CEREMONY:

1. Type of Ceremony - Catholic Church,Church of England,Civil Ceremony,Humanist.

2. Location of Ceremony- Church,Beach,Hotel,Marquee,Villa,Palace,Vineyard

3. Customs & Traditions - you include your own personal elements of the ceremony

4. Readings - you can include family & friends,by inviting them to do the readings

5.  Vows - the Bride & Groom can express their feelings & aspirations to each other

6.  Music - select your own favourite music for the ceremony

7. Flowers - you can have your favourite flowers displayed to enhance the atmosphere

It should be noted that a Humanist Blessing does not form a legal contract of marriage and you should arrange a civil ceremony in your own country,seperately, if required

There are many beautiful churches in the Algarve,notably in Alvor,Albufeira and Loule.An Anglican service can be accommodated in a Catholic church,with the permission of the local priest.

Since June 2010 same sex marriages are now recognised in Portugal








RECEPTION:

1.   Decide on what type of reception you want - formal,casual,outdoor, or marquee.

2.  Select the perfect venue from an extensive list of possibilities,including Hotel,Beach,Seaview
       Restaurant,Private Villa,Country Manor,Traditional Farmhouse,Vineyard Estate,Golf Club.

3.  Select the most suitable time for your Reception - early evening allows you the option of 
      spectacular sunsets,atmospheric candle lighting and a fireworks display.

4.  Choose your favourite musicians to entertain you,at the church,at the arrival reception,
      followed by the dancing and finally, the disco.


5.   Decide on the details of your arrival reception,to include drinks and finger food.

6.   Select the preferred seating layout and table design and decoration for your chosen venue.

7.   Decide on your choice of food for the meal - full 4 course dinner,hot & cold buffet or BBQ.

8.   Choose local wines and drinks to compliment your meal and decide on your budget.

9.   Arrange the most suitable time for speeches - it may be before the meal.

LEGAL  ISSUES:

The legal process,if you decide to have a licensed wedding in Portugal,has changed,making it possible to nominate your Wedding Planner as your authorised person to co-ordinate the steps involved.It is no longer necessary to prove that you have a temporary residence in Portugal.However,it is time consuming and does require you to provide certificates at different stages.It will also add a considerable fee of approx €1500 to your wedding celebrations,so it is probably more effective to have a private civil ceremony in your own country,in advance of your blessing in the Algarve.

LEGAL  STEPS:

If you decide on having the paperwork completed in Portugal,these are the steps you must take:

1. Forward a letter of "No Impediment" to your Embassy/Consulate in Portugal.They will issue a
     Certificate of "No Impediment".

2. Display a Notice of Marriage in your own Registry Office.

3. Supply Birth Certificates, which are no older than 6 months, before the ceremony.

4. Provide copies of your passports.

5. Provide a letter authorising your Wedding Planner to act on your behalf.

6. All documents will have to be translated to Portuguese by an official translator.

7. All translated documents will have to be notorised.

8. Once notorised,the documents must be sent to the local Portuguese Registry Office.They are 
     usually confirmed within two weeks.

As mentioned previously,this entire process can cost approx €1500 in fees.
