A Romantic Farmhouse Wedding in Mallorca
The Location: Mallorca, the largest of Spain’s Balearic Islands, has it all – stunning beaches, mighty mountain ranges and historic little towns (many unchanged for centuries). Finca Es Cabas is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. This peaceful ancient countryside property with Arabic origins dates back to medieval times and is just 15 minutes drive from Palma. Es Cabàs offers all the comforts of modernity while maintaining a sense of authenticity to our heritage.
The Vibe: In vogue romantic Moorish farmhouse. This beautiful country estate (finca) is jam-packed full of traditional features – impressive archways, a lazy canal, ornate fountains and outstanding facades, billowing with Bougainvillea and greenery. This was enhanced by a breathtaking al fresco banquet-style table with stylish yet rustic details like smooth elliptical crockery and rayed rattan placemats.
The Details: Feminine hues of pink and lavender were artfully blended with the finca’s stone facade. The soft, oh-so-elegant palette also incorporated almonds, vanilla, toffee taupe and camel tans. Soft cream petals and fluffy pussy willows were dramatically contrasted with twigs dyed black and sepia. Our bride wore a dress designed by Australian designer, Karen Willis Holmes, called The Audrey. Its fitted corset, delicate netted skirt, and remarkable netted puff sleeves perfectly complemented the chic country vibe.
- The soft and subtle colour palette respected and married perfectly with the historic farmhouse details of the finca but also added a modern edge.
- A strong sense of romance was created not only through the gorgeous colour palette but also due to the thoughtful florals that were selected and the texture and silhouette of the bride’s gown.
- If you select a venue with outdoor space, make the most of outdoor spaces and the gorgeous ready-made backdrop, courtesy of mother nature.
