An intimate wedding on a gorgeous beach with a couple madly in love and delicious food… it sounds like something out of a dream. But just take one look at the wedding of these two cuties, who said “I do” overlooking the blue Mediterranean sea, to realise that dreams, do come true!

Natalie & Marc are a stylish couple from England, who always knew that they wanted to get married abroad in the sun. So what could have been more appropriate for them than an intimate beach wedding in Ibiza?

The celebration of their love story took place at the tranquil beach of Pura Vida and included a sand unity ceremony as well as a party that lasted until the morning hours. Studio Mr Smith captured the entire celebration beautifully with his detail-loving style, including the emotional moment of the groom in floods of tears after seeing his beautiful bride walking down the aisle – so romantic!

We love the simple yet elegant atmosphere of their nuptials, the bride’s outfit and makeup is so stylish and dreamy!

Along with their friends and relatives, the couple spent the days before the wedding in a beautifully restored rural Ibizan house. On the day of the wedding, while getting ready, Natalie and her Mum with the bridesmaids enjoyed the hours leading up to the ceremony, in the comfort of the villa – of course some pizza, lots of champagne and plenty of fun were involved!

The ceremony and reception was held at Pura Vida beach restaurant, near Santa Eulalia. The restaurant sits in a picture-perfect little cove, off the beaten track. Here, on the beach overlooking the blue Mediterranean sea, the couple got married with a beautiful blessing.

Natalie & Marc wanted the ceremony to reflect them as much as possible, so as a conclusion to their vows, before exchanging the wedding rings, the couple put their own twist with a dreamy unity sand ritual – which perfectly fits the natural side of the island. This ritual symbolises the coming together of the two families into one new family by blending the sand together.

When it came to planning their wedding menu, Natalie & Marc decided at the very start that the two most important things where tasty food and plenty of it. Luckily, this aspect was taken care of as soon as they picked Pure Vida. The restaurant satisfied all their requests by providing a mouthwatering menu – with fresh food and big portions. The Pura Vida team was very professional and, in the end, all the guests were super satisfied.

Music was important for the couple. A sax played chilled vibe music on the beach and gorgeous songs during the whole reception, entertaining both the newly-wed couple and the guests.

The cake was a beautiful 2 tier white wedding cake dressed with pink flowers made by Samos Deli.
