What might our intimate wedding stay look like at Marine Villa?


Antonia and David’s aim is to make your wedding stay as relaxed and comfortable as possible. Luxury in absolute privacy is their mantra. They can provide a delicious meal ready to pop in the oven for you and any guests to enjoy on your evening of arrival. You may also wish to complete your “unwind” by booking spa services that can be provided at your accommodation. It’s the perfect way to ensure a magical zen-like feeling ahead of your seaside wedding day.

On your wedding morning you can enjoy a breakfast box. You can ask us to arrange a hairdresser and a make-up artist if you’d like to come to your accommodation ahead of your wedding ceremony. If you’d like to have some flowers to adorn your day we can recommend a florist to provide your choice of bouquets, buttonholes and decorative flowers. If you want to ensure all the wonderful memories of your day are capture beautifully for prosperity, we work with a great local photographer who we can put you in touch with. We’ll work with you to ensure your wedding day food is exactly as you wish. You can choose a three or four-course meal and/or canapes. If you’d prefer we can recommend great local restaurant dining options too.
