Destination Weddings in Malaga
Malaga has always been a popular destination. The Phoenicians established it and then came the Greeks, Carthaginians, Visigoths, Arabs and Christians. The most recent invaders have done much to change the area but its not all big tourist hotels. Brilliant under a deep blue sky the narrow streets of old Malaga, balconies decked with flowers, offer a delightful setting in which to get married in Spain.
Malaga also has an impressive cultural pedigree. Pablo Picasso was born in the Plaza de la Merced. Some of the maestro’s work is on show at the local Museum of Fine Arts. You and your partner might take in this sight on a romantic stroll to the Muslim palaces of the Alcazaba fortress. The lush gardens around the fortress provide a refreshing oasis of green where you can relax and look forward to your marriage ceremony or even take photos in during your big day.
Get married in the garden of a city hotel shaded with palm and orange trees, or celebrate your big event on the beach. A wedding barbeque would be a welcome twist on the traditional reception. Fried fish is a local favourite – try the fresh anchovies, red mullet, whiting or baby squid. A typical dish on the beaches is sardines grilled on spits of bamboo over charcoal. Or maybe you would like to sip on a savoury gazpacho made with almonds and grapes as you dance the warm evening away.
However you celebrate your destination wedding in Malaga you can be sure of excellent weather. Malaga enjoys over 320 days of sunshine a year.
