By entering into this Agreement, you have agreed for Bride Gibraltar to act in the capacity of online wedding planner on your behalf. We offer an online service and are also available for telephone consultations. We are UK based, ATOL bonded, members of IATA and have been arranging destination weddings in Gibraltar since 2005 and holidays in Gibraltar since 1994. Local representation in Gibraltar, if required, is available upon request and is chargeable.
Bride Gibraltar will make all wedding arrangements on your behalf as per your specific instructions including but not limited to booking flights, hotels, local transfers, airport parking, airport lounge, overnight airport hotel, arrangement of all legalities & paperwork, pre-wedding meetings, provision of witnesses, flowers, photography, beauty services, entertainment, wedding cake, wedding car, wedding invitation design and print, venue hire, venue décor, wedding favours, catering and drinks receptions, wedding insurance, excursions, wedding guest packages and honeymoons.
Wedding dates and times are subject to availability with the Gibraltar Registry Office. Ceremony and reception venues are subject to availability of the venue provider concerned. Early booking is recommended due to the limited number of such dates and venues in Gibraltar.
The date and time of your ceremony and/or reception; hotel; flights and all wedding services booked will be on a confirmed basis prior to your arrival in Gibraltar. You will receive a final wedding schedule detailing all that is booked for you including contact details of all relevant suppliers. Any changes to any of the above will only be made if deemed absolutely necessary, unavoidable and at the discretion of the Registrar/Minister in charge or by the Gibraltar Registry Office, venue providers, other third parties involved or unavoidable circumstances due to unforeseen circumstances such as emergency rennovation works, illness, force majeure or Act of God.
Such changes will be notified to you as far in advance as possible with alternative options in place. Any additional costs that arise as a result of any changes out of our control will be borne by you. If any changes are made by Bride Gibraltar directly and not by the suppliers, the cost of such will be borne by us.
You may not enter into any direct negotiations or contract with any of Bride Gibraltar’s suppliers or vendor providers for services included in your wedding package. Should this occur, we shall consider this to be a breach of contract and the contract may be immediately considered null and void; all suppliers will be notified of the cancellation and all payments made towards securing wedding services as made by Bride Gibraltar will be forfeited. You will also be liable to settle all outstanding charges due to Bride Gibraltar.
You agree to make all payments due to Bride Gibraltar as per the below agreed timelines. Missed payments may result in a service/s being cancelled. Contracts (save those between the airline and the passenger) are between the client and Bride Gibraltar. Should your flight be delayed, disrupted or cancelled completely, the airline will offer you alternatives directly. We shall do our best to rearrange accommodation and other components of your package accordingly and any extra costs incurred as a result of this will be borne by you. Travel and wedding insurance is highly recommended for such eventualities.
In preparing wedding schedules and services we have relied upon information given to us by our suppliers. Whilst we believe any representations to be true we cannot accept liability for any false representation or breach of implied warranties of any kind as to the facilities on offer and we shall not accept liability for any loss arising from any cause save to the extent that we have been in breach of these terms and conditions. Bride Gibraltar are not held liable for any loss or damage of equipment. Bride Gibraltar do not include any insurance for any wedding, entertainment or activities which are confirmed through us. Clients are liable to ensure that they have made sufficient insurance arrangements and take part in activities and events at their own risk.
Having booked your wedding date with us, we shall then require copies of all relevant documents as required by the registrar’s office to be sent to us within 7 days of making the booking and no later than 12 weeks prior to the wedding (or sooner if the wedding date is within 4 weeks) in one of the following ways:
2. By recorded post to : Kay Sharma, Bride Gibraltar, Vacation House, 372-374 Cranbrook Road, Gants Hill, Ilford, Essex, IG2 6HW, UK.
The originals of all documents must be presented to the Commissioner of Oaths where you will swear affidavits as to your eligibility for marriage followed by submission of the signed affidavits to the Marriage Clerk upon arrival at the registry office during your pre-wedding meeting in Gibraltar. Please note that the wedding ceremony cannot be performed unless the original certificates have been presented to the local authorities no less than 24 hours (business days only) prior to the set wedding date and time. All documents must be in the English language. Any translations must be certified by a Gibraltar lawyer to be true translations. Both the foreign language and English language documents must be presented together. Any copies of documents must be certified by a Gibraltar lawyer to be true copies.
