Sunshine Weddings’ portfolio of luxurious destination wedding venues on the Costa del Sol and Mallorca continues to grow and enthrall, and today’s featured frontline beach wedding villa in Marbella is no exception to that. With its absolutely stunning surroundings and spacious ten bedrooms, it’s little wonder that Simon Cowell stayed here during the filming of The X Factor!
Truly, this villa packs a punch.
But it’s not only high-profile celebrities who get the opportunity to revel in this exquisite property’s features. This summer one of our very own bridal couples celebrated their lavish wedding day at the fabulous venue. And what better way to start married life?
So what makes this villa so sought-after?
Quite simply, it offers the whole package for the ultimate fairy-tale wedding.
First off, its enviable frontline beach setting makes for the most romantic and idyllic backdrop for a couple’s special day. And yet, the villa is also only ten minutes from the centre of Marbella by car, so that our brides, grooms and their families, are never far away from the upmarket resort’s restaurants, bars, culture, events, and amazing shopping opportunities. This is also a huge plus when it comes to accommodation for larger-style weddings. There are twelve superb hotels located within the same short drive from the villa, making for swift and easy transportation to and from the celebrations. And, of course, space abounds for family and friends to stay in the villa itself with the happy couple, turning the special day of their nearest and dearest into an unforgettable mini-break.
There are many wow factor assets that come with the property, as this clutch of beautiful photos highlights. But one of the most breathtaking aspects of this exquisite villa has to be the way it reveals its secrets in style. On arrival, guests are stunned by the magnificence of the front exterior of the venue, which oozes luxury and sophistication. Typically, family and friends will then gather inside the villa at this point, enjoying refreshing welcome drinks and perhaps some live Spanish guitar music… all without the realisation of the beauty that is about to unfold.
Once the bride is ready for the ceremony, the curtains are literally thrown open to dazzle everyone with the panoramic view of the abundantly lush green gardens, teeming with bright colour pops of cascading fuchsia bougainvillea. It really is quite a sight to behold, further encompassing the aquamarine of the pool; the magic of the Mediterranean Sea just behind it – a floral ceremony archway framed this perfectly for our featured couples’ wedding day – the golden beach, and the cerulean expanse of cloudless sky.
But then the bride makes her entrance and the scene becomes something even more ethereal; the gorgeous white fabric of her dress contrasting brilliantly with the opulent natural surroundings.
There are settings for weddings… and there is the Beach Wedding Villa Marbella setting!
After the ceremony, guests can return to the front of the house for an hour or so of delicious cava and canapés, as uplifting background music serenades everybody into the late afternoon, and the gardens to the rear of the villa are transformed again into a stylish dining area of five star proportions, with one phenomenal sea view. This leads seamlessly into speeches and wedding cake cutting, offering the bridal party a truly memorable experience, and some sensational photo opportunities.
When it comes to the evening and thoughts turn to entertainment, the villa’s enviable location also means that music – DJs, saxophonists, or bands are popular on this stretch of the coast – can perform outside until midnight, often incorporating a funky LED dance floor and elongated strands of twinkly lights, shining like diamonds, further captivating the magic and happiness of the day.
Our Sunshine Weddings couple and their guests took their celebration up another notch with the most incredible private firework display, a sight to behold, which certainly kept their talented photographer on her toes. Then from midnight onward, guests make their way back inside the villa to a huge party-style lounge where they can dance until the early hours and continue the fun.
