Planning your wedding

The Gambia is a fantastic choice for a relaxed wedding and offers excellent value for money, enabling you and your guests to experience an unforgettable day without the expense of a wedding in the UK or other destinations abroad. That said, there are some incredible luxurious hotels and excellent facilities so if you do have a large budget it will go a long way in The Gambia.

We have the know-how...

In The Gambia you could take your vows overlooking the Atlantic Ocean at the luxurious Coco Ocean Resort & Spa, hire the boutique Ngala Lodge exclusively for your wedding party, or honeymoon in a floating lodge at Mandina or on a wildlife reserve in neighbouring Senegal.
