Sweet Portuguese tart by Sweet Paul

Obsessed with cooking and crafting since he was a little boy growing up in Norway, Sweet Paul was inspired by Chef Jorge Miguel Romão from the Internacional Design Hotel in Lisbon to create his very own rendition of the decadent Portuguese Caramelized Almond Tart and… doesn’t it just look amazing? Imagine how mouth-watering this delicacy would be on your dessert table or beautifully wrapped up so guests could take home as a sweet reminder of an unforgettable destination wedding in Portugal?!

An elopement wedding fit for princesses and princes

Entertaining the idea of an elopement wedding (or even a destination wedding!) in a Portuguese palace, located in one of the beautiful forests of the country’s gorgeous northern region? Well, Pixel has shot a styled video that brings together just that… and we have to say that the backdrop – the Hotel Vidago Palace – is absolutely stunning.



It may be imaginary, but it feels oh so real, oh so beautiful!


Wedding anniversary in Lisbon, by Maria Imaginária

Hi everyone! Still summer around here, can you imagine?

So, let’s wrap up this week with an exquisite video from dynamic duo Maria Imaginária: meet Mercedes + Joey, traveling to Lisbon for their first wedding anniversary.

So in love they were with the city, that they told us that if they had been here before, Lisbon would have been their wedding destination.

Nuno and Pedro, the videographers, guided them through the old neighbourhoods, spending the day until the last rays of light – the most beautiful time to enjoy the vibe and colors of Lisbon!

If I didn’t live here, I would have fallen in love too! What an epic and emotional film, I just keep on watching in loop mode!


Have a great weekend!
