Destination wedding in Portugal


If you’re planning a destination wedding, Portugal is one of the most beautiful places to serve as a backdrop to your big day. The country, located adjacent to Spain, is home to the city of Algarve, known for its many beaches. Just imagine walking as lovebirds along Algarve’s Praia da Marinha, while you look out at its crystal clear water or stand on its cliffs towering above the ocean.

If the couple wants to feel as if you’ve walked into a fairy tale and are about to have your happy ending, consider holding your destination wedding in Portugal’s city of Sintra. According to the city’s history, Sintra became the first center of European Romantic architecture in Portugal when Ferdinand II turned a ruined monastery into a castle.

Portugal is chock-filled with castles, and the Castle of the Moors, a hilltop medieval castle located in Sintra, is a must-see. Sintra has since become an extreme popular tourist destination and with good reason why. Celebrate your nuptials by walking to the top of the oldest castle in Portugal, dating back to 7th-century AD, and take another hand-in-hand walk up its 500 steps of the royal tower as newlyweds.”

A destination wedding is all about location, location, location and Lady of the Rock is one of the most memorable settings you can have for your wedding. The venue is located on a rocky peninsula above the azure sea and has a tiny white washed chapel. As you exchange rings and proclaim your vows, your photographer can capture the unbelievable views behind you. Whether you are having a small, intimate wedding or a full blown-out ceremony with all of your friends and family on hand, the Lady of the Rock is a popular wedding destination.

Once you’ve said your I Do’s, explore the country. Sintra is filled with castles and churches and opulent homes and Lisbon, the capital of Portugal is just a stone’s throw away. Lovers love Lisbon, especially when the São Jorge Castle is all lit up with the Ponte 25 Bridge in the distance.

Destination weddings are becoming extremely popular and affordable. Trying to decide on the right location can be tough since there are many beautiful venues around the world. Thanks to Sintra and Lisbon, you definitely want to put Portugal on the top of the list.
