Deciding on the entertainment you are going to provide your guests (and yourselves) with during your wedding is very much reliant on the theme and the venue of the wedding itself. You need to consider logistics and see if the ten piece band you were initially thinking of hiring fits on the tiny stage provided at the venue of your choice.

Apart from space, even the style of the wedding can pretty much determine the type of entertainment you provide. For instance if you are going to have an intimate lunch at a fancy restaurant, then you wouldn’t attempt to hire a full blown band with acoustic drums. Rather you would tend to go for an acoustic duo or trio which generally consist of vocals, piano or guitar and percussion.

One of the things you need to make sure of when booking a venue which will host some form of wedding entertainment is that of checking if there are any noise restrictions. This generally happens when the venue booked is within a hotel. In this way, the hotel secures that the people currently staying there have a pleasant stay which is not disrupted by loud music during the late hours of the night. Moreover, checking the exact time you need to turn down the loudness of your music or switch it off completely is a must. This depends very much on the location of the venue, especially if it is found in the middle of a village with houses surrounding it.

Truth of the matter is, Malta boasts a large number of different musicians, bands, choirs and djs that can make your special day even more special. Therefore, if you’re thinking about organising your wedding in Malta, rest assured you will find the right entertainment of your choice!

Coming from a rich historical background and an ever growing and homey culture, Malta and Gozo boast a large number of historical venues as well as quirky streets, stunning views and marvellous country side. Below find our top five locations for your upcoming wedding photoshoot that will leave you with some jaw dropping photos to cherish for years to come. 


  1. 1. Popeyes Village, Malta 

If youre planning a rustic wedding, this sweet village based on classic childhood cartoon Popeye the Sailor Man is exactly what youre looking for. The colourful wooden buildings sitting right next to the lovely Anchor Beach are just the start of the beauty this setting can add to your photoshoot. 


2. Blue Lagoon, Kemmuna 


If you love the sea, then Maltas Blue Lagoon is one destination you dont want to miss. Located at the tiny island of Kemmuna, the crystal blue sea is a view to die for. 


3. Ghasri Valley, Gozo 


Gozo holds a large number of gems but one which we hold very close to heart is the Ghasri Valley. The lovely sky blue gorge goes along 250 metres of land before it reaches the open sea. Lets face it, such a backdrop to your wedding photo will make everyones jaw drop. 


4. CitadellaGozo 


The ancient capital city of Gozo is full of history and beauty. The second you step foot inside the fortress that used to guard the island so magnificently in the past, you will immediately feel like youre part of the islands’ history and heritage. Take photos with the church, old law court, the fortress’ green pathways and characteristic stone walls, as you soak in the beauty of the hills and greenery that make up much of Gozos land beneath you. 


5. Marsaxlokk, Malta 


Known as the fishing village, Marsaxlokk is not only famous for its Sunday fish market, but it is also a beautiful place to use as a location for your wedding photoshoot. The village that is wonderfully located right next to the sea will give you the opportunity to use one of Maltas traditional boats - the Luzzu in your photos. Moreover, the village boasts quirky streets with colourful doors and stunning countryside views.

It wouldn't be the first time a bride asks someone she trusts and loves to be her bridesmaid and something happens that causes the bride and her chosen bridesmaid to drift apart. This is why you need to make sure the people you're asking to be part of your bridal party are there to stay. But how could you know this for sure? What do you need to ask yourself?


First you need to make sure you know why you want these people in your bridal party. While some options are obvious, especially when involving your sister or sisters-in-law, others might seem forced. You might believe that because you've known someone for a long time, or because they chose you to be part of their bridal party, you owe it to them to include them in your own wedding preparations. At the end of the day, this is YOUR wedding day and so it is YOUR choice as to whom will get the chance to accompany you on your special day.


Moreover, when including your friends as part of the bridal party, you need to analyse their character and how able they are to handle stress and let go when an argument occurs. If you know someone is hot headed, has a tendency of bailing on you, or does not have the slightest of clues as to how to compromise, then you might want to opt out of choosing them to be part of your bridal party. On top of this, if you can tell someone won't be in your life for the long haul, then do you really want them to be in all the preparations, photos and videos of your special day? But then again, many times it is hard to predict the future.


Another thing you need to make sure of is this: do you think all the members of the bridal party can get along together? If you know two or more of the members don't agree on anything and just love to pick at each other, then it might be an option to opt out of having both of them in the group. Additionally, do take note on the groom's wishes and make sure the members of the bridal party get along with him well enough.


Finally, make sure that the people you choose will be willing to contribute to the planning and can help you out when you get stuck. If you know someone won't manage to be a helping hand, you might want to look elsewhere.
