The reverend Eddie Martens is a minister who has retired to Spain but conducts ceremonies in this area for the protestant faith. Because of difficulties involved in trying to arrange church marriages, couples usually have a civil ceremony in Britain or Ireland and have a blessing in church here which Eddie does with both sincerity and humor. It is less complicated for the Catholic faith and indeed many weddings take place each year. A local priest in a nearby town is happy to marry British and Irish couples and we can put you in touch if required. Likewise many catholic couples get married elsewhere and have a blessing here in Spain followed by a reception for all their friends and family at Rebate.
