My big fat Greek wedding?
Don’t think so try a bit of this and get yourself to Tenerife…………
wedding ceremony abroad
I think, it´s an unknown fact that a wedding in paradise can exist without travelling for days on end and without incurring a huge hole in ones pocket!
Ever been invited to a wedding knowing that you could only dream about attending? Sadly you decline because of cost, distance and time. Recently I received a wedding invitation to attend a wedding blessing in Tenerife.
The initial wedding ceremony took place at the local registry office. Sound plain and simple? The best was yet to come! Bags packed and ready, the mini bus waiting, off to the airport and on our way to sunny Tenerife. Leaving behind the freezing cold, drizzling drab weather.
warm and friendly welcome at the hotel
We checked into the most quaint resort, part of the The Ritz Resorts group, situated in Amarilla Golf in the South of Tenerife. People say you can´t change a first impression, here, you really wouldn´t want to. We were greeted with a warm and friendly welcome and an efficiency second to none by the Tenerife hosts and the wedding planner at this charming Canarian resort.
All the wedding party had been accommodated on site, 50 in total. The wedding accommodation in Tenerife was surprisingly cheap and yet consisted of self catering apartments, the standard of which was incredible. The resort staff in Tenerife can´t do enough for you and cater for your every need. Totally uninterrupted paradise.
The Ritz Resort hosts with their invaluable advice and experience had arranged and carried out every wish, instruction and minor wedding detail as instructed by the bride and groom.
The wedding ceremony
The local Priest in Tenerife, is of Irish origin, so no language barriers. He carried out the wedding ceremony by the pool and the whole ambiance was that of a fairytale wedding. The bridesmaids with their fresh flower bouquets. Soft music that floated on the Atlantic breeze, tall palm trees swaying gently and in the not too far distance, the Atlantic Ocean. There is something so special about this wedding abroad.
What a sight for sore eyes! Canarian potatoes, platters filled with mixtures of roast meats and poultry, whole suckling pigs, poached salmons and a huge king prawn fountain. All being washed down with fine Spanish wines and champagne. The wedding cake seemed to stand in its own kingdom almost as though you were expected to pay homage to it! 8 tiers in all, it swirled around like steps leading up to a turret in a castle, sheer decadence. Made at the local Tenerife bakery, another small detail taken care of by the Tenerife wedding planner with a huge, “knock on effect”.
To get married in Tenerife is a lifetime experience
When someone or something touches you, and it has an everlasting effect on you, you have to let people know, spread the word. My advise is, if you ever get the chance to attend a wedding at this Ritz Resort in Tenerife, or certainly, if you are thinking of getting married abroad, having a ceremony of a wedding blessing, or renewal of your wedding vows abroad, don´t hesitate to get in contact with these proffessional wedding advisors who truelly are helpful and friendly people who make your wedding dreams a reality, cater for all your wedding needs and will ensure that you will have that truelly unforgetable once in a lifetime experience.
