Can I legally get married in Spain?
Mallorca (or Majorca) is part of Spain, where weddings are typically conducted in two parts. The first part of the ceremony is the civil part – the legal formality. Unless one of you is Spanish, or a resident in Spain, this must be conducted in your own country before or after you fly to Mallorca.
