With views like these it's no wonder our gorgeous Bride & Groom chose an outdoor ceremony. The Spanish countryside made the perfect backdrop to say I do, enhanced only by a stunning variety of wild blooms. The views aren't the only thing you'll be sighing at, the first look portraits are incredibly romantic as are the precious moments captured by Raquel Benito of Jessica & Alberto walking down the aisle with their adorable children. Also, major hair envy is happening at RMW HQ for Jessica's beachy boho waves and kimono sleeve Marcela Mansergas gown, so get yourself comfortable and ready to take in all the love, devotion and pretty....
Raquel The Photographer: A lovely wedding in northern Spain , overlooking the estuary of Galicia in a magical setting surrounded by nature. Jessica wore a lovely handmade designer dress by Marcela Mansergas with a precious jewel - ceramic heart gifted to her by her Sister Sophie Aguilera. A wedding full of detail, full of little nooks in which to rest and have a snack and a very organic and natural, floral decoration.

The Dress

Jessica was a very special bride. She wanted a special dress, simple dress but beautiful, with straight lines and very romantic. She found Marcela Mansergas, a young designer from Madrid who is one of the most recognised faces of the Spanish bridal design scene.


The only jewellery that she wore was a jewel-ceramic heart, a gift from her Sister in law who made it by hand. The contrast between the intense jewel and a simple and natural dress was stunning.


Although Jessica & Alberto both live in Madrid, they were Born in Galicia (north west Spanish region), and chose a Pazo (typical Galician construction) over the estuary of Vigo, an ancient stone manor house, surrounded by mountains, sea and nature. With an outdoors dinner-cocktail, facing the sea.


The decoration was inspired by sailors because it complimented the venue and the food they served, octopus (typycal food from the región) and fish. Including fishing nets & buoys. There was also a small outdoor sitting room for the guests to sit down and enjoy their first drink of the night and make them feel at home.


For the floral decoration, Jessica wanted fresh local flowers, with soft tones and colours, mixed with green and eucalyptus. She wanted her bouquet to appear as though the flowers had been picked in the countryside the day before the wedding, making it very romantic and natural, matching the dress perfectly.
