4 reasons you should hold your wedding in Gibraltar

Destination weddings have become increasingly popular in recent years, with many people now choosing to go abroad for their special day. Gibraltar is a popular tourist destination and is the ideal location for a destination wedding. So, why should you choose to have a Gibraltar wedding?

Easy to access

Gibraltar is quite an easy place to access, as most countries have flights to the territory daily. Cruise ships and ferries can also be taken to Gibraltar and you also have the option of driving across the Spain/Gibraltar border via car.

The official language is English

Due to Gibraltar being an overseas British territory, English is the official language. English is one of the most commonly spoken languages in the world, meaning that tourists from a variety of different backgrounds will find it easy to get around Gibraltar and understand the people living there. Destination weddings can sometimes be stressful, especially if there is a language barrier, so this will help to alleviate some of that stress.


British Sterling is the official currency of Gibraltar, with the official title of the currency used being the Gibraltar Pound. However, Euros are also accepted in many places across the peninsula. Whilst it is recommended that you take some sterling with you, travellers from the EU may be able to use their own currency in Gibraltar – this means that both British and European visitors will find currency exchange easy.

The climate

Gibraltar has a moderate climate all year round – the summers are warm and the winters are mild, so it’s likely that the weather will be nice if you decide to have a Gibraltar wedding, regardless of the time of year. This can make the peninsular particularly appealing to those wanting to have a wedding in Gibraltar outside of the summer months.
