Alex and Mikey tied the knot on the golden coast of Gran Canaria …
Alex and I met in Gran Canaria during Pride Week in 2016. I decided to get my friend and I a couple of shots at the bar and after I ordered, my friend had vanished, so I turned to the next guy at the bar and said – “Drink that!” This man would then turn out to be my husband! So, we knew Gran Canaria would be the perfect fit for us. Choosing our wedding and reception venue proved to be the only difficulty. We knew that we wanted to get married in Gran Canaria but didn’t know the area well enough to select a venue on our own. After hearing so many positive reviews about The Perfect Wedding Company we contacted them and they were able to provide the ideal venue based on our needs – Anfis heart shaped Island.
We also made an effort to keep costs down, we had a budget in mind and wanted to stick to this. The Perfect Wedding Company were very respective of this and tailored a package to suit our dream day. Closer to the time we bent the budget a little bit at our request but it was all worth it!
When it came to our attire, we wanted to have the same style of suits just in different colours, we tried on so many but the shops did not have the same style that fitted both of us how we wanted. In the end we ordered our suits from Suitopia.com and after some alterations they were perfect down to every last detail including a red lining to match the rose petals that were scattered all over our venue. Even though we take pride in our appearance we are quite low maintenance with our beauty looks so we did our own hair and a little bit of makeup (a little bit more make up for Mikey!).
The venue was clean and simple with a floral arch filled with red roses and some greenery, and red roses scattered down the aisle. We dressed our chairs for the guests with white linen tied with a red bow. For the evening ceremony we covered the venue with candles and of course, red roses! Simple and romantic! We wanted to incorporate red roses into our wedding, because when I was travelling for work for the first year in our relationship, Alex would always meet me at the airport with a single red rose, so this was significant to us.
Were there any challenges? I honestly have to say zero. The thing that I would recommend most about having a wedding planner is that they really allow you to enjoy the process and run up to your wedding. On the day and night they were always at hand to help with everything, the service could not have been faulted and every single guest commented on how great the team was. I will be eternally grateful for Bernadette and her team at the Perfect Wedding Company for making our day and the process beforehand so special.
