‘THE BALLAD OF JOHN AND YOKO’ RECALLED

WHEN MARRYING AT THE ROCK HOTEL ‘IN GIBRALTAR, NEAR SPAIN’. 

In ‘The Ballad of John and Yoko’, Lennon sings of getting ‘married in Gibraltar, near Spain’ and just as John Lennon and Yoko Ono headed to the British protectorate on March 20, 1969 for this purpose so have many, many other couples …including a certain Mr. and Mrs. Sean Connery.  

Well-known as a popular choice when marrying outside the UK, so too can Gibraltar play its part as a honeymoon destination - as a passport to two continents and several cultures. Only two and a half hours from London, Gibraltar provides a Mediterranean escape and is on the doorstep of the south of Spain and north Africa, too. 

Indeed, reflecting Gibraltar’s attractions for civil marriages and honeymoons, The Rock Hotel can perform memorably on both counts, also.  

The Rock Hotel offers several choice spots for both the ceremony itself and then the reception; whether it’s just the bridal couple at the nuptials, a small group of family and friends or a celebration for 100+ people “Might it be an evening poolside event that you are seeking or a daytime wedding, sheltering under a wisteria canopy?” suggests The Rock Hotel’s Toby Tobelem who has considerable experience in organising weddings that meet a bridal party’s very specific requirements. “Head indoors for your event during the cooler months and don’t forget that our terraces and gardens also provide just the setting for wedding photography.” 

If you need any third party endorsement of Toby’s words, simply click onto “Our wedding and celebration customers say…” at www.rockhotelgibraltar.com/weddings where you will read comments such as, “We recall you telling us a few months ago that our wedding day would be a great success. Actually, the day was better than we could ever have envisaged,” and, “We noticed that there were several other weddings taking place last week - yet at no point did we feel that we were just one amongst a number of bookings.” 

As Gibraltar’s pre-eminent hotel, The Rock captures a timeless charm (from the days of its opening in 1932) alongside the traditional values of customer care. Its Guest Book registers names such as Errol Flynn, Sir Winston Churchill, Sir John Mills and Dame Anna Neagle – to name a few who’ve been attracted by the Hotel’s British colonial style, blended with Spanish and Moroccan influences. Set within nine acres of terraced gardens, the104-bedroom, four-star hotel is within easy reach of Main Street yet elegantly set apart from the hustle and bustle of the town.  All-in-all, the prefect spot for a wedding!
