What to do...

Check-in (14:00 Onwards) 

If you arrive on Wednesday or Thursday, there's plenty to keep you occupied or you can just chill out!

You can grab a bite to eat, lounge by the pool, visit the in the thermal spa or stroll around the gardens or walking trails of Caldas de Monchique.

If you want to join us...


Girls' Boat Trip!

The bride plans to take to the seas for a mini-hen-lunch for all the girls! More details to follow....

Boys will be boys...

The groom and the lads will be tearing up the tarmac at the nearby Autodrome.


We'll all meet up for lunch at the Adega da Marina in Lagos.



All going well, the groom will play a round of golf at the 18-hole Palmeras course in Lagos. 


After checking-in, our plan is to sit back and sip some beers by the pool, that's if we haven't left anything to the last minute....which of course, is really unlikely.

19:00 - 22:00

Join us for some pre-wedding tapas and wine at the stone-walled O Tasco bar. 



A breakfast buffet will be served for all guests in the 1692 Restaurant

After breakfast, you can spend the morning as you like. The ceremony kicks off at 14:00




The ceremony will take place in the grounds of the venue, on the steps of the chapel.

It's only a short walk from the hotel. Look out for signs to direct you on the day.



Drinks reception and canapés.


Eat, drink and be merry in the main courtyard for the meal and speeches.


As much dancing, singing and general tomfoolery as you can possibly handle!


The shenanigans will continue well into the early hours as we move the party indoors...



Another breakfast buffet will be served for all guests in the 1692 Restaurant

Pool Party


Nurse your sore heads by lounging around the pool and soaking up the sun.

Remember to drink plenty of fluids!


Portuguese BBQ


Enjoy a fine selection of local meats alongside the hair of the dog that bit you!


All going well we'll have a spot of live music from Brendan the Hippie.

Please take this as a formal invite to bring any instruments including your vocal chords along with you...
