Blue skies, crystal clear seas, breathtaking sunsets…for romance, few places compare to the beautiful Mediterranean islands of Malta and Gozo. For your wedding, they might just be the ultimate location. With over 300 days each year of sparkling sunshine, the weather is on your side, and Malta’s rich heritage guarantees a line-up of spectacular venues. Best of all, English is widely spoken so getting married in Malta is as relaxed and stress-free as the welcoming Maltese locals.
There are an unbelievable 365 Churches in Malta and Gozo, from the grandest baroque cathedral to simple countryside chapels. Whether you go for imposing splendour or a smaller, intimate country chapel, it couldn’t be easier to arrange a religious service from the UK. If you have chosen a Civil Ceremony, the rich, colourful past of the islands offers a wide range of stunning venues, from a baroque palace with fabulous grounds, the rustic, charm of a traditional Gozo farmhouse, or even a beautiful landscaped garden overlooking the Grand Harbour. Wherever you choose, the sparkling blue Mediterranean Sea and gorgeous countryside provides a stunning backdrop for photos and memories you’ll treasure.
After the wedding ceremony, it’s time to celebrate. In Malta’s colourful culture, weddings are lavish, splendid affairs and Malta’s array of world-class hotels are on hand to create a magical reception for you. Many of the top hotels have an expert wedding team on hand to create your perfect day, handling every detail so all you have to do is enjoy it all.
Your wedding is just the start of your adventure together on Malta and Gozo. After all the excitement, many couples just want to relax and unwind. Luckily there are 12 hotels in Malta and two in Gozo offering state of the art spa facilities for some well-deserved pampering. Don’t forget the soft, sandy beaches and warm Mediterranean Sea for a few gentle days of unwinding, just the two of you. Once you’ve soaked up the sun there’s plenty to discover. Cosmopolitan Malta offers bustling markets, bars, shops, medieval churches, galleries and fascinating historical sites to explore.
Food, Glorious Food
Wander through the ancient streets of Malta or the charming fishing villages of Gozo, and discover the countless bars, restaurants and cafes offering everything from fine dining to traditional Maltese cuisine. The Maltese love eating, drinking and entertaining. Whether you’re in a seafood restaurant overlooking the harbour, or tasting Maltese delicacies by candlelight, dining out is an unforgettable experience.
Malta’s Mediterranean coast is ideal for exploring by yacht. Chartering is easy, and what more romantic way to see the islands than by boat? Many secluded bays and peaceful lagoons are only reachable by sea and the quaint harbours and marinas throughout the island welcome everything from small boats to superyachts. If action and adventure are more your thing, the clear Mediterranean waters offer every sort of water-sport imaginable from snorkelling to wakeboarding.
Malta’s Lovers Tree project invites newly-weds to plant a tree at Xrobb-L-Ghagin Nature Park to commemorate their wedding. A heart shaped plaque with your names and wedding date is fixed to the tree so you can visit it for years to come as a lasting reminder of your wonderful wedding and honeymoon in Malta.
