Not only is the country an attractive, affordable and accessible option for nuptials abroad, but everyone is welcome to get married in Malta, thanks to its LGBTQ pledge.
Malta, the largest in an archipelago of beautiful islands in the Mediterranean Sea, is just over three hours from the UK so for you, and your guests, it’s just one easy flight away.
The country gets over 300 days of sunshine a year, illuminating the spectacular natural beauty of the island and some 7,000 years of its history.

Malta is home to 365 beautiful churches, from humble chapels to ornate cathedrals, so having a religious service is no issue, but there are plenty of options for civil ceremonies too.
Whether it’s a charming villa, a quaint farmhouse or a grand castle, Malta’s far-reaching choice of wedding venues means you can’t possibly make a bad decision. Or, if a touch of modern Malta is to your taste, there’s also a variety of stunning five-star hotels like the Phoenicia Malta, which offers affordable luxury for a truly memorable big day.
Seasonality isn’t a problem either, because Malta has over 300 days of sunshine a year, making it the perfect location for an outdoor wedding. Keep things simple and say your vows on the beach at sunset or why not surround yourself with nature in one of the island’s lush gardens?

Malta is among the most progressive European countries on gay rights. Not only does the country boast a thriving LGBTQ nightlife and its own Gay Pride week but same-sex marriages have been legally held on the island since 2017.
The Government of Malta approved legislation for civil unions two years ago, so venues stretching right across the island can welcome gay and lesbian ceremonies. And, since embracing marriage equality, words like ‘husband’ and ‘wife’ have been replaced with the gender-neutral ‘spouse’ ensuring same-sex marriage carries the same rights and obligations outlined in state laws.
