Simple Wedding Ceremonies in Spain

This simple yet beautiful wedding ceremony includes the words you are accustomed to hearing at a traditional marriage.

Not everyone wants their love story or added extras for their wedding ceremony

Included in your simple wedding ceremony:

  • Greeting
  • Ring exchange ritual
  • Reading by one of your guests
  • Personal vows written by you
  • Commemorative Certificate signing with/without witnesses.

This ceremony does not include your love story or ritual elements – please see my Bespoke Wedding Ceremony for more details.

Kind Words from Happy Couples

“Sally was our wedding celebrant in May 2022, she was extremely professional and gave so much attention to detail. I would highly recommend her service for anyone looking to get married in Spain. Thanks again Sally!”


J&C – Cordoba, Andalusia

“Sally conducted our wedding ceremony in Spain last week and was absolutely brilliant. From start to finish, Sally was easy to contact and communicate with (from England). Sally was so organised that I felt completely relaxed and at ease about that whole part of the wedding.”


E&C – Cala Clemence Del Portichol, Javea, Costa Blanca

“Sally married us in August, and we couldn’t have wished for a better person to marry us. She really was amazing. We had lots of children at our service and she catered for everyone and made us all so relaxed. We can not thank her enough and tell everyone about Sally and how amazing she made our day.”


D&G – Castillo Fortaleza de Santa Pola, Alicante, Costa Blanca”

How it Works

Get in touch

I offer a complimentary no obligation introductory meeting by phone, video call or locally in person if you live close to Mojacar, so you can discover whether I’m the celebrant you would like to help you celebrate your special day. I hope I am!

Book your ceremony

Once you say yes I will send you my Terms & Conditions and as soon as the deposit is paid, your date is secured in my diary.

I will send ideas for readings and poems that I think may resonate with you. I can even send you some vow examples so you can start to create your own.

On the day

I arrive 1 hour before the start of the ceremony to help steady any nerves and liaise with any readers, planners or suppliers you may have enlisted to help on your special day but I will of course have spoken to all suppliers well before your actual ceremony.

Simple Wedding Ceremonies in Spain FAQs

Will the wedding ceremony be unique?

Of course it will be unique, it’s your wedding after all! I will say some lovely opening words about marriage and love, before moving on to your promises/commitments and ring exchange. If you would like a family member or friend to do a reading (I can send you some ideas) I will incorporate this into your script. Once the rings have been exchanged and you have had your ‘first’ kiss as newlyweds, I will finish off with some lovely words before sending you on your way to join friends and family so you can begin the celebrations.

How is a traditional wedding ceremony different from a bespoke wedding ceremony?

A traditional ceremony lasts approximately 20 minutes and does not include your love story. It is a bit like a registry office style ceremony but just a little nicer. It’s simple and straightforward which is all some people want.

A bespoke wedding ceremony lasts around 40 minutes depending on how many readings or rituals you may want incorporated. It is a ceremony that has bells and whistles! Your love story is told from the very start, from how you first met, who caught the other’s eye first, who asked who out and who said I love you first etc. It includes fun times and experiences you’ve shared together from holidays to life events. It is a ceremony that stands out as being memorable for everyone – it’s part of the main event and will have your guests smiling and becoming engrossed in your story and definitely not dropping off waiting for the party to begin!

We want a more personalised ceremony, can you tell our love story or include rituals?

This is not included within a traditional wedding ceremony however I adore doing bespoke personalised ceremonies as it leaves everyone in the wedding party finding out little things that they’d maybe not heard before. It can contain humour from funny occasions that stand out for you both. I detail what it is you love about the other along with your differences, and I can even help you write some meaningful vows or if you want to have a go yourself I can send you some ideas to try and help get your creative juices flowing!

Can you help me find other wedding suppliers in Spain?

Yes of course I am more than happy to share my list of suppliers with you, and if I don’t know I will try and find out for you!

Where can we have our wedding ceremony in Spain?

Having your wedding along the coast of Spain is a beautiful choice. From Alicante to Malaga the possibilities are plentiful. What’s your ideal wedding location? Do you dream of exchanging your vows surrounded by nature be it a beach like the shores of Cabo de Gata or a national park in the Sierra Nevada mountains? Is history and culture your style with locations like Seville or an idyllic town plaza? Maybe you’ve found the perfect hillside villa with the relaxed vibe and stunning views? Whatever you are looking for, you will find it in beautiful Spain!

Within reason you can hold your ceremony anywhere you want and can have it at any time of the day! With so many beautiful towns, cities and beaches in Spain there is so much on offer. From beachside restaurants, to villas in the mountains, fincas, haciendas, even castle’s.

If you do want a beach ceremony then unless it’s an elopement ceremony you are likely to need a license which a wedding planner can help with. Not only can you hold your ceremony anywhere you want and can have it at any time of the day, being blessed with over 320 glorious days of sunshine we experience each year here in Spain, you can pretty much slot in your ceremony anywhere from dawn to dusk!

I’ve had the pleasure of being a celebrant at different locations and for different couples. I believe that love comes in many guises and colours and wedding ceremonies of today should be as unique as you. When we work together it is your day, your way.

Why have a destination wedding in Spain?

The thing about escaping to do a destination wedding is usually because couples are wanting something different to what they can get in their home country. They want somewhere where not only is the sun shining but a place where they can hold their wedding ceremony outside without any fear of rain. On the plus side it also becomes your wedding and your honeymoon – bonus! No having to even think about anything else but enjoying yourselves…what’s not to love!

How do we get married in Spain?

Getting legally married in Spain is not easy, and even Spanish residents living here can find it tricky as Spain in general loves bureaucracy and paperwork! As a guide, to be legally married you do need to involve a Registrar, whether that be in Gibraltar, or in the UK or whichever country you reside in.

Contracting your marriage in front of the Gibraltarian Registrar is the legal part of getting married. The Registrar can only conduct your marriage at one of their approved venues with a non-religious ceremony under registration guidelines.

See the Guidance Document for Marriages and Civil Partnerships in Gibraltar

Is our Celebrant wedding ceremony in Spain legally binding?

A Celebrant wedding ceremony is not legally binding, you need to be married by a registrar in an approved venue to be legally married. This comes with certain restrictions on what the marriage ceremony can and must include, and where it can be held. A Celebrant ceremony on the other hand can be held anywhere you want, include whatever you want and be completely personalised for you.

If my partner and I both live In Spain, can we legally get married here?

Good question. Unless you or your partner have Spanish Citizenship (a Spanish passport and not just a residency card like my husband and I have) then getting married here would be a bureaucratic nightmare as the Spanish just love their paperwork and it would likely be a long and very frustrating and virtually impossible objective to achieve, especially as each province or region often have different regulations and requirements.

However, legislation changes all the time, so if you do fit the relevant brief to have your civil partnership here then you will need to register your relationship as “pareja de hecho” at your local council or “ayuntamiento” and take it from there.
