Rosario + Pedro, by Vanessa & Ivo Handmade Films

Hi everyone! Another week, another beautiful video: today, we present you Rosário + Pedro, happy love birds, owners of two cats and a multitude of action figures and toys, big fans of Star Wars and Doctor Who (as Vanessa & Ivo Handmade Films, the videographers, so you can imagine the four of them getting in total sync!), celebrating a hipster wedding in Portugal.

As you will see, the day started grey and dab, but nothing could cloud the beauty of the ceremony, which took place at Quinta de Sant’Ana (one of our wonderful hosts at The Destination – international wedding conference we put together late March), just on the outskirts of Lisbon.

Just sit back and enjoy the party!


Put it in writing, with Portuguese Patterns

Portuguese Patterns is the new collection by Beija-flor, a stationery brand based in Oporto that creates unique handmade paper goods. As its name gives away, this postcard collection was inspired by the iconic and gorgeous tiles that can be found all over Portugal… wouldn’t they be perfect as handwritten wedding invitations or even thoughtful thank you cards sent after the party?







Go ahead, put it in writing!

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!

Around a Portuguese table

The Portuguese are known for their hospitality and love of wonderful food, which means around here, it isn’t a party if we’re not gathered around a gorgeous table – cue Barru Pottery, handmade ceramic dinnerware that is designed and created in Portugal with so much love, it travels straight to your seat. Inspired by crochet, nature and the sea, these dinnerware collections are unique, exclusive and so perfect for an unexpected wedding reception décor.
