“Welcome to our wedding website. We hope you will find the information useful. We are really excited about our big day and we hope you can share it with us.

Wednesday 15th July – OUR BIG DAY
Ross is planning on playing golf in the morning so any of the boys are welcome to join him.
Thursday – we will be chilling and recovering as “Mr and Mrs” at the villa so please come and join us if you can.
Friday – please join us for dinner at a pre arranged restaurant (details to follow).
Saturday – home time for us.
Details of our wedding day
Ceremony at San Antonio church in Frigiliana 4pm- please arrive by 3.45pm (depending on where our guests are staying we will arrange a mini bus with pick up points and times, details to follow).
After the ceremony there will be money behind the bar at the tapas restaurant in the square to get yourselves a drink whilst photos are being taken.
The buses will then collect guests whilst the bride and groom finish getting photos taken and take you all back to the villa. The villa is called La Roca Rara and is where the meal and reception will take place. The website is www.larocarara.com and here is a map from the website of where it’s located.
Due to the incline up to the villa the largest vehicle that can get up is a 16 seater bus. The 2x 16 seater buses will collect the first group of guests at the pick up point at 6pm sharp (the best men will keep you right).
It will drop guests off at the villa then come back for the next group.
Canapes will be served at the villa at 6.30pm and dinner will be after speeches so around 8.15pm so maybe best to have a late lunch!?
Once we know where all our guests are staying we can provide details of transport home.
We are keen for the men and boys to wear kilts to show off our tradition…without the jackets as we are hoping for sun. Of course this is a personal choice.
As for the girls, there is up to a 10 minute walk on cobbles to the church from the drop off and collection point so bear this in mind when choosing your footwear or bring a bag big enough for a sneaky wee pair of flip flops to change into (hopefully they will come in useful later on the dance floor)
Please get in touch with us if you have any questions or suggestions.
Lots of love
Ashley and Ross
