Romantic destination weddings in Portugal

The Algarve region in the south of Portugal is blessed with idyllic smooth beaches and picturesque clifftops that stretch out for over 100 miles, alongside dream-like temperatures and breathtaking ocean views, making it an ever popular destination for weddings, not only for British couples, but overseas couples too.

You could not find a better place for a beach wedding ceremony than the Algarve’s scenic coastline. Forget Britain’s mid-April drizzle and walk down the aisle on one of the region’s picturesque beaches with the summer warmth on your cheeks.

Throw in the sumptuous local cuisine of freshly caught fish and seafood, hand-picked oranges and almonds, and you’ve got a dream destination for your wedding.
