Outdoor weddings – a trend that never fades

Planning an Outdoor Wedding

It is no wonder most couples choose to have their special day in an outdoor setting – since it allows for a magical and beautiful setting surrounded by nature, fresh air, sunlight (or starlight) and more freedom than an indoor space. Combine an outdoor wedding with the warm temperatures of the Algarve and you’ll have yourself a perfect day to remember forever.

Choosing the venue

One of the most challenging quests in wedding planning is finding the perfect venue. Seeing there is so much to choose from – beaches, gardens, farms – why not choose a venue that is the epitome of romance and tranquility? Having a wedding in a vineyard sets the mood for a good time, with both the beauty, privacy and liberty the natural scenery provides.

Quinta dos Vales is a well-established winery, known for its award-winning wine and unique sculptures scattered around the whole estate, guaranteeing a unique scenery for an unforgettable wedding. The wine estate has several venues for the couple to choose from, all of them surrounded by endless, vineyard-contoured slopes that act as the perfect backdrop for a special event of any size, be it a celebration under the stars at one of the outdoor spaces or on a covered panoramic terrace, overlooking the vineyards.


What to expect

Having had a lot of experience with organizing weddings, Quinta dos Vales has everything that is needed to turn the event into a success. Our on-site team has made sure that all the essentials are covered – from venue rental, food, drinks and catering service to having plenty of space for a band or a DJ setup for the guests to dance the night away.

There are several packages available for menus for the reception, which are sure to please everyone. The menus include everything you need to turn the event into a success without having to worry about anything. Besides the basic packages our catering team is also prepared to accommodate any special wishes you may have.

As a cherry on top, the winery offers something truly unique – for the wedding couple to create a whole barrel of their own wine, made to their preferences in a place they so carefully chose for their most special day!


Making the most out of the celebration

To ensure you get the most out of the big day and keep the party going for a bit longer, why not combine the celebration with a vacation in the always-sunny Algarve? Quinta dos Vales offers several  accommodation opportunities in which the happy couple (and their guests) can stay before and after the wedding.

Between 2 and 6-bedroom villas, 2-bedroom apartments, and villa suites, our accommodation units accommodate up to 100 guests considering no extra beds are placed.

Your guests will have the opportunity to take a swim in one of the pools of the estate – some of them being for exclusive use and others shared by more than one unit -, play a tennis or paddle tennis match in our well-kept court, have a game of mini-golf on our 9 hole putting green, play some boccia or simply go on a stroll among the vineyards to take in the beauty of nature.


The location of the estate is just a short drive away from all the major points of interest in the Algarve, which makes it convenient to get around and also works perfectly if you want to combine the trip with a bachelor or a bachelorette party.
