With Love From Ibiza – Reviving romantic traditions
Ibiza is undoubtedly one of the most desirable wedding destinations in the world, with more and more couples choosing the white isle as their wedding location every year. Regular Ibiza visitors, locals and residents will also tell you the island’s landscape is rich in wild rosemary. But what have these two factors got to do with each other?
Since the middle ages, rosemary has signified love and loyalty, often dipped in gold and given as a gift to symbolise the transition for newlyweds who, when embarking on a new life, would always commemorate their friends and family. The bride would often wear a golden rosemary headpiece, while the groom and guests would be presented with golden rosemary sprigs. In this romantic spirit, new Ibiza-based company With Love From Ibiza has recaptured this spirit and beautiful tradition by creating a collection of unique, gold rosemary wedding favours.
“I love being out in nature with my daughter and after seeing so much rosemary around my home, I started researching different ancient uses for rosemary,” explains With Love From Ibiza founder Jade Gandey. “I discovered the information about its use in medieval wedding ceremonies. Of course, with Ibiza being such a popular wedding destination, all the rosemary on the island and the fact that no one else was doing this, I decided I should be the one to revive such a beautiful old tradition!”
With Love From Ibiza offers two different variations of rosemary with varying price-points for any budget. Accessibly priced rosemary seed packets dubbed ‘The Seeds of Love’ may be given to guests or gold-sprayed rosemary sprigs recreate the original ancient elegance. Each is classically packaged in a beautiful gift box with an inlay card explaining the tradition to recipients.
The tradition is not just limited to Ibiza of course, and With Love From Ibiza’s favours also serve as a great gift option for many couples who met or got engaged on the white isle and go on to have a UK or USA wedding. All sales are securely processed through Shopify via the With Love From Ibiza website.
