A wedding in the Costa Brava...
One of the most beautiful & picturesque places to get married in Catalunya is the Costa Brava where the hilltop towns are described as the Catalan Tuscany and many of the beaches are small quiet coves with clear blue water.
Our good friends got married in the small castle town of Begur in a stunning outdoor venue which overlooks the castle and village lights. Begur is five minutes from the coast (Costa Brava) and its beautiful cove beaches and about an hour and a half´s drive from Barcelona. As such, this area is a popular wedding destination for the people of Catalunya.
2) The Hotel Convent in Begur is 100 metres walk from the beach and has lush green gardens which make the perfect rural setting for a wedding. The advantage of this venue is that you can hire out the entire hotel and grounds (25 rooms) and have it all for yourselves and your guests. The best option for the wedding banquet is to set up a marquee in the grounds. The hotel helps you with the organisation & catering for your special day and are really friendly.
3) La Plaça Madremanya is a rustic & charming boutique hotel in the middle of a tiny village near the Costa Brava. It can host initimate weddings but is also known for its incredible catering which is known to be one of the best in the area. (Also definitely recommend this hotel for a holiday break...)
4) El Castell D´Empordà is where we celebrated our wedding day just over a year ago and I really believe it´s one of the most beautiful settings for a wedding in this area.
The castle was converted into a 4 star hotel & restaurant and has real charm and incredible views. The food is great and the warm castle up-lighting and greenery make it a perfect location for a special day.
The hotel help you with recommendations for florists, photographers etc and are flexible with the dinner options for the wedding banquet. There are indoor and outdoor options for dining and a suitable covered area if the weather is a little cooler than expected. The castell can host weddings of up to 180 guests.
Here are a few photos from our wedding...
