Summary of Cotten Beach Club Wedding Venue
Cotten Beach Club is a restaurant that is made up of three areas that all link together to create an intimate venue.
The first area that you reach on arriving at Cotton Beach Club is the indoor space which hosts a large wooden chill-out table with sofas and several tables on the lower level. In the same room, but up just one step is the indoor dance floor, DJ booth and bar.
If you step outside through the glass doors, you find yourself on the balcony and this is the main eating space and restaurant.
All of the tables have incredible sea views and with white furniture and decor, the overall feel is of peacefulness, tranquility, luxury and calm.
The balcony also has a DJ booth and a small stage that is appropriate for live musicians.
If you walk along the balcony to the right, you reach a terrace with bench seating on multiple levels.
This is the perfect place to enjoy a specially crafted cocktail and watch the sun set.
Cotton Beach Club is wheelchair and buggy friendly, although with most clifftop venues, expect the ramps to be quite steep!
Weddings at Cotton Beach Club
Cotton Beach Club is a restaurant and when you hire the venue for your wedding, you get exclusive use.
The venue hire fee includes all of the furniture you need for your wedding (white chairs, tables, table cloths, an arch for your ceremony, cutlery, etc) and a wedding planner (Camilla) to help you in the run up to your wedding and to run the logistics on the day.
You then need to choose your food and drinks options for your wedding. All catering is provided by Cotton Beach Club, and the food is one of the main reasons that couples choose this venue for their wedding – it is out of this world!
You will also need to hire two sound systems from Cotton Beach Club (one for inside and one for outside).
All other suppliers (florists, DJ, musicians, etc) will then need to be booked by yourself.
Carmilla has a list of suppliers that she trusts and works with on a regular basis and she can help you with this.
Cotton Beach Club has a really good license for music and you can have a party that runs until 1.30am as part of the standard package.
It is also possible to extend the package until 2.30am.
This is super rare in Ibiza and another reason that Cotton Beach Club is so popular for weddings is that it can host a party with DJ and live musicians late into the night.
When you hire Cotton Beach Club, it is for the evening.
The restaurant will run a normal lunch service to the public and then it will close in the afternoon and transform into a wedding venue in approx 1-2 hours.
For this reason, it is super important that all wedding suppliers are familiar with the venue and are able to complete their set up in a short time window.
In the run up to your wedding, a food tasting at Cotten Beach Club is included and this will really help you to handpick the perfect menu for your wedding day.
It is also an excuse to come and visit the venue and really enjoy yourselves during the planning stages of your wedding.
You are welcome to hire a wedding planner, but it is not necessary at Cotton Beach Club as you get one included in your venue hire package.
Wedding Ceremony at Cotten Beach Club
Your guests will start arriving for your wedding ceremony at 6pm to give them half an hour to greet each other and enjoy the view before the ceremony begins at 6.30pm.
The wedding ceremony takes place on the balcony with an aisle down the centre and chairs set up either side.
This gives all of your guests a perfect view of you when you say your vows and they also get to enjoy the amazing views of the Mediterranean Sea.
For your wedding ceremony, you can hire Ibiza wedding pianist and DJ James to play his white grand piano as your guests arrive and for your entrance walk and any romantic moments of your ceremony that would work well with music.
Wedding Reception at Cotten Beach Club Ibiza
After your ceremony, you will move through the white curtain and along the balcony onto the terrace for your drinks reception.
Most weddings at Cotton Beach Club have an open bar and you and your guests can enjoy the finest drinks and conversation in this beautiful setting.
The views to the sea make for wonderful photo opportunities and this is a great time to get beautiful photos with your friends and family.
During your drinks reception the team at Cotten Beach Club will transform the ceremony area into a dining area for your meal.
You will then all be invited inside to look at the table plan before taking your seats on the balcony for your meal.
The balcony can seat 80 guests for a sit down meal and all food packages at Cotten Beach Club include a 4 course meal for your wedding breakfast.
Table wine and drinks are booked per person and are “endless” so you don’t have to worry about running out of drinks.
Your meal will take place between 8pm-10.30pm and will be followed by speeches, the cutting of your wedding cake and your first dance.
Dancing and Party at Cotton Beach Club
The evening celebrations take place in two parts – the outside dancing which starts with your first dance and goes on until midnight and then the inside dancing which starts at midnight and runs until 1.30am / 2.30am (depending on how long you have hired the venue for).
In Ibiza, there are super strict rules on music outside and all venues must stop playing music outside at midnight.
This rule applies to all venues with an entertainment license and the police are very strict on enforcing these regulations.
Cotton Beach Club has a unique set up that allows dancing outside until midnight and then more dancing inside after midnight.
This is the best wedding venue in Ibiza for a late night party and celebration.
NOTE: Even if you hire an external DJ or band, it is compulsory to hire the sound system from Cotton Beach Club.
This sound system includes two separate DJ systems and speakers – a more discrete sound system for outside and a powerful sound system for inside.
The sound system includes a sound guy and it is their responsibility to make sure that the strict sound regulations are met and maintained.
The team at Cotton Beach Club know how important it is to have an unforgettable party and they actively encourage you to hire saxophone players, bongo players, etc to join our DJ so that you have the biggest and best celebration of your life…ever!
Ibiza wedding DJ James works alongside the best saxophonists, percussionists, bongo players and live musicians in Europe and you can hire these as party of your Ibiza wedding DJ music package.
Cotton Beach Club is painted white throughout, and it can look really amazing to hire wireless uplighters to light the white pillars around the venue for a magical evening transformation.
During the evening party, an open bar will be offered to your guests so that they can really get into the mood of an incredible wedding party!
As part of your contract with Cotton Beach Club, you will need to arrange transport for your guests at the end of your wedding.
If you have booked the venue until 1.30am then you will need to arrange transport to arrive at 1.45am to collect your guests.
The reason for this is because Cala Tarida is a remote location and if it is not organised in advance then a taxi or minibus could take 2-3 hours to arrive at that time of night.
