There’s nowhere in the world quite like Gibraltar. Situated at the southern end of the Iberian Peninsula, this small but perfectly formed landmass occupies a distinctive position in Europe. Although geographically connected to Spain and less than 18 miles from North Africa as the crow flies, Gibraltar is a wholly British territory.
These three characteristics alone make Gibraltar a compelling place to visit – and tie the knot.
The Rock of Gibraltar makes for an incredible backdrop to any wedding, not just for the happy couple but friends and family, too. And there are so many fabulous locations to choose from.
The Gibraltar Registry Office in Secretary’s Lane, for instance, is just a hop skip and a jump from Gibraltar Bay. There are also many fine hotels where you can host your ceremony, including the 5-star Sunborn Hotel, which is home to the only 5-star ‘super-yacht’ hotel and offers a host of luxurious features, such as a casino, gym, spa and sense-defying infinity pool.
Alternatively, The Mons Calpe Suite is an elevated venue that supplies glorious views of the Rock and its environs and has been awarded the Best Wedding Venue in the Mediterranean accolade for 2015 and 2016 by Destination Weddings & Honeymoon Abroad Magazine.
You might like to choose The Waterfront Restaurant, which overlooks an exclusive marina at Cormorant Wharf and has played host to many a wedding.
Possibly the most unusual ceremony setting is St Michael’s Cave, one of many subterranean locations that run through the Rock. With its vast, strikingly lit caverns and impressive stalagmites and stalactites, this naturally created geological phenomenon will ensure that your nuptials are indelibly etched in the memories of all who attend.
We’ve only really scratched the surface when it comes to wedding possibilities in Gibraltar. And that’s without mentioning all the things you can do while you’re here. The Rock offers everything for the perfect wedding and honeymoon in one place, with warm weather, beaches, scuba diving, cable car rides, ascents to the summit, visits to Spain and North Africa and so much more.
