Ideal for couples in search of a magical and romantic setting against a backdrop of ancient architecture, Ibo Island Lodge is a great place to tie the knot. Its friendly local people and the waterfront setting of the ancient mansions now restored into a luxury island hotel are the perfect recipe for an unforgettable wedding.

Ancient church or tidal sand bank ceremony?

Brides and grooms can choose from a selection of venues, to ensure they get the most out of this serene setting: either the old Stone Town Square or Cathedral of Ibo Island, a beach wedding on the secret hidden sand bank beach, the lodge’s rooftop terrace, or its lush tropical gardens.

The island’s Catholic Church was built in the 1700s with its tower and old brass bells offering a truly special old world church atmosphere. Couples can also use the prehistoric forts and Stone Town square with their impressive old buildings and intricate special features.

Depending on the weather and the tides, couples can exchange nuptials on the Ibo’s magnificent sandbank while guests sit under shady Bedouin style tents while the bridal couple stands under a pretty canopy of palm fronds.

Terrace or gardens, that is the question!

The Bela Vista roof terrace which faces the setting sun overlooking the bay and mangroves beyond is another wonderful venue for an intimate ceremony in the fresh air with the sky painted orange.

Lower down but similarly scenic are the Ibo Island Lodge gardens with frangipani blossoms and spectacular bougainvilleas. Commit to each other to the melody of birds with the swimming pool forming a great backdrop as the sun sets.

Ibo Island Lodge is the perfect venue for an exotic and unique Mozambique island wedding. For smaller weddings, guest can stay in the colonial style accommodation and guests can tuck into an amazing wedding feast complete with seafood and meat grilled on open fires.
