Getting Married In Lanzarote

Updated: Mar 8, 2023

Let's get straight to it, there's no time to waste, these are the most common FAQ's I (a wedding celebrant in Lanzarote) get asked about getting married in Lanzarote:

Can we legally get married in Lanzarote?

If you are a resident, then Yes you can, otherwise it's a No, can have a Wedding Blessing.

All that would be different are a few omitted legal words during your ceremony. You actually have the benefit of tailoring your ceremony words to your specific liking.

Shall we do the legal paperwork before or after our Lanzarote Wedding Blessing?

My advice would be to complete the legal side before. Otherwise, this will affect the wording and type of ceremony that I can write for you. Also in my experience, you will feel "Married" straight after the Lanzarote Wedding Blessing rather than be thinking, "oh, we still need to do the legal side now."

Can we have a Commitment Ceremony instead?

Absolutely, if this sits better with your values and beliefs then we will work together to create the perfect script to mark the next step in your lives together.

Can we have our Lanzarote Wedding Blessing on the beach?

There are a few hotels that have their own private beaches where this can take place.

We cannot, unfortunately, just choose and set up an arch, seats, and decorations on any public beach ourselves without permission. There are, however, many beachside venues to choose from, so you can still walk along the beach for those beautiful beach wedding photos, post ceremony.

But if a beach wedding ceremony is what you really, really want then there is a possibility of making this happen. This is subject to permission and approval from the local council, now Lindsey Stonier Signature Weddings and Events who work in collaboration with DO Events, are able to try and seek this documentation on request.

How long does a Wedding Blessing Ceremony last in Lanzarote?

Normally, around 30 minutes. A ceremony that lasts over an hour tends to bore the audience. A ceremony that is too short can lose its credibility.

How much does a wedding cost in Lanzarote?

This is a difficult question. How many guests do you have? What styled venue do you want? Do you want photography, videography, flowers, wedding cake, hair stylist, make-up artist ,live entertainment, fireworks, etc. All of these are optional.

Or is it a simple Elopement/Wedding Blessing in Lanzarote you are looking for?

The best way to find the answer to this question is to jump on a quick, no-obligation, call with me and

`pick-my-brains´. Bring your pen and paper to write down all the information!

If we choose a Celebrant, can we include some religious content? Can a Celebrant refer and include 2 types of religion during the service?

Absolutely, the beauty of having a Celebrant Led Wedding in Lanzarote is that there are no restraints to the ceremony content.

We as Celebrants embrace all traditions, cultures and beliefs.

Being a creative writer, I enjoy research, and I embrace every chance to develop my skills and knowledge.
