Why Gibraltar is the perfect summer wedding destination

Although it’s probably not the first destination which springs to mind, a Gibraltar wedding is the perfect wedding destination for this summer – After all, who doesn’t love a wedding in the sun?

When planning your dream day abroad, considering Gibraltar weddings could be the perfect opportunity, making your special day the best it can be.

Stunning scenery

One of the best parts of a wedding abroad is being able to capture the excitement and romance of the day. Luckily, Gibraltar has some pretty incredible scenery.

Sandy beaches, stunning coastline, and of course, the infamous Rock of Gibraltar. A striking limestone ridge, over 400m high, it towers above the surrounding sea. In other words, it’s the ideal backdrop for any wedding snaps, especially whilst basking under the Spanish sun.

Ease of travel

Travel to Gibraltar is easy, efficient, and affordable.

With direct flight time under three hours from the UK, weddings in Gibraltar don’t have to be unattainable. Book early to get the best deals, especially come summer where school holidays can mean prices are hiked up.

Fantastic weather

It goes without saying that the weather is almost certain to be stunning if you’re thinking about getting married in Gibraltar during the summer.

With temperatures soaring into the high 20s and 30s come June and July, a wedding in Gibraltar is a sure-fire way to be a hit with the guests (and make your day even more special, of course).

Excellent cuisine

Although situated near to Spain, Gibraltar is quite British in its ways of life, buildings, and its cuisine.

Infused with a delightful mix of Spanish and British flavours and techniques, the cuisine is sure to be a hit with guests, especially if you opt for tapas, which guests are sure to love. Make sure you sample the best of the Spanish wine, too.
