As summer draws to a close and the nights close in, temperatures drop and winter looms on the horizon, it can be tempting to put off dreams of the perfect wedding until next year. But it doesn’t have to be that way. Here in Portugal the sun continues to shine and there are plenty more reasons why it’s the perfect winter wedding destination. Here are five of the best:
