Get married in Marbella, Spain
Marbella and the surrounding areas of the Costa del Sol, are home to the Mediterranean sea. The breathtaking beaches and charming white villages, extraordinary cuisine, and fine wine make it a magical location for destination weddings.
Here are my top 5 reasons for getting married in Marbella:
Marbella has stunning scenery and weather all year round.
Marbella has a Mediterranean climate all year round making it the perfect place for an outdoor wedding. Whether you choose to say I do on the beach, in the gardens of a beautiful 5 star hotel or in a more traditional Spanish Cortijo, Marbella can provide plenty of amazing backdrops for your dream wedding day and stunning wedding photos.
Marbella has a wide range of wedding venues.
Depending on your budget and taste, Marbella can offer a wide variety of venues. Whether it’s a luxury resort hotel, a castle, a Spanish Cortijo, a rural mountain retreat or a stunning villa. Even the churches of Old Town Marbella are beautiful and unique, with most wedding venues looking over the Mediterranean sea.
Delicious Food & Drink in Marbella for your guests
Spain is known for it amazing food which includes the freshest seafood, locally grown sun-ripened produce, and all the traditional dishes such as paella and tapas.
Spain is also famous for its wine production and sparking cava which is preferred to champagne by some!
Couples also find when planning their wedding here in Marbella, that the cost per guest also includes a drinks package making Spain a much more cost-effective choice meaning you can splash your budget on other important elements.
Marbella is easy to reach
With frequent flights from all over the world to Spain connecting to Malaga airport, it is easily accessible.
Malaga airport is only a 30-minute drive from Marbella and at the other end of the coast, you also have Gibraltar airport also only 30 minutes drive.
Marbella's professional wedding photographers
There are plenty of wedding photographers based in Marbella and the surrounding areas. And like myself, most work all over the coast photographing weddings from Granada, Malaga, Sevilla, Sotogrande, and Cadiz. To be legal in Spain, a photographer must be registered and insured with the Spanish tax office and they should offer a contract between you and them so that in case of cancellations, etc, an agreement has been legally binding. This level of protection is very important for both the wedding couple and your photographer.
I hope this has helped you in making the difficult decision on where to hold your destination wedding. I have been living in this region of the south of Spain for almost 20 years years and have shot over 500 weddings in the region. I work with some of the best wedding planners and vendors to make your day super special, and at the best venues. I would be more than delighted to pass on this information to all my wedding couples.
So, will it be a Marbella wedding!?
