Venue Views :: Spinguera, Cape Verde

Hello! It’s Ashley The Blonde in Africa and the stationer at Lemon and Lavender. My family and I moved to Dakar, Sénégal in January of this year and I began writing about our journey living in a third world country. Despite the difficulties we absolutely love living in West Africa and I wanted to dream up a magical place near Dakar. I immediately thought of the Cape Verde Islands. It’s a short 40 minute flight out of Dakar and the views are breathtaking.  My style is very eclectic and I am already imagining the fun ways this shipwrecked deserted island can be played out in the paper goods for this dream wedding!

I came upon this lovely villa of Spinguera. In the middle of a natural park it’s completely secluded and the perfect backdrop for a rustic getaway wedding.  Prior to renovations it was an abandoned ancient fishermen settlement including the remains of a shipwreck off the coast.

I envision a beach wedding with this amazingly romantic Shakespearean/Lord Byron shipwreck in the background, a barefoot bride, rustic wooden benches with bright pillows for guests, hundreds of lanterns as there isn’t any electricity, maybe a violinist playing some romantic gypsy music while guests dance and sip champagne on the beach under the moonlight.

It’s the perfect destination wedding for the adventure romantic! {Ashley, I totally agree this place is amazing! Thank you for sharing! xo}
