Your beach wedding in Spain

Why would you choose to have your wedding in Spain?

  • In southern Spain good weather is almost guaranteed
  • A wedding in Spain can be more economical
  • There are stunning photographic opportunities
  • A beach wedding is so romantic
  • You can combine your wedding with your honeymoon - or you can have a holiday, a wedding -  and then a honeymoon!  :)

Of course, saying this, I am presuming that you do not already live in Spain - although if this is the case, you might still be looking for help - particularly with a hairstylist and make-up artist perhaps.

Perhaps you have been to Spain on holiday and are now considering the Spanish costas as possible wedding destinations.  But which particular coast line?

These are the coasts I recommend:

  • Costa Blanca (fly into Alicante)
  • Costa Cálida (fly into Murcia)
  • Costa Almería (fly into Almería)

The Costa Blanca (white coast)?

The Costa Blanca is a long stretch of coastline - around 200 kms.   The northern part differs quite considerably to the southern part and the city of Alicante separates the two.

In the north you will find the well-known resort of Benidorm, as well as towns such as  Dénia, Moraira, Altea, Javea and Calpe. 

South of Alicante the landscape is flatter and popular beach areas include Torrevieja, La Zenia, Cabo Roig and Pilar de la Horadada.

The Costa Cálida (warm coast)?

The Costa Cálida is in the province of Murcia and extends from the border of the province of Alicante, down to the city of  Aguilas,  bordering on the province of Almería.

At the northern end of this coastline you will find the Mar Menor,  Europe's largest salt water lagoon. It is separated from the Mediterranean sea by a piece of land called La Manga, made most famous by La Manga Club Resort.

Cartagena and Mazarrón are two other important coastal towns on this coastline, while the city of Murcia  is situated inland.

Or will it be the Costa de Almería for your wedding in Spain?

This part of the coast is in Andalucía, stretching from the beaches of Pulpí and Vera down through Mojácar and Carboneras to Roquetas and Almerimar.

I live in Mojácar because this part of the coast appeals to my family the most.  It is quite rustic, with less high rise than the other costas.  There are many lovely beaches and even at the height of the tourist season, they are not crowded, which makes them ideal for a wedding ceremony.

Indeed there are many lovely  locations for a destination wedding along these coasts and if you don't have a specific venue in mind, why not let me make some suggestions?

All three airports are convenient for couples from the U.K., Ireland and other parts of Europe,  with only a 2 – 3 hour flight and many budget airlines to choose from.

I can send venue details for your consideration and then accompany you to see the ones you prefer.  Once you have decided where you would like the wedding to take place, I can liaise with the venue for you and begin helping you with all the other arrangements, such as makeup advice, flowers and so on.

Whether you want a small, intimate, wedding in Spain or perhaps a renewal of vows  -  or a big, lavish, ceremony and party
