Gran Canaria

Whether you are planning a winter wedding or a mid-summer ceremony, Gran Canaria is a fabulous wedding venue all year round.

If you want a winter sunshine wedding or honeymoon close to  home, then the Canary Islands, off the African coastline, is the perfect choice. Gran Canaria is one of the most popular of the islands and boasts heavenly beaches, rolling sand dunes and a superb year-round climate!

Gran Canaria is a volcanic island between Fuerteventura and Tenerife, just 210 kilometres away from the north African coast.It’s just a short hop from the UK, making it one of the closest winter sunshine destinations as well as being immensely popular for summer holidays.

The island is almost perfectly circular, the other characteristic is that it is blessed with exquisite beaches – most with white sand, including the impressive Maspalomas Beach with its spectacular sand dunes and the lively Las Canteras beach in Las Palmas.

Gran Canaria is an island of diversity with a variety of landscapes and landmarks – ranging from lush forests, exotic flora and fauna, Sahara-like dunes, mountains, volcanic craters, the odd flurry of snow on the highest peaks and the dynamic capital of Las Palmas to incredibly beautiful coastlines and spectacular beaches, offering you an enormous choice when planning your wedding venue, and ensuring that there will never be a dull moment.

Northern Gran canaria is lush and green as it has more rainfall, whereas the arid south is dry and sunny throughout the year.

The south has stunning, fun-packed resorts including: Meloneras ­where you can walk along the promenade and shop in high-end designer stores; Playa del Inglés – top up your tan on the beach by day then enjoy pulsating nightlife; Maspalomas – the sand dunes here are a sight to behold, stretching along the coast like giant waves of sand; Puerto de Mogán – a picturesque fishing resort known as Little Venice, with canals and quaint bridges; And of course the vibrant capital of Las Palmas.The island’s superb climate ensures that the sea is warm enough for bathing all year round.

"We always said that we would get married abroad but I didn’t necessairily want a traditional beach wedding. It is something that we had previously spoken about so once Qamar had proposed we knew that’s what would happen."
