A big 'Yes!' to Destination Weddings in Portugal. We highly recommend the team :). We had a blast at our wedding and during our stay at Senhora da Guia.
Rita is an amazing planner, extremely patient and organized. Always on top of everything and very quick at replying and clarifying any doubts we had. We trusted completely in Rita which allowed us to fully enjoy our wedding day and pre-wedding party.
Polina was also a big addition and help during the negotiation and planning phase.
We worked with a few vendors recommended by Rita and they are amazing.
Thank you for the best wedding ever!

We had the most perfect wedding day we could have asked for at the Senhora da Guia Boutique Hotel with Destination Weddings. We wanted an intimate celebration with 40 guests and for the experience to be stress free and beautiful.
Not having to find a DJ, photographer, caterer ect in Portugal made our lives so much easier and the ones provided by them we absolutely brilliant and so so friendly.
The Destination Weddings team were to helpful and responsive making the whole wedding planning experience easy and fun. They helped us with all the paperwork that we would have been unable to figure out without them and gave us the most insightful suggestions when we didn’t know what décor decisions to make.
Needless to say all our guests had an amazing day reuniting family members that had not seen each other in over 10 years. The Hotel is stunning overlooking the ocean and was made to look totally spectacular for our special day.
I could write endlessly about how special they made the entire experience but instead I’m just going to say that we fully recommend using them to give you the perfect wedding!

My husband and I have just returned from our wedding at hotel Senhora Da Guia in Cascais. We spent 18 months planning the wedding and found our wedding planners Vanessa and Rita to be extremely helpful in guiding/assisting us through the whole process. We flew to Lisbon 4 months before the wedding to meet with the registrar, wedding planners, and choose our wedding menu. The service we received was outstanding and we were made to feel very welcome.
The wedding day itself was absolutely perfect and every tiny detail was as we imagined! Rita was at our disposal throughout the whole day and ensured everything went to plan. The staff, service, and food were all exceptional and of the highest standard. I would highly recommend Destination Weddings to anyone!

I really don't know where to start. Rita & Polina are amazing. We booked the wedding with destination weddings before we had even seen the venue in person. I was so confident that it was going to be everything we wanted. We visited Sehnora da guia in march and it took our breath away. After meeting with our planners I was just knew everything was going to be perfect. They made us both feel so happy & we just knew all our guests would love the hotel just as much as we did. They couldn't do any more & we want to thank them so much for all the organisation & effort they put in to making our wedding so special.
It truly was perfect. If your considering booking your wedding with them, please don't look any further. You will not be disappointed. Thank you Polina & Rita.

We got married in June at Monserrate Palace and then we held the reception at hotel Senhora Da Guia. This was all organised remotely through Destination Weddings. We are based in the U.K.
We had the most wonderful day and a huge part of this was due to Rita, the wedding planning team, and the team at Senhora Da Guia.
From our first contact with Rita we knew that our wedding was in very safe hands. She was so warm, helpful and nothing at all was too much trouble. The day was SO well organised. Everything went according to plan: the venue, the flowers, the tables, the fountain, the outside areas, the name tags, the cake - everything looked incredible.
And then there was the food!! We have been to many, many weddings in our time but the four course meal at Senhora Da Guia was fabulous. ALL our guests were blown away by the quality, consistency and sheer bloody deliciousness!
The service throughout the day was of the highest standard too. The hotel staff, who also worked at Monserrate serving canapés and drinks, were excellent.
The photographer Anastasia that was linked to the package was great too. We have just got our wedding photos back and we absolutely love them.
We really could not have asked for more. If you are thinking of holding your wedding in Portugal then we cannot recommend strongly enough Rita and Destination Weddings.
We still cannot stop smiling, what a truly remarkable day organised by truly remarkable people! Thank you.

My fairytale wedding, that’s how I tell everyone about my Big day!
A simple ‘thank you’ can’t begin to express our gratitude for everything you and your staff did to make our day truly perfect! I think we are the luckiest couple to fall into the hands of Rita, wedding planner, and the Destination Weddings in Portugal team! For us was very important to plan everything online, because we currently live in Dubai and didn’t have time to come to Portugal before wedding. Communication with Rita was very easy, she always replied straight away and was available at all time, imagine the time difference and etc. There were no worries at all during key moments, Rita brought all my phantasy into reality, even magically found the way to work out all the disagreements between me and my husband when it comes to choose the cake for example. =)
Rita helped us to choose the right location for our venue depends on number of guests, the style of the venue and our other preferences, and it was incredible, my first time to be there was at my wedding and I felt myself as a real princess going to get married in the beautiful villa by the ocean! The decorations, flowers, illumination and the most important – dinner, deserve a special praise! My bride bouquet was very special… I just shared with Rita my favorite flowers and colors, but I could’t imagine that she will go beyond and make it so significant. Every type of flower had a very deep meaning for me through out my life. The dinner was a truly a incredible experience! Not only because a mouthwatering food but also because of the level of service. Such a small details like me and my husband was served simultaneously made a big impression! Destination Weddings in Portugal not only fulfilled my expectations, went beyond that but even managed to surprise us with an unexpected fireworks during cake cutting! I can’t find the right words to describe our feelings at that moment! Lastly I just have to mention our singer and the DJ, those guys broke my heart! I think I will remember my whole life this voice and the music for our first dance! As well as all our guests, everyone admitted that it was the most sincere, heartwarming and unforgettable moment in our lives!

“There aren’t enough adjectives to describe how amazing and extraordinary our wedding and time has been thanks to “Destination Weddings in Portugal”. The staff has been fun and incredibly, thoughtful with unrivaled attention to detail. If I could hug everyone who made our experience so beautiful it would barely start to show our appreciation (and my emotions). Such an outstanding place and time will hold a special place in our hearts and I can’t wait to come back for anniversaries and holidays! Deepest thanks and hugs!”
