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!


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…

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!


Katerina + André, by Maria Imaginária

Hello everyone!

As September keeps on being busy, we bring you another beautiful wedding shot during this year. Today is all about Katerina + André: she’s Greek and he is Portuguese and they are both professional poker players. They met at a professional tournament and during vacation on the beautiful island Zakythos, André proposed.


They chose magical Sintra for the wedding, dressing up at the magnificent Palácio de Seteais, getting married in São Pedro Church and having the reception at Casa dos Penedos, a former private house.

The rest was history, and nothing similar to a fat greek wedding, oh no no no… it was a day to celebrate and connect: two lovers, two families, two cultures got together and share their customs, traditions and love… and that is always beautiful!



Gorgeous video work from Portuguese duo, Maria Imaginária.
