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…

Goodbye Summer, Hello Autumn

As Summer gives way to Autumn here in Portugal, we’re dreaming of golden fields, crisp breezes, fall weddings, leaves crackling under our strolling footsteps, warm blankets and coffee, nesting and cooking, family and friends gathered around an inviting table… sounds heavenly, doesn’t it?

 

 

This lovely video of a KINFOLK Flower Potluck held in Portugal was shot by De Alma e Coração.


Love Stories, selected vendor by The Destination

Once upon a time, there was a groom named Miguel and a bride named Raquel. He was a designer and she was an engineer.

Together, they decided to tell their story… on a wedding invitation.

And so, as luck would have it, it turned out very well indeed:  Love Stories was born.

Run away with me, by Miguel Ribeiro Fernandes

There’s something absolutely magical and downright daring about elopement weddings, wouldn’t you agree? Michelle + Hakon chose to run away to Lisbon to tie the knot in a totally private ceremony with only one guest – Miguel Ribeiro Fernandes – as their photographer and witness. Their unique day began at the Norwegian embassy, where the wedding was officialized and then celebrated in the beautiful streets of Portugal’s capital, in the quaint Alfama neighborhood and by the Tagus River… all of which showered them with sun and sprinkled them with rain, a sign of luck according to tradition.
