Toni is the wedding and events planner at our Sirenis Seaview Country Club hotel. He has been with Sirenis Hotels & Resorts since April 1996, the year the Sirenis Seaview Country Club was inaugurated, working as a PR, Guest Service and Animation Manager for 4 seasons, and he is now also the coordinator of the Sirenis Friends Loyalty Club. 

Toni is a person who loves his job and likes to capture all the emotion and romanticism of the bride and groom on their wedding day.

Let's learn a little more about Toni and his weddings at the Sirenis Seaview Country Club.

Hi Toni, we want our clients to get to know you a little bit better, which is why we'd like to ask you some questions.

How would you describe what weddings are like at the Sirenis Seaview Country Club?
They're weddings with a noticeably Mediterranean character, white, fresh, with the smell of pine, juniper and the essence of salt and the sea.

When did you organise your first wedding?
It was my sister's wedding now more than 20 years ago, and before that there was a co-worker who had asked me to make her floral arrangements to use in the church of San José, and then other friends and family members came after them, but always doing it as a hobby. 

What's the most important thing when you start to organise a wedding?
Really getting to know the bridge and groom, and if it's in person through an interview, even better, as that's how you can really customise the event for them.

When did your passion for organising weddings begin?
I would say it was more a passion for organising things, events, different activities and projects. Even so, I can say that weddings have fascinated me ever since I organised my first one and entered this world of excitement. 

What training did you have for organising and planning weddings?
You never stop learning, every day, each wedding is a unique event that you learn from, but my initial training was acquired in an intense course on International Protocol, Events Management and Wedding Planning.

Tell us an anecdote about a wedding you've planned
I've still never had a wedding be cancelled per the decision of one of the parties, which has happened to many other wedding planners, but one thing that happened to me, at a very recent wedding, was that we almost ran out of floral decorations for the ceremony due to my own mistake (I didn't order them), but thanks to the great professional we work with for our celebrations, it only ended up being about two hours of nerves, and we finally got all the flowers for the ceremony as planned. 
A muddy rain also recently made us suffer quite a bit, since it left us without clean chair covers since we changed them twice, but in the end it all turned out well. 

What inspires you when organising a wedding?
Always the bride and groom's preferences, although I must say that Ibiza itself is a great source of inspiration, the Mediterranean colours look great in our celebrations, usually the whites, blues and greens with the gold of the sun make our weddings on the island truly special. 

What do you like most about your job?
The direct relationship with clients, getting involved and being part of what will undoubtedly be one of - if not the most - important day for them, their family and their friends, being there with them and participating directly is very rewarding. 

What's the most important part of a wedding?
For me, without a doubt, the connection between the officiant and the couple if we're talking about the ceremony, and if we're talking about the event itself, then definitely the communication between the couple and the wedding planner who will organise the event from start to finish, looking after every last detail, and trying to surprise them with unexpected things. The ability to react to unforeseen events is very important for a good end result. 

What relationship do you have with the couples who have gotten married with you?
Always cordial, they usually leave us with a photo to keep in our office, and there is some direct communication via WhatsApp or email messenger.
