What do rock stars and Hollywood stars have in common? They’ve all chosen the stunning scenery of Gibraltar as a backdrop to their weddings. In fact, Sean Connery loved it so much, he got married there twice! But regardless of whether you want to enjoy a celebrity vibe or tie the knot in a low key ceremony with friends, Gibraltar is the perfect location for your wedding.
The photo opportunities
Whatever the location you choose, the opportunities for sensational wedding photography are everywhere. From the lush tropical greenery of the Italianate Dell in the Botanical Gardens to the deck of a yacht in the middle of the sparkling Mediterranean, you’ll find the perfect backdrop. Or why not celebrate at the Mons Calpe Suite, perched 412 metres in the air atop the Rock itself? The views are exceptional and you can even have your wedding photos taken in a cable car.
The honeymoon destinations
Gibraltar is just a stone’s throw from glamorous Morocco, where you can fall under the spell of the Imperial cities of Marrakesh and Rabat or spend your honeymoon exploring the Sahara on camelback. Or step across the border into spectacular Andalusia, Spain’s southern gem with its incredible beaches, stunning mountain scenery and the incomparable splendour of the Alhambra Palace in Granada. Gibraltar itself is a magical honeymoon destination, with luxury hotels and boutique spas ideal for newlyweds.
The wedding culture
Gibraltarians love their weddings, with guest lists regularly topping the 200 mark and plenty of flamboyant Llanito customs including abundant food, wine and dressing to the nines. One custom that your stiletto wearing guests will adore is the tradition of giving flip-flops as wedding favours, while it’s difficult to resist the sheer love of life that you’ll find in dynamic Gibraltar. Just 2.5 hours from the UK, you’ll enjoy a mix of the Mediterranean and British culture where there are no language or monetary barriers, yet you’ll experience a wedding quite unlike any other.
