Inspiration

Calling all bohemian brides-to-be: this fabulous festival wedding will knock your socks off (appropriate, really, when our bride and groom are also barefoot). Set in the stunning Catalan countryside, Natashya & Nico could not have nailed their brief better. A naked tipi, petal mandala, Persian rugs and electronic music capture every inch of the festival spirit, whilst lace bridal separates and a purty protea bouquet add the additional wedding pretty. This wedding weekend was clearly so. much. fun. Time to party!

The Vibe Of Our Day

We wanted a day of maximum freedom, inspired by Burning Man Festival. There had to be no rules, no protocols and – most of the time! – no shoes. We wanted a celebration of love and life, shared only with our closest friends (having celebrated with our relatives in France previously). We prepared 48 hours full of live music, artistic expression, emotions and freedom at La Farinera de Sant Lluís in Spain.

Festival Wedding

If the organisers of Burning Man are not frightened, they better be: Natashya & Nico's one-of-a-kind wedding would give any festival a run for its money. Their amazing open-air celebrations are beautifully bohemian, radiating freedom, friendship and fun in the Spanish sunshine. I love how, despite still being in the same place, there is a marked difference between the day and evening celebrations, the free-spirited nature of the former giving way to the free-spirits (literally: hello cocktail bar!) of the latter. Oh, and here's a question for you: Natashya's feather crown or Nico's feather headdress? Both have taken me to headpiece heaven.

What Made Our Day Unique

Our wedding was inspired by Burning Man Festival, with the details of the day having a marked boho character. The ceremony/ritual took place in the middle of a large mandala by the lake, our guests relaxed at low tables with carpets and cushions on the floor, a mural was made between the trees to paint with spray, and at the heart of the celebrations was a naked tipi in which to sing and play instruments. Burgundy colours, feathers and minerals dominated the décor. There was a short break between the day and evening festivities and, at night, guests became Indians and animals for dinner and dancing to our five DJs.
