Bride & Groom:



Photos by:






It has always been a dream of ours to plan a wedding at an old Mexican Hacienda. Thank you to our dear friend and a talented photographer Gareth Davies that dream became a reality!

Gareth and his gorgeous bride Lily, chose an exquisite Tekik de Regil hacienda, only 30 minutes away from the center of Merida, Yucatan. It was absolutely magical venue for their event.

Hacienda Tekik de Regil is a great venue as it provides a one stop for all the events: an ancient private Catholic church for the ceremony, an old and magical “casa de maquinas” or house of machines (an old henneken production factory) served as a backdrop to the cocktail hour, an expansive garden for the reception and the grand staircase from the main house to the garden for the grand entrance of Mr. and Mrs. as husband and wife.

Guests travelled from far and away places to celebrate the union of this gorgeous couple. The groom looked sharp in his attire and the bride was just a picture of elegance in her stunning dress.

The DJ meant serious business with a set up worthy of a live concert and a professional MC kept everyone dancing all night long until the early morning. Guests kept their energy up snacking on a sweet table which was lovingly put together by the mother of the bride.

Haciendas are a wonderful option for a wedding as they allow for complete privacy, design customization and some haciendas have accommodations on site for bride and groom and the wedding party. But you don’t need to hear us say it, the photos speak for themselves!


We contracted Mango Weddings for our destination wedding in Merida in December last year. We couldn´t have had a more comprehensive and proactive wedding planner, they took a huge burden off our shoulders and had a consistent and proactive approach with us and our wedding vendors to ensure every part of our wedding day was plain sailing and no stone was left unturned. Even on the day of our wedding, we all noticed (our guests included) how endlessly Anna and Anastasia worked. I would personally recommend Mango weddings without hesitation to anyone. We can not thank you enough for your professional dedication to our wedding, and your friendly attention to us and our guests! A HUGE THANK YOU!
