If you’re not of the Catholic faith, a legal marriage must be obtained through a registry office in your home country before or after the non-legal ceremony in Mallorca. However, if either party is registered in the Palma municipality, the City Council of Palma offers a meeting room for the ceremony at an administration fee of 70 euros or 150 euros if neither party is registered there.
For those of the Roman Catholic faith seeking to marry in a Catholic church, non-residents are permitted to do so, but the process must begin early with the local church providing assistance with the necessary paperwork. Typically, churches charge around 500-700 euros to cover documentation and the priest’s ceremony fee.
While indoor civil ceremonies are required by law in Spain, non-legal blessings are unrestricted and can be held at the wedding venue of your choosing. In Palma, an exceptional master of ceremonies can cost between 150 to 350 euros, leaving guests and the couple speechless and emotionally moved.
