Gibraltar is a truly magical place for a wedding. From stunning sandy beaches to the peak of the Rock, the backdrops are exceptional and cry out for a theme to match. If you haven’t decided on the theme for your Gibraltar wedding, here are three to consider.
A Frida Kahlo wedding
Venue: the Botanical Gardens
Frida Kahlo’s style never dates – think gorgeous rich pinks, reds and oranges and of course her famous flower crowns. There’s a definite crossover with boho wedding style, of course, so be inspired by the lush backdrops offered by the Botanical Gardens.
This theme is all about the use of colour – a pair of bright pink heels for her, matching orange tie and socks for him – to bring a pop to traditional Gibraltar wedding style. And that flower crown could be as simple as deep red roses tucked into a casual up do for ultimate in relaxed chic.
A James Bond theme
Venue: Mons Calpe suite
The venue is the ultimate in drama, perched at 412m atop the Rock itself and accessed by a cable car – remember those iconic scenes in Moonraker? This is a quick and easy theme to pull off, with plenty of style. Keep the colour palette monochromatic – think Bond’s iconic tuxedo – with accents of luxurious gold.
As a theme, a Bond wedding in Gibraltar should be all about style and elegance. Make the dress code glamour and tuxedos, dress the bridesmaids in sassy cocktail frocks and don’t forget the martinis – shaken not stirred, of course! Then let the stunning backdrop do the rest.
Game of Thrones fantasy theme
Venue: St Michael’s Caves
Are St Michael’s Caves the ultimate venue for a fantasy themed wedding? From the stunning stalactite formations to the incredible light-filled dance floor, the caves are completely magical and will add an otherworldly edge to your Gibraltar wedding celebrations.
Think fake furs, ivy and flickering candles – swords and direwolves are optional, but cloaks would be stunning! This theme is all about the details so exchange Stark inspired rings, carry golden roses for the house Tyrell and dress bridesmaids in red velvet for the Lannisters.
