We can’t express how special the day was.

Just say thank you to Tracey, Sue and Wendy for making yesterday such an amazing day. Everything was completely as we had imagined it to be and more. We can’t express how special the day was. Everyone keeps commenting on how much they enjoyed it. It’s been lovely working with you to create our perfect day. Hopefully we can catch up next time we are over xxx

A huge thank you

Hi Sue & Chris
We just wanted to say a huge thank you for making our “special day” so memorable.
Even before we arrived in Lanzarote, we both felt extremely comfortable with all the pre wedding arrangements you had made.
From start to finish, the whole day was professionally managed.
It was also a pleasure having you both join us in our post wedding celebrations.
Once again, thank you so much !
Best Wishes

Dear Sue and Chris

You were both amazing on our wedding day and we couldn´t have asked for any more. We can´t thank you enough. Everything was perfect and it was all down to the amazing work you put into everything. You went above and beyond to make everything wonderful for us and our guests – we are so grateful.

It would be lovely to see you next time we´re over. We´ll be thinking of you on our anniversaries. Love Alana and Scott x

Everything happened like clockwork

When we began planning our wedding from Ireland we knew that we wanted somewhere sunny but couldn’t decide on a location, we looked at many and emailed wedding planners in lots of different countries. When we found Sue, we decided on Sue, and narrowed our location to the spots where she worked, and that is how we came to choose Lanzarote.

From the very first contact with Sue she answered all of our questions comprehensively, we were not left wondering what she meant. She helped us with ideas and gave us an idea of prices right from the start so that we knew what we were dealing with. This sounds very basic but many others couldn’t do this, and some wanted us to source our own venue (in foreign countries) before they would be able to help us. For every single aspect of our wedding Sue was able to source, price and organise it all. We enjoyed the planning stages and felt like we knew Sue before we ever met her. Our FaceTime chats really helped.

We met Sue at The Hesperia a few days beforehand and she put our minds at ease.

On the day itself we expected there would be a few hiccups and told ourselves we’ll just go with whatever happens but we couldn’t believe how smoothly the day went, everything happened like clockwork. Sue had a team of 3 to help her on the day and could not have done more for us. Sue came to escort us to the ceremony and radioed Wendy and Tracey who only brought the guests up from the shaded area when we were standing and ready to walk down the aisle. We watched them in their difficult job of seating all 134 of them! Every small detail that we had discussed happened as it should have. Some of the things that Sue had done for us were not even noticed until we realised in hindsight…. organising and meeting the babysitters, gathering some of our belongings left at ceremony by us etc. Nothing was too much trouble for her and no question was seen as ridiculous, even though there were a few mad ones! She understood what we wanted and she just “got” us.

She did a great job and we would recommend her to any couple looking for a wedding in the sun.

Thanks again for everything

We cannot thank Sue and her team from Rocks and Roses enough for making our day so stress free and special. From the first point of contact she has been professional and able to assist us with everything we needed. Our wedding day was everything we wanted, and more, and went so smoothly and we did not have to worry about a thing. A special thanks to our photographer Danielle Stack who was amazing and who we had so much fun with, and the Mick James band who had everyone up dancing all evening. The Hesperia was beautiful and the food was delicious. Everything from the flowers, cake, hair and make-up and decor was fab. We would recommend Rocks and Roses to any friend who wishes to get married in Lanzarote.

Sue and her team were professional, friendly and so amazing!

I was a bit apprehensive about booking our wedding abroad but after researching a few wedding companies, I decided to settle with Rocks and Roses to help organize my wedding. Me and my partner could not be more happier we chose Sue and her team. from the first email asking for information to the wedding day, Sue and her team were professional, friendly and so amazing! They never lost sight of my budget and I never felt like I was not in control. I could not be any more happier with how the wedding turned out. Sue kept my vision of a small intimate wedding and made it such an amazing and unforgettable day. Thank you so so much to Sue and all at Rocks and Roses. You truly are angels on earth and have such dedication and commitment to making sure our day went perfectly and every one that was there agreed. God Bless you and thank you once again.

You were amazing!

Dear Sue and Tracey

Just wanted to take some time to thank you both personally for everything you did for us throughout our entire wedding. You were amazing! It was 2 years in the planning and you were an absolute delight to work with. Getting married abroad could have proved difficult, however having Rocks & Roses completely took the stress out of the whole experience and made planning our wedding a breeze. Nothing was ever an issue and any last minute changes were always welcome.

