Formalities & documentation
Civil and religious marriages can be celebrated in Spain for people over 18. While Spanish law appears to permit foreigners to marry in Spain, in practice it will usually be necessary for one of the couple to have been legally resident in Spain for at least two years. An application for marriage in Spain will usually involve lengthy and time-consuming paperwork, and applicants should therefore allow plenty of time.
Roman Catholic Marriages
These are a matter for the local Archbishop in the area of the forthcoming marriage and, in general, a baptism certificate and a statutory declaration by the parents of the English party to the effect that their son / daughter is single, is required. Formalities do, however, vary significantly from parish to parish and the requirements should be checked well in advance with the local priest.
Formalities may vary and applicants should check which precise documents are needed. In general you need the following documentation.
- A birth certificate ( accompanied by a sworn translation )
- Passport, Consular registration Certificate and a
- Consular Certificate of No-Impediment to the marriage are required.
A notice of intention to marry is displayed on a Consular notice
board for 21 days. The notice itself is sworn by the applicant and
can only be accepted if he / she has been residing for a 21 day
period in the area where the notice is displayed.
Where one of the parties to the forthcoming marriage is
resident in the UK and will be coming to Spain for the marriage
ceremony they should approach the nearest Spanish Consulate
in the UK for full information.
If proof of UK residence is needed, a letter can be obtained
from the local Electoral Registration Office.
All documents that are in English have to have the Hague
Apostille on them. You can find further information on this subject on www.fco.gov.uk/legislation.
The current fee for the Apostille is £ 19.00 for each document. If you go there in person this process takes about 2 days. If you send the documents by post it takes about 2 weeks and you need to send an extra £ 2.00 for postage and packing. All documents must then be translated into Spanish and presented at the relevant town hall at least 3 months before the planned wedding.
It is important to bear in mind that paperwork can be lengthy and time consuming and forward planning is imperative, especially when you're getting married in the summer. The British Consulate in Málaga covers the Autonomous Region of Andalusía, and the Spanish Autonomous cities of Ceuta and Melilla in the North of Africa.
Christian & Kate were married
on September 20th Wedding in Frigiliana
Nov '08 edition
The forecast had been rain for their wedding day but thankfully it was a clear blue sky and stayed that way all day. " Our ceremony was at 3pm. We had arranged for our guests to meet at the Toboso Hotel terrace for drinks before getting the coach to Frigilana for the ceremony. "
" After the ceremony we had sangría in the square opposite the church. The coach took our guests back to Nerja whilst we stayed on in Frigiliana to have pictures taken. They arrived in Casa Luque just after 6pm for drinks and canapés and all the guests were taken aback with the fantastic views from the terrace. "
" We had a truly fantastic day and so did all our guests. Everything was perfect; it was everything that we wanted ! The only negative thing about our day was that it all went too quickly ! The whole experience was fantastic; the whole build-up and being able to enjoy the holiday with our family and friends who had made the effort to share our day with us made the wedding feel like it lasted a lot longer than just one day !”

on October 15th Wedding

Rain was predicted for the big day, which would have moved the ceremony indoors. But like its people, Gibraltar's weather proved sunny and warm. " When we entered the garden for our ceremony, it was as if we had entered a magical world where elves tended lush plants, exotic reptiles, and ponds of golden fish. We felt privileged to exchange our vows in such an exquisite setting. After the ceremony, we wandered the charming streets and then took a cable car to the top of the Rock to visit the Barbary Apes, take in the ocean air, and gaze across the sparkling Mediterranean to Africa. "
" Along the way, Gibraltarians stopped not only to congratulate us but also to snap our photo, as if we were movie stars ! Our time in Gibraltar was too short. The next day we took a tour of the glittering Costa Del Sol. At the airport in Málaga, we boarded a plane to our honeymoon in Marrakech. The sights and sounds of Gibraltar had animated the iconic image of the Rock. But even more vividly, the people of this region had welcomed us, witnessed our vows, celebrated with us, and sent us on our way with a bid to return one day. And we will. ”

Wedding in Nerja
July '08 edition
Loren and Nicky started their day getting ready at The Hotel Carabeo, Nerja. Nicky's favourite part of the day was walking to the church with her father. " We had a special moment with each other and it was great to see everyone congratulating me and clapping as we approached the church. The ceremony went by in a bit of a daze. I remember walking out of the church breathing a sigh of relief that the formalities were over and the celebrations could begin.”
The reception was held at The Hotel Toboso & the speeches were one of the most memorable parts of the day. “ The only time I cried during the whole day was during the speeches. We had quite a few tender moments and of course some funny ones too. I have such wonderful memories, not just of my wedding day but also of a whole week with friends, family, and plenty of joy and laughter. "
" It was wonderful and I'd recommend getting married abroad, especially here in Nerja. "
Darren & Nicola
on August 4th Wedding in Frigiliana
Sept '08 edition
The happy couple got married up in Frigiliana Church at 1p.m. and the reception was held at The Hotel Toboso, Nerja. Darren recalls, " It was an action-packed day. What pleased most of the guests was how well everything flowed. We would not have changed anything. A perfect day had by all. My family and Nicola's were delighted with how the wedding went. I must say that a wedding abroad is so different from having one back at home. "
" Having friends and family on holiday all together is great and it's just so much more relaxed, and the whole wedding experience lasts longer. The best thing was that we could share the next few days after the wedding with our friends and family on holiday. "
" It wouldn’t have happened like that if we had got married back at home. Also if we had decided to get married back at home we would probably have had to pay nearly twice the cost. To sum it all up, it ended up being the fairytale wedding that any girl would wish for and the memories we have of the whole day will truly last forever. "

on September 10th Wedding

The reception was held at the Hotel Albayzín Del Mar in Almuñécar. They were surrounded by beautifully landscaped gardens, pools and fountains. Two Spanish guitars entertained their guests at the pre-reception drinks and canapés. We were then entertained by the band ‘The Mighty Pimps’, who were great and got the crowd into form for a great evening.
It is hard to put into words what a fantastic time we had. We could never have arranged such a wedding in Ireland. We were so lucky and blessed that our family and friends were willing to travel and enjoy our day with us. "
Nerja will always hold a special place in our hearts and we will be back to celebrate an anniversary or two in the future."
