HEY, I'M EVÓRA!
Reasons to get married in Spain
So this is obviously one of the top reasons, especially if you are from a country where it rains a lot. The guaranteed sunshine is definitely a reason to celebrate your wedding in Spain. It means you can plan an outdoor wedding or evening wedding without having to worry about it raining or your guests getting cold. I had a lovely evening wedding in August and the temperature was perfect for my guests!
I love outdoor weddings and Spain has it all when it comes to beautiful landscapes, you can choose to say your vows on a beach at sunset, on a mountain, in the woods, on a field, by a lake…Here in Cadiz there really is a wealth of natural beauty to choose from. It’s common to have a pre or post wedding photo shoot here, we chose to have ours up in the mountains.
Food and drink
Are you a foodie? Spain has a world recognised cuisine and some of the best chefs out there. The quality of the fresh food and elaborate dishes here is surprisingly cheap and of course Spain has amazing wine too. I love the local wines here in Cadiz such as Barbazul and Tierrablanca.
People and culture
I’ve lived in different countries and travelled the world, but nowhere have I felt so welcomed everywhere I go as I do here in Spain. People are generally smiley and are happy to help you if you need assistance. Spain is also an extremely child friendly country and children are welcomed into restaurants and can run around and play whilst you enjoy your food! Spain has a beautiful culture, click here to read how you can add some Spanish touches to your wedding.
Getting married in Spain has become very popular so there are lots of great English speaking suppliers to choose from. Lots of hotels offer wedding planning packages or you can look for an independent wedding planner that you like. Planning from afar and with language barriers can be difficult, having a planner if you are having a big wedding can definitely save you time and money in the long run.
If you live in Europe, Spain is just a short flight away for you and your guests and has airports like Malaga with hundreds of international connections. Once in Spain it’s easy to get from one place to another too.
You can carry out the legal part of your union in your home country, you will need to register your marriage with a registrar. You can do this before or after your wedding celebration in Spain. You can have your ceremony wherever you choose to have your wedding and have it officiated by a celebrant. A celebrant can perform your ceremony at your venue if you like or at your outdoor wedding and can write a ceremony especially for you and your partner. There is no limitation on what you have to include or can’t have in your ceremony so it can be as short or long as you like and involve guests, music, whatever you want. A celebrant can also conduct a ceremony resembling a traditional ceremony!
