I am Esther. Originally from Germany, I live between Frankfurt and Barcelona with my Spanish husband and our two kids. And I live, eat and breathe weddings.

Ever since my own Mediterranean wedding, I spend my days searching the Internet for all things belle and chic, for new trends, gorgeous images and creative wedding ideas. I love photography, a nicely set table and have a thing for beautiful paper. I am not a good cook, but make delicious cakes and desserts.

After successfully blogging and free-lance writing in the Spanish wedding world, I decided that I needed to broaden my focus and provide a source of inspiration in English for all Mediterranean brides, especially the ones that coming over for a destination wedding.

I find the Mediterranean lifestyle incredibly stimulating, and I think Southern Europe has amazing opportunities. So with Belle & Chic, it is my goal to showcase our best artists, vendors, and venues… in short, the most stylish Mediterranean weddings.

I hope you find this blog inspiring and a helpful tool in planning your wedding. If you have any questions, suggestions, or just want to say hi, send me an email, I’d be delighted to hear from you!
