Most of the ceremonies we organise take place 4p.m. or 5p.m. on the evening, giving the couple or the couple and their guests time to either return to their hotel to relax, or stay at the venue or another of their choice to have some refreshments before returning to their hotel. These arrangements have to be pre-organised.
You may also wish to consider checking out the restaurants in Santa Maria on Trip Advisor and book one of those yourself, before returning to your hotel. Or, casually turn up at a beach bar and enjoy a few beers, wines, soft drinks instead.
There may be further options for a seated buffet, or a sit down meal. We can discuss possibilities with you. Below we have provided a few photos of venues used by some couples after their wedding ceremony on Sal Island.
Buffet and cocktails for 12 people at after ceremony marriage blessing held at wedding venue on Sal Island, Cape Verde
One couple enjoy cocktails and canapes on the waters edge after their Love and Devotion reading on Sal Island, Cape Verde
Sit down meal for 10 people after wedding ceremony on the beach overlooking the ocean on Sal Island, Cape Verde.
You may also wish to consider if you would prefer to make your own arrangements with the hotel at which you are staying. One couple did just that, they asked us to arrange a ceremony for them on the beach at Santa Maria, then chose to have their reception at Sol Melia.
