Weddings in Gibraltar

If you'd like to have a wedding abroad, but would also like to get married easily, then Gibraltar is a good choice. It's simple to marry here, the paperwork is in English so no translations required, and it's actually quicker to marry here than it is in the UK!

Located at the southern tip of Spain, overlooking Morocco, Gibraltar is the UK in the sun. With year-round sunshine and warm weather, its famous Rock dominates the territory (you can actually get married on top of the Rock, which gives you a spectacular view over the sea to Africa), with plenty of the equally famous Barbary Apes roaming around at the top.

Popular locations in Gibraltar to get married include the Botanical Gardens and, for a simple ceremony, the Registry Office. Famous couples who got married here include Sean Connery (twice), Roger Moore, and John Lennon and Yoko Ono.

2. Top of the Rock

With a spectacular view over the Straight of Gibraltar to Africa, getting married in the Mons Calpe Suite on the top of the rock is a classic option for a wedding in Gibraltar.

This is a truly elegant venue for your wedding and reception, and you can even take a cable car ride to get there - what a way to arrive at your wedding!

The venue has space for 60 guests, so it's ideal for intimate weddings, and as the weather is generally good, you'll have an amazing backdrop for your wedding photos

3. St Michael's Cave

This truly unique wedding location is high above sea level in one of the largest caves in the local nature reserve. It's ideal if you'd like to get married somewhere completely different and wow your guests with a ceremony underground!

The Cathedral Cave, where you will marry, is also an auditorium and has held plenty of concerts and light shows over the years.

After getting married in the cave you can also hold your wedding reception there and party until the small hours surrounded by incredible rock formations lit by multi-coloured lights.

4. Beach Hotel Wedding

A beach wedding is a dream for many couples wishing to get married abroad, but not every country can offer such a ceremony. Luckily Gibraltar can at the Caleta Hotel, which has direct access to the beach.

You can marry on one of the terraces overlooking the beach and sparkling sea, and then have your reception there too. It's the perfect beach wedding as there's no need to get sand between your toes (unless you want to!).

5. Registry Office

The Registry Office is ideal for a simple wedding ceremony, and many celebrities have married here in the past, so you'll be following in famous footsteps.

Located in the Old Town, the Registry Office can only hold 20 people so it's ideal for small ceremonies.

It's also only open Monday to Friday, so if you're flying in for a weekend wedding you'll have to make it a long weekend or choose a different venue!
