Wedding cakes are a Portuguese specialty and we now have our own in-house cake designer, Leanne, who will help with the design of your cake. Her website is www.loveleacakes.com. Drawing on her knowledge – prioritizing expertise and value for money- Heather can help by making arrangements with florists, wedding photographers, musicians, DJ’s and professional entertainers. A novel addition is the tailoring of games and quizzes featuring the bride and groom.
Heather can make appointments with hairdressers and beauticians, arrange for guests to receive welcome and next day meals, suggest suitable self-catering accommodation in the Old Village or book hotel rooms. To add an extra touch of romance, she can make a special booking with the champagne cruise boat that sails for a moonlit voyage from Vilamoura’s splendid marina!
For couples who prefer the intimacy of a villa wedding Heather can be called upon to arrange catering and any additional services that might be required.
The wedding breakfast is carefully planned choosing from a wide range of delicious cuisine. Menus have been created to suit the client’s culinary preferences, the type of service required and their budget. Heather will ensure that any specific requests such as children’s or vegetarian meals are accommodated.
Recipient of the Portuguese Award for Tourism, the culinary standard at ‘Casa do Largo’ is high providing a selection of modern Mediterranean dishes and traditional British favourites. Individual food and wine menus with prices are provided further on in the website but special recommendations include the summer buffet table followed by strawberries and chocolate fountains, the splendid barbecue feast and the Silver Service Wedding Banquet.
The ceremony is held out of doors in a beautifully furnished pergola that comfortably accommodates very large parties. Graced by a canopy of bougainvillea, the bride and groom are framed by a floral archway, taking their places beside a sparkling fountain on a wedding stage. Guests are seated during the ceremony which is conducted in the English language.
Offering professional guidance, Heather Turner is an experienced wedding planner in the UK and Portugal. If preferred she is able to arrange for the ceremony to take place in the pretty setting of St Luke’s Church or on one of the nearby picturesque beaches.
Heather’s overall aim is to provide a day that exactly meets the wishes of the bride and groom, following any suggestions they might have about wedding themes and colour schemes. Especially authentic and unique is ‘Casa do Largo’s’ vintage wedding day.
Heather can arrange for the wedding reception to take place in the pergola or if preferred it can be held in any of the other facilities available at ‘Casa do Largo.’ These include an elegant dining room, extensive garden terraces and a luxurious Venetian themed wine and tapas bar, Florentina's, especially popular in the evening for music and entertainment.
