Wedding

Hi, we are getting married in 2019 in Estepona. We will either be staying at Fuerte hotel Estepona or the h10 Estepona parlance still can’t decide which one. We will be getting married in the town and then going onto bronzzzano beach club. Just wondering if anyone knows of any nicer places to get our wedding pictures? We are bringing our photographer with us instead of having one from Spain. Also if anyone could recommend any nice restaurants/bars I would be grateful. Thanks

There are some amazing streets in the old town with lots of pots of flowers etc on the walls and some very beautiful little squares, or you could have the pictures taken in front of one of the many murals or sculptures around the town. Have a look in the top questions where there are some suggestions for interesting places to visit.

Also go to the Paseo Maritimo and have photos taken there with the pretty flowers. Do visit the Orchid Museum.

You're bringing your own photographer... I'm impressed.

There used to be several studios in Estepona, but they've all closed.

Reason... with modern phones taking high quality pictures everyone is a photographer and there is no work for them.

Bronzzzano had a very shaky start last year with incorrect licences and noise issues causing months of closure.

It has opened again but so far there is little footfall and how a restaurant can supply fresh food with a handful of diners daily is dubious, I anticipate much is frozen.

In my opinion you are very brave thinking this venue will ever be a success into 2019 as it must be losing money constantly which usually means quality suffers or closure/change of ownership. Consider a backup plan or hope this Russian/Spanish collaboration has deep pockets and can eventually turn Estepona into a community it does not wish or afford to be.

A wedding here - how lovely!

If you are able to visit Estepona for a week or even a weekend some time before the wedding, you could look around the centre and choose your spot. As other people have said, there are loads of lovely places. I would suggest one of the pretty squares. Here are a few to choose from. Look them up on Google Maps and walk round them all.

Pasaje de Felipe Campuzano https://goo.gl/XW6asm

Pasaje Maria Cintrano https://goo.gl/gXcw3X

Pasaje Da. Francisca Contreras https://goo.gl/Qya11M

Plaza Manuel Alcantara https://goo.gl/TrEXKB

Plaza Begines https://goo.gl/bGPj48

Pasaje Alicia Padierna https://goo.gl/PGy5bF

Plaza Juan Bazan https://goo.gl/fUuMAE

You will need to have a shortlist of 2 or 3, then do a recce the day before to check which one has the best flowers out at that moment.

Restaurants?

A really lovely place for a wedding meal would be in the outdoor patio of the Taberna Miguel. You would have to book up ages in advance for a large party.

You don't say which month it is that you are getting married - if it is not outdoors weather, then the very classy El Pescador with beautiful views, on the pedestrian seafront promenade, would be my choice. Again, book up well in advance.

Hope this is helpful (and that all my links work!)

Best wishes

The prices are ridiculous, the VIP area with beds originally at 900€ a day has only had people using it a couple of times. All prices have dropped but not enough, they seem to believe a town that came from farming and fishing has suddenly become a haven of the rich. It hasn’t.

Read posts on their own tripadvisor advert and you will deduce very easily that many are home grown 5* reviews.

Wrong place wrong target audience, too expensive and now the Senda Litoral path is more established it’s easy to walk to superior venues with less glitz and more substance.

Ah I see what you mean now. They thought it was going to be another very very upmarket place, and I agree Estepona is more basic.

I hope it turns out ok for the OP.

I walk past it most Sundays at about 12 midday.

I have yet to see it open, actually.
