Cascais

Located just along the coast from the capital, where the Tagus meets the Atlantic, this former fishing village is an upmarket destination complete with stunning coastal villas and a picturesque marina. The Farol Design hotel sits on the cliff top above the Atlantic and hosts spectacular weddings.

Evora

Enjoy a wedding in the heart of historic Portugal. Evora is a UNESCO World Heritage Site surrounded by the natural beauty of the Alentejo region. The magnificent Convento do Espinheiro is just one of the incredible venues on offer here.

Porto

Portugal’s second city and Lisbon’s equal in terms of beauty and history, you have the added bonus of the port cellars and the majestic Douro Valley to explore.

Coimbra

The former capital, home to one of the world’s oldest universities, is a beautiful city on a hill. With historic churches and superb venues nestled amongst the alleyways and staircases, Coimbra hides its magic well.

Monsanto

This small village clings to the mountain top, nestled among immovable boulders, many of which form parts of the buildings. With panoramic views in every direction, there are few better wedding backdrops in the world.
