Why does Gibraltar attract so many couples?

Imagine saying “yes” in an exotic, sunny and disconcertingly simple setting: welcome to Gibraltar ! Geographically located in the far south of Spain but under the British flag, Gibraltar combines the best of both worlds. Since the famous marriages of Sean Connery and John Lennon in the 1960s, this small territory has acquired a reputation reinforced by administrative procedures reduced to their strict minimum.

All you have to do is spend a night there and fill out a few forms to unite your destiny with your soul mate. No wonder that almost 90% of marriages registered on the Rock concern non-residents!

From celebrities to anonymous

Iconic figures like Sean Connery And John Lennon chose Gibraltar for their nuptials, highlighting this idyllic destination. But don’t worry, you don’t have to be a celebrity to experience a fairy tale here. Many couples from all walks of life come to unite in this paradise.

This is the case of Laetitia and Steve, a Belgian couple who opted for Gibraltar to escape the grayness of their country. Their testimony is eloquent: “We wanted to get married in Spain, but we abandoned the idea because for that, we had to live in the country for at least two years. Gibraltar was a much simpler alternative“.

Simplified and globally recognized procedures

Getting married in Gibraltar is child’s play compared to other destinations. You just need to spend one night in the territory and provide a few documents to obtain your internationally recognized marriage certificate. In no time and without any hassle, you will be able to register your union in France or elsewhere in Europe a few weeks after your marriage.

To top it off, marriage for all is recognized, making it an inclusive and welcoming destination.

Tailor-made services for all budgets

The cost of living in Gibraltar being relatively affordable, the prices for organizing a wedding are also attractive. Many local agencies like Jeanette Obytz and Medweddings Team Or Sweet Gibraltar Wedding offer tailor-made ceremonies, even for small groups.

  • Direct flights from several European cities such as Dublin Or Manchester

For those looking for a European alternative to the express wedding of Las Vegas, Gibraltar therefore presents itself as a dream option.

The “Married at First Sight” effect

The reality show Married at first sight has made an impression by organizing weddings on Gibraltarian soil for three seasons. This media showcase has inherited the “buzz” effect, attracting more and more French and European couples who wish to live this unique experience.

Brigitte D. from the Jeanette Obytz agency testifies: “ There was clearly a spike in requests after the show aired “.