Our Wedding was absolutely incredible and we could not have wished for a better day. All our friends & family cannot stop talking about our day and all say its the best wedding they have ever been to. On the day Rocks & Roses were there on hand, helping the day run smoothly from start to finish and everybody said how lovely and amazing they were. We would 100% recommend getting married in Lanzarote and using Rocks & Roses as wedding planners because they are A-M-A-Z-I-N-G. Thank you all so much for all your help and support and hope to meet up with you again in the future!!!!!!!!!!!

My husband and myself would like to say a huge thank you for the most amazing wedding day we could ever imagine.

From the moment I first emailed and spoke to Sue to meeting last May with Hayley as soon as we met with you we knew our wedding was in good hands.

And also when Tracey took over from Hayley you have been fab keeping us up to date at all times and putting up with me when I got a bit stressed ha ha.

Our day went so smoothly Sue and Wendy looking after us all day everything was fantastic the photographer, food, ceremony, how the reception areas looked, the hotel staff, Looking after our guests.

I cannot thank these ladies enough!!!

Where do I start…. Me and my other half have always loved Lanzarote so once we started to plan our wedding the number one choice for location had to be Lanzarote!!

Rocks and Roses came up at the top of my search, so I went ahead and enquired. I was in contact with a lady pretty much straight away who explained all possible options available to us. Despite the distance and not being able to meet face to face, she was incredibly helpful and was always available to contact. Everything was going smoothly and payments were needed, obviously everything taken into consideration we were a bit nervous about transferring large sums of money across to a person we had never met. However all plans were finalised.

Everything was personalised to myself and my now husband, every single detail had been taken into consideration and she assured me that everything was done as asked, unfortunately she left for maternity leave and we were assigned a new wedding planner. We were worried that there would be a mix up in the hand over however Tracey took over and done an incredible job! Everything was as passed over & Tracey made sure it all went smoothly!

Finally we arrived and had our pre-wedding meeting where we met Sue, Tracey and Chris (who were all LOVELY!!!) Everything was falling into place! We were at ease, we had met the planners, spoke over the plans and were ready for the BIG day!! The evening before the wedding we arrived at the Hesperia and greeted by Paloma (who was also lovely!!!) what an incredible hotel!!!

Finally the wedding day was here and oh my lord what a fairytale it was!!!! Tracey, Sue, Hayley, Paloma and everyone else involved done such an incredible job!!!! Words seriously cannot describe how amazing they made our day, I would love to re-live this day. I cannot thank these ladies enough!!! You do an amazing job and deserve so much recognition. Thankyou so so much!!! Would 100% recommend Rocks & Roses wedding planners to absolutely anyone!!! Jorgia X

The whole day went so smoothly

We are home a week but still on cloud nine after our wedding on the 29th December 2016. From our first meeting with Sue we knew we could relax safe in the knowledge that she would orgainse the perfect day for us. Sue always responds quickly to any questions. Any contacts that we booked through Sue provided an excellent service e.g. photographer Ronn Ballantyne, DJ Scott and Louise who babysat our 3 year old on the night of the wedding and Beth still insists is her best friend. Sue keeps a list of costings and dates when things need to be done by so there is never any confusion.

The whole day went so smoothly – she was there from the start of the day first checking on me then decorating the room and talking with the hotel. I cannot express how easy everything was for us knowing she was doing a great job sorting everything out. For us the day couldn’t have gone better.We could never have been so relaxed and enjoyed the day as much without her.
Finally I have to thank Chris who celebrated our wedding for us and was also so fantastic. All our guests commented afterwards on what a special service he did. He made an effort to get to know us so he could personalise the ceremony. So Sue and Chris thank you for your help, thank you for your patience and thank you for making our day even better than we even dreamt it would be. Love Claire and John

We are so glad that we found Rocks and Roses to make it the best day of our lives!

We had originally planned to get married here in Ireland but as we got engaged in Fuerteventura we decided to see how easy it would be to get married there.
From the moment we got in contact with Sue we knew we were making the right choice. She talked through what we were looking for and what they could offer.
Planning a wedding abroad isn’t easy but because of Rocks and Roses we were able to plan our perfect day from our home knowing it was in capable hands; there was always someone to answer any queries we had so we were never worried.

The day itself was even better than we expected – the attention to detail given by Sue and her team is second to none. We are so glad that we found Rocks and Roses to make it the best day of our lives.

