Can we marry in Minorca?

Hi,

We would love to have our wedding in Minorca but as far as we can tell you have to be either Spanish, a local or catholic! As we are neither is this up to date info? Have seen mention of an Anglian church in Mahon but the link posted doesn't work. We come here every year and it's a special place for us so if it's not possible we will be gutted. Does anyone on the island organise blessings instead? You can marry in Mallorca and Ibiza so need some clarity please!

Many thanks in advance fellow Minorca lovers :)

There is an Anglican Church in Es Castell and it is possible to have a blessing but I think residency rules make marriage difficult. Read an article in Roqueta about this some while back so will look it up.

Yeah thanks for the pointer, have seen this thread before but as it's 8 years old I was wondering, hoping, that things had changed! Might have to go for the blessing option but I will try the Spanish embassy first, you never know!

Options for Non-Residents - Catholic Church Service - documentation required to prove you are practicing Catholics.

Anglican Blessing following UK or Gibraltar Civil Ceremony.

Hotel Blessing following UK or Gibraltar Civil Ceremony.

For anything else at least one of you needs to be resident in Spain.

Hi, congratulations on your wedding plans!

A relative if mine tried to marry in Menorca but it proved quite difficult. All the relevant English documents had to be translated into Spanish and along with other procedures it proved too difficult. What they did do however was marry in the UK then have a blessing with all the family present at the monestary at Mont Toro. The setting and atmosphere was spectacular along with the stunning views for photos. A big party followed in a restaurant which lasted through to the early hours. It was a memorable day! Good luck with your plans!
