If you’re getting married in Gibraltar, congratulations! You’ll need to follow some basic steps to get on the right track. While there are no residency requirements for getting married in Gibraltar, there are some things that you must do before tying the knot. In this article, we’ll go over what you need to do to get married in Gibraltar.
You must have British lineage and be old enough for marriage
To get married in Gibraltar you must be:
• Over 18 years old, or 16 years old if your parents give their consent and you are living with them in Gibraltar.
Register with a marriage officer
First, you must contact us by telephone or via email to make a provisional booking for your wedding. You will be required to bring along two witnesses who are eligible to marry (this means that they must be over 18 years old). Our packages do already include 2 witnesses just in case you are coming down by yourselves.
Once in Gibraltar, we will meet with you and the Registrar, and the Registrar will then take your details down and provide you with an affidavit form which both parties must sign separately at this stage.
Gather your relevant documents
When you get to Gibraltar, you’ll need to provide documents (passport and birth certificate if neither you or your partner have been married in the past). You’ll also need to bring an original copy of your divorce decree documents if previously married.
