Bespoke Weddings in Spain

You’ve found the perfect love, now it’s time to find the perfect wedding celebrant for your destination wedding in Spain

From the moment you choose me as your Wedding Celebrant in Spain,

I will begin to work my magic to create something wonderful and tell your story with passion, expression and joy.

Working with couples to create their perfect wedding ceremony in Spain is my passion

It would be my absolute pleasure to be a part of your special day and compose a truly memorable presentation of your love and relationship.

I’m here to listen and to get to know you. An introductory call is free and I’d love to hear from you.

Why Work with Me?
I really am someone who cares about your day as much as you. Not only that, I want to create a wedding ceremony as unique as your relationship. There is nothing cookie cutter about our work together. I write and officiate every ceremony as if it were for a family member of mine.

I think couples choose me because I am warm and bubbly and ‘real’ and they feel confident after speaking to me that not only they, but their guests will feel very at ease around me on the day which is hugely important. I’ve also been told by many couples that I have a very warm and calming aura about me, so any nerves on the day, don’t worry….I’ve got you!

Kind Words from Happy Couples

“Sally created the most personalised ceremony for us, and in such a short time frame (2 weeks!). Sally made everything easy for us from start to finish.

Our ceremony was beautiful with so much humour describing our relationship so perfectly. We couldn’t be more thankful”

 

M&G in Denia – Costa Blanca

“I lost count of the number of our guests who came up to us afterwards and said how special Sally was and how great the ceremony had been. There were many tears! We were so lucky to have discovered Sally… and can’t recommend her enough. Sally – your attention to detail, your time spent with us really getting to know us, your incredible kindness and thoughtfulness for our ceremony was just… magical!”

 

G&A – Hacienda San Bernardo, Hornachuelos, Cordoba

“From the first day we met Sally to discuss our wedding celebration at our villa in Spain, it was obvious that she is a caring, professional celebrant who went out of her way to customise our ceremony to reflect our journey in our own individual way. On the day, there wasn’t a dry eye in the house (from laughing and crying!) and all our guests commented on what a wonderful ceremony it had been.”

 

D&D – Mojacar, Costa de Almeria

Tell me Your Love Story

Love in every form is driven by emotions and so whether that’s a wedding or a funeral, I put my heart and soul into every script because in the back of my mind, I’m always thinking, ‘if this was my ceremony, would I be happy if this was my script and more importantly, would I be happy with the way it’s being delivered?’

When we first talk (which is usually over video call because of the distances to where we both live) I’ll quickly make you feel comfortable and very quickly you’ll be happily chatting away to me. I know I come over as genuine and I don’t try to be someone I’m not, which I think is very important. I’m a bit like ‘Ronseal’ (if you’re old enough to remember the advert!) in that I do what I say on the tin! Because none of my ceremonies are standard, each ceremony script I write is totally tailored to the individual and I will always go by each couple’s brief as to how they’d like their ceremony to be.

I’m here to listen and to get to know you. An introductory call is free and I’d love to hear from you.

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!

Tell me about your perfect wedding

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 over a couples questionnaire for you both to complete, followed by further follow up calls, draft scripts along the way so I can start getting creative on your script. I also send ideas for readings and poems that I think may resonate with you and other options that you may not have considered to further personalise your ceremony. And if you’re feeling creative, 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.

Spain Wedding Ceremony FAQs

Will the wedding ceremony script be unique?

“I write from the heart with a bit of added soul”

As they say, the devil is in the detail. Yes, your script will be totally unique to you both. It can be something more traditional, or quirky, full of fun to include both memorable and poignant moments, how cool is that!. My aim is for you and your guests to be talking about your ceremony for years to come!! With your help I get down to the nitty gritty to discover the very core of your personalities (I’m naturally nosey in all honesty!) I ask loads of questions and invest a huge amount of time getting to know you both to find out about your unique relationship so I can create a storyboard all about you! I get to discover how special each partner is to the other and will ensure your ceremony reflects you both as individuals and as a couple…how lucky am I?

I listen to your ideas and expectations so if you prefer bucket loads of humour injected into your ceremony with lots of little anecdotes about you both then just leave it to me! Tears and laughter all at once are my speciality! How about your beloved pet being your ring bearer or maybe you want your guests to join in with your favourite song halfway through your ceremony? Easy peasy!

My goal is to personalise your ceremony and make it as formal or informal as you wish, there really are no boundaries.

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.
