A few more questions from your reply:
1) If she applied for a Fiance visa could she then apply from the spouse visa in the UK or will she need to go home to apply for it?
do you have a link for details on the Fiance visa?
2) If I went to Brazil and married her there would she then only need to apply for a spouse visa to come and stay and work in the UK with me?
Great, thanks for the answers.
Do you know how long certain visa applications take or is that a "how long is a piece or string question" ?
