Your wedding ceremony in Mallorca – all you need to know

Can we get legally married in Mallorca?

There are a few ways that you can have a legal ceremony in Mallorca – but these are quite limited; if you are Catholics, if you have Swedish nationality or if you have residency here. If this doesn’t fit your situation, don’t worry! Almost all of our couples opt for a simple register office ceremony at home a few weeks before the wedding to take care of the legalities with the minimum of fuss (many of them don’t even tell family or friends to keep it very low-key).

Do you conduct same-sex ceremonies?

Absolutely! We love creating personalised ceremonies for LBTGQ couples.

We have lots of readings which are great for same-sex couples and many gender-neutral ones too.

What paperwork do we need to fill out?

To arrange your ceremony, just send us an email or complete the enquiry form in the Contact us section. If you already have a preference for one of our celebrant team, let us know and we’ll check if they are free. Otherwise, we’ll advise you on who is available for your day. You can have introductory call if you wish. Then, when you’ve decided, we send you a deposit invoice, our Terms & Conditions, and a simple questionnaire, About your Ceremony so that you can tell us a bit more about who will be involved on the day,  your preferred readings, music and other aspects. That’s all the paperwork done!

Do you do baby-naming ceremonies?

Yes we do! Some couples choose to combine this with their wedding or vow renewal.

Do we have a rehearsal beforehand?

That’s not usually necessary, and most couples arrive just a couple of days before the wedding so timing would be tight. But we can have a Zoom call before you leave to go though the timings and orchestration of your ceremony. 

There are lots of ways to include your children in the ceremony

Can we involve our children in our ceremony?

Yes, that’s a great idea, and there are many great ways your children can play a role. They can be flower girls or ring-bearers or help to tie the ribbons with you in a hand-fasting ceremony which unites the whole family.  Older children can also do a special reading as part of the ceremony.

Can you marry us at our villa?

Yes, absolutely! As wedding celebrants, we can perform ceremonies in gardens, in vineyards, in private villas, you name it.

Do we meet in person before the wedding?

Usually it’s easier and more convenient for us to chat via a Zoom or Skype call. But if you are visiting the Palma or Soller area, let’s meet up for a coffee! 

How long does the ceremony last?

It’s generally about 30 minutes.

What time does our celebrant arrive?

On the day, we’ll arrive at least 30 minutes before starting time to set up and liaise with your key people, such as your planner, photographers for checking where they’ll stand during special moments of the ceremony and musicians/PA team for sound checks. Ulf arrives in styleWe also double check with your contact person for any last minute changes.

Will we get our deposit back if we need to cancel?

Yes you will. If you need to postpone the wedding, that’s also fine for us. But do let us know as soon as possible if this is the case.
