Lying virtually at the centre of the Mediterranean is the Maltese archipelago, the perfect backdrop for your memorable destination wedding. It may be hard to imagine that these islands covering just over 300km² in land, and with a total population of 400,000, can offer so many cultural, natural and artistic treasures. Blessed with a mild climate and set in crystal waters, it is no wonder that the Maltese Islands have been dubbed as the Mediterrenean’s best kept secret.
Malta, as the largest island, is the commercial, cultural and administrative hub of the archipelago. Visitors are taken in by Gozo’s – Malta’s sister island – more leisurely rhythm and rural landscape. Comino, remaining largely uninhabited, offers incomparable clear Mediterrenean waters.
These Mediterrenean islands are renowned for the sun and the sea. The sun lights up every lane and alley, even during the winter months. This is reflected in the warm character of the Maltese people, and the traditional hospitality they are known for. The many civilisations that have gone through Malta for the past 7,000 years have left an edible mark on the islands. The islands’ architectural heritage will present an impressive backdrop to your wedding, starting from the megalithic temples – the oldest free-standing structures in the world – to the world-heritage site which is our capital city, Valletta. Malta is not short of churches either – whether baroque, neo-gothic or quaint medieval chapels, Malta has a church for every day of the year.
All this coupled with the convenient flight connections to the rest of the world, and the minimum of red tape for getting married, makes Malta and Gozo a haven for your destination wedding.
