Essentials for an outdoor wedding in Gibraltar

Getting married in Gibraltar means you can make the most of the incredible scenery and breathtaking landscapes. Tying the knot outside, however, does present some challenges. But if you prepare in advance and know what to expect, planning your outdoor wedding in Gibraltar will be a breeze. Especially with this helpful guide we have created for you!


Weddings in Gibraltar are blessed with a lot of sunshine, so it is important to be prepared for the hot weather. Air conditioning units and portable fans are an absolute must on the warmer days, as well as plenty of water and refreshments. Make sure you position your wedding cake away from the sun to avoid any melting icing puddles! Parasols may also be a good idea for the comfort of your guests.


Toilet breaks may not be the first thing you think of when planning your Gibraltar wedding, but you need to make sure your outdoor wedding provides facilities for guests. If there is no indoor venue close by, you may need to hire outdoor toilets. You can even hire luxury portable restrooms for that extra bit of elegance!


A wedding in Gibraltar is incomplete without music, lighting and of course catering! If you’re getting married outside, however, you will need to think about renting generators to supply your power. Whilst the sunlight will provide a gorgeous glow on your big day, you won’t want to be in complete darkness come the evening.


It may seem obvious but it can be easy to forget furniture for your outdoor wedding in Gibraltar. Seating, lighting and tables will need to be hired out, and possibly even catering equipment, cutlery and dishware. Vendors will be able to help you choose exactly what you want and caterers can advise you on what facilities they may need.
