Picturesque Palace Wedding in Lisbon

Francesca and Daniele’s picturesque palace wedding in Lisbon perfectly embodies the magic of fairytales. The historic 17th-century Palácio Marquês da Fronteira is renowned for its dramatically landscaped gardens, baroque architecture, ornate fountains, beautiful statues, and spectacular azulejos—the famed hand-painted Portuguese blue tiles. With the help of their planner, Martina Morrea of Alchimia Studio, every single detail of their elegant affair was executed to perfection.

The couple set the tone with their sophisticated wedding attire. The groom donned a classic suit while the bride wore two beautiful wedding dresses starting with a vintage two-piece beaded fringe ensemble that belonged to her aunt. She later changed into a sparkly silver wedding dress with an open back from Millanova

Surrounded by family and friends, the couple exchanged their vows at the magnificent terrace of the palace. Understated white florals and cascading greenery added just the right romantic touch to the elaborate exterior. From the tablescape to the cake, the details from the reception that followed tied in the intricate design and color of the blue ceramic tiling.

Absolutely Magical Lisbon Botanical Garden Wedding

Our jaws dropped when we saw this Lisbon botanical garden wedding—geometric-shaped shrubberies, luscious greenery, and a gorgeous view of the city. From getting ready together to asking their maids of honor to officiate the wedding, Luc and João’s wedding was intimate, magical, and incredibly personal.

To add to the magic, wedding planner Muza Weddings Concept adorned their wedding altar with large clear acrylic blocks, candles, and black cubes. Plus, the reception decor was breathtaking: rattan peacock chairs, lounging couches, and vibrant green florals. You’ll have to see to believe, so keep scrolling to see photos captured by Hugo Coelho

Planning Their Lisbon Botanical Garden Wedding

The most important part of planning was to plan a wedding that looked like us. We wanted to make something meaningful without being too influenced by traditions and the people around us. It was liberating and inspiring to be able to do whatever we wanted.

Celebrating Love

We’re most proud to have been able to gather all our closest friends and family to celebrate not just our love, but love in general. It was so important to us to give a message of tolerance because the ability to freely love who you love is sadly not given to everyone. We wanted to show that no matter if you’re gay, straight, or in-between, it’s all about the love you share.

Officiated By Their Maids of Honor

The most memorable part of the day was the symbolic ceremony. We asked our Maids of Honor (Luc’s best friend and João’s sister) to write and to officiate the ceremony because we wanted it to be very intimate and personal. It was a magical moment that had us in tears from the beginning to the end. They also included speeches from both of our moms. It was really moving.

Advice For Nearlyweds

Planning a wedding can be overwhelming and even more so during the COVID-19 pandemic. What we have learned during the process was to be resilient together. This COVID wedding was proof that if you are willing to compromise on your vision together, you can still get a beautiful wedding surrounded by those who really matter.
