The Ceremonial Garden, which is a little secret garden tucked away at the back of the Cortijos grounds, is the perfect setting for your wedding ceremony. The garden has recently been cleared and planted with an abundance of white flowering plants as well as wisteria, lilac and jasmine to create a beautifully perfumed area. You have the choice of marrying beneath our white gazebo for the more traditional feel or underneath our magnificent rubber tree for a more relaxed and natural ceremony. This garden then leads to the pool bar area where you can enjoy your cocktail and canape hour around the pool.

The extensive mature grounds bursting with pine trees and rare tropical plants are the most striking backdrop to your wedding, vast enough to accommodate a large wedding party of up to 120 on the main lawn circling the beautiful lagoon style swimming pool. With all bedrooms boasting direct access to the lawn, this scenic area is also ideal for a post wedding day BBQ or lunch.

The pool extends from the beach area, making it suitable for young children, whilst the pool bar is the perfect place for adult guests to spend the afternoon or recover from the previous day's celebrations.

The pool bar area is a great area to have your pre dinner cocktail hour and can then double up as an evening party area with dance area and cocktail bar for the smaller weddings of up to 40 guests and for the larger wedding the evening dance area is located on our main terrace with covered dancefloor area, chill out spaces and indoor lounge and bar area. Lit with 1000s of fairylights, candles and lanterns this area becomes a truly romantic and magical back drop for your evening entertainment.

We are pleased to announce that we have appointed Sana Catering Marbella as our in house caterer. They have developed a special range of menus designed to suit the style of weddings at the Cortijo using fresh, local produce and are an ideal collaboration for the rustic setting. You can choose from an authentic Spanish tapas assortment, to a specialist BBQ, Moroccan feast or a more formal 3 course menu and the canape and dessert menus will leave you spoilt for choice. They also offer a delicious range of vegetarian dishes and all gourmet options can be sampled beforehand at your complementary tasting held at the Cortijo, the ideal pre wedding treat!
