What a wedding in such a beautiful place! Ever dreamt of getting married in Mallorca? Here we are in Mallorca, Balearic Islands, Spain. When I received this email from Sarah: « […] We are looking for a destination wedding videographer who does a cinema style, emotional and fun to watch wedding film and we LOVE your films. They are amazing! We already talked to a couple of videographers but we just didn’t feel like we absolutely loved the videos. So our questions: are you still available […] », I could say no! I’m specialized indestination weddings, so flying to Mallorca was a beautiful opportunity.
More than just travelling to an amazing place, I discovered a really touching couple, Sarah & Richi. Smiling, kind, friendly, I loved spending these two days with this couple and their families. During our skype conversations I felt that there was something interesting I could tell about their story. And rather than just doing a classic « wedding video », I proposed them to tell a part of their story on the images of their wedding. They were so happy to leave a record to their loved one and their daughter. This is the story of Sarah & Richi.

Among these four, two are deemed to be the most perfect wedding destinations. You can either have a destination Mallorca or an Ibiza wedding. Both are incredibly famous among couples who are planning to tie the knot. Find out which one suits you best with this guide.
CHOOSING MALLORCA FOR YOUR WEDDING DAY
It is no wonder Mallorca is considered by couples to be famous for hosting a destination wedding in the Balearic islands since it is the largest and geographically most diverse island of them all.

Imagine yourself saying your vows on top of a mountain? Having a destination wedding Mallorca will turn that vision into a reality. The island has two mountain ranges – Serra de Tramuntana in the west, a UNESCO World Heritage Site; and Serres de Llevant on the east. You will have a memorable wedding experience in this location with seemingly endless sunshine all year round.
BEST TIME TO GET MARRIED IN MALLORCA
Having your celebration of love on the island of Mallorca will require a year of planning since it is such a famous wedding spot. You wouldn’t want your destination wedding Mallorca to get postponed because you end up losing your preferred venue when someone else books it first. The most popular time is between April-October. But if you’re planning to have your marriage in June or September, you must book even earlier. Hiring a destination wedding videographer is also recommended as the professional needs preparation time.
