Cool Lisbon Wedding at Palácio Fronteira in Lisbon, Portugal

Emily and Stuart are from London but they’re passionate about Portugal, so a Portugal wedding was always the top choice. They celebrated their wedding at Palácio Fronteira, a historical venue in the heart of Lisbon where the likes of MADONNA and VALENTINO host their parties.

Everything was so beautiful it’s hard to believe that the bride planned the whole wedding herself, but it’s true. Emily got ready at the trendy and super cool Verride Palacio Santa Catarina, a stylish hotel in the heart of Lisbon, with a wonderful rooftop pool overlooking the Tagus River. Her amazing wedding dress is lace heaven from Yolan Cris, and the elegant flowers are from Decorelle. Emily’s brother designed all the beautiful wedding stationery inspired by the Portuguese tiles and the blue ocean.

The ceremony and the wedding reception took place at Palácio Fronteira, an exquisite and 17th-century palace, full of color, tiles and gorgeous gardens. The whole day was punctuated by cool vibes with a classic touch.

Casamento moderno e elegante no Palácio Fronteira, em Lisboa

A Emily e o Stuart são de Londres, mas são apaixonados por Portugal e um casamento em Portugal foi sempre a escolha prioritária. O casal celebrou o casamento no Palácio Fronteira, um espaço histórico em Lisboa, onde artistas como MADONNA e VALENTINO já realizaram algumas festas.

A verdade é que estava tudo estava tão bonito que é difícil acreditar que a foi a noiva que organizou todo o casamento à distância, mas é verdade. Emily arranjou-se no elegante Verride Palácio Santa Catarina. Este é um hotel lindíssimo no coração de Lisboa que tem o ´plus’ de ter uma piscina fantástica na cobertura, com vista para o rio Tejo. O vestido de noiva Yolan Cris é uma reinvenção moderna da tradicional renda, e as elegantes flores são de Decorelle. O irmão da Emily criou todo o estacionário, inspirado nos azulejos portugueses e no azul do oceano.

A cerimónia e a recepção do casamento foram realizadas no Palácio Fronteira, um requintado palácio do século XVII, cheio de cores, azulejos e belos jardins. O dia inteiro foi pontuado por vibrações muito ‘cool’ mas com um toque clássico.

Getting Ready at Verride Palácio Santa Catarina

Emily spent the night before the wedding at Verride Palácio Santa Catarina, a glamorous 5-star hotel. The hotel is located in Santa Catarina neighborhood, between Bairro Alto and Chiado, and it known for its cosmopolitan and bohemian lifestyle. Verride Hotel is situated by the famous and trendy viewpoint Miradouro de Santa Catarina, a popular spot for afternoon gatherings, chill drinks, and gorgeous sunsets by the river. Emily and her bridesmaids enjoyed the luxurious rooms of the hotel and they couldn’t resist having fun by the outdoor pool in the hotel’s rooftop terrace.

 

Stuart and his best men chose to start the day at the wedding venue. A proper spot for this dapper group to get ready and chill at Palácio Fronteira’s garden. A stylish morning for cool gentlemen. 

Emily passou a noite antes do casamento no Verride Palácio Santa Catarina, um glamouroso hotel de 5 estrelas. O hotel está localizado no bairro de Santa Catarina, entre o Bairro Alto e o Chiado, conhecido pelo seu estilo de vida cosmopolita e boémio. O Verride Hotel fica muito perto do famoso Miradouro de Santa Catarina, um espaço popular para bebidas ao final da tarde e para apreciar um pôr do sol deslumbrantes com vistas para o rio. Emily e as damas de honor aproveitaram ao máximo os luxuosos quartos do hotel e não resistiram a passar algum tempo na piscina ao ar livre, no terraço do hotel. Stuart e os amigos começaram o dia no palácio onde ia ter lugar o casamento. Uma óptima escolha para este grupo elegante se preparar e  para relaxar nos jardins do Palácio Fronteira.

timeless elegance with an editorial flair. FASHION & DETAILS

The bride’s main inspiration is Grace Kelly. Emily told us: “I absolutely love a royal wedding so I decided to try and created my own in Lisbon! I really wanted to something classical and timeless, something that in 10 years I could look back on and it still look ‘chic’. Continuing with the royal theme, we also used Stuart’s family ‘coat of arms’ on all the wedding stationery, which really did give a ‘regal’ feel to everything!”

