Marriage Requirements

Spain

Getting married in Spain can be quite complicated and lengthy. If you are a Catholic then you can have a full Catholic wedding in Spain and your local priest will initiate the paperwork and seek permission from the bishop in the area that you want to get married. If one of the party isn't a Catholic then you will have to ask for a dispensation from your priest. A civil ceremony is possible if you have proof of residency in Spain and you will have to apply to your local civil registry. It can be quite time consuming and complicated and quite often it is easier to go to Gibraltar for a civil wedding, where only limited paperwork is needed and it is less complicated. The documents needed include valid passports and full birth certificates for both parties. Many couples choose to follow this quick civil wedding with a blessing at an alternative venue, which is just like a proper wedding, exchanging vows and rings, but is not legally binding.