So Thank you again for everything you done for us, it really was the perfect day!

Can you please pass on our thanks to Chris and the girls too ????

A massive thank you to you and your team for all your hard work in making Saturday’s wedding such a success. I really can’t remember crying with happiness for such a prolonged period before, the emotion of the day really got to Ray and I.
Thank you to Chris also for his wonderful service, his touching words really struck a chord. Thank you for including a couple of prayers too Chris they were just perfect.
If you could pass on our thanks to the drummers, they really were the talk of the wedding so pleased we managed to keep it a surprise for the guests.
I know Shirley and Chris didn’t want anyone to go hungry but I think we could have fed half of Caleta with the amount of food that was served. Wow.
Thank you again Sue for an absolutely amazing day.

You made every single moment so special, everything was so perfect. The ceremony, the layout, the meal, the set up of the room….. we couldnt fault a thing.

It was an absolute pleasure to have you as our wedding planners. We´d go back and do it all again…. it was wonderful !

Thank you all so much for making such wonderful memories for both of us.

Thank you, you made sure our day was the perfect day we had dreamed of.

From the moment we decided on booking Rocks and Roses as our wedding planners, we knew we had made the right decision. Sue has the most calming, friendly nature, and is so reassuring, anything we were worried about, she would be there with answers and help. We were lucky enough to go out to Fuerteventura a few months before our wedding day, and got to meet Sue, along with my (now) husband Danny, and my parents. It made us all feel confident and reassured that the day would be planned with the detail and precision that we couldn’t have achieved ourselves. We arrived in Fuerteventura two days before the wedding ceremony, and had organised to meet with Sue again, and also Chris, our celebrant, we are so happy we did that, because on the day as we said our vows, Chris had really listened to what Danny and I had said about each other at our meeting, it made the ceremony that extra bit special, it had a really personal touch. I can’t thank or recommend Sue and Chris enough, they are absolutely lovely people….thank you, you made sure our day was the perfect day we had dreamed of.

Thanks again, we couldn’t have asked or wanted more from that day, utterly perfect!

We have finally landed back down to planet Earth with a huge bump! I wanted to drop you an email as soon as i could to say thank you both for a wonderful wedding. It was faultless. Everyone said they had to pinch their selves the next day as the whole thing felt like a dream, and i couldn’t agree more. Every guest praised Chris’s ceremony and said it was one of the loveliest ones they have ever been to. The day flowed seamlessly and i didn’t once a single bit of pressure from the organisation. Your staff were so lovely and sweet and as i said before it was all just perfect! A number of my guests were in tears through out the live music as they were just over whelmed by the beauty of the whole experience. It really really was the dream wedding. The cake was perfect, the table decorations were absolutely gorgeous and that bougainvillea up the aisle along side my dress was just fantastic!!! Ah i could literally gush all day over every little detail! Oh and every single guest said how wonderful the cocktails, canapés and dinner was… and the wine too. That was one hell of a wedding to beat!
Anyway, i have attached a few shots taken so far and will send the rest and the film as i get it. I have also been approached by a top editor of a bridal mag who wants to do a feature on this wedding, so i’ll definitely be crediting you guys!
Thanks again, we couldn’t have asked or wanted more from that day, utterly perfect!

You made the entire process and wedding day completely stress free!

Lee and I arrived back in the UK last Thursday and I just wanted to send you a quick email to say what a wonderful job you did for us on our wedding in Los Jameos.
You made the entire process and wedding day completely stress free. It was quite funny to see only the groom and father-of-the-bride panicking!
Everything that you had organised that I hadn’t seen beforehand like the flowers, cake, food, band, ceremony and reception area was perfect.
Lee and I still had hotel guests coming up to us a week after the event to say how beautiful I looked, what a wonderful wedding it was and how it had made their holiday.
Big thanks also to Michelle for the make-up, Tina for the hair and Chris for the ceremony. Also i cannot send this email without mentioning Marianna and David from Los Jameos.
They made us feel very special even on and after the wedding day.

Our day was simply perfect, me and my husband didn’t have to worry about a thing!

