LEGALITIES WHEN GETTING MARRIED IN SPAIN
As a destination wedding videographer in Spain, based on my experience it is best to work with a wedding planner to sort any legalities. Usually, they vary according to areas, and planners are very familiar with them. For example, to obtain an official marriage certificate, the union must be first registered with local civil authorities. When it comes to religious ceremonies, there is no need for a second civil ceremony, and that is why many US and UK couples choose to do this kind of symbolic act while previously holding the civil marriage in their homeland.
AMENITIES FOR A SPANISH DESTINATION WEDDING
Most of the venues are easily accessible, packed with the most comfortable luxury, and offering so many other activities you can indulge in nearby. The breathtaking landscapes and diverse culture will easily elevate your whole experience, resulting in artful cinematic wedding videography that is hard to achieve anywhere else. No matter where, you will be able to taste their culinary arts, enjoy excellent wine, and enjoy a relaxed atmosphere which is perfect for a stress-free wedding experience! The weather is so warm, which if you are from the UK will surely appreciate. Plus with a 2-hour flight, you will be able to easily arrange the trip for your guests. Additionally, you can choose to spend a whole weekend and treat your guests to more activities besides the wedding. Together you can sightsee and explore locations that you’ve never seen before!
