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.
