Weddings

The Gibraltar Botanic Gardens are one of Gibraltar’s premier venues for registry weddings during the spring and summer.

Venues

Our most popular venue for weddings is The Dell, where we can accommodate up to fifteen guests.  If you are expecting more guests, then they can watch from the bridge, which lies a few metres across from the venue and affords a good view.

The Dell

We provide two large sun umbrellas to provide shelter from the sun.  We also provide a 60″ x 30″ (150 x 75cm) table and two chairs, for the bride and groom.  If the couple wishes, they may supply a tablecloth and floral arrangement to dress up the table.  This can be done on the same day as the wedding, fifteen minutes before the service.

You should notify us when booking if you are expecting more than fifteen guests at the wedding.

Larger weddings and wedding receptions can be accommodated in the Alameda Open Air Theatre.  Also available for smaller, short receptions is The Lions’ Pond. Separate schedules of charges apply. It is the responsibility of the wedding party to make arrangements with their own photographer.

Wedding Photographs

The Dell can also be hired for wedding photographs.  It is the responsibility of the bride and groom to make arrangements with their own photographer and the fee is for the hire of the venue alone.  Only the bride, groom and photographer will be allowed access.

Rules

Drinking, smoking and eating are not allowed in The Dell.  We thank you also for not using confetti; rice can be used as an alternative as this is biodegradable and feeds the birds.
