If you have recently spent some time on holiday in Spain, you may have decided that it is the place where you want to get married. The charming streets of Barcelona, the breathtaking views across the mountains, and the unforgettable food and drinks are only some of the reasons why a wedding in Barcelona is a great idea.

The experts from Catalunya Casas are available to help you plan everything from villa choice to a personal deejay.

If you want to get married legally in Spain and you are not a Spanish national, your only option is to wed in a Catholic church. There are English-speaking priests available upon request. If you decide to get married in a Catholic church, some of your top choices would be the 14th-century Gothic church of Santa Maria del Mar, the Barcelona Cathedral, and the cathedral of Sant Pau del Camp. Protestant weddings can be done too; however, you will only receive a blessing instead of a full service and ceremony. Legalities must be settled in your home country before you relocate to Spain for your wedding. A civil wedding in Barcelona requires a residency in Spain of at least 2 years.
Alternatively, villas in or around Barcelona serve as ideal settings for your reception after the ceremony, or for the rehearsal dinner the day before the wedding. Catalunya Casas can recommend large Catalonian villa rentals with enough rooms to accommodate you and your loved ones. If you have numerous guests coming to Spain for your wedding, multiple Catalonian villa rentals may be arranged as well.
A simple search online will lead you to various local suppliers that provide services for your wedding in Barcelona. You can book photographers, videographers, caterers, bakers, and florists for your special day. A wedding in Barcelona would be a memorable choice and provide a lifetime full of loving memories.