Please ensure that you are available in Gibraltar within the stipulated time period in order to comply with timelines and guidelines of the pre wedding meetings. If you have chosen a Church wedding, you need to be in Gibraltar at least 4 business days prior to the wedding date. Any failure to provide the originals of all documents in the manner prescribed may result in no marriage taking place and we cannot be held responsible for any losses or additional costs incurred to rebook the wedding.
Eligibility for Marriage:
To be married in Gibraltar, a number of documents must be produced in original form. However, no restrictions are made on religious or other nationality grounds providing both parties can prove beyond a doubt who they are. You will need to satisfy the registrar that you are both free to marry. Following is a list of required documents for your information. Please read carefully and contact us if you have any queries.
Both valid passports with any necessary visas required to enter Gibraltar (at least 6 months' validity remaining)
Full version birth certificates showing both parents' names
If divorced, the decree absolute and previous marriage certificate (of most recent marriage)
If widowed, the death certificate of the deceased spouse
If adopted or changed your name by deed poll or some other way, the relevant certificate/s

If you are under the age of 18, the written consent of both your parents or legal guardians. Minimum age to marry in Gibraltar is 16

All documents must be in original, in English and any copies or translations must be certified to be true copies and/or translations. The original foreign language documents must also be provided together with the translations.
We would also strongly recommend that you independently arrange a wedding and travel insurance to cover your expenses. Bride Gibraltar cannot be held responsible for any original documentation that is delayed or lost in the post nor for any failure by suppliers to provide what is booked such as closure of a facility, service, venue or hotel room due to necessary works, rennovation or other. Bride Gibraltar can also not be held liable in the event of any cancellations, changes or delays caused by inclement weather or other such unforseen circumstances.
We request you to make timely payments as per the agreed contract. Missed payments may result in some or all of the services being cancelled.
All payments are to be made to Bride Gibraltar unless otherwise specified and in advance of your arrival in Gibraltar.
The quoted package price for weddings is subject to change depending on outside factors up until the day we receive the full & final payment. Following receipt of full monies, your booking will not be subject to any price fluctuations unless they are outside of Bride Gibraltar’s control and due to unavoidable circumstances such as those caused by emergency works, force majeure or Act of God.
The prices shown are correct at the date shown on the quote but if our facility or service costs should increase significantly (after acceptance of your booking but before full payment is made) resulting in increased charges we will notify you in writing of the increase as soon as possible. If you wish to cancel at this stage, you may do so within seven days of notification. A refund will be made of all refundable components less any cancellation fees incurred for the unaffected services booked.
Once a booking form has been submitted and confirmation/acceptance has been received from you, a non-refundable deposit is required before any reservations can be made on a definite basis.
You may pay with a credit or debit card or make a bank transfer direct to our UK account. We also accept online payment via World Pay. Please note if you miss a payment or make a late payment, this may affect the availability of your preferred supplier. In such cases, we shall endeavour to rebook an alternative supplier and any difference in price will be borne by you.
Your wedding guests may book directly with Bride Gibraltar on our preferential rates/allocation of rooms in which case their contract is directly with Bride Gibraltar and they are responsible for all payments to be made and on time. If you are booking on behalf of a wedding guest, then the contract will be between you and Bride Gibraltar on the guests’ behalf and you will be responsible to ensure all payments are made on time. In the event of a cancellation or missed payments by a guest where you have booked on his/her behalf, you will remain liable to pay any overdue amounts for non-refundable components of their package and any shortfall not met will be adjusted from your payments towards your wedding package.
All deposit payments made are strictly non-refundable. The amount of the deposit to be paid is determined by the value of the package & the amounts required by the suppliers to confirm the requested services, products and venues.
If you wish to cancel the wedding altogether, the following policy applies:
12 weeks or less prior to the wedding date: no refund
More than 12 weeks prior to the wedding date: if the wedding schedule is not yet issued, a partial refund may be available after deducting the non-refundable deposit, any flights & hotels booked and less any payments made to suppliers to book the chosen marriage and reception venue and/or other services.
In the event any other payments have been made on your behalf including the processing of documents or other service, this will be non-refundable.
In addition to this, we shall also charge a flat fee of 15% of the package price for our services rendered to you as wedding coordinator.