We were recommended rocks and roses before we booked them by a band we knew before the wedding! We were not disappointed! We don’t live in lanzarote but have been going there for years and love it. We needed some help organising local companies like photographers etc and the legal elements.
From the moment we booked rocks and roses we had a clear point of contact and the entire process was explained including payments which were done securely. We were given a costings sheet which rocks and roses updated throughout so we could see exactly how much we were spending.
Rocks and roses recommended wonderful photographers to chose, flowers, fireworks and everything else in between. You’re imagination can truly go wild because if you want it I couldn’t imagine them not being able to get it for your big day!
We got married at the Hesperia hotel, lanzarote and they made it truly magical! Our rocks and roses team was Hayley and Wendy who were unbelievably helpful and made us feel comfortable! Both these ladies were incredible and made us feel so special, our day was simply perfect, me and my husband didn’t have to worry about a thing, they took complete control and left us to just enjoy our special day!
Our day would never have happened without Hayley and Wendy, a special thank you for you both.
In particular Hayley, she was our lead planner and made sure that everything was planned to the letter! Hayley is so welcoming and relaxed, she kept my husband and I well informed but calm because we knew she had our wedding under control! She took on the pressure so we didn’t have to! A million thank you’s Hayley!
In summary, we’d recommend rocks and roses to anyone considering! After visiting the island many time this company really do have the best reputation that we could find!
Thanks for all your support and the effort you all put into our day!

Contact Sue and her team at Rocks and Roses for what is such an important event in your life, and you’ll be glad you did!!

From the moment we contacted Sue to ask about what paperwork and legalities were necessary to get married in Lanzarote, we knew we were in good hands. As we are resident here, we had to get copies of documents apostilled and translated, register our intention to marry with the British Consulate as well as the authorities in Spain, in the correct order and we doubt whether we would have married yet if we had been left to our own devices. Sue took the stress away from us with the help of Stefanie of Clarity Consulting, so all we had to focus on was the wedding day itself.

Sue was always on hand on e-mail to answer the mountain of questions and pleas of “where can I get this” or “what do you think of that” and nothing was too much trouble. She is very experienced with functions large and small and has so many contacts to make your day what you want it to be.

For hair and make up, Emma and Caroline were so friendly and relaxed, offering advice but also listening, especially when on the day itself it was so windy we had to change the hairstyle, but Emma wasn’t fazed at all. Chris conducted the ceremony beautifully, and with good humour and personalised it for us. Ronn was on hand to take the photographs which we’re very happy with, and again, we had someone that obviously enjoys his job and wanted to do the best he could for us, listened to what we wanted and volunteered ideas of his own.

The staff at Amura were lovely, very attentive and good humoured throughout. We were very happy with the food and wine, everything was as good as we hoped it would be.

Regarding the cake, we just wanted a simple sponge and cupcakes, and that’s all the detail we gave Sue to pass onto the baker. The decoration was so beautifully done, flawless with delicate piping, and two shades of pink iced chocolate cupcakes that melted in our mouths.

Contact Sue and her team at Rocks and Roses for what is such an important event in your life, and you’ll be glad you did.

Our experience with Rocks and Roses has been simply fantastic from start to finish!

We both want to thank you from the bottom of our hearts for everything you have done over the last couple of years. You literally brought my dream of a wedding in Fuerte to life and, after a little gentle persuasion, Dan´s dream wedding too! You took every potential element of stress away from us when towards the wedding it was a very stressful for us personally. Nothing was too much trouble, I felt so supported in every decision and felt like you always had our best interests at heart! Our experience with Rocks and Roses has been simply fantastic from start to finish so thank you. You’ve been amazing.

The organization and precision on every detail was amazing

We are both so delighted to have chosen rocks and roses as our wedding planners.

From day one when I gave Sue a phone call at 9 months notice to plan a wedding in Lanzarote there was never a better decision .

Talking to sue I felt we made the right choice so genuinely welcoming and caring over the phone ,a few days later she put me in touch with Hayley and from then on the ball got rolling.. no matter what or what concern we had Hayley and rocks and roses had been there day and night at anytime at no hesitation even just for a chat .

As months went by and the day had finally come we could not have asked for more the organization and precision on every detail was amazing right down to Tena and Michelle on hair and make up.

I can still feel the amazement I had felt that day seeing all the effort and care Sue,Hayley and Wendy had put in. The Amura and its staff in Puerto Calero was also beautiful and fantastic.

To round this up in a nutshell we will both miss working with rocks and roses . You truly put heart into your work ! And you gave us our dream wedding . We have nothing but thanks for everything guys would definitely recommend

Our wedding day was better than we could have ever dreamed of!

