Your Destination Wedding in Malta

Getting Married in Malta?


A destination wedding is one held away from your hometown. Though this may be in the same country, most couples choose more exotic and romantic locations that are different to anything that can be found around them. For this reason, the honeymoon is many times also combined with the wedding event. Such weddings are usually more intimate, less costly and completely tailor-made to suit your tastes from afar.  

What’s a destination wedding like? Picture yourselves in a warm, luxurious atmosphere with happy friends and family toasting the two of you after recuperating from travel time. Music plays and a feast of fine food awaits. After hours, or even days, of celebration, your guests can relax by the sea while you and your spouse have some well-deserved alone time. This is what a wedding in Malta is all about!

The Maltese Archipelago is located 93km south of Sicily. It consists of three islands: Malta, Gozo and Comino. A vast history left many marks on these tiny islands, including: megaliths, archaic artefacts, Calypso’s Cave and many more. Moreover, the countryside is sprinkled with medieval towers, wayside chapels and some of the oldest known human structures in the world. Due to this richness in history, the Maltese islands are compared to an open air museum. They are positively mythic and every island offers something different and unique; ideal for your honeymoon break.

The Grand Hotel Excelsior is located on the largest island – Malta. It is known as the cultural, administrative and commercial centre. Gozo, the second island, is rather typical of rural lifestyle and activities. The smallest island, Comino, is uninhabited, however boasts a stunning Blue Lagoon; a popular site to visit. Malta offers more than 300 days of sunshine, great beaches, 7000 years of history and a varied nightlife. The islands have great connectivity to major European cities and most flights last approximately 2.5 hours.

Valletta: where the past underlines the present

Your ideal wedding venue is on the doorstep of Valletta, a UNESCO World Heritage City. Malta’s capital city is inextricably linked to the history of the military and charitable Order of St. John of Jerusalem. Valletta’s sites and attractions include the Grand Master’s Palace, the Co-Cathedral, auberges, museums, art galleries, the Manoel Theatre, shopping and nightlife and cover an area of less than 1km2. This makes Valletta one of the most concentrated historic areas in the world. Just recently, Valletta was named the European Capital of Culture for 2018, which saw the city truly come to life and evolve into a world of art, culinary discovery and entertainment; one not to be missed.
