Winter weddings in Spain

Spain is one of the few countries in Europe that's also perfect for a winter wedding.

Due to the mild, Mediterranean climate of the Costa Blanca, the temperatures can be excellent for winter weddings in Spain.

After sunset, it quickly becomes dark and often even chilly.

If you want to have dinner outdoors, we can rent some terrace heaters for you.
