What is not included in our villa wedding package
We do not plan your wedding day but we can help you by putting you in touch with local wedding service providers and planners.
The services of a musician, florist, photographer, celebrant etc. are not included but ask Cheryl for a list of previously booked and recommended local suppliers to help with your research.
The sourcing of a catering service or independent chefs is not included although Cheryl can suggest various options for food caterers, that come recommended, to suit your style.
The furniture, table linen, crockery and cutlery that is required on the wedding day. Our recommended caterer will help you select the items required and take care of all the requirements including the delivery, collection and setup.
Kitchen help is not included but there’s ample space here for outside caterers to store supplies and prepare menus. Our fully equipped kitchen is the perfect setting to turn fresh, seasonal produce purchased from the nearby Farmers Market into delicious delights.
We can have local ingredients procured for you, courtesy of our shopping concierge service.
During your stay additional cleaning, change of towels or linen can be booked in advance, if required.
We recommend hiring 33-seater coaches for transporting your guests to and from the location and will put you in touch with the local transport company.
Stocking the bar can easily be done from abroad. Cheryl can put you in touch with a local Portuguese wine merchant who can send you a selection of Portuguese wines for you to sample in the comfort of your own home. Wines can be bought on consignment for the wedding celebration so you can return unopened wine bottles.
A standard wedding decoration set is available for hire allowing you time to focus on you own personalised decorations.
