Angola

The Republic of Angola is a country in Southern Africa bordered by Namibia on the south, the Democratic Republic of the Congo on the north, and Zambia on the east, while its west coasts is on the Atlantic Ocean. Angola gained its independence from Portugal on November 11th 1975 but still Portuguese is the official language of the country. (Other recognized national languages would be Kikongo, Chokwe, Umbundu, Kimbundu, Ganguela and Kwanyama.)
Angola is twice the size of Texas it measures precisely 1,246,700 sq km.The climate of Angola is tropical on the northern side which is closer to the quator while arid to in the southern regions. This is important information to know when getting married in Angola because the couple can than plan a wedding around the weather and what they want their theme to be (Angola).
Angola is known for two things, its beautiful landscapes and its sources of gem diamonds. I will do a wedding to highlight both one surrounding the beautiful waterfalls and one around diamonds. Angola is not known for being overly hot or overly cold, but know more for how dry it can be. Any outdoor wedding would be a great idea even in winter when the coldest its gets is 16 degrees Celsius (60 degrees Fahrenheit).

Getting married in a different country is always a tricky thing, each country has different requirements for getting married there. Often times it is easier for the couple to get married in their home country, at a town/city hall and than just having a ceremony in a different country later on. This is usually causes less stress and headache for the couple and couple possibly save them money (Getting Married in Angola).
