Andalusia is a place in Spain full of tradition, culture and places full of character. The Tabernas Desert is located in the south of Spain. As the only desert in Europe, it became famous when hundreds of Westerns were filmed there in the ’50s + ’60s. And you’ll quickly see the draw about this place! Quite possibly the perfect setting for a vibrant desert elopement.
First, Bodas de Cuento Styling + Design wants to vindicate how special elopements are. Trending now more than ever! Second, the photos from this desert elopement are meant to show bold + colorful inspiration. This year’s vibrant colors represent the joy of celebrating love again.
A historic spot nearby called Molino Fernan Pérez, is the perfect setting to tell this colorful story. Certainly a vibe for two rebellious lovers who need no excuse other than their love to escape + seal their vows privately. Lara Onac is sure to capture every colorful detail in the desert!
Colorful Styling with Spanish-Meets-Western
Just a taste of this desert elopement with bold colors + typography! We love this stationery suite by Better With Co.
As much as we love a buttoned up black + white suit, we’re very into this groom in Zara! Western meets Spanish feels.
For bridal makeup, they’re serving up maximalism! The cat eye + floating eyeliner draws inspiration from the ’70s. You know we love the ’70s. Angie Rodriguez make up with the retro look.
Giddy up for all the western vibes from this bridal dress by Laura Escribano!
Desert Elopement with Vibrant Colors
Notably, colorful hues + vibrancy were at the forefront of this floral styling! Savia Bruta creates this atmosphere full of bright, bold colorful florals. Unusual and risky palettes are so fun…and always end up totally working! In this case, fresh flowers with dry plant elements from the area (palm tree, pita …) create rad contrast. Ultimately, this ceremony framing with Moroccan carpets speaks volumes!
Despite the desert elopement setting, eclectic maxi-style takes over here! Full of contrasts and textures of different fabrics all with local handicrafts, vintage candles + vivd colors.
Vibrant Candles + Textured Decor
Above all, we’re firm believers that there’s magic in the desert! This desert elopement inspo shows the versatility of the proclamation of love. It should be any which way you imagine it! Of course, colorful styling + in the desert just might be your spot 🙂
There’s all kinds of romance happening in Spain. Just like at this cozy elopement in in Calderona Natural Park.
