weddings

RELIGIOUS WEDDINGS


Non-residents can be married according to Catholic rites in a Catholic church. You will need to obtain the Nihil Obstat from your local diocese, signed by your
bishop, in order to be married in a Portuguese parish.


Your wedding planners can also arrange a celebrant for Protestant rites to marry you in a sacred location.


CIVIL WEDDINGS


Civil ceremonies may be celebrated in the Register office in Funchal. Please not that the office is not open
on Saturday, Sunday or Bank Holidays.


BLESSINGS


Blessings are ceremonies without legal or civil restrictions and are therefore performed by a Master of
Ceremonies, rather than a clergyman or state official. The ceremony suits couples who have already had a
civil or church ceremony, but is also perfect for those who wish to renew their wedding vows.
