We now decided we want to get married, but everywhere I search on gov websites says that it cannot be done on a travel visa! Can you please advise us on this! The right way to do it, because I want my girlfriend, feature wife to be able to stay here with me afterwords. She is a Brazilian citizen! Please advice

Thank you for your query. Can you confirm that your Girlfriend has a Visitors Visa?

If your Girlfriend has a standard Visotors Visa, she will NOT be a to marry in the UK. In order for her to marry, she should have a Fiancee Visa.

She will need to return to her home country and make an application for a Fiancee Visa before returning to marry in the UK.

I am sorry if this was not the answer you were expecting.

I hope this answers your questions. If so, kindly rate the answer and provide feedback.
