Nerja, often considered the jewel of the Costa del Sol, offers fabulous scenery for a destination wedding in the sunshine.
Mainly known for its natural beauty, this pretty coastal town located on the western part in Malaga province, with plenty of amazing tourist attractions also holds a deep history evidenced by the primitive paintings found in its famous Nerja caves, discovered in 1959.
This beautiful part of Spain has so much to offer couples planning a destination wedding in the sunshine including great accommodation for your wedding guests and some gorgeous wedding venues.
In today’s feature article, we are delighted to highlight one of our favourites, a fantastic mountain-top villa with the most stunning views overlooking Nerja and the Mediterranean sea.
Villa Cielo (Sky in English), is a hidden luxury villa tucked away in the foothills of Nerja, just 15 minutes from the town. This secluded luxury villa which boasts an infinity pool, outside bar and bbq area, a games room, large terraces and lush gardens makes for the ideal setting for your wedding in Spain.
Recently renovated to the highest standards, this property sleeps up to 16 people and is ideal for an intimate wedding of up to 80 people; offering a real WOW factor on arrival when the narrow, winding road that leads to the property opens up to spectacular views to the Mediterranean sea.
Let’s take a look at how a wedding day at this stunning villa could unfold.
Imagine your guests enjoying a welcome drink of homemade lemonade and some ambient piano music at the hands of an accomplished local musician before they are invited to be seated at the ceremony area, in an unparalleled space that offers 360º views of rustic Spanish countryside and the shimmering Mediterranean sea.
There, below a wedding arch decorated with birds of paradise and palm leaves creating a tropical look, and with the warm sun’s rays shining down, the ceremony area perched on the side of the Nerja mountain will offer endless photo opportunities.
Following a romantic recessional dance, you and your guests will enjoy a poolside drinks reception and alfresco dining on the grounds’ charming terrace, where the relaxing sounds of rippling water will guarantee a peaceful dining as the sun sets adding a warm golden glow to the affair.
Following on from a fantastic spread, the all-important speeches and the traditional cutting of the wedding cake, it will be time to get your dancing shoes on and party.
Enjoy the vibes from a catchy playlist at the hands of a professional DJ or live sax player where you and your guests can enjoy an open bar with late night snacks served until the early hours that will seal the most magical of days surrounded by the most romantic of backdrops.
If Villa Cielo Nerja sounds like your ideal wedding venue, we invite you to come and visit this truly amazing venue.