We would like to send a huge thank you to Sue and the team at Rocks and Roses. Our wedding day was better than we could have ever dreamed of! People talk about the stress of planning a wedding – but those people have not worked with Rocks and Roses. Nothing was too much trouble and it was thanks to their hard work and attention to detail that our day went perfectly and we had the most amazing time. Knowing they were only ever an email or a Skype call away gave us great confidence and as we found out along the way, they thought of everything and always had it all in hand.

From the beautiful beach setting and luxurious hotel, the personal ceremony right through to the all important finishing touches – we can’t thank you enough!

Sent with much love,

Perfection is the best word we use to describe our Wedding Day!

Perfection is the best word we use to describe our Wedding Day at the Hesperia Hotel, Lanzarote.
This could not have been achieved if I didn’t have an amazing Husband to take it all on, but most of all to Sue and the staff at Rocks and Roses that done everything on our behalf on the island and with the hotel (Photographer, Hair, Make Up, D.J, Menus) There is not one thing we would change. Through phone calls and emails we were never without contact.
From beginning to end we were 110% if not more with all that was prepared to make our special day Magical. My aunt actually commented that she felt like she just attended a Wedding from OK magazine, couldn’t be happier.
Rocks and Roses come with our highest recommendation for a stress free wedding day to any future couples.

A magical day and one which will be remembered forever…..

When my daughter told me that she was planning to have her wedding in the Canary Isles, I was a bit concerned. The distance, the language, the local customs, the cost. She then told me that she had engaged a wedding planner and I was concerned at what the cost would be. How hard could it be to arrange a wedding and surely a wedding planner was a bit of an extravagance? As a concerned father of the bride, a lot was at stake.

How wrong could I have been!

We met up with Sue from Rocks & Roses Wedding Planners in Corralejo almost a year in advance and immediately my fears and concerns melted away. Sue and her team went to great lengths and spent the day with us to find out what was important for my daughter and son-in-law to be. They then guided us through the customs and process of having a wedding in Fuerteventura. We then visited venues and spent more time looking at the myriad of options available. Just to have someone who is fluent in Spanish and understands the locals was invaluable. By the end of the day, we were all so much more relaxed and I was able to breathe a sigh of relief. Ceremony decided, venues, reception and entertainment booked, we relaxed and enjoyed the rest of our holiday

Twelve months later, we all few out and again met with Sue and her team three days in advance of the wedding. This attention to detail, speaking to the bridal party, photographer and the venues was invaluable.

The day of the wedding! Nothing went wrong! What can I say – amazing. Rocks & Roses were on hand for the entire day seeing to our every need, from help with button holes and flowers to the delivery of the cake to the reception. Nothing was to small to deal with. The entire day went without a hitch. Sue even gave me some encouragement with one aspect of my speech. We never had to intervene with the staff, venues – Sue and her team looked after everything. It all added up to a magical day and one which will be remembered forever…….. for the right reasons. I swear Sue even had a hand in arranging the best weather possible!

Sceptic to start with, uber fan by the end! Money well spent.

As we were looking to book our wedding in Lanzarote we came across Rocks and Roses as wedding planners and what an exceptional service we got, from the emails to the end of our wedding day and after! Rocks and Roses are exceptional in everything they do, we received everything we wanted on our wedding day. I knew that if I had any problems or I wanted to ask a question i could email or ring Sue and she was there.

I know when booking a wedding abroad it can be daunting – who do you go to, what’s the service going to be like and a load more what if’s but when we met with Sue we immediately know that everything would work out.

From our experience we would 1000% recommend Rocks and Roses – not only did Sue help us find the perfect location but she was with us all the way. They are the best wedding planners anyone could have on their wedding day and myself and my new husband would like to thank them for making our special day so special and we can’t thank Sue enough for everything she did for us.

I felt safe with you

I just wanted to thank you once again for making our wedding day so perfect – in spite of the weather and especially the wind!! It was an amazing day for us, it was all we could have wished for and more. Everything was perfect, the Hotel, the food, the ceremony (special thank you to Chris). We couldn’t have done it without you, you were very professional and yet very close and personal and I felt safe with you in every aspect, because everything was in control at all times. All the best to you and the biggest thank you again.

