18 Years of Cardamom Events!

As Cardamom Events Ibiza enters its 18th year of existence, we spoke to the founders and CEOs Craig and Navine about life as a luxury event planner on a tiny white island.

Having seen other event companies in Ibiza come and go, Craig and Navine have truly done the distance.

Starting out as a small Indian restaurant in the sleepy Ibizan Town of Santa Eulalia, they were constantly being asked to cater events around the island. Then along with the catering came requests for flowers, decor, wedding celebrants, venues. And so the transition into event planning began.

Cut to 2020 and Cardamom have carved a reputation for themselves as being the best in the business. The absolute go-to for mid to high-level events, they are recognised globally due to their sheer professionalism and their huge network of the best suppliers and contacts Ibiza has to offer.

We asked what it is that makes Cardamom Events stand head and shoulders above the rest.

“I think it’s the way we interact with our clients that gives us the most positive of feedback. We are well-known for being polite, efficient, easy to communicate with, speedy in our responses and highly professional. We absolutely take pride in this reputation!”

So what does 2020 have in store? Well apparently Cardamom can look forward to the largest volume of events and the biggest weddings in Cardamom history this year. “Exciting and adventurous” was how Craig described his clients!

The people Cardamom are working with this year hail from all over the globe – LA, New York City, Miami and Dubai, to name but a few! Craig says “It’s always a challenge working with clients from different cultural backgrounds as you have to understand their varied takes on entertainment, food and celebrating in general.”

Saying that, Cardamom love a challenge. And this willingness to fulfil all outrageous requests has led to spectacular events complete with production sets and fairground rides! Indeed one of the highlights of last year was designing, creating and delivering a 5 day ‘Wild Things’ event for the Prince of Oman’s birthday which was beyond anyone’s wildest dreams (pun intended!)

So besides working alongside Black Coffee, The Gypsy Kings and delivering more weddings, corporate events and birthday parties (to quote Craig “2020 is the year of the 50th!”), Craig and Navine have another milestone to celebrate this year – their 20th Wedding Anniversary.

So how does a world-class event planner do that in style? We shall just have to wait and see…


Lindsay And Chris’s Spectacular Ibiza Wedding

A Stunning Cliff Top Ceremony and Stylish Outdoor Reception

“We both want to say thank you so much to the Cardamom Events Team for making our wedding day so amazing! You guys did such a good job and we are so happy you were our wedding planners!” Chris and Lindsay Blackhall

Back in June 2019, we were asked to design, create and deliver an unforgettable cliffside wedding ceremony, followed by an intimate villa reception for Chris and Lindsay.

Casa La Vista is located on top of some rugged cliffs with its own private beach. The guests were able to walk from the villa to the ceremony which was simple and accentuated by a beautiful floral arch from Flowers Ibiza.

Once all the guests had arrived, they were seated in the warm Ibiza sun before the exquisite bride walked the rustic aisle. The ceremony was conducted by officiator Melchior Arnold.

Following a poolside drinks reception at Casa La Vista with Nell Shakespeare providing some acoustic melodies, the guests were treated to a delicious feast from Crisp Catering.

After speeches and the cutting of a cake made of cheese, the party started and the group danced the night away under the stars to live music from The Topaz Movement and tunes from DJ Paul Reynolds.

“Cardamom Events are extremely organised. They covered so many bases and knew about many details that we didn’t consider or think about. They have huge amounts of experience in the industry and knew exactly what they were doing every step of the way. For sure we couldn’t have pulled this special day off without them!”

A Wild 4 Day Party Fit For A Prince

Four Days of Wild Partying for a VIP Birthday

Here at Cardamom Events Ibiza, we just love it when people come to us with crazy ideas for parties which we can help bring to life.

One such recent occasion was the birthday party of someone quite regal from the Middle East (that’s all we can say!)

His plan was to throw a Wild Things Party at Can Tigre – get the connection?

Of course, we were more than happy to oblige.

The event spanned a total of 4 days.

On Day 1, airport transfers for all VIP International guests were arranged. Cardamom also organised all the logistics & security throughout the celebrations.

The guests were then taken to their accommodation at luxury villas surrounding the main party house.

At each villa we had placed bespoke Welcome Bags for the guests inside which were details of the surprise itinerary, hangover kits and various treats fit for a prince!

Every day for the duration of the celebrations, we laid on a sumptuous breakfast at each of the villas.

On Day 2, we hosted a stunning welcome dinner at Sunset Ashram in Cala Conte with the sea and sunset as a backdrop.

Back at the villas, beauty services, as well as vitamin drips, were provided for tired guests which added a nice little extra touch.

The next day, the group took off on a fleet of motor boats for some good old fashioned sea fun followed by a Mediterranean feast at Es Moli de Sal in Formentera. They were then whisked back to the client’s villa for the main  birthday party event – a fittingly wild themed dinner by the pool and dancing into the night.

On the final day, we threw a hangover paella pool party to continue the celebrations before guests were individually transferred to the airport for return flights.

An elegant celebration oozing style, with just the right amount of Ibiza hedonism thrown in for good measure!

Thuy & Min’s Spectacular Ibiza Wedding

A Stunning beachside wedding at La Escollera in Es Cavallet

With the Mediterranean as a backdrop and the sand as the aisle, Thuy and Min got married at the gorgeous beach restaurant La Escollera earlier this year.

The rites were performed beside an elegant flower arch designed and created by Ramo De Flores.

