Martyn & Jill – Our Hacienda San Jose Wedding 24th June 2017



La Cala, La Familia Beach Club, Gran VIK Hotel

Martyn and Jill

Saturday 24th June 2017

Hola Amigos,

We are very excited to share our special day with you next year and have now finalised the weekend plans…

Friday 23rd June – We would love to get together with you all the night before the wedding for a long-awaited catch up and a few drinks, so we have booked an outside area at La Familia Beach Club, La Cala between 7-10pm (early finish for us, so Martyn can get his beauty sleep before the BIG DAY). This way, you can do your own thing for dinner and come and go as you please (the Spanish culture is to eat later on, so you could always come for a drink and go for food afterwards. Close by restaurants include Olivia’s, Avanto and El Oceano). If you don’t fancy it at all and just want to chill… no worries – we will see you at the Hacienda the day after!

Saturday 24th June – WEDDING DAY!! Please arrive at the Hacienda San Jose (full address is further down this page and on your printed invite) no earlier than 3.45pm, ready for a 4.30pm ceremony. There is no official end time, so partying until the early hours will be encouraged! Dress code: Smart/ Dress to Impress!

Sunday 25th June – Chilled out BBQ and pool party back at the Hacienda from 3pm onwards (gives you a chance to sleep off the hangover!). This is optional, but a great way to blow away the cobwebs and chance to debrief. Don’t forget your bathers and towel!

We hope that you can all join us for the full weekend and would be grateful if you could message either myself or Martyn by 31st March’2017 with the following deets:

– If you will be joining us for drinks on the Friday

– If you can attend the wedding!

– If you will be sharing your hangover with us at the BBQ on the Sunday

– If you have any dietary requirements

– IMPORTANT – Your top 3 song requests for the Wedding Day

Below we have highlighted some useful links and information for around the area which hopefully helps when booking your flights, car hire and accommodation.

Please let us know if you have any questions.

Lots of Love,

Martyn and Jill
