Getting married in Gibraltar? Why choose Gibraltar for your destination wedding?

Getting married in Gibraltar is a popular choice for many couples and for good reason. Gibraltar is a British Overseas Territory located on the southern coast of Spain, and it offers a unique blend of British and Mediterranean culture. Here are some reasons why as a Gibraltar wedding photographer, I think getting married in Gibraltar might be the perfect choice for you:

1. Easy and straightforward process

Getting married in Gibraltar is a relatively easy and straightforward process. The Gibraltar Marriage Registry is open Monday to Friday, and you can book an appointment online or by phone. The process usually takes around 24 hours, and you will need to provide some basic documentation, such as your passports and birth certificates.

This is also a good time to book your Gibraltar wedding photographer, once you have your marriage date.

2. Beautiful location

Gibraltar is a stunning location for a wedding, with its beautiful beaches, historic landmarks, and stunning views of the Mediterranean Sea. You can choose to get married in one of the many beautiful venues in Gibraltar, such as the Alameda Gardens, the Rock Hotel, or the Sunborn Yacht Hotel.

All the wedding locations in Gibraltar are great for your wedding photography, but my 2 top favourites are the Top of the Rock for stunning 360 degree views over to Spain and across to North Africa. And The Dell at the Alameda Gardens, Gibraltars historical botanical gardens.

Getting married in Gibraltar is also an affordable option, especially compared to other popular wedding destinations. The cost of the marriage license is around £100, and you can choose from a range of affordable wedding packages offered by local wedding planners and venues.

4. Legal recognition

Getting married in Gibraltar is legally recognized in most countries, including the UK and the US. This means that you won't need to go through any additional legal processes when you return home, making it a hassle-free option for many couples.
