Ceremony – Parròquia de Sant Bartomeu i Santa Tecla at 5:00pmGoogle Map
The Church of Saint Barthlomew and Saint Tecla is Sitges’s most instantly recognizable landmark, thanks in part to its dramatic location overlooking the Mediterranean sea. Visible all along the Passeig Maritim, locals refer to it simply as ‘La Punta’ or ‘The Point’. Although a church has existed on the same site since medieval times, the present building was constructed relatively recently in the 17th century. It retains two Gothic tombs from its previous incarnation and boasts an impressive organ and Renaissance-era altarpiece.
* The ceremony will begin PROMPTLY at 5:00 p.m. Please be on time — no Filipino time! 🙂
* Following the ceremony, shuttles to Casa Felix will depart from outside Hotel Calipolis (a 10-15 min. walk along the beach promenade). Shuttles from Casa Felix back to Sitges will depart at 12:30 a.m. and 3:00 a.m.
The Reception – Casa Felix at 7:00pmCamino Can Camps 08818 Olivella Barcelona, Spain
Casa Felix is a magnificently restored country house dating back to the 11th century. The villa is surrounded by vineyards and olive groves, and the stunning blue infinity pool and its spacious terrace offer panoramic views across the landscape. The villa also has two contemporary kitchens and is equipped with three flat screen TVs, a cinema room with a projector and surround sound, and plenty of games, including snooker, foosball, table tennis, and a PlayStation.
* Dress code: Semi-formal (Translation: Look nice, but dress for comfort. It will be HOT and the sun does not set until almost 10pm!)
* Casa Felix is an expansive estate, with gardens and grassy areas throughout the property. Sitges also has cobblestone streets, and the walk from church to the shuttle pick-up area is about 10-15 minutes along the beach promenade. Please choose your footwear accordingly! Also, remember to bring your bathing suits, as we hope to end the party in the pool!
* The Spanish operate on a different daily schedule than we do in the United States. Many stores are closed during siesta hours — generally between 1:00-4:00 p.m. — and dinner is often not served until 9:30 p.m. Weddings also last until dawn! So, when in Spain, siesta to ensure that you can celebrate with us in true Spanish fashion, by partying until the sun rises! (Besides, it’s good for you.)
