As soon as I met Georgia & Shane I knew their wedding would be a great day. Both living in Bahrain they chose Ibiza as their favourite spot to bring family and friends to celebrate and where better than at Elixir?
The Getting Ready.
Georgia & Shane rented a beautiful villa close to Ibiza town. Unlike a lot of hotels I find myself in it had bags of room and loads of light. Perfect for all those bridesmaids, Mums and the odd happy baby. And bliss for this photographer! The dress by Suzanne Neville and shoes by Badgley Mischka
were perfect for Georgia and totally suited her style.
In their own words I’ll let Georgia & Shane tell their wedding story…
How did you both meet? And how did Shane propose?
Shane and I met at university back in 2011. We met through mutual friends and then became inseparable once we were official! He proposed in Ibiza at Cotton Club at sunset. We had just ordered our food and he kept asking me to go and get a photo on the observation deck! I was annoyed because it was so hot and thought it would be rude to get up whilst our food was on its way! Once we were up there a lovely gentleman took a few pics and on the last one he got down on one knee! Luckily the guy filmed it for us too so its really lovely to have the video to look back on. I’m so glad I actually got up for it! haha.
Why did you choose Ibiza for your wedding?
We always knew we wanted to get married abroad somewhere warm and with amazing views etc. We automatically thought Ibiza as that’s where we were engaged and we absolutely love the island! Its also sort of a middle ground for all of our guests as they were coming from all over the world!
Why did you choose Elixir for your wedding? Would you recommend it to others?
I came across Elixir just through google searches for venues in Ibiza. I had also looked at other gorgeous Ibiza venues but as soon we we found Elixir I just instantly knew that was where I wanted to get married! There aren’t any words to describe how highly I would recommend it to others. The pictures do it absolutely no justice whatsoever… We hadn’t actually seen or visited the venue until our run-through so it was definitely a risk. The place is just absolutely breath taking. It was just perfect from start to finish in every aspect, including the staff who were all amazing!
Favourite moment of the day.
This is really hard because there are so many! Shane’s favourite moment was being introduced as Husband and Wife when walking to sit down to dinner. Mine I think was half way through our first dance. (which was also probably the most awkward part of the day!) Shane signalled everyone to come in and join us, and literally every single person joined in and we were all singing at the top of our voices. I really enjoyed that moment of having all of my nearest and dearest around me having such a good time.
Did your guests enjoy their visit to Ibiza?
Yes! Most of my friends (and me) cried when we had to leave! I just love Ibiza so much because there’s a lot of stigma around it. I don’t think people actually realise how beautiful the island is until you’ve actually been. Obviously you can go out and party too but there’s something for everyone which is what we love about it.
Again, another difficult question as there are so many amazing places to eat!
Shane’s favourite restaurant was a little quaint place in the Old Town called 1805. There were only a limited amount of dishes on the menu but they tried one of everything between their group and said that everything was incredible! There was one chef and one waitress for the entire place (granted it was a small place) but the service was top notch and the food was to die for!
My favourite I think would have to be Cotton Club as not only does it hold a special place in my heart, the food and views are spectacular! It’s a little on the pricier side but so so worth it! We went there again this time with family and they loved it too!
As for our favourite beach, we actually only visited one whilst we were there! It was Cala D’hort beach, not too busy and relatively small with a few restaurants- just what you need!
A short review of your photographer 🙂
Anne was one of the Photographers recommended to us by Leah our wedding planner, after looking at her work we decided to go with her and i’m so glad we did. Not only is she an amazing photographer, but is such a lovely person to work with too. We met with Anne a couple of days before the wedding and she totally put us at ease about everything. She turned up on the day at the villa we were staying at and honestly we didn’t even know she was there! She’s such a professional at what she does and the photos have turned out so much better than we ever expected! I would 1000000% recommend Anne, you really won’t be disappointed!
