Sophia & Matt

 

Hi everyone

As you know our history is not perhaps the most conventional one An American girl with roots in El Salvador finding love with a British boy with roots in Belgium, over a plate of steaming dumplings in Beijing, then moving to Germany, and now on to London Along these various journeys individually and together, we have amassed a great network of people from all corners of the world. So we thought what better way to celebrate our union than to bring them all together in a warm and lively place to spend some time all together We really hope that you are able to join us for our special day on 29th May, and hopefully for some of the week leading up to it from the 24th May. We will stay in the villa until the 31st – we will be organising a pre wedding BBQ for all who can come and a hangover curing brunch on the 30th, as well as the main event on 29th afternoon (times to be confirmed)

We have found a wonderful location for the venue about an hour away from Malaga airport. Nestled in the mountains it is secluded and stunningly beautiful, minutes drive from the ancient walled town of Casares, and a short drive from the beach. It’s an amazing villa called Villa Bermeja and you can see details and lots of photos on the website www.villabermeja.com

Villa Bermeja Casares

Another good website for cheap and reliable car hire is www.malagacars.com‘We used them when we were in Spain and found them very reasonably priced.

Gibraltar – Transfers

If you are flying into Gibraltar the transfer company we would recommend you use would be Calypso Travel.

The smallest minibus they have is a 22 seater and by law there needs to be a minimum of 8 passengers on the minibus so this would only really be ideal if there were a number of you all travelling on the same flight.

A transfer from Gibraltar Airport to the venue would be 100 per mini bus.
