Choosing the right Wedding Venue

In my initial post I mentioned destination weddings are becoming one of the hottest trends for 2017. Once the destination is decided, the next step for any couple is to choose the venue – which ultimately is one of the most important decisions of organising the wedding (apart from the dress of course!). With such a wide selection of venues available, couples are moving away from following the norm traditions and choosing a venue which show cases their personality.

Sunborn Gibraltar is perfect for couples who are looking for a gorgeous contemporary design, 5* hospitality service within the heart of Gibraltar. The unusual venue has many areas which allows for a ceremony, cocktail reception, sit down gala dinner followed by dancing until the early hours of the morning.

The location is an important factor to consider while choosing a venue. If you choose to have a church or registry wedding by having a local wedding reception it means your guests eliminate the traveling time (and coach ride!) and spend more time sipping cava and tasting mouth-watering canapés on our wheelhouse terrace with a picturesque backdrop of the rock of Gibraltar.

The Aurora ballroom is perfectly designed to create the wow factor experience for your wedding day, as its Swarovski crystal chandeliers boasts over 4 million different colours which can transform your wedding from the sit down dinner to the “after-party”. The aurora ballroom can comfortably seat from 80 – 240 guests for gala dinner, with a dance floor and a fully loaded bar which definitely will keep your guests happy.

If a laid back wedding is more your style, a cocktail wedding reception on the wheelhouse terrace will provide a relaxed ambience with the best views of the sunset. Our head chef can design a bespoke canapé and platter menu to suit each couples budget. From sushi to Spanish ham and cheese platters and why not add a Haggen daaz ice-cream stations next to the mojito bar – we create an elegant cocktail reception unique to each couple.

Remember, every wedding can be unique to you and always remember a wedding is what you and your guests make of it so make sure you enjoy your special day!

Catch you next week!
