Helen and Henry made the decision to get married in Ibiza very soon after getting engaged. “We had spent many incredible holidays on the island and couldn’t think of anywhere more exciting to celebrate our marriage with our friends and family,” says Helen, citing sunsets, music and the laidback, fun lifestyle as their favourite elements of the island.
Born and bred Ibiza wedding photographer Gypsy Westwood was enlisted to capture the occasion on camera. Her unique knowledge and understanding of the island’s landscape and light, in addition to her romantic reportage style, made her the perfect photographer for the event, which took place within the beautiful surrounds of Agroturismo Atzaró in May, 2015.
“After viewing many venues it was obvious that Atzaró was the perfect choice for us,” says Helen. “We loved planning our wedding in Ibiza and worked with a fantastic group of people to ensure our wedding was the best day of our lives.” Helen’s dream team included Atzaró’s in-house event planner Katia, stylist Danielle Hodgson of Velvet Circus and the professional hair and make-up team from Smack Ibiza, with DJ Brian Beezwax and musical duo Oh La La on entertainment duties.
After few dubious days of bad weather, the sun finally rose on the wedding day, where guests enjoyed the luxurious Agroturismo Atzaró cuisine in a truly spectacular setting. The wedding culminated in an Ibiza style party that went from midnight until 4am, complete with quirky fancy dress antics. The following day, Helen and Henry invited their guests to join them at Cala Tarida for a post-wedding party. “The sun was shining and everyone spent the day drinking cocktails, listening to laidback tunes and watching the sun set – it was one of the highlights of our weekend.”
Keeping the Balearic vibes flowing, the newlyweds island-hopped to Formentera for their honeymoon, before hotfooting it back to Ibiza in time for the Ushuaia Ibiza opening party and another week of relaxation in the beautiful bohemian north of the island.
“We always loved Ibiza but it will now hold an even more special place in our hearts for giving us the wedding weekend of our dreams. We can’t wait to return in 2016!”
