Ruth + Ciaran

This was a very special wedding indeed. Ruth & Ciaran came all the way from Ireland to get married in the stunning Penha Longa Resort in Sintra, just outside Lisbon, Portugal. This resort is located just inside a protected national park with stunning mountain views and lush forests. A beautiful Ritz Carlton Hotel sits next to a 14th century monastery, where the ceremony took place. This mix of old and new, of history and modern elegance makes for a spectacular wedding venue.

As with many foreign weddings guests made a holiday out of it and this made for such a fun wedding as everyone had some time to get to know each other before the wedding day. A destination wedding in Portugal can be difficult to organise from Ireland but Ruth & Ciaran did really well bringing somany wonderful suppliers together in one place. With any wedding abroad finding a good wedding planner is vital and Vanessa from Lisbon Wedding Planner did an amazing job!

Combining great weather, a stunning venue, guests in holiday mode and a gorgeous relaxed couple, well it makes for one awesome wedding!!