The result was a mixture of timeless elegance with an editorial flair, without overlooking a sense of boldness and femininity evident from the sartorial choices to the overall wedding design.

OUTDOOR wedding CEREMONY AT Palácio Fronteira

When you get married in Lisbon you should enjoy the great weather. The couple didn’t want to miss it for a second, so the whole day was spent outside. The outdoor ceremony took place at Palácio Fronteira’s long terrace. It’s a breathtaking spot for a wedding ceremony that combines distinctive architecture with beautiful gardens. It looks out of this time and world, as a modern fairytale locale for a dashing couple.

Emily walked down the aisle while Elvis Presley’s “Can’t Help Falling in Love”. The perfect iconic and cool touch for a romantic ceremony. 

Quando se casa em Lisboa, não há nada melhor do que desfrutar do excelente clima da capital. O casal não quis perder a oportunidade e organizou todo o casamento ao ar-livre. A cerimónia no exterior teve lugar no longo terraço do Palácio Fronteira. É um espaço incrível  para uma cerimónia de casamento que combina arquitetura única com belos jardins. Parece fora deste tempo e  deste mundo, como um conto de fadas moderno, ideal para um casal arrojado. Emily caminhou em direção ao altar enquanto  se ouvia Elvis Presley. O toque perfeito para uma cerimónia moderna.

PALÁCIO FRONTEIRA. One-of-a-kind Lisbon wedding Venue

Imagine a palace at the heart of the city of Lisbon. Amazing. Even more, if it rocks fancy red and blue architecture, magnificent tile panel, a beautiful lake, and lovely French gardens. And sculptures. Sculptures everywhere. Palácio Fronteira is perfect for lovers of architecture and art. It one-of-a-kind palace, not one of the super romantic palaces we encounter all over Europe. No, this is for the extraordinary couples. For the stylish people who value remarkable, out of the ordinary, experiences.

 

We mean, VALENTINO and MADONNA party there. Enough said. “The day we arrived at the palace there were hundreds of tea lights left out from a previous event, when the house manager came to greet us he said there was a huge party last night. He then asked me did I know ‘Valentino’? Confused I replied ‘what the shoes?’ He said yes, Mr. Valentino himself throw a party at the palace last night! To my utter amazement Madonna had been at the party just hours before our arrival!”

Imaginar um palácio no coração da cidade de Lisboa é, por si só, maravilhoso. Ainda mais, se o palácio for em tons de vermelho e azul, repleto de magníficos painéis de azulejos, lagos e belos jardins franceses. E esculturas. Esculturas em todo o lado. O Palácio Fronteira é perfeito para os amantes da arquitetura e de arte. É um palácio único, não é daqueles palácios super românticos que encontramos em toda a Europa. Não, é palácio para casais extraordinários. Para pessoas elegantes que valorizam experiências extraordinárias, fora do comum. Quer dizer, VALENTINO e MADONNA também já lá organizaram festas: “The day we arrived at the palace there were hundreds of tea lights left out from a previous event, when the house manager came to greet us he said there was a huge party last night. He then asked me did I know ‘Valentino’? Confused I replied ‘what the shoes?’ He said yes, Mr. Valentino himself throw a party at the palace last night! To my utter amazement Madonna had been at the party just hours before our arrival!”

AL FRESCO DINNER & PARTY at Palácio Fronteira’s Blue tiled Terrace

Emily confessed to us that her “favourite moment of the day was listening to the speeches from the four most important men in my life, my father, father-in-law, husband and the best man my little brother. I know I am going to be biased towards my own wedding, but they really were such amazing speeches. I managed to hold it together the whole day but I did shed a tear or two during the speeches at dinner.” 

It was truly emotional, but also great fun. The dinner was chic and the party was wild. And everyone literally enjoyed “A Sky Full of Stars”, the song played during the couple’s first dance.

I managed to hold it together the whole day but I did shed a tear or two during the speeches at dinner.” 

Foi realmente emocionante, mas também muito divertido. O jantar foi chique e a festa foi incrível. E todas as pessoas foram, literalmente, presenteadas com “A Sky Full of Stars”, a música que se ouviu durante a primeira dança do casal.
