You can get married in Gibraltar, near Spain’

Booking your Wedding
We recommend you book your wedding when your make your flight & hotel reservations as that way you can ensure availability of your preferred wedding date & venue with your holiday. It is a good idea to let your wedding guests know of your plans at the same time so that they may book their own flights & hotels at this time and take advantage of early bird discounts and lower pricing. There may be group discounts available if you make your booking together at this time.
The most important thing to do first is book your wedding date and then your flights & hotel. Once these are secure, everything else can follow later.
