One of the best reasons for marrying in the Canary Islands is the fantastic climate, considered to be one of the best in the world, with an average year-round temperature of 18-24oC and cloudless skies almost guaranteed. Few countries around the world can offer such perfect weather. You will be spoiled for choice at the long list of stunning, unforgettable and romantic wedding locations the islands have to offer from the grounds of beautiful hotels, or set against the amazing landscapes to ceremonies down on those breathtaking beaches.
A wedding ceremony in the Canary Islands is guaranteed to be a beautiful occasion. However, because the Canary Islands follow Spanish law, marriage of foreigners, including UK citizens, is not currently legal. But donâ€™t let that put you off. You can still take advantage of having a beautiful blessing ceremony, without having to worry about applying for a Marriage License, having the correct documents and getting them translated. We recommend that you apply to marry in the UK with a civil wedding at your local registry office before you leave for your blessing. You are then free to travel to the Canary Islands and enjoy a totally romantic symbolic wedding ceremony
