It is no secret that everything ‘Spain’ is a favourite topic of Junilo and mine! Our years in Spain shaped us as people and continues to be an important part of our experience as a couple and as individuals. Nevertheless, our first trip back after moving home to Canada was an exciting one! We felt as if our hearts could burst from the thought of going ‘home’, spending time with our Spanish ‘familia’, eating as much Spanish food as we could and drinking perhaps one too many of the original cortado, lol!
Meri La Casamentera is an incredible wedding planning duo, made up of Maria and Matixa. Their love for life, dedication to their work, Spanish flare and on point styling makes them one of Spain’s most desired Wedding Planner teams. Their weddings are EPIC ‘experiences’; unforgettable memories for both couples and guests alike. It was such an honour to work with them and an amazing team for this intimate wedding on the Northern Coast of Spain.
In recent years, San Sebastian has become THE Northern capital of gastronomy, fashion, surfing, beaches and landscape. It is little wonder then that many international couples from all over the world make it their wedding destination. A little outside the city lies the hidden Hotel Iturregi, a small boutique hotel which combines the charm of a rural house with the comfort and sophistication of a luxury hotel. It sits high on a hill, surrounded by vineyards and breathtaking views of the Cantabrian coastline, making it a quintessential wedding venue and accommodation for couples and their guests.
The bride and groom have spent the last nine years together; true teenage sweethearts. It isn’t hard to see why Ibai was completely smitten at the first sight; Ane’s piercing green eyes, beautiful smile and incredibly sweet personality makes her just about perfect :)
We cannot wait till the next time we are back at Hotel Iturregi. We couldn’t think of a better Spanish wedding venue for couples celebrating the most important day of their lives with their closest family and friends. xoxo
