Located in the heart of Sintra, this brand new venue, Camélia Gardens, it’s for sure one of our favorite venues in the Lisbon area. It’s the perfect place for a beautiful destination wedding in Portugal for the ones who envision an intimate wedding surrounded by nature and history.
What we love the most about this place is all the nature that surrounds it, the big old trees, the stunning views and the gorgeous building itself (with breathtaking ceilings) that was meticulously remodeled by the owner who is an architect. In addition to this, Sintra is a magical and special location, so it’s for sure a very good choice for a special celebration like a wedding!
We are always looking for new venues and as Portugal is a country full of history, many old buildings are being used for weddings. However, to be honest, is not so easy to find venues like this, where the renovation was so well done. In Camélia Gardens there was not any missing detail and that’s why this is one of our favorite venues. It has a lot of potential because of all of the gorgeous corners and different areas and options for each moment of the wedding. The fact of being an antique big house makes us feel that we are home! Besides that, it’s possible to use the rooms located upstairs for the bride, groom, bridesmaids, and groomsmen getting ready and the pool is always a good plus to relax and enjoy the sun before the getting ready time.
The fact of being so close to Lisbon is another important point for the couples who want a venue close to Lisbon and the airport, to make it easy for the guests who come from all around the world to get there. This also makes it possible for the guests to return to Lisbon after the party by Uber by getting there in 30minutes. For the ones who would prefer to stay closer to the venue, there are also hotels at 5-15minutes. For now, it’s not possible to stay in the venue but in the future, it will be, the owner has in mind renovate the rest of the house soon.
We share with you some images of a wedding we had there last year, one of the first ones they had there. It was such a beautiful and happy day for everyone!
