I have updated this post, that I originally posted back in 2015!! I think many couples wanting to get married here in Mallorca looking for a wedding with a rustic yet elegant feel will love this post. When you get married in a private finca for hire, you are left with a white canvas that you need to paint from scratch. You need to bring in everything from the tables to the catering, to the last fork and plate etc. What I like about these wedding venues is that they are rustic, they have that old traditional Mallorcan feel, they are beautiful AND what is most important, everything is already done for you. Most of these place already have their own wedding coordinators but you can still hire your own wedding planner if you wish to.
I am fortunate enough to have visited some of the best wedding venues in Mallorca. Every year a few new ones pop up and it makes it more interesting for me as I get to photograph in a new environment. Mallorca is a place that amazes me constantly as I keep discovering new spots -even though I have lived here for most of my life- . Today I want to concentrate on those venues that are in the country, but at the same time are also chic, are able to cater for at least a medium size wedding and preserve the Mallorcan spirit. These are only a few as there are so many of them, more to come…!
Hola! Como sabéis, gracias a mi fantástico trabajo tengo la suerte de conocer muchos sitios preciosos para bodas. En Mallorca tenemos tanto donde elegir! Es un sitio ideal para casarse y tanto puedes elegir una preciosa finca en el campo como un hotel al lado del mar, un boutique hotel en la montaña, o un encantador hotel en la ciudad…Hoy quiero enseñaros algunos sitios que me gustan para una boda en el campo. A mí me gustan los sitios rústicos pero con encanto y lujo sencillo. Hay muchos sitios preciosos y aquí os enseño solo unos cuantos.
This stunning Hotel is a renovated 15th century mansion, with a spa and peaceful and relaxing gardens and swimming pools. It has beautiful vineyards where lots of beautiful photos can be taken. Most of the times the ceremonies are held outside in the courtyard and you also have an impressive Oriental Room where you can have dinner (in case you need an inside option) or the dance. This place is situated only 20 mins from Palma in the southeast area.
This is a classic not to be missed. Not only the surroundings and scenery of Deià are breathtaking, but the Hotel is superb, the staff super friendly and the atmosphere very Mallorcan rustic chic. El Olivo Restaurant is one of the best on the island. The food is just superb! One of the times I was there I met one of the Gallagher brothers from Oasis at the pool, and another one it was Jamie Oliver. You only have to take a look at the guest book to realise all the A-list celebrities have stayed there: Gwyneth Paltrow, Tom Hanks, Diana of Wales…
Un clásico en el precioso pueblo de Deià , el Hotel La Residencia es sitio de refugio para celebrities asi que por que no elegirlo para tu boda?
Hotel Castell Son Claret, Capdellà
I only discovered this stunning Hotel last summer, when I photographed the beautiful wedding of Ivan and Nelli (planned by Jutta at Mallorca Hochzeiten) there. It is Mallorcan country chic at its best. An old castle renovated to the highest luxury standards. And the atmosphere is relaxed and friendly, you really feel the silence of the countryside in this place. What´s not to love!
Este precioso Hotel abrió sus puertas hace poco y me encanta su lujo refinado en el campo. No te lo puedes perder!
Hotel Ca´s Xorc, Sóller
A 5 mins drive from Soller towards Deia , right in the heart of the Soller valley, between olive groves and lemon trees, there is a little boutique Hotel called Ca´s Xorc. It is a refurbished 18th century estate full of Mallorcan charm and at the same time enjoying modern day luxury. The restaurant is excellent and the scenery relaxing and dreamlike. Simply delicious!
El Hotel Ca´s Xorc es simplemente delicioso, un Boutique Hotel precioso enclavado en las montañas de Soller, entre olivos y limoneros. Puro Mediterráneo.
This luxury Boutique Hotel in the outskirts of Pollensa town, is the perfect combination of modern decor and typical Mallorcan architecture. Outside it looks like an old Mallorcan house but inside it is very modern, with dark walls and interesting modern art. It really is very beautiful and I also love its vineyards, it is so photogenic! Their BBQs are perfect for relaxed weddings.
El Hotel Son Brull está en las afueras de Pollensa, en pleno campo, con propios viñedos. Es una magnífica combinación de aquitectura mallorquina y moderna decoración interior. Un lujo en el campo!
Hotel Hilton Sa Torre, Llucmajor
This gorgeous Hotel has something all the others do not have: a stunning church. This is especially convenient if you are getting married, as you do not need to move outside the hotel. Hilton Sa Torre has extensive grounds and it feels spacious and has a very chic country feel. Rustic but comfortable and luxurious. The windmill is ideal for cocktails too.
El Hotel Hilton Sa Torre me encanta porque aparte de su preciosa y lujosa decoracion, tiene en su propiedad una impresionante iglesia. Asi que es el sitio ideal para celebrar tu ceremonia. Luego el aperitivo junto al antiguo molino y la fiesta en la terraza del restaurante, todo un capricho!
Every time I drive up to the top of the hill to Hotel Son Net, I get this feeling of relaxation and wellbeing…seriously! It is luxurious and serene at the same time, the scenery is amazing and the tree house is also fantastic. You can celebrate your ceremony under an ancient tree and dance your night away at the superb restaurant dance floor. The bridal suite is beautiful, I have seen it! I also love the treehouse, check it out if you ever go there!
El Hotel Son Net en Puigpunyent es otro claro ejemplo de Boutique Hotel con refinada elegancia campestre. Me encanta su salón con chimenea para tomar el té, y sus vistas al valle son impresionantes. Por supuesto, para la ceremonia lo mejor es bajo el árbol centenario del jardín, todo un sueño hecho realidad.
Hotel Valldemossa, Valldemossa
This beautiful boutique Hotel is full of charm. The scenery is breathtaking, with the views over Valldemossa village. I have photographed many weddings there and the photos are always amazing. I love taking my couples for a walk around the village during my sessions. You can of course also celebrate your ceremony there as it has a very nice dedicated space by the pool. The restaurant is also excellent and the whole decor is very Mallorcan.
El Hotel Valldemossa es tan bonito como el pueblo, justo al lado y desde su restaurante puedes disfrutar sus maravillosas vistas. Este lujoso hotel tiene además un espacio dedicado para ceremonias y una preciosa piscina y terrazas maravillosas con una panorámica impresionante. Además me encanta caminar con los novios hasta el pueblo y terminar la sesión allí, nunca falla!
This small Hotel in Port Pollensa is ideal for an intimate wedding. The family running this Hotel bought the house back in 1905 together with all the land surrounding it, now being used for agricultural purposes. The first time I visited it I loved the interior decorations and the elegant atmosphere. It has lovely sea and country views and it has preserved its original Mallorcan feel. It also has a very pretty courtyard (ideal for ceremonies).
