Getting married in a castle is closely associated with uniqueness and style in each and every one of the spaces that they offer, and even more so if, in addition to the castle itself, the venue offers a chapel, several halls, a wine cellar, a farmhouse, and even a well-kept garden!
There are venues that will leave you stunned at first sight and will automatically make you want to celebrate your wedding in Alicante. Such as, for example, the moving beauty of the Font de la Roja natural park, just 12 minutes away from the city of Alcoy.
A wedding set in the Castell de Barxell
Our bride and groom, Nirvana and Gadiel, chose to move away from traditional white tiles and walk down the aisle among trees and natural grass; an altar with mountain views covered in fabrics, candles, flowers and large white wooden benches at the venue for the ceremony.
Floricatessen, delicatessen flowers
The flowers were fresh from Ibi, from a company of floral design specialists for all types of venue and event, who created unique bouquets to suit the bride and groom’s tastes.
There was a combination of many untraditional flowers and leaves: orange and red leaves along with the classic green ones, white roses, lavender cotton, pink hydrangeas… An authentic explosion of colour, shapes and emotion!
A banquet ‘in situ’
The castle has a professional chef who freshly prepares all of the dishes.
On a trolley, also in white, there were the most unique appetisers. Freshly cut ham, cheeses, olives, dried fruits and goji berries, among other things.
Before the banquet, the venue was decorated with some centrepieces that, in addition to flowers, had fresh fruits such as pomegranates that added a burst of colour.
On the tables were elegant, silver mesh tablecloths with traditional white table linen and matching serviettes.
The tables were numbered with gold photo frames together with a plate with the menu and invitations, created by Tuinvi Creativa
Tuinvi always surprises us with the invitations
Both the invitations and the accessories came in black envelopes. The invitations were white with the unique flowers, white tulips, that were also featured inside the envelopes, on the menu and on the tables.
The accessories included wax seals, white bows, tassels…
The bride, basking in sensuality
Nirvana was wearing the CINDY dress by Higar Novias, from the Valerio Luna collection. It was one of those dresses that left you speechless.
How? Through the crystal appliqué, its deep plunging neckline, the open back with lace which was also featured on the sleeves, and the chiffon train, but that’s not all.
The skirt was tight fitting to her lower body, creating a mermaid hem and in this way, creating the perfect feminine silhouette.
The makeup was designed by Natalia Fuentes, the professional makeup artist from Alicante, who used the best range of colours and products with undeniable quality.
Nirvana had bronze ombré and smoked eyelids with a range of tones with smoky black eyeliner, and for the lips, a matte rose shade. It didn’t even transfer with her kisses!
Her hair, styled by Bionda Estilistas, consisted of a Dutch braid decorated with tiny hydrangea petals that created little curls that framed her face.
Nirvana never stopped shining!
The elegance of a cigarette suit
Gadiel, wearing a suit by Garrido Ceremonia, stood out in a navy-blue cigarette suit accompanied by a grey waistcoat, a white shirt and a navy-blue tie with a paisley print: the stylish pattern within men’s’ wedding fashion.
