Alicante Destination Wedding— Altea, Alicante

Alicante is without a doubt one of the most beautiful areas in Spain. And, if you travel out into the small, quintessential town of Altea, you’ll find white houses and cobblestone streets with direct views of the sea and beach.

Finca Marqués de Montemolar is located on a hill, with many wedding spaces including a ceremony area that has a view of the beach and it is absolutely stunning at sunset! This finca is the best of both worlds because when you’re on the property you feel like you’re the only people in the world, but in reality you’re so close to the beach and town.

I’ll let the wedding day speak for itself in the photos. If you want your wedding photos to look like these, then contact us and let’s start the planning.

Tips for Having Your Wedding at Finca Marqués de Montemolar

If you’re planning your wedding in Altea, Alicante, hurray! There are some things to consider when it comes to your photos at this specific finca, and these are some tips we’ve noticed brings us success:

  1. Get ready at the finca. Finca Marqués de Montemolar has a handful of incredibly romantic suites to get ready in separately. The rooms are spacious and very photogenic so you don’t have to worry about having your family and friends being there while you get ready.
  2. Have your ceremony later in the day. If you want the best lighting and weather for your ceremony time, aim for later in the day. Midday is usually the worst time because the sun is high and will cast shadows on your faces! If you aim for anytime past 5pm, then you’ll be getting much nicer lighting for some beautiful ceremony photos!
  3. Leave room in your schedule for at least 30 minutes of portrait photos on the property after the ceremony. The entire property has beautiful spaces with gardens and lovely corners to take portraits in. Make sure you schedule in enough time to make some portraits of just you two happen! Right after the ceremony or during cocktail hour is usually most convenient.

Wedding Ceremony at Finca Marqués de Montemolar 

This particular wedding ceremony was around 6pm in June. They had an entrance by the groom, then the bride, followed by a prayer, a saying of vows, a short and sentimental speech by the officiant, and then a triumphal exit down the aisle.
