The blog post that anyone who’s getting married in our beautiful Mediterranean area was looking for. The top wedding venues and villas for Costa Blanca weddings! Yaaaaaay
This list is based in our professional expertise as destination wedding photographers in Costa Blanca, but also as personal preference -since we are from Altea (Alicante) and been living and photographing around Costa Blanca for our whole life-.
Yeah, we know the area very much. In fact we did an amazing 8 months assignment for the Valencian Tourism Agency photographing the whole Valencian Community, which meant finding places in the Costa Blanca we even didn’t know they existed.
Also, if the latest is not enough, we asked our lovely couples which wedding venues in Costa Blanca they considered and why they picked theirs.
Lets get into our top Costa Blanca wedding venues topic!
Top 9 venues and villas for Costa Blanca weddings
Altea wedding venues: the most artistic town in Costa Blanca
As you could imagine we’re starting with weddings in Altea, Alicante (Spain). As we have already said we are from this amazing town, so it was kinda expected to be the first one in our list. David grew up here and Carla started studying Fine Arts in the Altea university.
We love it so much we’re named after it (yes, d’Althea comes from this lovely town). It’s one of our favorite places in the world. There are two Altea wedding venues we’d like to show you. Since our lovely Mediterranean town has venues to celebrate from a beach wedding to a rustic wedding we’re giving you both options.
La Campaneta is the perfect place for a Mediterranean wedding. Specially in the afternoon enjoying an amazing sunset. It’s placed near Altea’s old town, but it’s even closer to the beach. Its decoration is based on Altea’s church (the famous ‘Mediterranean’s cúpula’) being an exceptional XIX century renewed venue with inside and outside areas, dance floor, parking, and also accommodation for the couple and their family.
Guest capacity: 50 to 300
Starting price: fixed amount of 2700€ + 83€ to 110€ per guest
Finca Marqués de Montemolar
The ‘Finca Marqués de Montemolar‘ is one of the most beautiful wedding villas in Costa Blanca. Next to Casa Santonja, in Javea, it’s our favourite. This 1924 palace has it all: nature, architectural heritage, exclusivity and more important: amazing Mediterranean views to Altea’s bay, to Serra Gelada’s natural park and Calpe’s Peñón d’Ifach. This is the perfect wedding venue in Costa Blanca.
Even more, the Altea wedding venue ‘Finca Marqués de Montemolar’ is declared as protected space because of its architectural heritage, since it’s a great example of XIX century bourgeoisie/middle-class and aristocracy suburban architecture.
Guest capacity: up to 400
Starting price: 3000€
Denia wedding venues: this wedding villa shines above all
And that one is our favorite wedding villa for Costa Blanca weddings. We mentioned this place a few lines before while talking about the Finca Marqués de Montemolar in Altea. We have had an incredible Canadian-French wedding there and felt in love with it. Its original town is Beniarbeig, but it’s close to Denia (which is more famous) so people normally say it’s there.
Yes, you are right: Casa Santonja is our favorite Denia wedding venue! This place is AMAZING. Its whole facade is covered in leaves, it has an amazing place for the ceremony surrounded by trees and bushes with a little chapel (the one in the pictures), a HUGE garden for the banquet with a small pond, a great indoor place for the party and lots of parking spots.
It’s mainly surrounded by nature. Of course you can hear the birds chirping and even some frogs croaking in the afternoon. We freakingly love it. We have many destination weddings scheduled there right now and we can’t wait for them to come!
Guest capacity: up to 350
Starting price: 100€ per guest
Beach weddings in Javea for Mediterranean sea lovers
Some of the most common Javea wedding venues are placed near the Mediterranean sea. That’s because Javea is basically a beach-town. It is surrounded by sand and stone beaches, and it is specially known because of its ‘calas’ (small bays) like Cala Portitxol (or Cala de la Barraca), Cala Blanca (or La Caleta) and Cala Granadella.
Now that is time for Javea weddings we’re giving you two great options for beach weddings in Javea.
