Religious Marriage Blessing

More formal religious ceremonies are performed by a Pastor of the Evangelical Church. The Pastor will use the Matrimonial ceremony reading of the Church of the Nazarene. The Pastor performs the reading in Portuguese, non-Portuguese speakers will need a translator.

Symbolic Ceremonies with Layperson

Ceremonies can be held at or near to venues. A Layperson is one of our team.

'Love and Devotion Reading'

If wanting a reading less religious or more symbolic for your own personal preference, in celebration of your commitment to one another, then perhaps a 'Love and Devotion' reading is something you would prefer.

The Evangelical Church

The Evangelical Church itself is simple. A few couples have chosen to have a blessing or renewal held there. Chris and Anne (photo on left) said it was more meaningful to them to have their marriage renewed by the Pastor at the Church and, had chosen Cape Verde as the place where they wanted to have their service.

The Evangelical Church (the Church of the Nazarene) is not recognised by Cape Verde Law for providing legal marriages on the islands, therefore this type of blessing cannot be registered or Notarised in Cape Verde or in most other countries.

Further info

The religious marriage blessing by the Evangelical Church is a marriage blessing which has been performed on the islands of Cape Verde for many years. The Pastor of the Evangelical Church has no legal power to marry couples in a Civil Marriage. He will however, bless the couple in a marriage ceremony in a ritual that symbolises a marriage.

If you are considering having a legal civil marriage performed in Cape Verde you would need to make enquiries in person at the Notary where  you can ask all the appropriate questions and make your own arrangements with them for your Civil ceremony.

We are not always able to respond to some requests instantly. Requests may require more detailed replies, research and contacting partners who also may not be able to respond instantly. We will get in touch with you as soon as possible. Our service partners will now provide further information about ceremony options on Sal Island.
