Although wedding ceremonies are becoming more popular with couples looking to have a beach ceremony somewhere hot, there are of course those that may also be looking for a place in the sun, a second home, somewhere they can go to escape the cold weather at home or just for a family holiday abroad.
In January 2017 one couple were here doing just that, looking for property on Sal Island and, to help them along with this were the team from 'A Place in the Sun' with TV presenter Jasmine Harman. I was fortunate to be asked to appear on the show and met up with the couple Lynne and Brett shortly before filming commenced. I was asked questions about Santa Maria, which I tried to answer truthfully and without sounding like a nervous wreck. So this is my introduction to everyone with the four of us in the photo below, myself in black and white standing on the left.
The choice of island for beach ceremonies for tourists in Cape Verde is currently mainly offered on the island of Sal. As the Cape Verde islands become more popular with young and old, a number of tour operators, agencies and local entrepreneurs are trying to provide what tourists need or are looking for, by offering a number of interesting options. We offer our wedding services on the main tourist destination island of Sal.
Within our information pages about our wedding services, you can find further information about each service, the venues we use and we provide helpful suggestions on things you may wish to consider before you book your holiday in Cape Verde. We do not offer package deals, more bespoke wedding services within Santa Maria, Sal.
We have wedding info that is also held within a secure zone. To access the secure zone information you will be required to complete the wedding inquiry form for a service on Sal Island. However this does not commit you to using our service but we will contact you to enquire whether you are interested in our services and we will take it from there.
The sliding images at the top of this page are some of the marriage blessing ceremonies we arranged at venues in Santa Maria for couples
and their guests.
