How To Arrange a Legal Catholic Church Wedding Ceremonies in Mallorca

For fully baptized Roman Catholics (only one half of the couple needs to be Catholic), legal church ceremonies are possible here in Mallorca for foreigners.

At first it may seem rather daunting to try to organize but in reality, yes, it may take a little more effort than a civil blessing, but it is totally possible and actually with Us on your side it can be an easy and straightforward process.

The first step is for us to secure your wedding date and reception venue and then following that pick your favourite nearby church. We will contact the church here in Mallorca to secure your date, shortly following this we will need to arrange the payment of the church admin fee which is typically around 400-600€. You may need to visit the church admin team in person. We will advise you whether you need to attend the meeting or whether we can do it on your behalf. This varies from church to church. Simultaneously you need to contact your home country priest** and ask his permission for you to marry abroad/to grant you freedom to marry.

You will then need to submit these documents to your home priest:

  • Birth certificates
  • Certificates of Baptism. This must be issued no more than 6 months before the wedding date and need to be authenticated by the Bishopric
  • Proof of freedom to marry** Also authenticated by the Bishopric
  • Certificate of marriage preparation course- you should ask your local home priest about this. There are face to face options and online options.
  • Tell your priest your intended date, time and location of the church where you plan to have your wedding ceremony in Mallorca
  • If only one of you is Catholic then your local priest must also issue a dispensation and this must be attached to the paperwork.

ALL OF THESE DOCUMENTS MUST BE LEGALLY TRANSLATED INTO SPANISH AND STAMPED WITH HAGUE APOSTILE which can be done at the following url for UK clients. All of these documents are then sent by your home priest to the Bishopric Spain who will in turn send it to the Bishopric in the province in Spain where you intend to marry (Mallorca for example).


** This can be established through any of the parishes the person has lived in for six months or more since he/she was 18 years of age, or your home priest in your town of birth. In this case if you do not live there any more, a family member i.e. a parent could make the request on your behalf.

Once all the paperwork has arrived here in Mallorca and been submitted, we will collect the relevant papers needed for the ceremony on your behalf and deliver them to the Englishç speaking priest who will perform your marriage.

After your ceremony, we will collect the marriage license and certificate for you and ensure it's brought to you in Mallorca if you are still here or sent to you at your home address.

We will also need to book the English-speaking priest who will conduct the mass for you. His cost for this is normally around 400€. You can bring a priest from the UK but we do not advise it, it's proven more complicated in the past.
