I have visited Malta first time in 2015. It was one of my first destination weddings. I have been officially a guest, but I couldn’t resist taking my camera as I was sure the wedding will be extremely beautiful. I was not disappointed.

Are you looking for something different?

Weddings here have been getting more popular in the recent years. Whether you’re after a beach wedding or a garden ceremony overlooking the sea, you’re sure to find something to suit your needs. With the sun shining all year around, the wedding here will be perfect even off season.

Malta, Gozo & Comino are Southern European Islands located in the Mediterranean sea, located 80km South of Italy. The country covers just over 316 km2, which makes it one of world’s smallest and most densely populated countries. The capital of Malta is Valletta, rich in history, containing buildings from 16th century onwards.

There are more churches in Malta, than there are days of the year. The parish churches are usually large and beautiful decorated with statues and some very impressive works of art & paintings.

One of the most famous churches are St. John’s Co-Cathedral, The Church of St Francis of Assisi, St Augustine Church and Our Lady of Victories.

When I was travelling to Malta for the first time, I have heard mixed reviews about the island. My friends either said it was boring, mainly suitable for seniors and some believed that Gozo is an island where you’ll be bored after a day or two. Don’t let anybody discourage you as there is plenty to do there; whether you’re traveling solo or with your loved one.

Maltese love their weddings. With plenty of wedding packages going, it’s a perfect wedding destination for locals and tourists. While the selection of photographers in Malta might not be as vast as in the UK for instance, there’s nothing stopping you from hiring a London Wedding Photographer who offers destination packages.

One of the most popular wedding Hotels in Malta are: Mellieha Bay Hotel, Le Meridien St. Julians, The Palace Hotel, Radisson Blu Resort and Hilton Malta. These hotels offer great standard and a selection of rooms, to ensure your guests will never be too far away from your wedding and at the same time, they are within a walking distance to the beaches, city centers and hundreds of restaurant/cafes.

What to do in Malta & Gozo?

Maltese waters are clear, beautiful and warm in Summer months (and especially around September when the season begins) for snorkeling & scuba diving. Gozo is especially popular for diving with tens of diving centers spread around the coast.

Malta offers some of the best diving in the Mediterranean, with around 50 000 divers visiting every year.

Valletta is easily accessible by bus and ferry from Sliema,  is a definite must-see with plenty of historical buildings, gardens, churches & museums. The Three Cities are within a short ferry ride away.

Nightlife in Malta can be very vibrant. Especially around Paceville and St. Julian’s where you’ll find plenty of bars, clubs & disco’s. I prefer the quiet side of the island, therefore I mainly stay around the Sliema area, which offers the best of both worlds. It is located within a walking distance from St. Julian’s (although saying that, nowhere in Malta is too far away).

There you have it; a rich cultural island, easily accessible from the UK, offering plenty of wedding packages, beautiful weather and things to do and see for just about anybody. A photographer, anyone?
