The basic steps of how to get married in Gibraltar

The British Overseas Territory of Gibraltar is an absolutely fascinating part of the world, with a unique combination of a ‘home from home’ feel and rather more exotic connotations. Where else, after all, could you expect to find both traditional British red telephone boxes and casually wandering Barbary macaque monkeys in one place?

These factors, combined with the likes of a pleasant Mediterranean climate, a similarly warm welcome and the iconic backdrop lent by the Rock itself, help to explain why so many people decide to get married in Gibraltar. After all, if it’s a good enough destination for the nuptials of John Lennon, Yoko Ono and Sir Sean Connery, it’s more than good enough for the rest of us!

However, there are still certain practical steps to follow if you wish to tie the knot in this intriguing and rewarding piece of UK soil. So, here are the key things that you need to do.

Make sure you meet the conditions

There’s little point in deciding to get hitched in Gibraltar if you aren’t able to meet the criteria for legally doing so here. Thankfully, compared to many other popular overseas destinations like Spain or France, Gibraltar’s requirements aren’t that hard to meet.

There are no residency restrictions to stop you from getting married here, for example, although you do have to stay overnight. However, when you consider how wonderful a holiday destination Gibraltar is, that’s surely an excuse to spend even longer here, before and after your wedding!
