When a bridal couple decides to tie the knot in southern Spain, that’s just the first step! The Costa del Sol offers such a multitude of diverse and luxurious venues – from hotels to fincas, haciendas to villas, cortijos to beaches… and that’s really only scratching the surface!
Not to mention their nearest and dearest…
Well, that’s where Sunshine Weddings excels, and is proud to offer its expertise. We’ve arranged close to 1000 weddings all across this part of Spain – as well as the magical island of Mallorca. And it was our great pleasure to put all of the touches, great and small, into place for Lucy and Phillip, a wonderful couple whose marriage we helped to plan last summer.
After considering a number of wedding venues, our bride and groom opted for a stylish and swish Marbella beach club, part of a five star hotel complex, with an enviable front-line beach setting that oozes wow factor and glamour. This also enabled their guests to stay with them, on-site, either side of Lucy and Phillip’s special day, making for some wonderful memories for everyone who flew out to Spain for the celebration. In fact, the hotel is equipped with over 100 modern guest rooms, so there’s plenty of space for close family and friends. And, of course, for members of the bridal party who would like to stay centrally in Marbella, there are a plethora of top hotels, all within easy reach too.
What sets this beach-side location apart from some of the other beach wedding venues on the southern coast, is its gorgeous ceremony area, which is actually raised above the beach, thus ensuring complete privacy for the whole bridal party, and intimate wedding day moments for the happy couple… all whilst being able to soak up the incredible views of Marbella’s sparkling golden and turquoise coastline.
And all without sandy toes – or canapes!
Typically, after the ceremony, guests will enjoy pre-dinner drinks as some of the Costa del Sol’s top musicians serenade them amidst a backdrop of lush green, and gently swaying palms… and the bride and groom will nip off to have their pictures taken beside the glorious jetty; the Mediterranean sea twinkling invitingly behind them.
Indeed, the ceremony area also offers ample shade from the Spanish sun, and can be decorated for any wedding theme. For couples who would prefer their ceremony in a church though, the closest is just ten minutes away by car… and then back to the beach club for some sumptuous cuisine, cake, and the all-important speeches!
As if all of this wasn’t spectacular enough, the bride and groom’s family and friends then make their way to a breathtakingly beautiful outdoor dining area where a delicious wedding breakfast is served pool-side in a luxurious space accommodating up to 250 guests.
This wonderful beach wedding venue really does have it all, for it also offers a party room, where celebrations can continue until the small hours, and those who want to finish the evening off in true Spanish style, can do just that.
Marbella is such an idyllic destination wedding venue, and one of Sunshine Weddings’ most popular locations to arrange a dream wedding ceremony, and all that goes with it. The Marbella beach club is no exception to any of that. For couples who are seeking sumptuous sophistication that effortlessly retains simplicity and charm, this venue truly does tick all the boxes – and more.
It’s also perfectly positioned on this lovely stretch of coastline, sitting between Malaga and Gibraltar airports, offering easy access for everybody.
We would like to extend a BIG thank you to Isabel Benetricht for the exquisite wedding photography featured in today’s article.
