Ceremony and reception
Although not legally binding, ceremonies are conducted by a qualified pastor in English. Your own written vows with a blessing can be incorporated into the ceremony. Ceremonies can take place on the tree-top terrace, natural terrace and woodland glade. Receptions are hosted in the woodland glade which offers a truly spell-binding setting both day and night and includes a purpose-built dancefloor and stage. As Rincon de la Reina is woodland based, there are no sound restrictions so wedding parties are invited to celebrate through the night.
Wedding packages are tailored to every couple to ensure their personal needs are met. Venue hire includes exclusive use of all grounds and amenities, as well as the necessary table and chairs, table linen, crockery, cutlery, and glassware. The venue team will also strive to cater to your every requirement, promising a first-class service at every request. Delicious Spanish cuisine is home-cooked on site with locally sourced ingredients and a bespoke menu can be provided at every stage of the day – from a champagne reception with canapés immediately after the ceremony to a full three-course daytime or evening meal, all complemented by a flexible bar at a competitive rate.
From beautiful bouquets to tasteful table decorations, the venue works with a local florist to create your chosen flower arrangements and ensure your special day is decorated in style. The venue also offers the services of an in-house cakemaker and a hair and make-up artist can be arranged for the brides and bridesmaids on the morning of the wedding.
