Indisputably the Maltese Islands are an outstanding location for both local and foreign weddings. The islands have all the right ingredients for the most romantic wedding recipe, whatever your particular taste. The island’s brave and colourful history lends itself to setting the most dramatic scene for a wedding, with the iconic architecture evident in every corner of the islands.

Malta is regarded as one of the most friendly and safe countries in the world – appealing to those who are keen in finding a suitable foreign destination. The crystal blue waters surrounding the islands bring the perfect photo opportunity, and of course the climate – rated as one of the best in the world – is an instant advantage.

Increasingly however, brides-to-be, grooms-in-waiting and relevant family members are steering away from the peak weddings seasons and the height of summer, and looking to Winter Weddings as a viable alternative. This may be for a variety of reasons; weather is certainly a key factor; Maltese winters are lush and picturesque with green fields and winter flowers, and whilst sunshine is not guaranteed, wedding parties are not in fear of the intense heat of the Maltese summer, and the effect this might have on the guests.

Husbands-and-Brides-to-be certainly have more options available in the shoulder months, with venues, caterers, entertainment, florists and other wedding suppliers enjoying the freedom of a less intense booking schedule and therefore able to be more flexible. For some services, price also plays a role. Winter weddings also offer some cost saving options – certainly for those travelling to Malta to get married. Flights and accommodation are undoubtedly cheaper off-season.

"The venue boasts a scenic setting, surrounded by fields and a perfectly restored building but with all the modern conveniences you would expect from a wedding venue."
High season weddings however can rely on the almost-guaranteed-weather to make any wedding occasion stunning. The impact of a winter wedding however relies on quality of the venue. Whilst Malta has a large number of excellent hotels and venues, once inside it is easy to forget that you are in Malta – one hotel of an established chain, looks very much the same as another, no matter which country you are in.

The venue caters for the needs of all guests, the court yard provides the perfect dance floor, the upper level is great for guests who want to chat on a sofa whilst still being able to watch the party revellers and The Library gives the older guests somewhere to rest their feet and chat. Ample outdoor space surrounding the venue provides limitless parking, along with photo opportunity options.

Perhaps the true gem of the location, lies in The Vault; the subterranean venue adjoining The Club House. Without fail, guests to the venue simply mouth the word ‘wow!’ as they descend into the completely unique and one-of-a-kind venue, originally the stables serving the hunting lodge above. The Vault provides the perfect location for a wedding after party. Once the older guests have headed home, the party crowd can head to the dance floor in The Vault with their DJ guiding them into the early hours. No one ever forgets a party in The Vault.

Of course, any description can set the scene for a bride and groom, but visiting the venue will most certainly capture your imagination. Drop the team a line on 9974 8923 or [email protected] to book your show round
