Dream wedding venue in Mallorca | “Say ‘I Do’ in paradise


Following the excitement surrounding one of our flagship venues in Mallorca, given it is the location of our once-in-a-lifetime giveaway—a free wedding or vow renewal on the beautiful island of Mallorca, where we announced the winner just a few weeks ago—we’re thrilled to highlight what a wedding at this stunning rural venue could be like.

To give you a glimpse of the experience, we want to walk you through the day—from the early morning bridal preparations to the key moments of the ceremony, reception, and party. Imagine, a meticulously restored 17th-century Mallorcan manor house, with its original architectural features intact, setting the stage for a magical Mallorcan wedding celebration.

The day begins with a buzz of excitement as the bride and her bridal party gather for hair and makeup, sharing laughter and early celebratory sips. Meanwhile, the groom and his groomsmen gather for a pre-ceremony toast. Flowers are delivered, and final touches are made to the grounds outside, that soon buzz with chatter and the clinking of glasses.

Welcome – Drinks, Music and Laughter

Guests arrive and are welcomed by the groomsmen, who lead them to a refreshment area offering beer, cava, or water, meanwhile a Spanish guitarist provides background music as guests mingle. One of the team at Sunshine Weddings ensures that every final detail is in place in the ceremony and seating area, meanwhile precious moments, like the emotional first look between the bride and her father, are captured. After many months of preparation, it is finally time for the ceremony to commence.

The Ceremony – Outdoors in a Quaint Garden Area

In the warm late afternoon sun, vows are exchanged in a touching ceremony officiated by an English-speaking wedding minister who conducts a personalised and heartfelt service that is witnessed by all the wedding guests, most of whom have made a special trip from abroad to be part of the celebration.

After an emotive ceremony in the sunshine, the recessional features the newlyweds’ chosen exit song. Perhaps “Bamboleo,” strummed by a Spanish guitarist, a popular choice for many couples having a destination wedding in Spain. As the newlyweds make their exit, guests shower them with natural rose petals.

The Wedding Breakfast – Socialising and Fine Dining

The reception continues in the outdoor terrace or in a new building at the finca. This indoor space, a recent addition to the estate, preserves the rustic charm of the finca while transforming it into a year-round venue. It provides a fantastic indoor area that shields guests from the midday summer heat or any unexpected rain showers, ensuring a comfortable and enjoyable experience no matter the weather.

Cava, beer, wines, and soft drinks flow, complemented by a delightful selection of canapés, from marinated olives to octopus with smoked paprika. This moment allows guests to mingle and also provides the wedding photographer the opportunity to snap fun-filled family photos. As the evening turns to night, the call for dinner will mark the next phase of the celebration. A lavish wedding feast, prepared by Michelin-starred British chef Marc Fosh, a multi-course meal which could feature delectable dishes such as black pork ravioli and braised beef paired with local red wine.

Party Time – Dance and Celebration

The party atmosphere kicks off with the first dance, setting the tone for an unforgettable night ahead. As the dance floor opens, a local DJ and sax duo take the stage, providing hours of infectious music and entertainment that will keep the wedding party dancing until the early hours. To make the night even more special, a local nanny service could be called to ensure the little ones are entertained, allowing the adults to fully enjoy the festivities. Meanwhile, an open bar awaits with three signature cocktails, adding an extra layer of fun to the celebration.

Late-night snacks are served to keep the energy high, featuring mini hamburgers with cheese and, of course, slices of the decadent wedding cake. As the celebration continues into the early hours of the morning, private transport is arranged to ensure the safe return of all guests to their respective accommodations, allowing everyone to fully enjoy the festivities without the concern of driving.
