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).

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. We’ll contact you to discuss your plans and recommend one of our celebrants. When you decide to go ahead we send you a deposit invoice, our Terms & Conditions, and a simple form for you to complete with the details of your wedding party, preferred music, readings 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. 

Can we involve our children in our ceremony?

There are lots of ways to include your children in the ceremony
Children can take part in the ceremony as flowergirls or ring-bearers

Yes, it’s a great idea, and there are many great ways your children can play a role; as flower girls or ring-bearers or helping 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.

What is your cancellation policy?

During 2020 and early 2021, in the exceptional circumstances surrounding Covid-19, we refunded all deposits to couples who had to cancel their event. 

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.

Can we meet in person before the wedding?

Yes certainly! If you are visiting the Palma or Soller area, let’s meet up for a coffee!

How long does the ceremony last?

Generally about 30 minutes.

What time does the celebrant arrive?

On your day, we arrive at least 30 minutes before starting time to set up and liaise with your key people, such as your planner, musicians for cueing, photographers for where to stand during special moments of the ceremony and 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 for your celebrant services if we need to cancel?

Yes you will. If you prefer to postpone the wedding until next year, that’s also fine for us and the price will be the same as for this year.