After an emotional ceremony, the guests enjoyed canapés and drinks before sitting down to a glorious wedding feast. The kids were entertained by the brilliant Kids In Ibiza group, leaving the adults to relax and socialise.

Later on, beneath a carpet of skies in the balmy Ibiza air, the group danced the night away to DJ Juri Meniccuchi.

A truly unforgettable day…

Five Reasons To Get Married In Ibiza

Five Reasons To Get Married In Ibiza

When it comes to getting married, the number of decisions that are required can send your head in to a spin!

And one of those big decisions is where to tie the knot. Where to begin!?

Location is so important as it has to not only be the destination that dreams are made of, but has to also be convenient to you and your guests.

So here’s our list of five reasons you should pick Ibiza as the spot of choice for your special day…

  1. The weather! Let’s face it, the weather in Ibiza is fabulous. Boasting an average of 300 days of sunshine a year, you can pretty much hope for a lovely sunny day. And if not, there are always fantastic contingencies for a spot of rain, but that never dampens our spirits.



2. The views! Whether it be a white-washed hilltop church, a secluded villa tucked away in the campo, or a cliff top alfresco affair, you can guarantee that the landscapes will be breathtaking. Ibiza is an island of beautiful beaches, crystal clear gin-blue waters and stunning pine forests with venues nestled away from prying eyes. It offers an endless wealth of options for spectacular venues which will be etched on yours and your guests memories forever…



3. The food! The Mediterranean is bursting at the seams with fresh, delicious produce, which can be incorporated into your menu. The number of suppliers on the island is endless, and we only work with the best, so whether it’s a gourmet five-course experience or a traditional paella that you are after, the island provides an abundance.



4. The music! Ibiza is, of course, known for the way that music is intertwined in everything. From the solo guitarist playing your song as you walk down the isle, to the party DJ playing Ibiza classics well into the night as you and your guests dance beneath the balmy Ibiza skies, you can be sure that the music at your wedding will be perfect for you.



5. The magic! This goes without saying. The White Isle casts a spell over anyone who visits and it is hard to put into words the enchantment that you feel as the sun goes down, as the sky fills with stars and as you celebrate your union in this unique place. It gives us goosebumps just talking about it!


Cardamom Events Ibiza have over 15 years of experience and our network of connections on the island will make for the smoothest of preparations and delivery of your perfect day, exactly how you want it.

A September Dream Ibiza Wedding


A September Dream Ibiza Wedding


Some people consider September to be amongst the best times of the year to get married in Ibiza.

Less tourists, beautiful balmy weather and a temperate sea.

And here at Cardamom, we are pretty sure that Hannah and Mark would agree as they tied the knot at the simply stunning Atzaro Agroturismo last week.

The bride and groom woke up to glorious sunshine and prepared themselves for the main event surrounded by their closest friends and family.

Hannah’s brother Frazer took on the duties of celebrant and there wasn’t a dry eye in the house during the enchanting al fresco ceremony which took place in the beautiful Atzaro gardens.

As the guests and newly weds made their way towards the reception, they were greeted by a solo saxophonist and delicious canapés.

Following a divine dinner and some brilliantly delivered speeches, the couple cut the cake and danced the night away underneath the stars…

Ibiza Wedding Food Inspiration

Ibiza Wedding Food Inspiration!

Food glorious food! Such an important part of every wedding, including those in Ibiza.

So how does one go about choosing the kind of cuisine to serve to guests? And should there be canapés? A sit down dinner or a BBQ? So confusing!

Well Cardamom Events Ibiza are here to help…

Some things to consider:


How many people are attending the dinner? Will it be better to cater for them casually or formally? Intimate sit down, or bohemian BBQ? What would suit your wedding style for that amount of guests?


The wedding venue is a good place to start. Do you want to dine alfresco? Is it at a villa where you can set up tables around the pool? What is going to make the dinner most impactful both visually and for creating everlasting memories?


Local food? Something upmarket? Casual dining? This could dictate the kind of food that you serve. For example, if you wanted to go fully Ibicenco, a paella can provide a great piece for theatre and conversation and can be served to the table. Alternatively, a gourmet three course dinner served by waiters is also spectacular.

Finally, you have got to remember that the day is about celebrating you, and no matter what you serve up, it’s not worth getting overly stressed about. That’s what we are here for!

Cardamom Events Ibiza have almost two decades of experience and have a solid network of the best caterers on the island, so leave the details to us, and you can concentrate on enjoying your day!


Wedding Inspiration – The Floral Arch


Here at Cardamom Events, we see many wedding trends come and go.

One of the current wedding must-haves that is being asked for a lot is the floral arch – and we can see why!

Most Ibiza weddings are wonderfully al fresco which means that you don’t have the usual decor options that you would have if you were indoors.

This allows us to get mega-creative and, of course, makes us come up with unique ways to compliment the already striking vistas and landscapes of the White isle.

This is where the floral arch comes in!

Floral arches are free-standing so can be placed anywhere, creating a perfect frame for bride and groom. Flowers and colours can be matched to themes so they can be as understated or as bold and bright as you so wish!

We always work with the best suppliers and partners on the island, so we can guarantee you the highest quality of finish.

So when you’re planning your wedding, why not talk to us about a floral arch! We can discuss all the options with you to ensure that everything is just perfect.

Floral Arches! They’re here to stay…



Behind The Scenes At A Cardamom Event

Cardamom Events work with the best in the business and we pride ourselves at being able to multi-task and manage all these different assets.

And all the time keeping you, our valuable client, in the loop and happy with the fact that your vision will become a reality!
