There’s just something timeless and magical about a wedding venue with a rich history. Imagine a 14th-century monastery with palazzo-style buildings and an ornate interior overlooking Portugal’s spectacular Sintra region. It’s no surprise that Marine and Benjamin chose this dreamy setting for their big day. Planner Hayden Events made their wedding dreams come true at this absolutely stunning Penha Longa wedding.
Their wedding took place across three different incredible locations of Penha Longa Resort, starting with exchanging their vows in a traditional ceremony at the beautiful romanesque chapel. Florist Decorelle created a romantic scene with gorgeous pink and red florals and lots of ivory taper candles as their celebration continued at the luxurious Nobre Room. Following the dinner reception, the couple and their guests danced the night away at the charming open courtyard.
If you’re looking for historic architecture, beautiful gardens, and amazing views as the backdrop for your “I do’s,” then you need to see these gorgeous photos captured by Alex Tome and get ready to see some serious romantic destination wedding inspiration!

Finding the right venue for our big day was really important to us. We fell in love with Penha Longa—it was magnificent, and the chapel was so beautiful. We’re so proud of our wedding because everything was perfect and everyone we loved was there—it was everything we wanted it to be!
