Wedding on the water

Imagine a wedding day overlooking the sparkling waters of the Atlantic Ocean. A day spent celebrating in a stunning and sophisticated hotel venue just outside Portugal’s elegant and seductive capital of Lisbon, in the upmarket port town of Cascais. That’s what brides and grooms-to-be can enjoy in the magnificent Farol Hotel.

Unlike some of the other five star hotels in the town, Farol enjoys the advantages of being literally located ‘on the water’. It’s balanced perfectly on the cliff top overlooking the ocean and the town’s picturesque marina.

The hotel, a member of Design Hotels, is the result of a restoration of a 19th century mansion owned by several members of the Portuguese aristocracy and lately owned by the Count of Cabral. The Chalet was converted into The Farol Design Hotel in 2002  perfectly combining traditional architecture and the best in modern design.

With a striking interior designed entirely in black and white (which just happens to be our very own preferred design scheme) this is one of our very favourite wedding venues in the Lisbon and Cascais area.


Weddings here, which have included the Daniela Ruah and David Paul Olsen celebration recently featured in Vogue magazine, look scintillating. From saying your vows down on the sand to strolling back up the cliffs and dancing the night away in one of the most spectacular settings imaginable – it’s a hard one to beat.
