Genevieve & Marcel


6th October 2022

Our Story

Genevieve and Marcel met in the summer of 2018. True to form, Marcel was late, Genevieve ordered prosecco. 

Much later, Marcel’s proposal, while pandemic proof, was not in the exotic location he had in mind. In fact, it was in the bedroom which almost overlooks the entrance to the Rotherhithe Tunnel. On Christmas Day morning, as Gen was applying her make up for another day indoors, Marcel tentatively wandered in, dressed in an ill-fitting tux. 

A ring was presented, (the wrong way round), Genevieve was in a rare event speechless and, fortunately as she said yes, that brings us here.  

We’re so excited for you to join us as we say “I do” and all that stuff, at our Andalusian wedding on Thursday October 6 2022. 

See you soon for fiesta time! 

Wedding Ceremony & Reception

Hotel Cortijo Bravo

Welcome to our celebration in sunny Malaga, Spain, Thursday  6th October 2022 – 6 PM

Dress code: Wedding attire!

Everything will be at one venue; handy, right? The ceremony starts at Cortijo Bravo at 6pm. Then, after bubbles and canapés, and a three-course meal on the Cortijo terrace, the fiesta can begin.

We’ve laid on a free bar from the point of canapés until the end; when the last man, woman, or child has reached a stage where decorum, awareness and general self-esteem is lost entirely to inebriation. We can’t wait!
We’re sorry we couldn’t invite everyone’s children along to the wedding, beyond immediate family, but given the above, that might be best for all.
We’re taking song requests* to be played at the party, please add yours to this spotify playlist:

*For the sake of humanity, any requests for Queen, Boney M, Ed Sheeran, Abba or any boybands have a significantly lower chance of making it to the final playlist.


Hotel Cortijo Bravo 

Location : To go direct to Cortijo Bravo from Malaga city centre, will take around 30 mins by taxi.

Address: Ctra. Velez-Malaga a, Km 1.5, 29700 Benamocarra, Málaga, Spain

Helpful Information


The wedding venue is in a fairly quiet area, so there are very few hotel options immediately close by, but there are loads of good hotels and Airbnb options within a 20 to 30-minute taxi/Uber ride.

The closest hotel to the venue that we’ve been to, which we really like, is Hola La Viñuela & Spa. Some photos here to give you a general idea and link below. This is about a 10-minute taxi/Uber from the venue – Cortijo Bravo.

We are also looking at providing a bus for guests from Viñuela to the venue, (and back again), so we will keep you posted here.

Torre del mar & Malaga

If there are no rooms available at Viñuela Hotel, or you’d prefer to stay somewhere else, there are two main options for accommodation – Torre del Mar and Malaga. 

One option could be to stay at Torre Del Mar, (as it’s closer to the wedding venue – Cortijo Bravo), for one or two nights, then Malaga afterwards because Malaga has a lot more to offer. If you don’t mind the 30-odd min journey to the wedding venue then Malaga offers a great place for a city break for your whole stay.

We’re also looking at reserving an area for drinks for all guests who’d like to come, at Vinñela, on the night before the wedding on the Wednesday, but we’ll keep everyone posted here on that too.

There are loads of good hotels and Airbnb options in Malaga city itself, though this is about a 30/35 minute taxi ride from the venue. There’s a metric ton of restaurants there, and tapas bars to wander between, pretty much all within a short walking distance. Also worth a walk up to El Parador and Gibralfaro for views of the harbour and city.

The seaside town of Torre Del Mar is nearer to the wedding venue, Cortijo Bravo, being about 15/20 minutes away, but we thought Airbnb places would be preferable there. There are fewer accommodation options in Torre del Mar, compared with Malaga, but here are a couple of hotels in Torre Del Mar suggested by our wedding planner.

Transfer for Guests

We’re looking at providing transfers for guests to the venue from a nearby hotel, Viñuela, and local areas but we’ll keep you posted here.

To go direct to the venue, Cortijo Bravo, from Malaga city centre, will take around 30 mins by taxi.


Without all of our favourite people our big day wouldn’t be the same.

So we really hope you can make it to our wedding in sunny Spain!

We can't wait to celebrate with you

Your presence is enough to make the wedding day special and we know Malaga is far from home. We are not expecting any gifts from any guests; there’s only a honeymoon fund for small contributions, for which we’d be forever grateful!
