Why Malta?

Saying your I DO’s in the heart of the Mediterranean…

Having a destination wedding in the Maltese Islands allows you to exchange vows in a stunning paradise. Whether you envision your ceremony on a sandy beach, atop a cliff overlooking the stunning Mediterranean Sea, within a blooming garden, or in one of the numerous historical attractions, the options for a destination wedding in Malta are as limitless as your imagination.

 A destination wedding in Malta combines the sweetness of a ceremony together with the excitement of a sunny vacation!

Malta and its sister island of Gozo, are many a times taken for granted due to their small size (just 316 sq km). Due to its strategic location and subsequently vast history, the archipelago boasts of a diverse heritage from the world’s oldest surviving freestanding structures to the romantic Old City of Mdina.  Its influences vary from North Africa to Southern Italy, which in particular inspired the local cuisine.  Malta is a very safe country, thus a very family friendly destination and offers plenty to keep visitors entertained.

The sunny Mediterranean climate keeps the average temperature at around 18ºC. It can reach 35ºC in summer but 12ºC is about as cold as its gets in winter.  Sunsets can be spectacular with magnificent pastel displays.

Marriage legalities in Malta are considered as relatively easy, thus making it more realistic to embark on a destination wedding. Although the basic paperwork is still required, it is a relief to know that no residency requirements or any pre-requisites regarding various religions are needed. (refer to section Legal Requirements for a detailed outline of what getting married in Malta legally entails)

There is so much to do on the islands that wedding guests will be endlessly entertained. Malta is a really impressive place, just perfect for a once-in-a-lifetime destination wedding.

  • Firstly, I just wanted to say how lovely it was meeting you, Mauro and the rest of your team and to thank you. Both Andre and I were so impressed with everything you did for Annez and Gio's beautiful wedding on the Salt Pans in Gozo - every detail was taken care of so thoughtfully and we were absolutely blown away by the venue, and of course how it was setup and dressed for their wedding day! It was simply breath-taking and that light (honestly, Andre and I could not get enough of it, which you may have noticed!!). You and your team took such good care of Annez, Gio and the wedding party and nothing was too much trouble. I especially liked your approach to the bride as its very similar to my own (that you are present and in the background, never rushing or stressing the bride or the bridal party). And thank you also for driving me to the Salt Pans - it certainly made it less stressful for me and I really appreciate that! As as for the venue at night - now that really had the 'wow' factor - absolutely magical, both for the guests and the lenses on our cameras :-)

  • Excellent. Nothing but Praise for Petra, Mauro and all the team at I DO KNOT. We celebrated our ruby wedding anniversary in Malta and I DO KNOT arranged everything for us and our 18 guests from Ireland and England. Such hard work and professionalism provided us with a unique 're proposal event' full church service, hotel, entertainment events etc. The I DO KNOT team were there for us, for all the whole 2 weeks and made it such a wonderful event that will never be forgot by the whole party. Feel free to ask them for more details of our functions they provided and you will see exactly how good they are and what such nice people they are and clearly a credit to the people of Malta. They deserve the awards they have achieved so far and Im sure there will be many more.

  • I would recommend Petra and her "I Do Knot" team to everyone! As getting married in Malta was a really last minute decision, Petra was super fast in providing us with best options and deals! I reached out to few companies, but Petra was outstanding and stood out right away! Could not be more thankful. And this comes from a wedding planner herself. If I trusted our day to her, anyone can!

  • I cannot recommend Petra Gasan and her I Do Knot team highly enough! Petra planned the perfect fairytale wedding for us in Malta last month. We are so happy we had Petra as our wedding planner, from start to finish she was there, answering every question promptly, taking in our vision of our wedding and our ideas and coming up with great suggestions and ideas herself. Petra suggested the perfect church and reception for our big day, and organised every detail of our wedding faultlessly. Our guests were so impressed with Petra and her team on the day of our wedding, as were we, as she co ordinated everything without a hitch. It was a relaxing and stress free day as Petra and her team dealt with everything and left us with nothing to worry about. We are delighted with our wedding and have great memories of our special day to look back upon thanks to Petra, we could not have done it without her ! :-)
