Getting married abroad is on the rise, with an estimated one in four British couples taking to the skies to celebrate their ceremony on foreign shores. Amongst their favourite destinations is the inimitable Cape Verde, a collection of ten unique Islands, just off the west coast of Africa and it’s not hard to see why. Not only does the archipelago offer a stress-free experience, as per their enviable way of life, we are able to present a variety of options for your venue. Each is just as stunning as the next.
It is important to note that visitors must be on the Islands for 30 days for a civil wedding to take place but couples can enjoy a blessing ceremony before or after their UK wedding.
On one of our Sal Island Resorts
The Resort Group has established Resorts on the Island of Sal, from the quiet MELIÃ Tortuga Beach Resort and the family-friendly MELIÃ Dunas Beach Resort & Spa/Sol Dunas to the adults-only MELIÃ Llana Beach Resort & Spa and TUI Sensimar Cabo Verde. There’s something for every couple. The hospitality services on Resort can provide you with all you need to create the perfect day including a pre-ceremony pamper, hair and make-up, floral arrangements, wedding cake and photography. We don’t forget about the all-important after party too with a range of bars and restaurants from which to choose.
On the Beach
There’s little more spectacular than a beach wedding, especially when you add Sal’s famous sunsets into the mix. Picture yourself on the soft white sands with the tide lapping the shore, surrounded by your loved ones. The best news is that all of the above can still be arranged if you choose to hold your ceremony on the beach by our Resorts instead of the Wedding Pavilion.
