At one point in your life, one of the many fantasies that probably crossed your mind was having a romantic wedding in a different country. Even now as you’re older, that may still be the case! Well, guess what? We discovered this charming boutique hotel tucked away in Spain, and learning about the place not only made us visualize our dreams, but showed us practicalities to having a destination wedding as well. We’re excited to share with you what we found!
Documenting one of the best days of your life is very important, and a venue can definitely help set the tone for that. If you’d describe the view at Finca Monasterio, beautiful would be an understatement. Situated in Sotogrande, South East Spain, the hotel carries the look of an 18th Century monastery. But don’t be fooled by its exteriors because Finca Monasterio actually has Filipino roots–the region was initially developed by the Ayala family! The gorgeous hotel houses modern comforts and amenities, and their rooms have a rustic and earthy style, transporting you to a magical but homey place. You can definitely be sure that taking your wedding photos here will look nothing short of amazing!
Bringing you the ease of wedding planning, the hotel has event planners and coordinators and expert staff who are more than happy to execute your dream wedding for you. Having a private wedding is totally achievable too, as you can request to have the venue all to yourself with a total of 21 rooms. The option of getting exclusivity and intimacy is a plus. But if you’re inviting a large party, there are also other hotels nearby which they can settle in, so you don’t have to worry about that either.
They can also assist with the paperwork needed for your nuptials, and going beyond that, they can also organize your reception dinner, transportation, and other pre and post-wedding activities as well. Isn’t that awesome? Having a team present at the venue is very helpful! Anything that can lessen wedding planning stress is truly valuable to any couple.
Whether you’ve figured out the menu you want to serve or you don’t know where to start, the chefs promise delectable and artisanal food options that can match any event. Good food always seals the deal, and the sumptuous food served will only ensure that your wedding will be unforgettable!
If you’re staying there to unwind, say on your honeymoon, taking in everything around you is the easiest and most natural thing to do–and as you can see the view doesn’t disappoint! Go on full vacation and pamper mode by either taking a dip in the pool or getting a relaxing spa treatment. If you’re up for an adventure, there are plenty of places to go to and things to do during your stay! Either go horseback riding, watch a polo match, or play golf–all within a comfortable distance of the hotel. You can do any of these too before the wedding if you wish! Seize the moment as you’re in Europe!
Destination weddings can be one of the most enjoyable decisions you can make for your wedding! Remember to also enjoy your wedding planning journey ladies, and remember that this only happens once. At the end of the day, the most important thing about your marriage is your relationship with your husband-to-be and the life you two will build!