We couldn’t have done it without you

Hi it’s Lindsey’s mum. I would also like to say thank you – you were brilliant. When I met you I felt I already knew you. We felt at ease with everything and you were there every step of the way. I never thought in a million years it would be made so easy to plan things with you, you made the wedding perfect and gave my daughter and son in law a perfect day full of happy memories and me too. Thank you, you were fantastic and we couldn’t have done it without you xx

You went above and beyond

I just wanted to say how thankful we both are for everything you did for us. You went above and beyond and gave us the most perfect day, better than we could ever have hoped for. Your services were excellent, you made us feel comfortable at all times and I can never thank you enough for that. Your wedding day is supposed to be the most beautiful day of your life and you gave us that experience. One of your wedding planners told me that they had never seen a bride as calm and that is because with you I knew we were in good hands I did not need to stress.

On a scale of 1-10, we would give 11

We both would like to say thanks from the bottom of our hearts, we really enjoyed our day very much.

Myself and my new husband Richard are ever so grateful to have found Sue and her team at rocks and roses, they are very professional and attended to our every needs, nothing too big or small, They made us feel very comfortable and took the whole pressure of wedding nerves away.

From day 1, Sue understood our wedding party needs and completely fulfilled our expectations and more, We both would have no problem at all in recommending Rocks and Roses as wedding planners as on a scale of 1-10, we would give 11,

Thanks so much to Sue and her team, you guys are amazing x

Sue the letter above is just a small token of how we both feel, thanks so much for everything you have done for us, it has been a pleasure to have you as our wedding planner,

The day went perfectly!

Just wanted to say thank you for arranging our day. Everyone is still talking about it even now! The children had a wonderful time with the entertainer. The hotel was gorgeous! You helped put everyone at ease. Even though I was naturally nervous I wasn’t stressed! The disco was fab and fireworks were a lovely surprise for the guests. The day went perfectly and was everything I imagined. I would also like to thank flowers by serenity. The flowers and decorations were amazing! And James Mitchell the photographs were beautiful and we have 80 of them in a collage in our hallway as a reminder of a perfect day!

Our amazing wedding in Lanzarote

We recently had our amazing wedding in Lanzarote and left all the planning in the hands of rocks and roses. I have to say there actually isn’t enough words to describe how amazing it all went. I was worried to leave the planning to somebody else as I’m very picky about how I want things, both had never been to Lanzarote before, but have to say there was nothing from the day I wasn’t happy with. After a bit of back and forth (which by the way Sue was completely fine with) all my mind changing, we chose a catholic ceremony and our afters in the beautiful Melia Salinas.

The Church was beautiful the ceremony was beautiful, the meal in the hotel was 5 star it was fab, the hotel treated us so well too. I have to say Rocks and Roses are a must if your having your wedding away, I was never told no, I was never messed around, every email I sent I was replied to straight away, everything I wanted they made it happen for me. My wedding day was just fantastic I was so so happy and had the most amazing day. I will always remember the day I am lucky enough to say I wouldn’t have changed a thing, it was exactly what we both wanted.

Thank you so much Rocks & Roses for making our day so perfect.

Everything was wonderful

Trying to settle back in to normal life now, back at work. Everything was wonderful I will certainly recommend yourselves to anyone that asks me about having a wedding.You were all just brilliant to deal with, you always took my calls, rang me back, replied to any queries (including dealing with my changes of mind from time to time). Sonia was brilliant going through the service initially in November and then on the day as well, we couldn’t have asked for a better ceremony service, it flowed so well with herself and the priest.You were brilliant on the morning of the wedding, you kept everything moving along, otherwise we would never have got out the door

All the best and again many thanks for everything

We truly felt safe in their hands

Since we first decided to get married on the island of Lanzarote, Rocks and Roses, guided us all the way. All of our communication was carried out through regular email contact. Sue provided us with great advice when it came to making all the choices that were involved in bringing our big day together.

We simply wish to express our deepest thanks for making our day one that we will never forget. We had a Roman Catholic Ceremony, and throughout the day, there were several members of the Rock’s and Roses team coordinating events at the Church and Reception venue, which meant that our day ran smoothly and we truly felt safe in their hands. We would not hesitate to recommend Rocks and Roses, thank you

Yours thankfully,

The Mullens

Our day could not have been more perfect for us

We can’t thank Rocks and Roses enough for making our wedding run so smoothly on the day. Every detail we wanted was catered for and our day could not have been more perfect for us.

Everyone is still raving about how well the day went. From the service, to the flowers, to the hotel, everything was just perfect. We’d have no hesitation recommending Rocks and Roses to any Bride & Groom to be organising their wedding.

