Lisbon Wedding Officiant

We love nothing more than being your Lisbon wedding officiant! The capital of our beautiful country combines the modern and the tradition, as well as the local and the international. That is why every year so many couples from around the world ask us to conduct their symbolic wedding ceremony in Lisbon. The couples who choose Lisbon and Your European Wedding Celebrant are looking for something different that combines the duality of the city, every day life, and their love. Unimpressed with the standard, our couples demand (and deserve!) bespoke wedding days and ceremonies. If this sounds like what you are looking for in your wedding day, keep reading to learn more.

Our celebrants are located all over Portugal, however, Lisbon is always the featured start of every wedding season. With so many different types of wedding venues, from royal gardens to historic homes to luxury hotels to palaces and forts, the city attracts many different couples for many different reasons. We adore Lisbon because it is a modern and international city that is proud of its Portuguese-ness. This means that every couple marrying in the city can cater to their international guests while offering them a uniquely Portuguese experience.

If marrying in a palace is your dream then look no further than the Palácio Marquês da Fronteira. Elegant, traditional, with a touch of luxury, this 17th-century palace does not disappoint. Maybe cozy, hidden gems are more your style, then be sure to visit Quinta das Pintoras in the heart of the city, but with the feeling of a secret oasis. For couples who want to feel close to nature, but also have their ceremony in the heart of the city, the Estufa Real is one of the best locations in the city. Or through all venues to the wind and consider an elopement on the streets of Lisbon! We have had the privilege to be a part of a few and we have adored each experience.

That is why you should choose us as your Lisbon wedding officiant. We are ready to conduct your symbolic wedding ceremony in Lisbon and beyond. However, we understand if you would like to hear from other, that is why we would love for you to read some of the reviews from couples like you…

There are lots of little things about our wedding day that we could’ve changed or done without, but Carly and the ceremony we created with her was absolutely PERFECT! It was the most uniquely “US” part of the whole day. Our closest family and friends got to know us that much deeper because of it. Both of us are a little shy but had a great desire to communicate our deep love for one another (without having to give a big speech or vows ourselves!) Carly did such an amazing job at bringing our unique story and devotion for each other to light. The script was humourous and deeply heartfelt. However, if this isn’t what you are looking for, I am confident she could do anything! She is highly professional, organized, and open. She had no preconceived notions or agenda on how she thought the ceremony should be done. She came with so many different unique ideas to help guide us to find exactly what fit for us. She also made me feel extremely comfortable in asking for edits and revisions. She understands what a special moment this is. And lastly, her presence and energy on the actual day were amazing! We are so grateful for Carly. 🙂

Vanessa was amazing. She understood us and the type of ceremony we wanted very quickly. She was very professional and responsive to our needs and conducting a lovely ceremony for us. We highly recommend her. Thank you so much!

Where do we start?! What an incredible ceremony – it was personal, unique, fun but very spiritual.  We can’t thank you enough for guiding us through the planning of it. Through your structure, suggestions, and genuine love for love, it was the most special part of the entire day.

So many of our guests commented on what a personalised service it was! This is really a testament to Carly’s attentiveness in our conversations and the level of detail/research she puts into preparing the wedding ceremony.
She always responded very promptly to any emails and was very flexible in arranging skype calls, changing small details to the ceremony, and timing of our rehearsal.
Thank you!

Valerie & Joe – married at Estufa Real in Lisbon

Carly was an absolute dream to work with and made our day even better than I imagined. Planning a private destination elopement so far away was much easier than I expected – due to having an awesome team that included Carly as a big part of that! She was flexible with scheduling phone meetings (since we were halfway around the world and 8 hours behind her), and always seemed genuinely excited to learn about us as a couple, and what she could do to make our day perfect. Her custom ceremony was amazing, and the perfect mix of traditional, silly, and romantic for my husband and me. When we finally met Carly in person, it was like meeting an old friend (as we all ran to catch our boat before it left)! I wish we could have hung out with her longer!
