The best time for your wedding in Madeira…
Anytime! Indeed, its always mild climate, ranges from 26º in summer to 16º in winter and it welcomes tourists during all times of the year.
Madeira is a paradise to marry, both for those couples who want to escape the cold and for those who want to also avoid the scorching heat of summer. The weather is perfect!
Your ceremony on the coast
Because those beaches, viewpoints and cliffs have a magnificent beauty! The warm colors of the rocks of the cliffs stand out over the blue of the sea and the tones that shape the sunset are absolutely beautiful.
This is a place with spectacular views that would be perfect for your photos! One of our favorite spots is Almada, overlooking the bay of Funchal and where you can see the statue of Christ the King, very similar to the Rio de Janeiro and Cabo Girão’s one, where is the second highest cliff in the world. 600 meters of water falling non-stop! It’s a big wedding!
Beside the beaches you can also find natural pools of salt water and crystal clear that are a totally paradisiacal place with perfect views to promise an eternal love.
Your wedding can takes place also inside!
Madeira is not only water, sand, rocks and cliffs. Madeira has also a completely different landscape from the coast: the mountains, the forests, the agricultural terraces, the parks and the gardens.
A series of places whose landscapes will carry away you immediately to a movie scene, such as the lush forests of Laurisilva, declared World Heritage by UNESCO, native flowers of all shapes and colors, swans, ducks…
Enter in the exoticism of Madeira to say “I do” to your partner!
A very tropical feast
The fact is that Madeira, as a good tropical island, has typical products of the area, such as exotic fruits, swordfish or tuna.
But if there is a dish par excellence that carry off the laurels, it’s the espetada which is veal meat cooked over the heat with garlic and salt on the grill that crumbles like a pincho moruno.
Therefore, at your feast, you can’t miss typical food from Faja do Padres or Cámara de Lobos, two of the most appetizing regions of Madeira.