A dreamy and exclusive wedding venue in Javea with amazing sea views. Cala Clemence is placed right in the middle of the Cala Portitxol, which is specially characterized because of the small white fisherman’s houses called ‘barracas’ (shacks) that can be seen all over the small bay.
Cala Clémence is a perfect venue for sunset beach weddings in Javea with a boho-Mediterranean style. It has a terrace, a garden area, dance floor and parking spots. You are totally going to love it!
Guest capacity: up to 200
Starting price: 4500€
The Beach House
The name says it all, right? Another great place for beach weddings in Javea. Placed in the middle of Javea’s bay a wedding in the Beach House will surely have amazing Mediterranean sea views. There are two options: an interior salon or a rooftop (this one has the best views, as you could imagine). The banquet can take place inside and the cocktail + first dance in the rooftop, so you can take the most out of this two options.
They also have accommodations for couples and their family called ‘The Beach House – Studios & Suites’ which is 1 minute away from the restaurant.
Guest capacity: 40 to 120
Starting price per guest: 80€ to 250€
Costa Blanca weddings with sea and mountain views in Benissa
Now we are moving a little bit to south, but not too much. Close to Calpe we have Benissa, where Zoe and Luke celebrated their wedding in a lovely summer day. They came from England to get married at this beautiful Benissa wedding venue with sea and mountain views. In this wedding we worked with Marcella, wedding planner in Spain. She was in charge of the decoration of this venue.
Right next to the famous ‘Cala Advocat’ this venue was a great place to gather their friends and family around the Mediterranean and party all day, which included a swimming pool for those who wanted to go for a swim.
Casa Marina Suites
For those small bays lovers Cala Advocat is quite a nice place. It’s small, intimate, it has mountain views and its sunsets and sunrises are extremely beautiful.
Since Casa Marina Suites is right in the middle of the Cala Advocat you can expect the same in this wedding venue. It also has a pool, parking spots, a garden to celebrate the ceremony and a tent with views to enjoy the banquet.
We felt in love with the afternoon views to the sea and mountains. While the sun was getting down everything took a orange-purple tone that put Zoe and Luke’s guests into a chill mood first, enjoying a drink or two near the pool, and in party time mode later. What a way to set the mood!
A Moraira wedding venue surrounded by boats
Our last recommendation it’s in Moraira, where Roxy and Adam, from England, got married in a warm September. Their wedding ceremony took place in Moraira’s castle, with the Mediterranean sea right in front of their eyes (literally), and then they went off to their wedding venue, which was a restaurant in the Club Naútico de Moraira (yacht club of Moraira).
Club Náutico de Moraira (Moraira’s Yacht Club)
It is less conventional but it was partly the reason why it was an amazing wedding. It was more ‘industrial’ and still had the Mediterranean side. Basically because it’s just right there!
The restaurant is very cozy, and they have a disco in the roof, a seating area and a small garden were you can chill and talk to your guests. The party takes place there and it’s a very nice way to be with everyone.
This venue is smaller (can’t really say how many people it fits), so it’s for 50-70 guests.
Different ideas for wedding venues in Alicante
These two last options are for those who are getting married in Alicante and want to have something different than a beach wedding.
One of them is not really in Costa Blanca, but is 30kms (18 miles) away to the coast, so it’s almost Costa Blanca.
The other one is in Pego.
They are both amazing and we are sure you will love them.
Almost in the heart of the Natural Park of the Marjal of Pego-Oliva you can find Casa Benigalip, a wedding villa placed in a natural environment quiet and unique. Pego is not really the Costa Blanca but it’s almost limiting with it so we considered it could fit here too as a different wedding venue. Casa Benigalip was completely restored, with an exclusive and modern design, respecting its historical roots. This wedding venue is perfect for those who love nature and want to have mountain views while celebrating their wedding.
Guest capacity: up to 400
Starting price: 2000€
And finally we have Finca Ronesa, which is 25 kms (15 miles) away from the city of Alicante. It is mainly a interior venue with different areas to all kind of celebrations, but it also has an exterior area for the wedding cocktail. They also have accommodation for guests, family and of course the couple.
Guest capacity: up to 400
Starting price per guest: 99€