Thanks a million!

Absolutely brilliant day

We asked for an informal wedding and that’s exactly what we got we had an absolutely brilliant day in a stunning location and wouldn’t have changed a thing. Some of the guests have said it was the best wedding they have ever been too. From the very first email nothing was a bother and the girls were always efficent in repling. I would definitely recommend them. Thanks so much Shauna and Paul. x

Rocks & Roses are a fantastic team

Rocks & Roses are a fantastic team who dealt with us efficiently and in a friendly manner. From the first email nearly 15 months before the wedding right up to the wedding and since coming home you have all answered every email and question – nothing was too small or too silly to answer. We had a wonderfully intimate wedding and reception at the wonderful Casona de Yaiza, the setting there was perfect and the food delicious.

The photographer, James, and Videographer, Mark, both put us at ease and the photo’s are superb and we expect the same of the dvd when we receive it. We couldn’t have imagined a more perfect day and if we were to do it all again we wouldn’t change a thing.

Happy to have chosen Rocks and Roses

I am so so happy that we decided to choose Rocks and Roses for our wedding planners, I can honestly say that our wedding day was so relaxing and stress-free. Antonio De La Rosa and his crew were AMAZING. Max was a great DJ, and a really nice guy too, he stuck around for a while and we had a good chat. The venue was everything we could have ever dreamed of, I can’t tell you how perfect it was. As you know, Toni was very emotional on the day as he felt the same as I did, it was amazing. You really did pull everything together for us so that the day was so much fun and we didn’t worry about a thing

As perfect as possible

Many thanks for all your hard work in making our Wedding go as perfect as possible. We really couldn’t have asked for better people to help us plan our special day together. We chose the beautiful church “Los Delores” in Tinajo for our ceremony and the magnificent Restaurant Amura in Puerto Calero. The food was superb and the staff were extremely friendly, and all our guests had a wonderful day. Dawn and Sally recommended everything else to us and they never steered us wrong.

I would personally recommend Miguel in Puerto Del Carmen for hair and Charlie the fantastic make-up artist. We also had the excellent band, The Rocker fellas which really got the party started and Max the DJ for afterwards, who was also brilliant and made sure he included great music so that all of our guests enjoyed themselves.

I would also highly recommend James the photographer who’s work in astounding and also made us feel very relaxed and also Mark the Videographer who was wonderful at capturing our special day. All of these were recommended by Rocks and Roses and they really could not have chosen better. All in all, we had the most memorable and fantastic day of our lives and the icing on the cake is that our guests felt the exact same way….

I can’t believe how relaxed we were

Thank you so much for all of your work in making the most perfect wedding day! We wanted a very relaxed wedding which was simple but elegant and we got all of this and more! I can’t believe how relaxed we both were on the day and I put this down to not having to worry about a single thing.

The church in Tias was a perfect setting to start the day. We can’t recommend the Amura enough as wedding venues go. I think we were blessed to find such a gem. (thanks for finding it for us!!) With its delicious food, idylic setting, professional service and relaxed atmosphere we couldn’t have asked for anything more!

We would recommend Rocks and Roses to anyone who wants the responsibility (and the stress!) of organising their own wedding taken away. They were professional in everything they did and really made things very easy for us. Thank you also to Mark and James for DVD and photos which captured the special moments throughout the day in such a relaxed & humorous manner.

Simple and intimate

Our wedding, in Lanzarote, organised by Sally and Sonia was perfect. The church was lovely and the reception afterwards excellent. We would recommend Rocks and Roses to anyone who wants the responsibility (and the stress!) of organising their own wedding taken away. We asked for an intimate wedding which was simple but tasteful with good food and wine. We got all of this and had a fantastic day. Thank you also to Mark and James for DVD and photos which captured our treasured memories so beautifully

The best day possible

Although a lot of the organisation of our wedding took place via email and telephone calls, we felt confident that the Rocks and Roses team handled our requests and we never felt anxious about any aspect of our special day.

Out of this world

We returned home from a wonderful holiday in Lanzarote which was made even more memorable with the renewal of vows that was arranged as a surprise for my wife, she was totally stunned by it and I have to say your choice of venue was out of this world. We had a lovely evening after you both had left and indeed ended up getting back to our apartment very late as we found it hard to leave such a lovely setting. We will always be able to look back at our special day.
