Don’t want a big fuss? Gibraltar’s perfect for a low-key wedding

We’ll let you into a little secret: even as a company that specialises in organising weddings, here at Sweet Gibraltar Weddings, we sometimes find certain aspects of the wedding planning industry to be a bit of a circus. There are just so many services out there related to wedding planning, and it can be so easy for even the most well-meaning couples to feel overwhelmed by it all.

Certainly, the booming commercialisation of the wedding planning industry in recent years hasn’t been to everyone’s taste. It’s almost as if you have to have a really grand wedding, and that if you instead just want an intimate and fuss-free celebration of you and your beloved tying the knot, you’re somehow doing something wrong.

Well, we certainly don’t believe that! Furthermore, we don’t just think Gibraltar is the ideal place for a low-key wedding – we know it is, for the following reasons…

It’s small, but perfectly formed

Gibraltar is a tiny British Overseas Territory that measures just 6.7 square kilometres, or 2.6 square miles. And yet, Gibraltar is also so many things – historically fascinating, multicultural, rich with flora and fauna… and replete with inspiring and even jaw-dropping backdrops.

If, then, you wish to signal to your prospective guests and the wider world that your wedding doesn’t have to take place in a literal palace to be just as special as everyone else’s, you could scarcely make a better choice than Gibraltar.

You could just do it all in the Registry Office, if you like!

Weddings don’t come much more unfussy than those that take place in the Registry Office. But at the same time, Gibraltar’s Registry Office isn’t just any registry office.

With its low-key location in a narrow lane off Main Street, as well as its fresh cream paintwork, bridal white drapes and crystal chandelier, the Gibraltar Registry Office has that feel of somewhere special, but hidden.

Plus, when you get married here, you’ll be tying the knot like a celebrity, the likes of John Lennon, Yoko Ono, Sean Connery and Roger Moore having all formalised their unions at this venue.

It’s a budget-friendly wedding destination, too!

As a corner of the UK overseas, Gibraltar has that reassuring ‘home from home’ feel – but something else reassuring about getting married here, is the price.

You can tie the knot here from as little as £210, in fact, which isn’t a bad amount to pay for a sunny destination wedding that will leave you and your beloved with fond memories for years and even decades to come. Oh, and your marriage certificates will be recognised globally.

Another thing that can be refreshingly simple and low-key about a Gibraltar wedding is the process of actually organising one. Get in touch with the Sweet Gibraltar Weddings team today, and we’ll handle all of the essential elements of how to get married in Gibraltar on your behalf.

That, in turn, will free up you and your sweetheart to focus on the more glamorous and exciting aspects of your special day, no matter how extravagant or understated it ultimately ends up being.
