Weddings & Marriage Blessings in the Algarve

The law in Portugal, as in most countries, requires that first a civil registration of your marriage takes place. The civil part can be done in your home country or in Portugal (though that involves more paperwork). Following that a wedding or blessing service may be in a Church or private home, beach location or hotel. Please ask a wedding planner for guidance of possible locations for your service.

Please email us at for more information regarding a wedding or blessing ceremony. Please note that we cannot assist with the civil part of your wedding, and that we will need to see evidence that this has already taken place. Many couples choose to do this part of their wedding discreetly and without guests, and then hold a traditional wedding service and reception. In Lagoa we can offer the use of a 300 year old Convent Chapel, see ‘Where we Worship’ and then Lagoa in the menu on the right.
