From dresses and jewellery, to photographers, plus the nitty-gritty of which documents you need – all the ideas you need to organise your wedding is here.

Firstly, and most importantly, you and your partner (los novios) need to decide where you want to say your votos (vows). There’s a huge range of venues available for wedding ceremonies in Andalucia, from beautiful haciendas set within groves of orange and almond trees, to grand hotels, to smaller, more intimate venues. Whether you envision saying Si consiento (“I do”) in a historic city (Seville  or Granada, say), in a quiet mountain village (the Alpujarras) or by a beach (Costa del Sol, Costa de la Luz), you will find what you’re looking for here in Andalucia.

Of course you get the wonderful Andalucian sun and blue sky for free, so just add to that the warm, informal Spanish people and throw in some tasty tapas – or a full-blown five-course sit-down dinner, if that’s more your thing – and you have the makings of a truly memorable occasion.
