Particularly good for large weddings, Portugal is great if you’re looking to bring friends and family to help you celebrate. A year-round wedding destination, Portugal offers a stunning selection of venues for your ceremony, as well as a great choice of settings for your celebrations afterwards.


Is the wedding a legal ceremony that’s recognised in the UK?
Yes. You will need to be in resort ranging from 2-3 working days prior to the wedding day to arrange the marriage licence and register the wedding. All documentation will need to be translated into Portuguese, which will be taken care of for you once documents have been submitted in advance by our contacts in Portugal.

What would the wedding ceremony and reception look like in Portugal? Portugal has a mix of venue and hotel based weddings. For venue weddings, the ceremony and reception will take place outside of your chosen hotel where it will be possible to arrange everything in one place. For hotel based weddings, the ceremony and reception will happen in the grounds of the chosen hotel with a reception happening there too.

Planning your wedding in Portugal? Once you’ve booked your holiday and wedding date with us, we’ll arrange a follow up planning appointment for you with one of our Wedding Experts to discuss your ceremony and reception in more detail. This will ensure that we can organise everything before you arrive in resort.

Can LGBT couples get married in Portugal? It is possible to legally marry in Portugal for LGBT couples.
