Barcelona Destination Wedding Venue— Mas de Sant Lleí

Barcelona is without a doubt one of the most beautiful cities in Spain. You’ve got the beach, incredible beach coastlines and wedding venues, and some of the best food in all of Spain.

What we love about Mas de Sant Lleí in particular is that it’s just a 20-minute drive out of Barcelona city, and 40 minutes from Barcelona’s international airport, which makes it super accessible and makes your life so much easier when it comes to transporting and accommodating your guests. That’s just on the practical side of things, though! This venue is absolutely one of the most gorgeous wedding venues in Barcelona. If you’re interested in booking Mas de Sant Lleí for your destination wedding, book through their website.

I’ll let the wedding day speak for itself in the photos, as shown below. 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 Mas de Sant Lleí, Barcelona

If you’re planning to have your wedding at Mas de Sant Lleí, hurray! There are some things to consider when it comes to your photos at this specific wedding venue in Barcelona, and these are some tips we’ve noticed brings us success:

  1. Do a first look! We always recommend to couples getting married here to do a first look. Mas de Sant Lleí has so many gorgeous nook and corners that if you decide to do a first look, it will look amazing.
  2. Have your ceremony later in the day, in an outdoor space. If you want the best lighting and weather for your ceremony time, aim for later in the day. Midday is usually (depending on the season) the worst time because the sun is high and will cast ugly shadows on your faces! If you aim for anytime past 4pm, 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. The Mas de Sant Lleí property is quite large and offers a lot of beautiful backdrops for portraits! Make sure you schedule in enough time to make some portraits of just you two happen.

Wedding Ceremony at Mas de Sant Lleí, Barcelona

I’d love to show you how beautiful a ceremony can be at Mas de Sant Lleí! This wedding venue is perfect for up to 300 guests and they work with the highest quality of caterers in the area. That’s why a lot of couples who are having destination weddings go with Mas de Sant Lleí, because the quality of services really is one in a million.

This particular wedding ceremony was around 4pm in October, in the cloister-like garden area they have. The groom enters, and then the bride with her father. A prayer commences the ceremony, followed by the couple reading personal vows and then a sentimental speech by the officiant. To end the ceremony, the couple happily exits after exchanging rings!

Wedding Cocktail and Reception at Mas de Sant Lleí

The cocktail, followed by the reception were held in two different spots— one right beside the ceremony area, and then the reception in a large ballroom, big enough to seat all their guests very comfortably. The reception location transforms into absolute magic once the lighting and decoration are up! These are the moments that literally feel magical. Even Jake and I had to pinch ourselves a couple times to make sure we weren’t dreaming!
