Geysa & Jose’s Laberinto de Horta Elopement: Interview with our Bride
Geysa and Jose were such a fun and down to earth couple. And they came to us with a clear wedding vision. What they wanted was a unique location where they could profess their commitment to each other, then take some amazing pictures and end up having an intimate dinner at an elegant and unique place. They were stylish, elegant and unique as a couple and their intimate ceremony and reception absolutely had to reflect that. The Laberinto de Horta or Labyrinth Park of Horta was the ideal place. Our Barcelona Brides team member Gaby also provided a sweet and personal elopement ceremony. Our other assistant Julia provided the stunning bouquet and buttonhole which was just what the bride wanted: stylish, clean and elegant. Photography by And I Love You So. Stunning yet unique hair and make up was provided by Anechka. The vintage Seat car was the ideal ride for them to see the whole of Barcelona and then finish off their photo tour at the authentic Los Caracoles restaurant where they enjoyed a semi private space and live music.
Jose proposed at a beautiful national park in front of monuments. So we knew they wanted some special and what better than a magical little secret like Laberinto de Horta. Full of beautiful, Italian-inspired terraces, statues of Greek gods (including that of Eros, Greek God of Love) and pavillons, the Laberinto de Horta is also the oldest garden and hedge maze in Barcelona. The maze and it’s tall manicured hedge walls create over 2,000 feet of twists and turns for visitors to get lost in. What better place to profess their love for one another?
We loved planning this special Laberinto de Horta celebration for an amazing couple and are thrilled to bring you an interview with out beloved bride Geysa.
