This is a bit of a long as we are not sure where to start with our appreciation for everyone involved in making our wedding fit for a queen never mind a bride, so I will go in order!

Firstly, myself and my bridesmaids had our hair done at Head To Toe, and they couldn’t have done anymore for us, it was absolutely perfect and I honestly felt amazing, then the wonderful Michelle worked her magic and did myself and my mother’s make up, perfect does not even come close, it was completely breath taking and we had so many compliments!

Next is Andrew, Andrew arrived at my hotel suite to take some pictures of my immediate family, you wouldn’t have even known he was there, he walked in to a calm atmosphere and just did his thing, he was so lovely and extremely professional and was a joy to have around whilst we were all getting ready, we had a mixture of laughs during our photographs as well as taking sentimental pictures, I cannot recommend him enough! We cannot wait to see our pictures! Even at Rebate, he organised everyone without anyone even realising they were being organised and it all went so smoothly, I hope he had as much fun doing our pictures and we did with him taking them.

Arriving at Rebate and Reverend Eddie,
Myself and my dad arrived at Rebate and Hazel, Sarah and Andrew were waiting for us, Hazel gave me my absolutely gorgeous bouquet of flowers which alone almost had me in tears because I couldn’t imagine them to be as perfect as they were! We then headed up to the chapel (unfortunately 4 glasses of Cava at the hotel made me need to go toilet before I entered the chapel haha).

Reverend Eddie’s service was beautiful, he even mentioned my husband’s father who passed away 8 years ago which meant the world to Aran because it made him feel as if there was a piece of his dad with us, he had everyone laughing as well as a few tears, anyone getting married at Rebate would be so lucky to have Eddie conduct their service as he went above and beyond anything you could imagine, he didn’t just feel like a reverend, he felt like a guest because he was so personal through out the entire service.

Everyone was raving about the canapes and they went down an absolute treat!

Everything was down to the finest detail, perfect does not even come close, tables were amazing, flowers were breathtaking and everything felt like a dream, when you imagine how you would want your wedding day, you can’t imagine how Rebate can make you feel down to the smallest details.

When we left the Chapel the amazing Mariachi band came up the stairs, it was even better as no-one was expecting it! They were such a fantastic Spanish touch and we highly recommend them to anyone!

The sit down meal we had, well, I am lost for words, 5 starters, 1 main and the desert, it was all gorgeous!!! Everyone needed a break after the meal before the dancing started because everyone was in a food coma, I was still full the next day.

The waiters, I don’t know where to start with the waiters, they are part of such an amazing team and Rebate are so lucky to have such amazing people working with them to complete an already amazing day, they could not do anymore for us, we never had an empty glass and they even took the time out to come over and ask if we were enjoying ourselves, they were not there just to do a job, they were there to make sure everyone was OK and enjoying yourselves, anything they did was never enough to them, they were always trying to do better, and as we told them, it couldn’t get any better! (We even made them pose for a picture so they are also part of our memory) you are all so blessed to have such an amazing team around you.

The Flamenco Dancers!! They were a huge hit with everyone! They had everyone dancing and involved, what an amazing two people they are! Again, we would definitely recommend, we cannot wait to visit rebate for a meal and see them all over again!

Lastly, Damien, you are an amazing person! Everyone knew every song you played the entire night, I danced for 3 hours straight, I didn’t sit down once between the meal finishing and us leaving Rebate, but for that reason, I hold you responsible for my feet feeling like they were bleeding the next day haha.

All future brides, my god, I’m so jealous you all have it yet to come, you all picked a venue where dreams are fulfilled, enjoy and embrace every second and take as many pictures as possible to have memories of every single last detail (we already have hundreds and that doesn’t even include any that Andrew has taken!) We are already planning on renewing our vows in 10 years time! 🙂

So once again, Dawne, Hazel, Sarah, Andrew, Damien and all the waiters, coach and wedding car drivers, cake maker (I could go on forever) THANK YOU SO MUCH!!! you are all angels and we hold a special place in our hearts for every single one of you!
