This is a symbolic wedding ceremony. A Simplicity package & service can be used by couples wanting a symbolic blessing, renewal of vows or love and devotion reading. It's at a fixed fee.
PLEASE NOTE: We do not provide chairs or a Pastor in with the 'Simplicity Package' service. Additional transport or other services will be at an additional cost.
This service is called 'Simplicity' because we keep it 'simple' and it's reasonably priced. It's what most people have requested, as couples can see what they are going to get for their Euros.
Once you have successfully submitted the enquiry form, we will contact you to request further information that we may need you to provide, before we can accept a reservation.
This package is aimed at couples who want a simple ceremony, no other equipment, decoration or furniture is provided other than what is in the Simplicity Package. Most of the ceremonies have been for 'Couples Only', however there have been some for those that have brought their children on holiday with them.
We use a 'Layperson' (one of our team) to deliver the reading. Most of the readings are delivered in the English language, however we have had some delivered in a few other languages but, this also depends on who is available to perform the readings and, the languages they speak!
The service and ceremony may be requested for a certain area of beach, however, we have some reasons why this may not be practical for us. Also, please not, that on occasions, we may discover there may be other conflicting arrangements or events taking place in the same area of beach that have been planned by others, that we have no knowledge of and are out of our control.
There are currently three venues (beach areas) at which we provide the 'Simplicity Package', the first being near (to the left of), Porto Antigo Residence, the second is near (to the left of), the Sal Hilton Hotel, the third being at Ponta Preta on the beach. There is a difference in price between one venue and the other two, due to additional transport required at one venue, which is just out of Santa Maria, on the west coast of Sal.
The three areas of beach are slightly different, one is on the beach to the side of a resort, another is to the side of a Hotel, the third is on the west coast and, more open to the elements. You can find more information within the Secure Zone, which includes prices and, the reasons why we don't provide our package at some other venues. You can access the Secure Zone after submitting the web enquiry form which you can find at the bottom of this page.
We use one of our team to take a number of memorable photos during the ceremony, they are not 'official wedding photographers'. You will normally receive 40-50 photos for a fixed fee.
The initial information we would require from you would be:
- The dates you are visiting Sal Island (from/to)?
- If you are you celebrating a certain event in your lives?
- Is there anyone travelling with you?
- Where you will be staying on Sal?
- If you provide us with information about yourselves on the enquiry form below, we can provide you with further information and then, related costs.
IMPORTANT NOTE: For those looking at a larger or 'bespoke' service, whereby you intend to invite 'Family and Friends' to your ceremony or prefer a Pastor from the Evangelical (Nazarene) Church to perform the ceremony (plus a translator), then the 'Simplicity Package' service is not for you. However, although we are no longer personally organising the larger 'Family and Friends' service, or arranging a Pastor for 'bespoke' services, we will put you in touch with our service partner with whom, you can make further enquiries.
PLEASE NOTE: We prefer communication initially, via our web enquiry form below, then follow up information by email. Those making Facebook or Messenger enquiries will be requested to contact us via our website.
