The wedding will take place in Villanueva de la Cañada, Madrid, Spain.
It's a small village outside of Madrid, Spain.
On July 7th, 2018.
You can find accommodation at any hotel in Madrid center. We will have a free bus for the attendees to take to and from Madrid center.
Another viable option is to find accommodation along the 10 (dark blue) metro line, as that metro line provides easy access to Madrid center, and the town of Boadilla del Monte (our town). There are some cheaper accommodations outside the city center that are along line 10.
The metro stops running at 1am however, so it would be unlikely you can take it back from the wedding.
The wedding will take place during the evening and nighttime. Average temperatures between 35 and 40 degrees celsius.
Cocktail hour. Ceremony. Appetizers. Dinner. Dancing & Drinking. Appetizers. Dancing & Drinking. In that order!
Below are photos of the venue. It is partially outdoors, and partially indoors. For those with high heels, we will provide heel covers in various sizes to prevent the heel from getting caught in the grass.
