The Romance of Marbella.

Whether you are planning to invite everyone you know or just your nearest and dearest in a small intimate wedding, you will be sure to find a suitable venue in Marbella. Only you know what will make your dreams come true.

The popular trend for DESTINATION WEDDINGS has made Marbella the top destination in the  Mediterranean.

Modern couples are choosing to combine their wedding with their honeymoon and invite family and friends for the ceremony and first week and then stay on or a further number of days or weeks to relax and unwind and get used to being Mr. & Mrs!

 

The Climate and Weather of Marbella

Marbella is located in southern Spain surrounded by the high Sierra Blanca Mountains and washed by the Mediterranean sea. Marbella sits on the coast and is sheltered by the  Mountains that stand majestically behind the town. The mountains shield and protect the town and offer a unique microclimate that boasts 320 sunshine filled days a year. Locals say it never rains in Marbella-well only in 32 days! With so many guaranteed sunny days it is ‘easy’ to plan and experience an outdoors Wedding Ceremony and Celebration. Everything about Marbella says sunshine and sea.

 

The People of Marbella

The people are friendly and welcoming and care greatly about making every visitor feel special. As a ‘Brit’ you will feel right at home in this ex-pat location, where many British people from all walks of life have settled and made it their permanent home.

 

The Scenery of Marbella

Marbella is one of the most exclusive and luxury destinations in southern Spain. Its beauty is unrivaled along the coast. Boasting 14 golf courses, 4 marina’s, luxury shopping malls and several 5star hotels. Marbella has 28 kilometers of sandy beaches lined with apartments, villas, hotels and golf links that come down to the shoreline. Marbella has the most beautiful landscapes in the whole of southern Spain. Its old town oozes all the old world charm of its Andalusia history and the picturesque building style is fresh and clean. The town boasts luxury, whether arriving by air, land or sale into one of its beautiful seaside marina’s.

It will be hard to resist the temptation of a Luxury Destination Wedding,

Couples will be spoilt for choice between the venues on offer.

 

The Religion of Marbella

The people of Marbella are generally practicing Catholics but all faiths and religions have places of worship in this cosmopolitan town. Most Spanish couples have a church marriage which is then followed by a Blessing Ceremony. A Blessing Ceremony in Spain is what we would call a Wedding Ceremony in England! However, a Blessing Ceremony tends to be quite brief.

 

When is the ideal time of year or day to have a Wedding Celebration in Marbella?

Marbella is hot during the summer months but cools during the Mediterranean winter months. Marbella’s climate is hot in the summer daytime and very warm into the evening. The temperature cools once the sun has dropped making evening celebrations very popular, and the norm. The midday and afternoon sun can be very hot…melting makeup and ruining hairdo’s! A cool mountain or sea breeze is most welcome in June, July and August. Most Spanish couples avoid celebrations during the afternoon, preferring a ceremony to start at 7pm.

English couples choosing to go to Marbella in the off-peak months when the weather in the UK is at its coldest, will be pleasantly surprised by the warmer days. It is unlikely to be warm enough for outdoor celebrations into the evening from Nov-March but a midday Ceremony on the beach or alfresco should be possible, taking the evening celebrations into a covered area.

Wedding Celebrations in Spain go on into the night and are often still going into the small hours with ‘free bars’ open all night!

 

Why celebrate your Wedding in Marbella?

Marbella is just a short flight from the UK, with all major airports offering flights throughout the week. The availability of flights means many more of a couples invited guests will be able to join them for their  Celebratory Wedding Ceremony.

Whether you are dreaming of a gala wedding reception, an intimate family affair, or a secluded honeymoon escape for just the two of you, you will find somewhere to suit your requirements.

 

Is it easy to legally marry in Marbella?

Marrying legally in Marbella does have its complications but it is possible if planned many months in advance. Application for a Marbella marriage license must be made by each couple at the Marbella Registry Office or City Hall. All relevant documents must be presented.

Contact the Wedding Department at the Marbella Town Hall for more information.<<mwd@marbella.es>>

OR

You can marry in the UK before leaving for your wedding celebration, in a simple registration office wedding. Once in Marbella, you can celebrate with a Wedding Ceremony.

OR

Gibraltar is just a short distance from Marbella and being British has the same marriage licensing laws as the UK. Marrying in Gibraltar will provide you with a UK Marriage Certificate if this is what you seek.

 

What venues are available for weddings in Marbella?

  • 5* Hotels
  • Country  Houses
  • Private Villa on coast or mountain
  • Beach resorts
  • Golf links or courses

The abundance of top-class hotels and villa is unparallel along the southern coast. The wide variety of accommodation on offer covers all types of preferences – golf, spar, beach, mountain and town. A vast majority of weddings take place on a beach or beside the water’s edge. Some of the more prestigious inland venues also have a beach club. These club areas are frequently taken over exclusively for the Wedding Celebration.  All beaches are public domains above the water line. No hotel has claim or ownership to any beach in Marbella.

The wedding department of the Marbella Town Hall can advise and offer support in applying for a beach licence.
