Monnaber Estate Soller
Monnaber Estate in Soller Majorca saw the wedding of Lauren and Laurence in this beautiful venue in the Tramuntana Mountains around Soller on Saturday lunchtime.
Arriving early on Saturday I was greeted by an excited Groom and his groomsmen who were eagerly waiting to offer their services to set up the wedding! I soon put them to work putting the tables and chairs up.
Once they were all ready we put the table cloths on and set to setting them up – lots of volunteers to help. The talented and gorgeous Russell had done all the hard work making and coordinating the centre pieces.
With the Ceremony all set up it wasn’t long before the guests began to arrive to a refreshing glass of Cava to start the celebrations off ! The lovely Shirley, (the celebrant) soon arrived to perform the ceremony. The Groom was really relaxed and so excited – lovely to see. The groomsmen and the groom looked very stylish and very handsome in their jacket less suites. I made a visit to the Bride – who was relaxed and looking incredible in her beautiful off white dress which enhanced her amazing figure, her loosely put up hair by Tommy the local hairdresser in the Port. This being Majorca one of the taxis was late with an important guest – grandma ! We held back with the ceremony for this important guest to arrive.
Checking the weather !
Sangria awaited the New Bride and Groom and Guests after the ceremony and unfortunately the rain, which didn’t dampen anyone’s spirits at all ! Canapés were served to accomplice the sangria. We let the rain pass by then did a quick turn around with the tables, wet cloths removed replaced with dry ones. The sun came out in the beautiful blue sky making the surrounding mountains glow in beautiful colour.
The sun shone brightly over everyone, as they tucked into a tasty buffet made by the father of the Groom, The speeches were all greatly received !
The cake was cut whilst the band was setting up. Lots of dancing and drinking went on into the evening as the day finished with much merriment, dancing and laughter ! A fabulous day -Congratulations Lauren and Laurence.
