Church Weddings in Gibraltar
Church weddings in a number of religions or denominations have full legal recognition in Gibraltar and you will not need to have a separate civil wedding.
No matter what church you chose to marry in you will need to comply with all the civil requirements and hold a Special Marriage Licence issued by the Gibraltar Registrar before the marriage can take place.
The normal paperwork and procedures for an overseas wedding within your religion must also be followed.
