Wedding photos come in all shapes and sizes. You’ve got the masterpieces created by the official wedding photographer and then there are the hundreds of photos taken by all the guests who attend.
Many couples use the traditional method of placing disposable cameras on all the tables in an attempt to encourage their guests to capture all those special moments. Unfortunately, this isn’t always a great alternative; it can be expensive if you have a big wedding, the analog quality of these photos is often disappointing and then you have to try and collect all the cameras and find a way of sharing all the photos with your guests!
And what about all the photos taken by guests with their own digital cameras or latest smartphone? How on earth do you collect all these photos into one place? Some will email them to you, others will send you a CD, there’s Facebook, Instagram and numerous photos sharing websites with complicated login procedures… Not a fun task! Read More→

We have many couples who choose Sunset Beach Club for their special day. The majority of weddings take place in the “higher” season months – typically from April to October – as people like to play it safe with the weather and prefer the warmer months.
That’s all very well, but the downside is that weddings in the high season tend to be considerably more expensive; hiring of wedding venues, accommodation, it all adds up. What most people do not realise is that the weather here on the Costa del Sol is generally very good in the winter months. Yes, we get some rain but we also get lots of sun too! With average winter temperatures (November to March) of 19ºC, a winter wedding in Spain might just be the right option for you.

Unsuspecting guests may have mistaken Wednesday’s wedding for a children’s birthday party! Lisa and Jez didn’t want a formal bash but instead wanted their day to be as relaxed and truly enjoyable as possible, not just for themselves but for all of their guests, especially the younger ones! After getting married in Gibraltar the couple that live locally here on the Costa del Sol travelled back to the Hotel where they greeted guests with a cava and canapé reception followed by gala dinner and then after party. The bride pulled out all the stops when it came to decorating the banquet room, brightly coloured balloons, assorted chair ribbons and incredible amounts of sweets and chocolate on every available surface, not to mention the cake! Words can’t describe, so hopefully this picture does the trick, a fantastically fun day was enjoyed by all!
Today is the official start to the Sunset Beach Club wedding season! Our first wedding of the year is that of Liisa and Taisto, which as you may have guessed from their names are a Finnish couple.
