Helena + Antonio

A Spanish Wedding with a Touch of Rock n’ Roll

Helena and Antonio used old vinyl records to design their invitations; the original covers were then hung on the day of their wedding, and the corresponding musics were played… What a great idea! Helena wore green wedding shoes and her fantastic dress was designed by herself and a bridesmaid. The overall idea of this wedding was simple, to have fun & one hell of a party! I wasn’t there, but from the beautiful pictures that document that day, I’d say mission accomplished! Photography by Megan Spelman of Bikini Birdie.

The wedding took place on June 8, 2013, at Antonio’s parents’ house, in Alicante, Spain.
We decided to have a handmade wedding because didn’t like traditional. We wanted to run away from the typical wedding things. We made all the decoration, but we didn’t want to be the only protagonists so we involved everybody in everything! A lot of friends helped us in the preparations. We also invited everybody to take part in the dance and we had a flash mob. A friend of mine made with me my bridal dress; what a amazing experience!
Our invitations consisted of a mini record (like a single), and we put a personalized cover and sticks. Nobody actually knew what her record was before the wedding (only few of our guests had a record player). At the wedding, we hung all the original covers on a wall with a question: “What is your record?”. And we put a record player to listen to all of them.

Name one thing you regret…

There wasn’t any regret. We can´t believe how perfect that day was. We aren’t wedding lovers and we thought about the wedding as a beautiful party… Being together for 14 years already, getting married didn’t look that important to us. But then, everybody showed us so much love… we are very grateful for that. And so that day, we were so in love also!… it really was an amazing day.

… And one thing you’re really happy about/ proud of.

We think the decoration was very beautiful and was made all for us :-). Actually, all the organization was done us and we are very proud of that. Everybody say to us how amazing they think the wedding was!
