Why get married in Gibraltar’s botanical gardens?

2020 is the year of getting back to nature and appreciating our wonderful, beautiful planet. So if 2020 is also the year you’re planning your big day, then what better way to embrace this passion than by hosting your Gibraltar wedding in the Alameda Botanical Gardens? Here are some reasons to consider it:

Shared passion

If you are you and your loved one have a shared passion for botany, nature and wildlife, then what could be more apt than choosing a botanical garden for your wedding? The Alameda boasts a rich display of plant species from across the world, including some that are only found here on the Rock, such as succulents and Mediterranean plants, as well as a Dragon Tree that is more than 200 years old. This helps make the botanic gardens a unique, beautiful and magical environment to commit to that special someone.

Supports the local environment

Gibraltar is home to rich flora and fauna, and hosting your wedding in the Alameda Botanical Gardens gives you access to all this and more. The gardens are home to the Alameda Wildlife Conservation Park which boasts cotton top tamarins, ring-tailed lemurs and Asian short-clawed otters amongst a wide range of birds, insects and reptiles. The wildlife park is the only one in Gibraltar and is renowned for its commitment to sustainability, so by hosting your wedding here you can do your bit for the local environment and the conservation of these endangered species.

Unique backdrop

Having your wedding photos taken amongst the rich and vibrant surrounds of the Alameda Botanical Garden will look visually stunning and provide a great memento of the day. With steps creating several levels and exotic plant species, you can ensure a diverse range of colours and scenery that can perfectly frame your wedding shots. What’s more, the botanical gardens can cater to your needs, from smaller parties hosted in The Lion’s Pond or Dell, to larger events better suited to the open-air theatre.
