Cake Project Ibiza & Barcelona- Lauren De Vries
Cardamom Events would like to introduce Lauren, a 25 year old pastry chef from Amsterdam.
After graduating from her bachelor in Marketing and Communication, she moved to London to do a patisserie course at Le Cordon Bleu.
Back in Amsterdam she started her first company: Life of Pie Amsterdam.
In a small conservatory on the canals the company and her love for baking grew. Developing her baking, assembling and decorating skills, more orders started to roll in.
Up to a point that Lauren could no longer handle it on her own. Together with a great team they worked around the clock to turn each and every cake into a masterpiece.
Now, three years later Lauren has started a new adventure. Flying back and forth between Barcelona (where she currently lives) and Ibiza (her favourite place on earth), she bake cakes for several events.
Not only does she do birthdays, she can make you a wicked wedding cake, babyshower cake or any other event you might possibly need a cake for (or any other sweet for that matter)!
Pick your flavour, pick your style and Lauren will do her absolute best to turn your wishes into a piece of edible art.
Let us know if you would like Lauren to style your special cake…
Cardamom Events Entertainment Feature: Urban Soul Orchestra (UK)
Here at Cardamom Events Ibiza, we are big fans of the Urban Soul Orchestra (USO) – a contemporary and versatile string ensemble with a unique twist, incorporating percussion, bass, DJ & vocals. By enriching a classic string set-up with soulful arrangements and funky rhythms, they create a fresh modern sound. USO’s elegant musicians are comprised of celebrated professional musicians, vocalists and DJs of international acclaim.
USO provide various styles of entertainment offering the complete soundtrack to any corporate or private event, from chilled background music during drinks or dinner, to a roof-raising full band to stir up the dance floor. The band can be adapted for all parts of the show in just one booking.
USO has worked for 25 years at the top of the UK music industry, collaborating with an impressive range of artists including Groove Armada, Mick Jagger, Annie Lennox, Take That, Keane, The Script, Grace Jones, Octave One, Ella Erye, and Jess Glynn. Working at this level, USO brings an added height of professionalism, musicianship and style. We recommend USO if you have a desire for something truly unique.
Every summer USO perform a series of Classic Ibiza concerts across the UK in association with Ministry Of Sound. The orchestra plays a collection of classic Ibiza anthems arranged for a 32 piece Orchestra with live DJ and internationally renowned vocalists at some of the most beautiful stately homes in the UK. Last year USO released their debut Classic Ibiza album. To stream or download the Album click here.

Anna Wild, Hair & Beauty Artist & Jeremy Christopher, Photographer
The partnership of Anna Wild and Jeremy Christopher joined together through their mutual love of their creative worlds.
Anna originally hails from England’s north west and Jeremy from the rolling hills of Dorset, and their history with Ibiza spans over two decades.
They fell in love with the island in their teens and have been coming back ever since. They now base their life/work hubs between Ibiza and London’s East end.
Most of the year, the couple live in a gorgeous little finca in one of their favourite spots, in the countryside towards the north of the island and sometimes they live in London. They love to blend the hustle and bustle of the most creative city in the world with the serenity and magic of Ibiza.
When they’re not shooting and beautifying, Anna and Jeremy practise yoga, box and love to hike, exploring secret spots on the island – some of the most beautiful locations where they get a lot of our inspiration for shoots.
It was their love for fashion and beauty that influenced their desire to work with photography, hair and makeup. Many years of experience in those fields means they’re always up to date with current as well as classic trends, which most certainly influence their unique approach in the wedding and events industry, where they love to fuse these worlds together.
With over 10 years experience in their respective industries in London and beyond, the pair have worked with some of the world’s most highly respected brands, such as Qatar Airways, BBC, MAC Cosmetics, London Fashion Week, Sony.
Let us know if you wish to procure their services for your special event.
Cardamom Events Ibiza -Mercedes Benz Corporate Affair!
Automotive brand Mercedes-Benz brilliantly chose Ibiza as the venue for an international meeting which started in February this year and attracted more than 13,000 people to the island, including sales and post-sales personnel.
Cardamom Events Ibiza were asked to organise an intimate reception dinner for 75 of the Dutch and Belgian delegates at the glorious La Escollera Restaurant on Es Cavallet beach.
Guests were treated to canapés of shrimp tempura, crispy Californian sushi, tuna and salmon tartar spoons, Gazpacho shots and goats cheese mousse cones.
Sharing platters of Iberico ham, pimientos padron and tuna carpaccio were served as starters to everyone’s delight!
The main attraction was the hake ‘a la espalda’ with garlic and mild chilli with a chocolate marquise as the main attraction…
After enjoying their delightful meal, the delegates then danced the night away to their own playlist of country music! The restaurant even surprised one of the delegates with a birthday cake for his special day!
The evening was yet another success to add to Cardamom’s impressive corporate event portfolio!
Cardamom Events Entertainment Feature – Ibiza House Orchestra
One of the latest sensations taking the island by storm is the Ibiza House Orchestra…

Their stunning performances are perfect for giving your event the wow factor, whilst taking you and your guests on a fantasy ride to all those special moments shared on Ibiza’s dance floors.
Cardamom Events will take care of the stage, sound system and production. All you and your guests have to do is dance…
Mimi’s 3rd Birthday Party by Cardamom Events
Mimi’s 3rd birthday has become quite the way to begin the year for the Cardamom Events family. This year was no different with the design brief being that it should be non-stressful for adults and maximum fun for kids! Believe it or not, kids’ parties in Ibiza can be quite challenging as they are usually big family affairs…
The event took place at Can Xarc, a Spanish family restaurant on the beach. The menu was vegetarian, fun and healthy.
The highlights for the kids were the bouncy castle, a game of pass the parcel, some eco-friendly party bags and, of course, the cutting of the Frozen cake!
The parents were able to relax too with tapas and wine, knowing that the children were in a safe and comfortable place.
All in all a successful afternoon!

Friends of Cardamom Feature – INMEDIA Design
Here at Cardamom Events Ibiza, we are lucky enough to work with the cream of the island’s professionals. Having spent much time with Alex and Dino from INMEDIA Design over the years, their support of our business and the service they provide to our clients in terms of design and print definitely warrants a blog piece! We had a little chat with Alex, CEO and Production Director of the company.
Cardamom – What brought you to Ibiza?
Alex – Of course the love of the island and the beautiful weather! We didn’t want to work inside the tie-suit advertising business anymore. It was a typical emigration dream for the better life in Spain!
In 2006 we came to Ibiza. After a few years freelancing we realised that the professional and creative service we were offering justified setting up our own company. So, in 2009 INMEDIA design was born and has enjoyed more and more success each year since. We’ve hired professionals for each sector of the business. From coding experts to copy writer, social media and marketing specialists. Our main aim is to solve all problems in-house.
C – What is your relationship with Cardamom?
A – We are friends. We’ve supported each other wherever possible and we still do. As we have the same immigrant background, just from different countries, we share a lot of problems and dreams. We are 2 families with different histories but we would give them housing whenever needed, and I’m sure they would do too! We both started from a little business and grew it up with a hell of a lot of work, lots of sweat and hard times!
C – What do you love most about Ibiza?
A – The weather and the multi-cultural feeling. I love to hear many languages when you are in a restaurant, and the different cultures and influences from all over the world.
C – Any advice for anyone wanting to start a business here?
A – Don’t think that the island was waiting for you and your business. Better set up a business with the entire world as target-marked instead of this tiny little island.
