To be married on a beach or any other area affected by the maritime-terrestrial territory, the parties must request the authorisation to occupy public maritime-terrestrial domain from the Territory and Sustainability Department of the Generalitat de Catalunya, which can be processed online.
Prior to the resolution of the authorisation request, the Coastal Service must request the report from the municipal government where the parties wish to conduct the activity, and the service shall decide whether to award the permit within a one-month period.
Prior to starting the request, the following restrictions to be applied must be taken into account:
- Beach wedding ceremonies are not authorised from 1 July to 31 August.
- From 15 to 30 June and from 1 to 26 September, beach wedding ceremonies are only allowed on weekdays.
- The requests to celebrate a marriage on one of the beaches from the municipality of Palafrugell will only be accepted if one of the partners is registered in Palafrugell, or if the banquet after the ceremony is held in one of the municipality’s accommodations or restaurants, which must be confirmed with an approved quote (deposit payment proof must be shown) or with a confirmation letter from the selected company.
- If the request which arrives to the Palafrugell municipal government complies with these restrictions, its features will be studied and, if no other scheduled activity impedes the ceremony, the request will be accepted.
