Spanish vineyard and winery elopements

Probably the most unique type of wedding venues in Spain are bodegas and wineries next to vineyards that extend as far as the eye can see. Spain has been popular for centuries as a wine-producing country, mainly because Spanish families have kept nurturing their vineyards and winery businesses from one generation to another.

Many of these family-owned vineyards and wineries were transformed into venues that you can rent for a wine-themed wedding. One of your options is a rustic winery for weddings in Haro where you can have a ceremony inside the venue’s Barrel Room, literally surrounded by wine barrels stored in a special room to complete the aging process.

You can also tie the knot in a well-lit Sala Central with a completely historic ambiance or at the wide garden with the facade of the century-old venue in the background.

Diverse elopement venues in Malaga

Malaga, just like Spain in its entirety, is known for many things, such as historic tours, museums, amazing beach views, and its reputation as one of the oldest cities in the world.

If you’re the kind of couple who wants a beach ceremony followed by an exploration of Spanish history and culture, Malaga is an excellent choice for a wedding location. Aside from its cultural and historic background, Malaga lies on the Costa del Sol, which means lots of beachside venues for your elopement in Europe.

We’ve picked wedding venues in Malaga that are not too crowded so you can enjoy a private wedding in a serene environment. One of them is this seaside cottage with an open ceremony space by the beach and a private pool to enjoy after your wedding.

From a seaside venue, there’s also an elevated hotel in Malaga where you can get married out in the garden with surreal mountain views for a ceremony backdrop. The hotel building is covered in crawling greenery that turns into a sunset palette during autumn! How lovely is that?

Modern beach weddings in Costa Brava

Speaking of beach weddings, there’s a certain part of Spain where the nightlife at the beach never ceases. It’s the well-loved Costa Brava where hotels, villas, and palaces for weddings line up along the shore.

One of them is a modern hotel by the beach where you can bring your whole family with kids for an outdoor wedding in front of the sea. The hotel’s Michelin-starred restaurant will surely give you the best dining experience of your life.

Another lovely venue for an elopement in Spain is a 5-star beach hotel along Costa Brava where you can get married in the leafy gardens with magnificent views of the sea. The hotel’s bay terrace is available for a pleasant reception under the stars.

Religious wedding ceremonies all over Spain

Spain is also known for historic churches and church ruins. In a predominantly Catholic country like Spain, you will never run out of religious sanctuaries to get married in. Many beautiful Catholic churches are scattered among the different Spanish regions such as Malaga, Marbella, Barcelona, and Costa del Sol.

Most of these churches have a very historic ambiance so you can be sure to get the solemn vibe that a religious wedding deserves. Take note, however, that most priests perform a Spanish ceremony and you would need someone fluent in Spanish to arrange your church wedding. That’s where our wedding planner in Spain can help you.

Epic destination weddings in the historic Catalonia

Another interesting place to get married in Spain is Catalonia because of its historic venues where you can have a wedding ceremony. Some of the most unique and grand historic venues here are a hundred-year-old vineyard and museum, and an 18th-century manor house with a chapel on the first floor for a religious wedding.

The hundred-year-old vineyard and museum is full of history, starting from 1914 when the founders transformed a whole desert into a sea of vineyards to the year when it built its cathedral of winery, which is the very first concrete building in Spain. Today, this whole estate has reception rooms and open spaces turned into historic venues for the most epic wedding in Spain.

The 18th-century manor house, on the other hand, is another interesting elopement venue in Catalonia with its own chapel and function rooms for indoor weddings. The historic manor house built in 1787 is just one part of the whole 500-hectare private estate. The rest is occupied by a wide courtyard, spacious gardens, and a woodland offering panoramic mountain views for a scenic outdoor wedding.

Posh destination weddings in Ibiza

Last but not least is the world’s clubbing capital, Ibiza. Luxury beach elopement venues, rustic countryside hotels, and cliff-top wedding spots line up along this Spanish island in the Mediterranean Sea, offering crystal clear beach views for your wedding ceremony in Spain. It’s the perfect location for couples who love the boho, adventurous, and beach vibe for their destination wedding in Europe.
