Ione & Sam were in the later stages of arranging the last little details prior to their dream Ibiza Wedding, when they were served a curve ball neither of them could have anticipated. Their wedding venue had been forced to close!!!
Luckily they had already booked Ibiza Celebrant, Carly Marie, who was quick to the rescue!! Carly quickly got in touch with us at Tapas, and a couple of other venues to see if it would be something we could help with. Sam & Ione then quickly flew out to have a look at the venues, and chose Tapas.
On meeting Ione & Sam there was no doubt we wanted to do everything we could to help them. They were possible the most chilled couple we have ever worked with, they were happy with anything we could do to save their big day.
The couple had chosen Ibiza for their wedding because it was where they had had their first holiday as a couple, and have since returned many times to the beautiful island. It had been a well established dream for them to get married in Ibiza, and celebrate their love in front of a select handful of close family and friends, before starting the rest of their lives together.
Ione & Sam had a limited budget for their wedding. They had been living with Sam’s parents to save money for their wedding, and to buy their dream marital home together. Fortunately the Tapas Garden doesn’t need much to transform it into a beautiful romantic wedding backdrop. With a bit of vision and creativity from the Tapas Events Team, they managed to transform the garden by adding a few romantic touches.
In all honestly, the main objective for this beautiful couple was to get married, and celebrate their love, nothing else mattered…
As well as being a celebrant, Carly is also a singer… after the ceremony Carly sang accompanied by Patrick Levy on guitar. Another truly touching moment on the day was when Sam’s little sister picked up the microphone and surprised the newly weds with a beautiful song, there wasn’t a dry eye in the house.
Finally, we would like wish Sam & Ione a very Happy Anniversary, and to thank them for allowing us to share their story.
We would also like to thank to Carly for all her help assisting with the last minute wedding plans, and putting Sam & Ione in touch with us.
And finally, to Anne for kindly sharing her beautiful photographs with us.
