Hangover chill

 

On June 23 2013 - one month after we first met on a buzzing Copenhagen night out - Oliver uttered the words "I want to be yours" to Elin. Exactly five years of travel and adventure later - on June 23 2018 - we are getting married in dreamy Andalucía, Spain. We are beyond excited to share this special day with you, and grateful that you are willing to travel so far to be a part of our journey!

More details will follow, for now please read on for information on where to stay and where to travel, so you can book your trip.

Accommodation Options

Our wedding will be held at the secluded Spanish villa Casa del Rio, 1.5 km from the whitewashed, Moorish mountain village of Benahávis where lovely accommodation options await you. While there are many villages within reach, Benahavís is by far the closest to the wedding. Additionally, Benahavís is known as the “dining room” of Costa del Sol for its excellent regional food, and it's located only 15 minutes drive from the coast. Please see our recommended hotel as well as other options below.
