Would you love to celebrate your wedding somewhere sunny, exclusive and full of history? In 1837, in the middle of a beautiful nature spot and where now stands the Finca La Concepción, one of Spain’s first foundries was built, very close to the popular town of Marbella.
When production ceased at the factory, the land owner converted the ruins into one of the most spectacular farm houses on the Costa del Sol, a stunning place where special weddings are held. This venue and its history have inspired us to give you our top tips for a chic industrial style wedding at the Finca La Concepción.
1. Combine nature and elegance
Distinction is something that should be at the forefront of your big day, which is why you need to make the most of this venue’s incredible setting. How? By holding an outdoor wedding. In the Finca La Concepción you’ll have a variety of century-old gardens where you can declare your love in front of up to 1200 guests!
Your wedding day is incredibly important! Make the most of an exclusive venue that gives you the possibility of creating a unique event hidden away from everyday life. At the Finca La Concepción you’ll find a stunning stately home in the heart of the grounds and the ruins of the old foundry exclusively for you and your guests.
Have you given any thought to your wedding decor? If you’re considering a chic industrial style, we recommend using white flowers for your centrepieces, hanging lightbulbs and contrasting, opulent candelabra for a chic and elegant touch.
With the Finca La Concepción, there are no restrictions on wedding suppliers that you can use. They can recommend many they have worked with before that they think will work best for you, but if you already have specific suppliers in mind, they are happy to take a back seat as they believe that your day should be created your way.
4. Flowers everywhere
For your ceremony, why not choose flowers that will set the tone for the rest of your decor. We think white flowers are the perfect neutral tone for a chic industrial look. They can be placed on the benches and backs of chairs, you can scatter petals on the carpet, or get your bridesmaids to carry classic white roses that match the bridal bouquet.
5. A unique reception
“We can plan or help develop any idea that the couple want and when it comes to catering, although we do have specific menus, we can happily create new menus tailored to the couple’s budget and tastes”, explain the team at Finca La Concepción. Your wedding day is one of the most important days of your life, which is why every last detail needs to be perfect.
6. Different areas
What do you think about using different areas of the venue for your event? The layout of this venue allows you to create different settings and environments for your guests to enjoy. A designated welcome drink area, a sit down area for your wedding breakfast/buffet, a chill out zone for tired feet and a fantastic dancefloor for your party. The venue is exclusively yours so you can set it out as you wish!
7. A delicious dessert table
If you want to treat your guests with something tasty after dinner then a sweet table is a must! Kids and grownups alike will be able to enjoy whatever delicious treats you have on display for them, and if it’s near the dance floor, even better!
8. Photographs with a chic industrial feel
The fact that you are having your wedding in an old factory, will provide all the atmosphere and backgrounds you need for this type of style. The unique history of this venue will stand out in all of your photos. At the Finca La Concepción, the front fascia of the house was once the entrance to an old chapel constructed over 200 years ago, so if it’s history and a unique setting you want for your wedding photos, then you’re at the right place!
Each couple is different, and this is something they understand at the Finca La Concepción. They’ll be respectful of your wishes and help you design your special day just as you’ve always dreamed, offering you high quality products and impeccable service to ensure that your day is perfect.
