The power of flowers

Fall is definitely here to stay, but warm days still linger in our minds and in our hearts… fortunately Pinga Amor’s amazing floral design has the power to transport us to a gorgeous summer day in Portugal where, inspired by a rustic and organic feel, the beautiful Douro Palace Hotel was transformed into a fresh and elegant paradise, where linen, sackcloth, wooden boxes, detailed glass and kraft paper laid the foundation for the fragrant beauty spun by porcelain flowers, buttercups, baby’s breath, eustoma, eucalyptus, roses, peonies, viburnum and chrysanthemums. A white, ivory and natural green garden of love…

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!

 


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…


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.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Because rain or shine, it’s always a great day to run away and get married!


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!

Russian love, Portuguese passion

Let’s be totally honest here, as Misha + Sasha were with us: Portugal was not this Russian couple’s first choice when they decided to have a destination wedding and on the map that finally led them to Portugal, there were stops in Greece, Thailand and Montenegro. For one reason or another, however, they just kept on going and only stopped with Portugal on the horizon. And what a horizon – saying “I do” on a stunning cliff overlooking the ocean is something definitely worth searching for…

Welcome to the Azores, Portugal’s magical islands!

Chris Hau, the creator of this cool video, baptized the Azores as Europe’s Hawaii and we couldn’t agree more! You’ll find the Azores smack in the middle of the North Atlantic Ocean (a quick 2 hour flight from Lisbon), where you have nine magical and volcanic islands to get lost in. Lost in the beauty and strength of Mother Nature, lost in breathtaking landscapes, lost in the sea and in the forests, lost in love and wonder… the hard part will be choosing the spot to say “I do”…

 

 

Your happily ever after starts right here, welcome to the Azores…
