The nearest town is Arriondas, and is probably the most convenient place for guests to stay. Buses to the venue will leave from Arriondas and will return there afterwards.

We know a number of our friends and relatives are keen amateur
photographers, and we’re hoping to take advantage of this by encouraging guests to take as many photos as possible on the day and to share them with us afterwards. So don’t forget your cameras! We’ll provide details of where to upload your photos in due course.
We appreciate the effort and expense that you will be going to in order to share our special day with us. For that reason, we really do not expect anybody to buy us a gift. However, if you would like to do so, there are couple of ways in which you can purchase a gift:
John Lewis Gift List: www.johnlewisgiftlist.com
Gift List number: 489396
Honeymoon Gift List: www.audleytravel.com/honeymoon/account
Account No.: MEG96659HM
Both lists will be accessible from the 21st July 2012.
Although we love children, we want all of our guests to be able to relax fully and enjoy the day. Therefore, we would respectfully ask that our wedding day be for adults only, with the exception of family members.
