One of the most common questions we are asked here at Fly Away Bride is what country would we recommend having a destination wedding in and well, it’s a question that is nearly impossible to answer. We are incredibly lucky in Europe to have such beauty on our doorstep and each country on the continent has something truly unique and special to offer and today, we are looking at one particular area that we are constantly inspired by; Granada, Spain. One of the most stunning and culturally rich destinations in Europe, will be sharing a small selection beautiful wedding venues in Granada and the areas surrounding the region. The Alhambra is perhaps the most notable indicator of Granada’s fascinating history and the decorated palaces and gardens attract thousands of visitors to the area each year, so it’s no wonder that it has become a hot spot for destination weddings in Spain.
Casa de los Bates is a stunningly unique nineteenth century villa ideally located in the heart of Granada. Nestled on a hill top, it offers spectacular views of the Sierra Nevada Mountains, the Castle of Salobreña with the beautiful blues of the Mediterranean sea in the distance. The house has been lovingly restored in recent times with antiques and family heirlooms on show throughout the house. Weddings ceremonies can be held in the beautiful gardens and dinner is usually served under the stars, a truly romantic setting for a Spanish wedding.
The Palace of Los Córdova
Located just 18km from Granada, Corjito del Marques is a beautifully restored convent that is now privately owned. The history of the village is still seen in the beauty of the buildings today and with a chapel onsite, two indoor and multiple outdoor banqueting spaces, it is an ideal venue for a destination wedding. Corjito del Marques can be rented on an exclusive basis, offering you privacy and the freedom to plan a wedding that is as intimate or as lavish as you like. Given that it can potentially hold up to 200 people for dinner, it really is a brilliant option for those that are concerned about their guest list.
