Today’s bridal story takes us to a beautiful finca with panoramic views of sea and mountain, just 30 minutes from Malaga Airport.

There on a splendid summer’s day, the first Friday of June, the beautiful bridal couple Jennie and Andy tied the knot.

“I do” under the beautifully decorated wedding arbor.

The set-up could not have been more picturesque, with 14,000 meters of garden, this private Marbella wedding venue has numerous enclaves filled with beauty. It’s a nature-lover’s paradise and brought Jennie and Andy’s wedding vision to life.

The day started with the wedding guests arriving at this breathtaking Andalusian finca and enjoying a welcome drink on the upper and lower level of the grounds’ built-in pergola, a private place to sit and chat.

From there the wedding guests were ushered to be seated in the ceremony area which had been set up in the most whimsical of spaces, a quiet retreat made all the more romantic as the radiant bride walked towards the outdoor wedding arbor that was surrounded by lush greenery to the sound of Canon in D played on piano and cello.

There she was joined with the dashing groom in an emotive wedding ceremony surrounded by family and friends and an oasis of peace which made the perfect place to say “I do.”

After a warm-hearted recessional dance to “You’ve got the Love”, Jennie and Andy, now as husband and wife, joined their guests back on the elegant grounds around the built-in pergola. There, with stunning views to the iconic mountain that looms proudly above Marbella and the Costa del Sol, the bridal couple and their guests enjoyed some refreshments and a selection of canopies including mouthwatering: Blinis of marinated salmon tartar, sea bass and lime ceviche, an assortment of Iberian hams and cheese, Thai chicken fingers and baby shrimps cones. All the while enjoying the brilliant Spanish June weather and a great chilled-vibe music set by the talented percussionist Alex, on bongos.
