Portugal is a country with a unique historical heritage, one that has become increasingly more important for couples deciding on their wedding location. Portugal offers so much in the way of its climate, architecture and cuisine. Specifically however, Portugal is the home of many buildings, palaces and monuments that are the perfect setting for a wedding abroad.
There are places that tell us all the stories of myths and legends, walls that symbolise lost battles and victories… How could you say no to this for your wedding day? Why not start your history as a married couple in such a historically and culturally rich country?
The Quinta – My Vintage Wedding in Portugal is surrounded by gardens and woods, with lovely views of the ocean and of splendid sunsets. This venue has a classic style to evoke the romantic feeling of Sintra. The location offers endless stunning backdrops for photo opportunities, from the grand staircase, to the fabulous French gardens, the fountain with its breath-taking view and the surrounding forest; all are truly magical settings.
From North to South, you can find interesting spaces with idyllic landscapes and distinctive monuments to celebrate your wedding. One of these spaces is the Convento de Sandelgas, located in Coimbra, where you can enjoy a glamorous, refined wedding.
There is a story in every room, full of the charm you desire to fulfil your lifelong dreams of a fairy-tale wedding. With characteristic and cultural architecture, the Convento de Sandelgas is the ideal place to spend your special day. The gardens surrounding the convento and the chapel where you can celebrate your ceremony are perfect settings to celebrate a love story.
Quinta de S.Gens is an 18th century manor house, a true paradisiacal venue for a wedding. The mysterious history of the manor is prevalent, with access to areas of the house that were built centuries ago through tunnels that connect the house to the gardens, fountain and the lake. If you want a venue that combines history and nature, then this place ticks both boxes because it has a huge forest area (perfect for your photos) and a panoramic backdrop. Located in the city of Ourém, your party will be completely exclusive because they only celebrate one event a day.
You do not have to be classic or old fashioned to want to get married in one of these places. It is more than enough just to feel good in the location. If you prefer a themed wedding or a specific type of decoration, you can adapt these locations. The important thing is that you feel good.
These historical spaces give a special ambience to weddings, not only because of their historical significance, but also because buildings such as palaces, monasteries, estates and manors are places that are less and less present in our daily lives and in modern society. Getting married in one of these locations is like entering a different era and living a whole day separately to any other day of your life.
