Catholic church weddings at Santa Teresa de Jesus in La Cala de Mijas
In an adorable church located in the centre of the La Cala de Mijas, the fabulous bridal couple, Kirsty and David, recently tied the knot.
Located between the towns of Fuengirola and Marbella, close to popular urbanization of Calahonda sits La Cala de Mijas, and there you can find a charming Spanish church, erected in 1971 in homage to the patron saint of Cala, Saint Teresa of Jesus.
The church, only 25 minutes from Malaga international airport, is happy to take foreign weddings any day of the week (Mon-Sat) and the team at Sunshine Wedding Spain team always make sure that all the paperwork is taken care of, as was the case with Kirsty and David’s marriage, so all they had to do was relax and enjoy their special day.
Kirsty and David booked the church and venue during covid. Because of the restrictions, they didn’t have an opportunity to view their wedding location or venue until the wedding week. However, they still persevered and what a fantastic day it was for all.
As the wedding guests gathered inside the bridal couple’s chosen wedding ceremony venue, the charming church in La Cala, refreshingly air conditioned, the sentimental song Everglow by Coldplay sounded, sung by the talented Nano.
After some very emotional vows, the Catholic ceremony ended with Kirsty and David, now as husband and wife, exiting the beautiful church to Ellie Goulding’s “How long will I Love You.”
From La Cala de Mijas, the wedding guests were transported to the grounds of a typical Spanish hacienda set on the foothills of Mijas Costa. There the large expanses of grass, orchards, flowing fountains and tree-lined driveway, made for a stunning setting and the perfect place to hold an outdoor summer wedding.
By a large flat lawn area near the pool, the guests enjoyed a delicious selection of drinks and wide range of canapes including crispy garlic and herb smashed potato, faux potato and onion tortilla with saffron aioli, crunchy skewers of chicken with honey mustard sauce, beef drizzled with truffle oil and cheese croquettes, to name but a few. The refined wedding reception ambience was completed with a vibrant flamenco style set by guitarist Nano.
Following on from that, the succulent main course, a fantastic feast including a choice of pill pill prawns or duck salad for starters followed by creamy pumpkin roast with onion and baby carrots, was served in the verdant garden area which had been decorated with rustic wedding décor. Round tables were dressed with white tablecloth and natural elements for a simple yet elegant touch, creating a gorgeous rural wedding feel at this beautiful wedding hacienda in Spain.
After the wedding breakfast had been served, it was time for Kirsty and David to cut their delicious three-tier wedding cake—vanilla sponge with passion fruit buttercream and vanilla raspberry and white chocolate. A truly ‘sweet’ moment which led perfectly into their first dance.
The first dance was followed by a live DJ gig with a catch playlist which had all the guests, most from Scotland, and many many proudly modeling tartan kilts, dancing late into the evening.
We wish this lovely couple many years of happiness together! And a huge thanks to the talented Issy for the sensational images.
