Dear friends and family,
Welcome to our wedding webpage! We hope you find all the information below useful in planning your time with us on this very special occasion. As you are aware the location of our wedding is the beautiful town of Estepona, Spain.
I’m sure most of you have never visited Estepona before so we have created this website to provide some information we felt may be useful.
We are both really excited about our big day and we hope you can be there to celebrate with us!
Lots of love,
Chris & Helen

Monday 23rd July – Pre wedding Get Together
We are arranging a little party so all our guests can meet and get to know each other if they haven’t done so already. This will be held at a lovely restaurant in Estepona. As a thank you for our guests, food and some drinks will be provided so we will need to know if you are able to make it. Please make sure to fill in this info on the invite RSVP. (Venue and time to be confirmed at a later date.)

Note to Guests:
In regards to dress, please take into account that it will still be very warm early evening and that the ceremony will be taking place outdoors.

Fuerte Hotel Estepona
We have chosen this beautiful beach-side hotel for the duration of our stay and we would be delighted to have as many guests as possible to stay with us! The hotel has a Friends Club, which offers a 5% discount to those who wish to book their rooms here. It is free of charge to join but the Friends Club discount is only offered to those who book direct with the hotel. More information on their Friends club can be found on their website.
Hotel Fuerte Estepona is a luxurious 4-Star hotel and apartments by the beach, which is about 20-25 minutes drive to Tikitano Restaurant. Set on the beachfront on the Costa del Sol, Hotel Fuerte Estepona offers 4 outdoor pools, a spa and free WiFi throughout. The centre of Estepona is 5 minutes by car.
The stylish, modern rooms and suites are spacious and air-conditioned. They feature a balcony, and satellite TV. All rooms have tea and coffee-making facilities and some have a terrace with a hot tub.
The Fuerte Estepona Hotel has a bar and a stylish restaurant. Outside, there is a sun terrace and gardens. The spa has a sauna, an outdoor hot tub and offers a range of beauty treatments. Other hotel facilities include Balinese beds, tennis, paddle and volleyball courts. The hotel’s Forti Club organizes a range of activities for children.
For more information on the Hotel’s Amigos Club, there is a tab at the top of their webpage that either says Friends Club or Club Amigos.
Note to Guests:
We chose Hotel Fuerte Estepona for its quiet location. It is situated on the outskirts of Estepona, so for those who wish to stay at this hotel please be aware that the town centre is not within walking distance and you will need a car/taxi to get around.
On the wedding day we will be hiring a coach, which will transport all guests from Fuerte Estepona Hotel to the wedding venue. The coach will also bring back guests to the’hotel later in the evening. (Time to be confirmed at a later date.)
Other Hotels in the area:
For those who wish to stay closer to the town centre and the beach, there are a number of hotels to choose from.
…. just to name a few and many more which you can check out on websites such as tripadvisor, hotels.com and booking.com. Please be mindful that hotels in Estepona can get booked up very quickly especially the ones in the town centre. So we recommend booking as soon as possible just to make sure you get the hotels and deals that you want!
To give you an idea of what Estepona and the Costa Del Sol area is like, things to do, places to see (so you can plan your stay a bit better!), we have included some websites you can check out.
After the ceremony and reception, you can party with us for however long you want and can leave at whatever time you wish. A coach will take guests back to Hotel Fuerte Estepona at a certain time in the evening. Those who want to leave earlier or later than the coach will need taxi services. Below are a couple of useful links for taxis and tariffs in Estepona.
