Vogue's bookings editor Rosie Vogel, 33, married Matthew Eades, 39, at La Iglesia de Sant Bernat in Forna, Spain, followed by a reception at El Rubiol on 30 August 2014. She says:

"My family has had a holiday home in Forna since the '70s, and it's a very special place, full of happy memories. I always knew I wanted to get married in the lovely village church.

We stumbled upon the reception venue, El Rubiol, purely by chance while out for a walk one day. It's such a beautiful hidden spot, just minutes from the church.

The church service was a blessing from the priest - we officially married back in London at Richmond Register Office. The priest spoke no English, so a family friend translated.

The village is up in the mountains, in the orange groves. This location set the tone for the whole wedding, from the food and my dress, to the designs on the invitations.

Our colour palette was a mix of greens, oranges and whites. For our floral displays, we used hydrangeas, roses and lots of rosemary, which grows wild around the village.

Matthew is a huge fan of James Bond, so we named our tables after 007 novels, using the original cover artwork as table names.

A white vintage convertible VW Beetle was our chariot of choice for a post-ceremony drive around the village. Our friends decorated it with old tin cans and navy pompoms.

The food was in line with village tradition, and locally sourced. We started with tomato, watermelon and chilli gazpacho, followed by sirloin steak with roasted seasonal vegetables.

My top tip: Give yourself one or two tasks each week to avoid a blind panic in the final month."
