fbpx TOP 10 REASONS TO GET MARRIED IN MALTA | Perfect Weddings Abroad


Weddings in Malta have become very popular in recent years, as couples look for 'something different'. Couples who are looking to get married in Malta can choose everything from stunning beachside backdrops to elegant castles and private villas. We have an excellent selection of large and small wedding venues on the island of Malta and its sister island Gozo.

Whether it's an outdoor wedding ceremony and reception in local gardens, or a garden gazebo overlooking the sea beach weddings, Malta has it all!  Ideal for weddings all year round, Malta offers sunshine even in the winter months, making a perfect destination for your wedding abroad. 

Here are our top 10 reasons for getting married in Malta:

1. Just a 3 hour flight away from the UK

Malta is such an easy reachable destination for UK travellers, you can depart from a number of regional airports making it extremely easy to get to.

2. Explore an abundance of incredible history

Unlike most travel destinations, you can visit a large number of fascinating museums and attractions that testify to Malta’s rich and turbulent history within a relatively small area. You can organise day trips, combining a visit to, for example, Mdina with visiting the Tarxien Temples, rather than losing half the day on travelling to a single location.

3. Foodie heaven with 3 Michelin Star restaurants on the island

Malta is proud to host three Michelin star restaurants – Noni, Under Grain and De Mondion. In February 2020, these three outstanding restaurants were the first in the Archipelago’s history to be awarded Michelin star status, cementing Malta’s place on the world’s gastronomy scene.  

4. Discover amazing luxury hotels perfect for your wedding night

This year has seen the opening of 3 amazing luxury hotels including the Malta Marriott Hotel & Spa, Hyatt Regency Malta and Iniala Harbour House. There are so many fantastic hotels to choose from that you will easily be able to please all of your guests with their preferred choice of accomodation from budget to high end luxury. 

5. Very popular for Same Sex and Asian Weddings

Malta will host EuroPride in 2023, which is Europe’s biggest gay pride event. The Archipelago has retained the number one place on the IGLA- Europe Rainbow Index for five years running. Malta is proud of its inclusivity with parliament approving in 2015 the Gender Identity Act, legalised same-sex marriage in 2017 and introduced gender-neutral passports in 2018. The island is also very popular for Asian Weddings and is highly experienced in hosting large events with fantastic Asian catering and beautiful venues to choose from. 

6. Experience a new wine trail - The perfect pre/post wedding get together for you and your guests 

If you are looking for a wine tasting getaway, Malta should be on your radar, especially as you cannot purchase Maltese wine in the UK. The newly released Wine Trail, created to inspire wine enthusiasts, maps out the ultimate wine tasting break, highlighting where you can find all of Malta and Gozo’s vineyards. 

7. Wide variety of stunning wedding venues to choose from

Malta has an amazing variety of wedding venues on offer.... From beautiful stately homes, unique heritage parks to magical palaces and quaint farmhouses. You will be sure to find your dream wedding location on this incredible island!

8. 365 churches to choose from if you are looking for a religious wedding

If you are looking for a traditional religious wedding then Malta has an abundance of churches on offer - one for every day of the year to be exact!

9. Voted Europe's best diving destination with crystal clear waters, beautiful reefs and historical wrecks

Repeatedly voted Europe’s number one diving destination and the second-best diving site in the world, Malta has placed 12 additional historical wreck sites on its diving map. Providing a clear blue sea which boasts an abundance of reefs, stunning caverns and caves, trails around the Archipelago are designed for both beginner and advanced divers, making it an absolute must for divers worldwide. 

10. Sailing, kayaking, paddle boarding, zipling... Just some of the activities to choose from 

For those wanting to explore the waters, but are not ready for the full diving experience, Malta offers year-round warm waters and excellent visibility for snorkelling at the Blue Lagoon.
