Cartagena de Indias and the Sofitel Legend Santa Clara are quintessentially the most sought-after destinations in the international market to celebrate this important date for couples, their wedding.
To reach this point, the city and the hotel have been working permanently in the promotion of Cartagena, using various channels and international events, which have made it possible to display touristic attractions, the environments, the services, the experience offered by La Heroica and Sofitel Legend Santa Clara, which has a privileged place for this type of ceremonies.
On the other hand, international support has been of upmost importance to achieve objectives. Brides Magazine, one of the most respected and important publications in the wedding industry, recorded the Sofitel Legend Santa Clara in its latest edition with the wedding of Colombian national Valentina Hernández Botero and her partner George Dufournier, event that was widely described in the publication.
The article highlighted each one of the historic and romantic scenes, the travel experience, showing the wedding cake, the invitations, the flowers, the food, the party as unique moments in which they spent time with their friends and relatives. It was an honor for the hotel, motivating even more our staff to create legendary moments.
Since its opening in 1995, the hotel has been a leader in terms of weddings within the city, thanks to its potential in terms of service and experience offered to brides and grooms. Furthermore, the former Convent of the Clarisas enchants with its colonial and republican architecture, making every wedding celebration unique.
This leadership has precisely allowed the hotel to work hand by hand with many public and private entities of the city, to promote weddings as an important segment of the city’s market. As a matter of fact, the hotel has been carrying out a Wedding Forum for several years now. An event that, in its 10 plus years of existence, has intended to gather the industry to discuss, inform and share about the wedding industry.
Every year, Sofitel Legend Santa Clara invites experts and professionals of the industry from all around the world, so that they can provide tools that will keep them up-to-date on new business possibilities and trends for organizing destination weddings. These guests include decorators Mathieu Robinson and Luis Otoya; luxury destination expert, Jack Ezon; US wedding blogger Kellee Khalil and wedding planner Tatiana Byron, among others.
According to the opinion of experts in the field of weddings, it is an excellent business opportunity that is undergoing constant growth and development, because weddings bring into the city more revenues and investments than other items such as tourism, cuisine, crafts, bars and entertainment.
Weddings have become a form of art themselves and the hotel highly experienced Inspired Weddings team strive to make dream weddings come true.
Cartagena is one of the most sought-after national and international destination for brides.
