Real Ibiza Wedding : Whitney & Tom
Oh how we love the couples we work with! We bond over dreams, flowers, colours, bounce ideas off one another and chat as if we’ve known each other for years. It’s such an honour to get to know each of our couples so personally and seeing the steps they take to plan their dream wedding is one of our most favourite parts. Whitney & Tom, our gorgeous London couple, chose Ibiza as their dream destination and with a little venue search, they’ve found ‘The One’ in the form of a stunning agroturismo finca in the middle of the island. Surrounded by lush palms, the prettiest bougainvillaea and traditional spanish architecture, our couple are bound to fall head over heels when we visit in April. Let us give you a little introduction to our southern sweethearts as you follow them on their Ibiza wedding planning journey…
How did you both meet Whitney?
My friends, Verity and John, went travelling around the world. On one of their flights they met Tom, who was flying to Australia and ended up spending a lot of time with him over there. Verity and John came back and told me all about this great guy they met travelling who they thought would be perfect for me – the rest is history!
How did Tom do the all important proposal?
Tom proposed in our new house, the night before was a big bbq at their house with friends and family for what I thought was for my birthday. After a lovely home made meal cooked by Tom, Tom had told me to drink up and when I next went to take a sip of my drink, I saw a huge diamond in an ice cube in my glass!
