Destination wedding

Marbella, in southern Spain, is one of the most romantic places in the world for a luxury wedding. This beachfront town, along the Costa del Sol, is renowned for its gorgeous blue beaches, vibrant dining and nightlife, plus its colorful bougainvillea-lined streets, making it such a fun and relaxing destination wedding location. Even better, there are many amazing luxury wedding venues in Marbella, ideal for couples seeking sunshine, elegance, and culture for their celebrations.

Where can I get married in Marbella? You actually have so many amazing options, as the Costa del Sol region does luxury so well. Here are some of the best Marbella wedding venues in the region, with unique history, architecture, and five-star experiences just made for passion and romance! 

1. Hacienda San Jose

Couples seeking a luxurious, but authentic, 18th-century Spanish villa will fall in love with the idea of a Hacienda San Jose wedding. With exclusive use of this picturesque villa, you can celebrate in style, enjoying stunning views of the distant Sierra Blanca mountains. 

Gorgeous outdoor spaces abound here, so say your vows in one of the property’s gorgeous gardens or lawns before dancing the night away on the traditional stone patio. Or, there’s also a historic chapel on site for your ceremony. This family-run space specializes in weddings, hosting up to 200 guests, delivering exceptional hospitality and bespoke experiences. 

There are ten stylish bedrooms within the villa, along with a huge swimming pool, so it’s an ideal choice for a small destination wedding in Marbella. And your wedding photography here will be so beautiful, as we can take images against the villa’s whitewashed walls, terracotta balconies with inviting arches, or basking in the golden light as it streams down into the hacienda’s orchards and vineyards. 

2. Finca Cortesin

Finca Cortesin is one of the best places to get married in Marbella if you seek the epitome of elegance and luxury. This resort, in the traditional Andalusian style, is right on the beach, but with plenty of features you and your guests will love, including a spa and beach club, decadent dining, and spacious suites and rooms.

Your Finca Cortesin wedding will make you feel like royalty, whether you want to say your vows in the afternoon sun, under an archway of roses, or toast your love in one of the resort’s immaculate courtyards. Your wedding party will have exclusive use of the venue, along with its 67 guest suites, ideal for couples looking for privacy and serenity.

With abundant flowers, palms, and ivy-covered whitewashed archways, your Finca Cortesin wedding photos will be bright, romantic, and packed with editorial-style glamor. 

3. Villa La Susana

Villa La Susana is one of the best wedding venues in Marbella for intimate celebrations. Originally designed as a luxury holiday resort, with three private villas for up to 40 guests, it also just oozes relaxation — think Mediterranean views, exclusive beach access, and inviting pool decks. 

With an immaculate beachfront lawn, you can say your vows with a sea breeze behind you, then dine and drink with your loved ones all night long, with long communal tables ideal for catching up with friends. If you want to keep the party going, there’s even a fully soundproof nightclub on site!

A Villa La Susana wedding delivers boho style, chic elegance, and unforgettable hospitality, all only ten minutes from the Marbella city center. Your wedding photos will be just as stylish, as I can capture romantic images of sweet kisses in the resort’s colorful gardens, or candid snaps by the pool as you beam with happiness. 

4. Finca Monasterio

If you love the idea of Marbella weddings with a historical connection to the area, Finca Monasterio is a former 18th-century monastery, now a romantic villa and wedding venue in the Cadiz countryside. This space is a beautiful blend of tradition, rustic chic, and country charms. The finca proudly serves organic local produce and wine too, so you can be confident that your guests will be treated to the highest quality hospitality.

You can select from a range of indoor and outdoor spaces, but I love the romance of saying your vows within the Jasmine Flower Gazebo, part of a gorgeous garden and lawn. Then, move to the Celebration Garden, dripping in roses and blooming flowers, for an al fresco reception and dinner.

Adorned in twinkling fairy lights, with bespoke designs for your tables, a Finca Monasterio wedding is unforgettable, romantic, and so stylish. The property’s Olive Grove and Orange Courtyard are also inviting spaces for a pre-wedding aperitif or family barbeque. 

5. Anantara Villa Padierna Palace

A true five-star luxury resort, Anantara Villa Padierna Palace is a spectacular choice for a grand, elegant Spanish wedding. This stunning resort, with its pale pink facade and luxury suites, is reminiscent of a romantic castle, and you and your guests will love the property’s spa, golf courses, and wine tastings.

This large resort is also well suited to large weddings, with stylish suites and rooms for all of your guests and plenty of amazing activities for them to enjoy, including golf, and a wellness spa, and the concierge can organize private sightseeing tours for your party. 

There are so many options here for your Anantara Villa Padierna Palace wedding — say your vows in a grand Roman amphitheater, surrounded by loved ones, or in an intimate ceremony in the property’s small chapel. You’ll love your open-air reception in the Linares Terrace, a dreamy, outdoor terrace, a palatial space, adorned in marble and dripping in florals, blooms, and twinkling lights. No matter what spaces you select, your wedding photos here will be so elegant, romantic, and sweet. 

6. Casa de la Era

A Casa de la Era wedding is going to be so wonderfully unique! It’s actually an ancient wheat farm that was transformed into a family-owned restaurant and now a luxury wedding venue and it offers both mountain and sea views. It’s ideal for couples looking for something a little bit different, but also with a strong connection to the history of the region. 

The ceremony space is on the era, which is Spanish for a wheat-threshing floor, and is an unbelievable circular stone mosaic, surrounded by Roman columns — such a meaningful place to say your vows with a connection to ancient Spanish history! Or, there’s also a beautiful outdoor amphitheater that you can utilize, plus outdoor and indoor areas for your reception. For small weddings, there is a four-bedroom villa on site, which could also serve as your getting-ready rooms. 

This space has such a gorgeous and romantic aesthetic, with a completely original style that you won’t find anywhere else. The stunning stonework, colorful gardens, and terraced landscapes will all add such stylish elements to your wedding photography as well. 

7. The Marbella Club

The Marbella Club is such a beautiful choice for a wedding offering glamor, luxury, and Spanish elegance. Originally built as a beach hideaway for a local family, it later grew into a popular beach club and resort with celebrities and jet setters. 

It’s such an idyllic and romantic beachfront wedding venue, with a range of spaces, depending on your party size. Small elopements work well in the Secret Garden, a romantic courtyard garden, with the fragrant aroma of tropical flowers and fruits all around you. Or, Villa del Mar, the resort’s most prestigious private villa, with sea views, lush green lawns, and contemporary style, adorned with traditional Spanish art, ceramics, and furnishings. 

No matter which space you select, the hospitality, cuisine, and wine here are unforgettable, with lots of relaxing outdoor spaces to connect with loved ones and share meals and stories. 

Your Marbella Club wedding photos will be stylish, light, and bright, with ocean views, lush greenery and flowers, and intricate stonework and mosaics to add texture and variety. 

8. Finca Amalur

Last but certainly not least, Finca Amalur is a great choice for couples looking for a relaxed and authentic seaside wedding venue. Offering convenience, just a few minutes away from the city center of Marbella, this artistic and creative space is beautifully designed in blue and white hues, channeling the location’s proximity to the Mediterranean. 

With a stylish landscaped courtyard where you can say your vows, overlooking the sea, your Finca Amalur wedding photos will capture the beautiful Spanish coastline, particularly near sunset. Then, dance the night away outside, enjoying the balmy temperatures as you look up at the beautiful stars, visible from the beach. 

It’s worth noting the catering is exceptional here as well, created using local produce and ingredients from the Andalusian region. Their kitchens are also both Halal and Kosher certified.
