This summer has seen the event hire division of Cardamom Events flourish beyond our expectations.
For those of you who don’t know, Cardamom Event Hire Ibiza has a huge selection of the finest in crockery, cutlery, glassware, event furniture, decor, catering equipment and any other event accessory you can think of, at our unique one-stop-shop.
Earlier this summer, the lovely Claudia Van Ketwich Verschuur from Dutch agency Equilibre Events, asked us to decorate a family style birthday of one of her clients in their Santa Gertrudis villa with catering from The Chef Ibiza, entertainment from Paco Fernandez and floral perfection from Flowers Ibiza (Ramo de Flores).
For us here at Cardamom, we love to collaborate and bring our years of experience to the table. Having spent so many years dealing with event demands of every type, we really have thought of everything, and for anything more, we have the contacts and accessibility to make just about anything possible.
You can check out our Event Hire website right HERE or contact us directly to chat with us about how we can help you realise your dream event.
So much goes on behind the scenes of Ibiza wedding planning. One of the most important aspects of a wedding is the food, of course.

The Ibiza wedding and event industry continues to grow year upon year. The island offers so many unique and spectacular venues and experiences, so it makes sense that clients from far and wide want to celebrate special occasions in this Balearic paradise.
But what does that look like behind the scenes? How does an independent event company keep up with the changes and developments that they are constantly faced with?
We spoke to the man in the know, the guy who is at the forefront of every single Cardamom interaction
CEO Craig Colligan
With regards to private events, we organised multi day celebrations for Irish and Indian clients in some of Ibiza’s best event venues, hotels and restaurants such as 6 Senses, Lio, Destino, Chiringuito Blue, Cotton Beach & Roto, as well as excursions to Formentera with a fantastic range of speed boats and sailing ships.
Then, the many wedding clients came from far and wide creating colourful weddings from Saudi Arabia, Ireland, South Africa, UK, Russia, Switzerland & Dubai with such wide ranging cultures keeping us on our wedding planning toes.
Over the 20 years that Cardamom has been running, we have adapted to the ever changing playing field of Ibiza. From the early days, our foundation was always heavily immersed in food and beverages and event catering which was where my initial passion lay as a chef.
Then, as Ibiza opened up to the world, these clients needed so much more help with their event management, so Cardamom Events was born and as the level and detail of events grew, so did Cardamom, in order to reach the increasing requirements of the international clients.
Now events are multiple days, multiple venues and expectations are higher than ever and we love the challenge of bigger and better celebrations.
Besides the exciting weddings we have, we will continue to promote our equipment hire company and provide more gorgeous event furniture to our private and corporate clients.
A glamorous 3 day event held in 3 equally glamorous venues.
Luxury, style, intimacy, beauty and lots of love…

Jacky Croad launched her record label Ibiza Chilled in the middle of the 2020 pandemic, from Santa Gertrudis, heart of the island. Taking to the recording studio, Jacky crafted a stunning debut, producing an authentic Balearic long player soundtrack. Volume 2 followed in 2021 and 1.5 million platform streams later, her music is regarded as the very essence of the infamous beautiful Ibiza experience, sunset vibes on a soul journey.
Jacky and her family are established and contribute to the real Ibizan community, having followed their dreams by moving to the island back in 2010. It was then she launched her first business, Ibiza Pilates with her private studio and Pilates expertise. She is now a renowned little black book contact for regular A-list clientele living and visiting Ibiza all year round.
We had a chat with Jacky about her businesses and her connection with Cardamom Events

Covid 19 has caused the postponement of many events, which is an event of Force Majeure. This is very frustrating for all but we will work with all of our clients to rearrange events. We will honour our contracts for all events and will apply any deposits paid against a rearranged date. Should clients cancel their events then unfortunately deposits will be forfeit in accordance with our Terms and Conditions.
