Legalities and Documentation •

Getting married in Sicily involves the exact same legal requirements as Ireland.

Catholic Church Weddings

There is no legal set amount of days that you must be in Sicily before being able to marry although we do recommend that you are on the island at least 2-3 working days prior to your wedding.

Both the Bride and the Groom must have a Baptism Certificate.

Catholic couples who wish to have a church wedding are advised to inform the Priest of their local Parish of their intent to marry abroad. Your Parish Priest must send all relevant documentation to his Bishop who in turn must send this to the Catholic Church in Sicily at least two months prior to your Wedding Date. Your Wedding Co-ordinator will forward on the details and address of the Catholic Church in Sicily where all documentation is to be sent.

If either party has been previously divorced then your Wedding Co-ordinator is unable to arrange a Catholic Church Wedding in Sicily.

The Civil Ceremony will be in Italian with an English interpreter.

You will receive one copy of the Wedding Certificate in English.

A Marriage Certificate from Sicily is legally recognised in Ireland.

You will need two Witnesses for your Ceremony; if you have come to Sicily on your own then your Wedding Co-ordinator will gladly help you with this.

Your two witness passports’ are required to complete the legal paperwork.

Once the Wedding Co-ordinator receives a deposit we will register your names and date with the Town Hall and/or Church.

Your Wedding Co-ordinator will personally supervise the whole day of the wedding and will be there for you and your guests for the duration of your stay.

Irish Passport Holders must obtain, for BOTH the Bride and The Groom (one copy each), A ‘Freedom To Marry Certificate’ from the Department of Foreign Affairs in Ireland. All prices are correct at time of going to print, prices will be confirmed by your wedding co-ordinator at the time of your enquiry.

Legalities and Documentation Catholic weddings are legal for any nationality in Spain. Generally as long as one of the couple is Catholic and neither is divorced then it is possible to have a Catholic wedding.The paperwork is started with your priest in your home country, sent to your Bishop, who sends it onto the Bishop in Malaga, who then sends it onto the Church where you are getting married.

Civil Wedding Documents:

According to Spanish law, it is possible for 2 non-residents to marry, however this law is interpreted differently in each area. Most areas require either the bride or groom to be a resident, however there are selected hotels, which have special arrangements with their local Town Hall, where nonresidents can get married.

The paperwork can be done from three months before the wedding date but also can be done the day before the wedding.

Suggested Wedding Venues Churches Our wedding planner arranges weddings in various locations around Lanzarote. Most of the Roman Catholic churches are located in Tias, an area on the outskirts of Puerto del Carmen which is only a 10 minute drive from Puerto del Carmen.

La Candelaria

Please note: Roman Catholic Church weddings cannot request a particular church in Lanzarote. Allocation of the churches is at the Bishop’s discretion. Dates are submitted to the Bishop who in turn allocates the church and parish.The Wedding planner will co-ordinate with the Bishop on your behalf. The following is a small sample of churches on offer:

The Church of Los Dolores

Los Dolores

The Church of Los Dolores was constructed in 1780 due to a promise made by the villages of Tinajo to the virgin of Los Dolores or, as she is popularly known, the virgin of the volcanoes, due to the fact that the lava flow that threatened to cover Tinajo stopped when she was brought out. For this reason, the festival is celebrated here to thank the virgin’s vocation in saving the village from the lava of the volcano.

The Church of Nuestra Senora de la Candelaria The Church of Nuestra Senora de la Candelaria was built in 1796 and typifies early architecture on the island. An attractive white modern church.

Civil Wedding: Civil marriages are not permitted in Lanzarote. Only religious weddings are permitted.

Welcome your guests by hosting a pre wedding party How about welcoming your guests with a canapé party? Choose from a selection of beautifully presented canapés.

Suggested Wedding & Reception Venues Civil Ceremony Only civil weddings are conducted in Turkey and, while marriages can theoretically be conducted literally anywhere you choose, most couples elect to get married and have their reception in one of our featured properties where everything can be planned and organised to the last detail. The three hotels which comprise the Palmin Hotel Group each has considerable experience in hosting weddings for couples from Ireland and are particularly recommended as ideal venues. The hotels are very flexible as regards arrangements and menus. Live music and other extras are included as standard in all their wedding packages. The three hotels are all located in the well known and popular Ladies Beach area of Kusadasi and within easy walking distance of each other. It is quite common for couples and their guests to stay in one of the hotels and have their wedding ceremony and/or Reception in one of the others and there is no extra charge for this except for organised transport for guests, if required. Our wedding co-ordinator arranges weddings in Kusadasi in Turkey. Choose from the following venues.

The Palmin Sunset Plaza Hotel The hotel is situated on an elevated site directly overlooking the sea with idyllic seascape views of the nearby Greek island of Samos and Dilek National Park and is a truly picturesque wedding venue. The hotel boasts two magnificent full sea view terraces both of which are ideal for hosting a wedding

ceremony and reception. The upper terrace tends to be more popular with smaller wedding groups where wedding guests join with the other guests in the hotel for after dinner entertainment. The lower terrace is ideal for larger groups and is generally reserved exclusively for the wedding party. There is a large indoor restaurant at this level which is available to the wedding party but most choose to dine and dance on the outside terrace where the lights from the sea and the stars combine to illuminate this romantic setting. Even couples who get married elsewhere come to this hotel to have their most special sunset photos taken. There is a children’s playground adjacent to the lower terrace where the younger guests can amuse themselves while the adults are dancing.

Sea Pearl Hotel This hotel has a dedicated Wedding Garden and Restaurant which has hosted many Irish weddings over the years. It is a very picturesque area and the civil ceremony is usually conducted in the garden area with trees and other greenery as a background. The reception is held in the open air garden restaurant with its marbled tiled floor and artificial water fall and lagoon to lend atmosphere. The Wedding Garden and Restaurant are reserved exclusively on wedding days. Smaller wedding groups may choose to have the reception in the pool side restaurant where they can join other guests for after dinner entertainment. There is a children’s playground adjacent to the garden restaurant area where the younger guests can amuse themselves while the adults are dancing.

The Palmin Hotel This hotel tends to be more popular for smaller wedding parties.There are a number of suitable locations for a wedding ceremony and reception within the hotel but the most popular tends to be the outdoor Marco Polo Terrace Restaurant which overlooks the magnificent lagoon style swimming pool and provides an ideal backdrop when fully lit up at night. This Marco Polo Terrace can be reserved exclusively on wedding days. Receptions are also held in the pool level terrace where wedding guests join with the other guests in the hotel for after dinner entertainment.
