A Dazzling Summer Al Fresco Ibiza Wedding

 

 

 

 

A Dazzling Summer Al Fresco Ibiza Wedding

Last summer, under the Ibizan sun and blue sky, Kate and Rob tied the knot at the simply gorgeous Ca Na Xica Hotel and Spa. This charming finca is situated in the north of the island amongst orchards of fruit and olive trees and following a traditional ceremony at the local church, the couple arrived back at the venue in a sublimely cool vintage VW Camper van from Moonshine Ibiza.

Refreshing cocktails and champagne were served poolside along with a mouthwatering array of canapes, before the couple and their guests adjourned to the outdoor dining area for a sunset feast.

After the speeches and exquisite culinary indulgence, the happy group danced the night away beneath the Ibiza stars.

A most perfect mid-summer celebration!

El Ramo de Flores for the flowers

An Exceptional 40th Birthday Celebration Ibiza Style

An Exceptional 40th Birthday Celebration Ibiza Style!

For his 40th, Javier chose the delightful Aubergine restaurant to celebrate with an intimate gathering of family and friends back in June.

As the guests arrived they were treated to glasses of champagne and delectable canapés of Strawberry Gazpacho, Arabic Bread with Barbecued Halloumi and a Honey and Thyme dressing, crispy Gambas and croquettes and a freshly cut jamon station, as a traditional Spanish guitarist played in the background.

As the sun began to set, the guests were led to the outdoor dining area where they enjoyed a stunning meal of Carpaccio of Scallops and Black Cous Cous with Red Shrimp.

Following the toasts and cake cutting, the party went on well into the early hours with a DJ and saxophonist. It truly was a night to remember…

Huawei 3 Day Phone Launch 2018

Charming The Influencers – Ibiza Style!

Earlier this year, Cardamom Events Ibiza were tasked with creating and delivering a unique and glamorous corporate event for communications giants Huawei.

64 influencers from across Europe had been invited to an incentive group to check out a brand new product. Of course, we jumped at this opportunity to show them the best our island has to offer…

We accommodated all the guests at the stunning new 7 Pines Resort where we also set up a photo and embellishment workshop.

The group was then transported for a breathtaking dinner at one of Ibiza’s finest sunset spots Hostal la Torre.

The next day, an elegant sail boat took them on a trip to neighbouring Fomentera before they dined and danced beneath the stars at Destino.

It certainly was a corporate event unlike any other, and one that Huawei’s clients will NEVER forget!

A Stunning Surprise Marriage Proposal…

A Stunning Surprise Marriage Proposal…

Picture the scene – your long term partner invites you down a secret path to a secluded beach. When you arrive, you spot photos on a table of friends and family holding up cards spelling out “Say Yes!”

Then as the sun sets, your partner gets down on one knee and presents you with a custom made ring, as a beautiful guitar player serenades you before you sit down to a private romantic dinner under a cliff-side pagoda.

This is exactly what happened when Jorge proposed to Brandon! With some very special assistance from Cardamom Events Ibiza…

We are here to make any occasion unique and spectacular. You wish is our command! We aim to make timeless precious memories with everything we do…

Cardamom Events LOVES No.1 Rosemary Water

Cardamom Events LOVES No.1 Rosemary Water

 

In Acciaroli in Italy, more than one in 10 residents live longer than their hundredth birthdays. They do so while enjoying a lifestyle that many would consider unhealthy: they drink, they smoke, and they indulge their every pleasure. So, what’s their secret?

According to several scientists, the key variable may be fresh rosemary – a ‘super’ herb with a number of longevity and health boosting properties.

The town’s story fascinated David Spencer-Percival – an experienced former CEO of two multimillion pound recruitment companies – and his wife Bonita. So much so, in fact, that they visited the town together and saw this lively, vibrant community of healthy centenarians for themselves. Inspired by the town and its fun-loving, long-living residents, they launched No1 Rosemary Water – the world’s first pure rosemary extract drink.

Cardamom Events are thrilled to be able to offer No.1 Rosemary Water for any of their events, whether it be in welcome cocktails designed especially for the occasion, bottles as a refreshing alternative to soft drinks, or shot bottles with breakfast the following day. From personalized bottle tags, to having the branded van on display for pop-ups, both ourselves and the No1 RW team just love to get creative!

Why not stay ahead of the crowd with Cardamom Events and No.1 Rosemary Water?!

Yana’s Lavish 40th Birthday Celebrations in Ibiza

Earlier this summer, Cardamom Events Ibiza were asked to create, design and deliver the most grand of birthday celebrations for some extremely glamorous clients.

The brief for the party, held at the spectacular Villa Glory, was that it had to be colourful, and it had to incorporate the best DJs we could find!

Not a problem…

Canapes were delivered whilst the intimate number of just 15 guests were entertained by dancers in an oversized champagne glass from Krystal Shows.

A beautiful alfresco formal dinner was prepared by The Chef Ibiza with flowers from Ramo De Flores.

Post-dinner the cake was cut and the guests were treated to a fire show. Then the party really started with DJs playing through to sunrise and beyond…

Indian Sikh Wedding Meets Ibiza Chic

 

Indian Sikh Wedding Meets Ibiza Chic

Cardamom Events founder and director Navine Colligan was recently asked to create, design and execute the perfect Sikh wedding for her niece. The only catch being it had to be here in Ibiza!

Navine said “It’s very hard and a lot of pressure organising Indian weddings in the UK and India now as Indians normally have a guest list of 500 people on average. So destination weddings have become extremely  popular and Ibiza is an amazing backdrop for these amazing colourful events.

Being a Punjabi Sikh myself, I love all elements of these weddings and can put my heart and soul into the ceremonial aspects that are the strength of our Indian culture.”
The venue was a must as Reena (Navine’s niece) had always been to Ibiza over the years and fell in love with her great times there so Atzaro was the chosen venue.
From a Ladies Sangeet, to a Mehndi party night and a Sikh matrimonial ceremony, non stop Bhangra beats and folk dancing from early morning till early hours – this 3 day event was mind-blowing!
Sikh ceremonies are near impossible to do outside a temple, so this was a real test of Cardamom’s capabilities! But of course, Craig and Navine love a challenge and with this whole event being so important to them, they felt that it demonstrated some real strengths of how they can achieve the unique and traditional!
