Rachel McFadden

Owner & Wedding Planner 

Rachel has been a true entrepreneur for the past 15 years with businesses in both the UK and Spain but with a real passion for weddings, design and event planning she dreamed of developing The Perfect Wedding Venue and set about trying to find a suitable property.  Early in 2011 this dream became a reality when she finally found the one, El Cortijo de los Caballos.  She set about a full renovation of this vast Cortijo and had it open within 4 months and fully booked within a few months.  An achievement she is very proud of!

 With so many brides wanting to marry there but having to turn them away she decided to put her mind to finding a second venue with the elusive sea view and eventually found Cortijo Pedro Jimenez, a very different property to Los Caballos but just as fabulous with the much sought after sea views.  Her venue portfolio continues to grow as she discovers other venues that fit her remit of super fabulous, stylish, romantic and exclusive.

Rachel´s wedding planning is very design led and she is more than happy to help with all aspects of your design,  assisting with colour choices, themes, flower styles and general decor, as this side of the wedding planning process is her true passion and she is constantly researching the newest trends and ideas to make sure your day is the very best it can be.

Johnny McFadden

Logistics Manager

Johnny is Rachel´s husband and her right hand man.  She freely admits that without Johnny there would be no weddings as he manages the venues (a mammoth task) ensuring they are delivered in pristine condition for your wedding day as well as managing the set up  and audio/lighting logisitics of each wedding.

He has a great team of maintenance people and is meticulous in his work and genuinely shares a love of the weddings with Rachel.  During the summer months he will usually be found on site early on your wedding day managing the main set up and during the winter months he is busy making lots of the beautiful props which are used throughout your day.

Johnny gave up his career as a successful Bond Broker to help Rachel develop the business when things were getting too much for her to handle and he hasn’t regretted it since – he vows never to return to a desk job and is enjoying working in the sun and getting his hands dirty.
