Joss & Alex's Guludo Wedding

After visiting Guludo in October 2014, Joss and Alex decided to say their wedding vows on Guludo's shores. The ceremony, led by our very own Amisse and Angelica, was beautifully simple and intimate. Above all, it was joyous celebration of their relationship; not just for the happy couple and their families but for the whole Guludo team who put their hearts and souls into making the day perfect.

In Joss' own words...

"We hired out the lodge exclusively for the week of our wedding ceremony. Owner, Amy, and on-site managers, Marta and Tiago, went out of their way to make sure we had the wedding we had been dreaming of.

The beach was the perfect location for our relaxed ceremony.

"Two of the staff members, Amisse and Angela, conducted the ceremony for us, and the help of others in handing out wedding favours, hanging up fairy lights, making our arch etc (all the set-up stuff that can make a wedding a bit stressful!) was hugely appreciated and always done with a smile.

We were served the most delicious banquet for our wedding meal (lobster, chicken and a variety of veg dishes, complete with homemade wedding cake)

"All the food during our stay was delicious and it's lovely waking up to freshly baked bread every morning. They catered fantastically for dietary requirements and special requests. Marta arranged for a local band to provide the music during the ceremony and for our evening party - they were fantastic! We heard them play during our previous visit and I really recommend asking whether this could be arranged if you enjoy African music and dancing - we all had a great time dancing the night away!

What really makes Guludo special though and sets it apart from other lodges in Mozambique and beyond, is the staff.

"I can’t say nice enough things about them - they’re all so welcoming, friendly and helpful and you leave Guludo feeling like you’ve built relationships, not just had a bit of small-talk with people you'll forget as soon as you get home. I hope they don’t lose their charm - it’s a fine balance to strike between top quality service and the endearing nature that comes with no formal training, but they have achieved it perfectly!"
