Mallorca is the largest of the Balearic islands in the Mediterranean Sea, and one of our favorite places in Spain. Mallorca is a great island to drive around. It’s home to dramatic mountains and picturesque cliffs, all with winding roads passing through. There are so many beautiful venues waiting for you to be discovered and we truly believe that getting married on Mallorca is amazing.


Barcelona is filled with cool neighborhoods, whether cool to you means hidden art galleries, cocktail bars, designer boutiques, or hipster hangouts. Choose from bohemian Gràcia, hip El Born, trendy Poblenou, and edgy Raval, among others. Barcelona is surely one of the most wanted places for a destination wedding in Spain.

Ibiza is an island of blue-skied paradise and rich Mediterranean history. From the fig and olive trees lining the stone pathways of the Old Town to the stylish beach clubs set into beautiful hidden coves to the glamourous yachts sailing the dazzling Mediterranean waters, this cosmopolitan island combines spirituality, history, and bohemian living with world-class music culture.


While Formentera has all the natural landmarks of a Balearic island – pine forests, rustic countryside, sparkling sea, and rocky coastline dotted with picturesque sandy beaches – the landscape is more untouched than that of its sister isle. The landscapes here are beyond beautiful and we can highly recommend visiting this beautiful piece of land. Unspoiled. Rugged. Raw. Wild. Windswept. Formentera makes a beautiful backdrop for your elopement.

Seville is the artistic, cultural, and financial capital of southern Spain. It’s a city full of architecture, history, and vibrant life. This city is an adventurous place and perfect if you want to get married in an ancient and beautiful city. And of course, experience the best of Flamenco and try as many flavors of tapas as you can find (to be eaten with wine of course).


In the south of the island, you can visit the ravine of Barranco de Guayadeque, with steep cliffs and the characteristic palm trees of Gran Canaria. Also in the south, are the dunes of Maspalomas, a huge area of golden sand that looks like a desert, but is a magnificent beach. Meanwhile, in the center of the island stand Pozo de las Nieves and Roque Nublo, two peaks offering excellent views. From there you can even see the neighboring island of Tenerife. And to the northwest, you can visit a volcanic crater, the Bandama Caldera.

Andalusia is a massive region in the South of Spain known for sprawling mountain regions, pristine beaches along the Costa del Sol, and stunning Moorish architecture. It’s quickly becoming one of the most popular places to get married in Spain thanks to its beautiful weather and a wide variety of wedding venues and things to see and do. There are so many cities like Seville, Granada, Malaga, and Cadiz that make the perfect spot for your wedding in Spain.


Fuerteventura is the jewel of the Canaries. It’s quieter than nearby Tenerife or Gran Canaria, allowing you to enjoy the peace and tranquillity of undeveloped beaches. It lies on the same latitude as Florida and Mexico so the climate is pleasant all year round. The name translates to “strong fortune” in English and it’s a perfect wedding destination because of its long white sandy beaches and epic, black volcanic landscapes.
