Have a great weekend!


Monastery magic

If tying the knot with the love of your life in a century old monastery in Northern Portugal sounds absolutely like your dream destination wedding, what would you say to two monasteries? Cláudia + Pedro held their religious ceremony at the Leça do Balio Monastery which dates back to the 10th century and then whisked off their guests to party at the equally gorgeous and equally old Landim Monastery (it also has its origins in the 10th century)… we can’t get over that décor! Luckily, we have a front row seat to this magical day thanks to We Love Film…

 

 

This is the kind of magic that destination wedding dreams are made of…


Small & Significant

Small intimate weddings are marvelous, precisely because, well, they’re small and intimate. Just take a peek at what London residents Suzzane + Alexandre did when they decided to fly into Portugal to tie the knot… with the stunning Seteais Palace in Sintra as the stage, the magnificent décor and elegant dinner was more than enough. It was everything. A party fit for kings and queens… we wish we had been invited!

Alexandra + Bruno, by Shot & Cut Films

When you live abroad, you are filled with a mix of emotions, like being homesick (or saudades, as we portuguese call it). When it’s time to say “i do”, coming home is the way to go, as it is where the heart always is.

So, that’s just what Alexandra + Bruno did: a tremendous party for friends and family, a celebration held at the magnificent Palácio Marquês de Fronteira, filled with love, long hugs and everything else in between…

Powerful!

Happiness is a universal language

Portugal – more specifically the stunning Penha Longa Hotel in Sintra – was the chosen spot, that special place where people, hearts and love converged to celebrate Taciane + Par (and their son Axel). A Brazilian bride, a Swedish groom and a wedding filled with friends and family who flew in from all around the world to watch, smile, cry, laugh, dance, clap, toast: the universal language of happiness. See for yourselves (it’s a long post, but so very worth it!).
