. The ceremony set up was breathtaking – all shades of purple flowers framing a gazebo covered in delicate purple fabric, with huge vases of flowers. Pink and purple hydrangeas featured throughout the day and were used everywhere – they looked amazing!
On the day, I was overwhelmed by how everything came together. Everyone we love was with us, the weather was amazing and all the hard work paid off: it was the perfect day.
