Hello Family and Friends,

We are really happy you are considering being part of our big day! Here we wanted to give you some details about our wedding.

Living in Australia for 4 years, we loved the sun and outdoors. What better way to spend one of the happiest days of our life than on a beach in Spain. We are sure you will love the sunshine, delicious tapas and seafood and the relaxing atmosphere of Nerja.

We will be updating this website so check back for more info.
