Spain — warm Mediterranean climate, exquisite cuisine, stunning nature. Yet, for some reason, when it comes to weddings and destination weddings, Spain, for some reason, is largely outplayed by neighbouring Italy. As a fan of Spain, and having lived there for a while in my youth, I find this unfair, as planning weddings in gorgeous locations like Ibiza, Mallorca or Andalucia has been one of the best professional experiences I had.
Let's look at some of our most favourite wedding venues in Spain.
