Luxury green wedding decor at vineyard venue in Douro Valley, Portugal – Hotel Rural Casa dos Viscondes da Várzea
The Douro Valley is one of the most beautiful regions of Portugal, and Hotel Rural Casa dos Viscondes da Várzea is a beautiful venue that represents the Douro serenity and beauty.
The couple wanted to provide a relaxed and fun weekend to their guests while providing a unique experience. That’s why they chose Douro Valley as the destination for their wedding and a venue that allowed them to spend some time in an intimate atmosphere, surrounded by nature. This venue has the perfect cottage and welcoming vibes they were looking for. The surrounding vineyards frame the main building and invite everyone to lovely walks in the afternoon, enjoying the sun setting in nearby mountains.
But it is not only on the outside of the venue that you are able to experience this encounter with nature. The main dining room blooms with greenery, you even forget you’re not on the outside. The room is, actually, a big veranda overlooking the vineyard and mountains, from which you can access a wide patio. Inês and Gonçalo chose the patio to host the perfect end of Summer cocktail reception and the amazingly fun outdoor night party.
The religious ceremony took place in the nearby city, in the stunning Sé de Lamego. This is a gorgeous gothic cathedral that dates back from the 12th century. The whole church is beautiful, but the high-ceilings and its paintings took our breaths away.
