Elopements in Spain

Why we’re obsessed with elopements in Spain

Getting married is hands down one of the most amazing events that any couple who chooses to, can experience. For most couples, there will be no other experience like it. And this is why we love love love being a part of any couple’s wedding experience and helping them to craft a ceremony that is just what they want.

And whilst all wedding ceremony types are amazing, there is something really extra special about elopements, and elopements in Spain.

Whether it’s the fact that a couple chooses to come by themselves (or with a handful of loved ones) to a completely different country, or the fact that a couple have decided to focus on making the day just about them.

Or the fact that they want to do one of life’s biggest moments in the smallest and most intimate way. Or that they made a very brave decision to strip back their wedding day to its most rawest state. Whatever prompts a couple to get married in this way, it really is a very special way to celebrate your love, your twosome and your marriage.

The benefits of eloping in Spain

  • Spain is a country of incredible natural beauty with so much variety and choice of perfect elopement locations.
  • Eloping allows you to truly focus on just the two of you and making your special occasion centred on you both.
  • Your elopement ceremony becomes a private event where you can share you love and exchange your vows in an intimate setting.
  • You get to celebrate your amazing twosome in just the way that you wish, without having to worry or cater to anyone else.

So how can Malaga Minister wedding celebrants help with your elopement in Spain

As the Costa Del Sol’s longest serving celebrant company, Malaga Minister has been creating ceremony joy and spreading love since 2007.

We carried out our first elopement wedding in June 2012 with a gorgeous couple who came from the states for the elopement. We stood under an old oak tree in the grounds of hotel Fuentes Del sol and carried out the most stunning heartfelt ceremony.

Over the years, the locations have changed, an outcrop of rocks on a Marbella beach, a valley under Ronda’s famous viaduct, the countryside grounds of typically Andalusian holiday home, but the emotions, intimacy and magic remain.
