Creating Amazing Memories
Hello we are Helen and Juan a husband and wife team & founders of Licandro Weddings.
We took our backgrounds in professional event planning and photography and combined our skills and passions to create our company.
We are bilingual, both being fluent in Spanish and English and live on the beautiful island of Tenerife, the largest of the Canary Islands. Actually being based on the island full time we have formed incredible relationships with all local venues and providers, meaning we can provide you with the best advice, products and prices here in Tenerife.
We are fully registered and know & comply with all of the laws and requirements here in Tenerife and can guide you through every step of planning your special day here in the Canary Islands.
Having our own wedding here on the island we understand the emotions involved in planning such an important day. We know that planning a wedding or event can seem overwhelming especially when hosting it in another country, but we are here to guide you through every step of the process.
We have a passion for what we do and really care about every single person that entrusts us with their special day. We form close bonds with each of our clients and really care about your special day as if it were our own.
Looking after countless weddings and events has been a dream for us. We have worked tirelessly to build the reputation that we have and pride ourselves on the professionalism, attention to detail and love that we have poured into every occasion that we have planned or managed.
We take great pride in our work and ensure every single one of our events, no matter the size is planned with precision, guaranteeing our clients the day they have always longed for.
So come say hi, we can't wait to meet you! xx
Helen: Wedding & Event Planner
Originally from London, I've always had a passion for organising and planning.
Before moving to Tenerife I founded my own entertainment company supplying dancers, models, musicians and speciality acts for world renowned companies such as, Peugeot, Cannon, MAC, Alton Towers, Selfridges, and Levi's and for esteemed events including Cannes Film festival.
My entertainment company was my gateway into the wedding industry, where I began supplying bespoke entertainment for weddings, luxury events and children’s parties across London and the UK.
This organically lead me to organising events full time, covering every detail from venue finding, entertainment, decoration design and on the day management.
I joined forces with my professional photographer husband Juan in 2018, when we decided to work together full time.
We both saw a gap in the market for amazing weddings at attainable prices and we wanted to offer people the stunning venues and products that are available locally, to show them that the day they never thought possible, could become a reality.
With this philosophy in mind we founded Licandro Weddings and have since gained valuable connections with industry leading vendors here in Tenerife and further afield.
I believe that every special event deserves to be stunning, no matter it's size.
I'm flexible and accommodating to each of my client's needs and preferences and I'll work day and night to guarantee your event will be unforgettable, stress free and everything you dreamed of and more!
Juan: Wedding & Event Photographer
Originally from Uruguay, my passion for photography first started when I moved to Spain. This is where I became involved with surf lifestyle and nature and trying to capture the magic of it on film. This is still and will always be a big passion of mine.
However when I later moved to London I turned my focus towards fashion photography and worked in this industry for five years, photographing for international modelling agencies including BAME, PRM, and BMA specializing in model's portfolio work, head shots and commercial photography.
Initially as a hobby I started to pick up an interest for couple's photography and soon realised that this is where my heart truly lies.
Moving back to Canary Islands I joined forces with my wife and decided to focus one hundred percent on this side of my work. We founded Licandro weddings and I have the wonderful privileged of working in an industry that I love.
I feel very lucky that I am entrusted to capture special moments between loved ones on some of the most important days of their lives.
I always endeavour to get to know my clients before your big day to understand your vision and most importantly get a sense of how you interact as a couple before I photograph you.
This means you can feel relaxed, enjoy your party and leave me to capture all the special details and emotions of your event.
