Is this the perfect wedding venue….?

Ruins of the foundry with la Concha in the distance

I’d initially been drawn to Finca la Concepcion by the hundreds of beautiful weddings that kept coming up on my social media feeds. It seems every floral, photography, catering, wedding planner, in fact every vendor in the area is working there at some point in the season, and they love to post about it.

Well I’m not surprised, the ruins of the foundry which was build in 1837 are the perfect backdrop to any big day. The ceremony can take place anywhere in the grounds but the most popular place seems to be at the foot of the foundry ruins, with la Concha mountain as your view.

Co-ordinator of events, Tamara Bastida, explained to me “There are three main areas. The foundry, which is mostly used as a setting for the ceremony but can also be turned around to host the wedding reception, the pool area which is mostly used for the cocktail hour, and the external grounds of the house with its beautiful pergola which makes a great welcoming area but can be adapted to any use.”

Of course all and any part of the grounds make the perfect setting for photographs, the scenery is so unique with its centenary palm trees and many exotic fruit and citrus trees.

The manor house entrance

The manor house, which is not accessible to guests due to still being lived in at certain times of the year, was once the entrance to a 19th century church and has a certain “grandeur”, in front the relaxing trickle of water from the pond and fountains.

Tamara then went on to say “We host many different weddings and on various different days of the week. The largest we have catered for so far is 1,500 guests. We can also supply marquee areas for the very few days in the year that the weather is not so sunny.”

This venue is both expansive and intimate in equal measures, its vastness can cope with the most ambitious wedding plans, but can also be perfect for even the most private gathering.
