What makes the Alameda an ideal Gibraltar wedding venue?

Gibraltar has a moderate temperature and stunning views, making it an ideal destination for those seeking an outdoor wedding under the sun. The Overseas British Territory has many exciting settings for a wedding, from the decks of luxury yachts to the top of The Rock itself. However, those looking for a leafier location full of natural wonder should consider the Alameda.

The world-famous Botanical Gardens of Gibraltar was first opened in 1816 and has much to offer. From the lush green of its plant life to the vibrant colours of its native flowers, the Alameda is an inspiring wedding venue to look upon and its natural wildlife allows a wide range of bird species to serenade the happy couple like kingfishers, kestrels and white wagtails.

Picture perfect weddings

From the ceremony itself to the wedding photography before and afterwards, the Alameda offers an unrivalled location. Home to Hibiscus, Bougainvillea, meadow daisies and other flowers, Gibraltar’s celebrated Botanical Gardens provide a stunning backdrop that makes for unique memories and mementoes. Nestled among the Island palms, silk oaks, stone pine and wild olive trees, couples can tie the knot in a tranquil and enchanting environment that provides premier privacy.

Secret garden ceremonies

Deep in the verdant beauty of the Botanical Gardens, The Dell makes an ideal spot for a secluded wedding. A picturesque Italian garden, The Dell offers a romantic setting for an intimate ceremony amidst tropical flowers and plants.

Situated across the bridge, this secret garden allows a bride and groom to enjoy up to 25 guests at their wedding. However, additional wedding guests can also be present on the bridge itself. A wedding can be held in The Dell between April and October, and between November and March, ceremonies can take place beneath a Bandstand.
