WHY CHOOSE NERJA FOR YOUR WEDDING

PREVIOUS / NEXT

WEDDING by KRISS on 20 january 2016

With more than 100 weddings happening in Nerja every year (if the figures we were given from word of mouth are correct), the small town of only 25000 inhabitants seems to attract lots of brides and grooms from all over the world to celebrate their union.
There are lots of businesses running on weddings here, such as venues, photographers, wedding planners, and a lot of these weddings celebrate the union of people who live in other countries.
So why do they choose this little piece of paradise ? We have tried to narrow down a list of possible reasons why anyone in their right mind should consider getting married here !

1 - The weather.
With only 30 days of rain per year more or less, and whole summers going without one drop of rain you can hardly get a better guarantee that your wedding day will be sunny.
Summers are usually a lot cooler here than they are inlands but still the temperature can rise and July and August can be difficult months to wear a tuxedo or a wedding dress or cocktail dress without sweating !

2 - The scenery.
Beaches, criques, rocks, sand, palm trees, picturesque villages, old magnificent churches, typical architecture, mountains, waterfalls… The scenery is breathtaking and ideal for a wedding.

3 - The atmosphere.
With more fiestas than I can recall, events of all kinds that always lead people to dance, sing, be loud and make some life, Spain is a lively country, actually far beyond any other country I have been to (except perhaps Japan but in a completely different manner).
The atmosphere here is very relaxed and it seems time has frozen somewhere during the 80s.
I have experienced living in this place for several months and I still sometimes feel as if I was in a movie.

4 - The food.
Spain as well as all the countries bathed in the mediterranean have a very diverse, colorful and delicious cuisine.
Here it also comes at fairly reasonable prices if you know where to look.

5 - Photography.
Yes for most couples (even if Vogue magazine seems to think otherwise) relying on the performance of the latest iphone and their relatives skills to take their wedding photos is not an option and I can vouch for them they are right ! This kind of goes with the scenery because the light is very harsh in this sun drenched part of the world and clouds rarely here to tame it.
So, if the conditions are not ideal for all broad day light middle of the street portrait photography, the scenery largely makes up for it offering tons of options to play with the light (well maybe not that many but still a few to make our job possible !).
And sunrises and sunsets are very beautiful here (though not so much in summer) and offer a great light for wedding photography !

This is a short list I have dressed and I am probably missing on a few things such as the costs, venues etc… But these are the main obvious things that came up to mind while writing this post ! If you feel like completing this list you are very welcome .
