About Us
Lisa & Michelle

We have been planning and styling weddings together in Marbella, Spain for the last few years even though both of us are originally from the UK. In fact, we lived less than 20 miles from each other but never met until we moved to Marbella! During this time we’ve had some of the funniest, most amazing, most terrifying experiences along the way all in the name of LOVE and weddings. We keep saying that one day we’ll write a book.

It was in the middle of the Covid-19 craziness, while we were working so much more online with our Marbella wedding couples, that we realized with our knowledge and skills we could help so many couples all around the world to plan a wedding, not just in Marbella. And the idea just snowballed.

FACT
Lisa’s parents are Spanish but Lisa was born and brought up in the UK so she’s bilingual in Spanish and English. A client once described her as ‘an English person in a Spanish person’s body’. Very handy for couples having a destination wedding in a Spanish speaking country as well as English.

Michelle has a knack of putting some of the wildest ideas together and making them work. But not only work, look amazing. She once combined Harry Potter, Game of Thrones and dogs (yes dogs, as the couple were obsessed with them) into stunning wedding decorations. She has the photos to prove it, so please feel free to contact her to see the evidence.
