We went to Malta to meet Mark from Dream Days, who took us to a number of different locations and we fell in love with the first one we saw – Razzet L’abjad Farmhouse and Vineyard. Sixteen months and 400 emails between us and Dream Days later, we were ready to get married there.


The big day…


We arrived in Malta a week before the big day to make sure all the final preparations were in place and to enjoy the island. Seventy-five guests joined us, with many of them treating it as a holiday and staying in Malta for a week or two. There was a great


choice of accommodation on offer and our guests stayed in villas and hotels close to St Julians Bay. On the day itself, the delivery of the flowers, along with the hair and beauty and make-up all added to the excitement of the day before Shane and his best man, his brother Aiden, left for the venue around 3pm and I followed in a Jaguar about 45 minutes later. All of our guests waited at the poolside on the terrace of the farmhouse and we were married at Razzet L’abjad in a wonderful civil ceremony underneath the vines in a traditional Maltese villa with a vineyard. Following the ceremony, drinks and canapés in the gardens of the venue, we


enjoyed a lavish buffet with a choice of slow- roasted leg of pork with cider and sage gravy, pan-fried fillets of sea bass on a sauteed cheery tomato and germolata dressing or chicken supreme with asparagus & leek in sherry cream sauce.


Some interesting traditions from Sweden were introduced to the wedding, including the tinkling of spoons in the wine glasses by the guests, which signals to the bride and groom to kiss!


Our amazing day ended with us dancing underneath the vines until 2am, when we left our guests to start our honeymoon in Malta, Rome and Sorrento. ❤
