Hi, I am planning a very small wedding of 4, do you accommodate such requests?
Today’s post is about a question we get all the time.
An email was sent to us by Robin B. asking:
Hi, we are planning a vacation for 2016 July – August. We are considering a wedding. However, we would like it small only 4 and very maybe 8 persons. In case of 4 persons it would be just me my wife and our two children.
Do you accommodate such wedding requests?
To answer your question Robyn: yes, we do!
We plan many small weddings in fact, size does not matter to use, we love the smaller weddings a lot!
For this reason, we have developed an elopement package: there is one package especially for symbolic weddings (this is the romance package), there is one for religious weddings and one for civil weddings.
You can find more information on everything that is included in these packages here.
Small weddings can be just as special and planned into detail as their larger “brothers and sisters”. We will create a wedding day time able for you, a budget, a checklist with the names of all vendors working with you on your day and make all the required bookings for you. So in that aspect, nothing is different from any other wedding planned here.
Our photographer will make sure you go home with some fabulous images too, to see an example of another small wedding photo shoot of only two (bride and groom) you can have a look here to see how your images can look like and here if you fancy panoramic views and here if you are looking for a seaview setting and one more example of a church wedding here.
Just let us know what type of wedding ceremony you are looking for, that is the start of everything.
Here is an example of a wedding day time table for a small wedding
|13.00h||Hair and Make Up bride (and others?)|
|15.30h||Start photographer: he will meet the bride at her room or villa and take some pictures there, after which he will accompany her to the ceremony venue|
|16.00h||Start of ceremony|
|16.15h||The end of the ceremony (approximate time, depends on which type of ceremony you pick)|
|16.15h||Recessional walk bride and groom, music is playing|
|16.30h||Time for kisses and congratulations|
|17.00h||Time to have seaside drinks in the old town & a photoshoot|
|18.00h||End of photo shooting with the wedding couple. (If you would be open for it, we prefer to plan 1.5 hours for the photos hoot)|
|18.15h||We start slowly walking to the restaurant you have chosen or you may wish to go freshen up first|
|19.00h||Start of dinner service|
