We warmly welcome enquiries from couples interested in celebrating their wedding in St George’s Church, Lisbon, or in St Paul’s Church, Estoril, or at their preferred location in the region. So far locations have included quintas, palaces and vineyards in Lisbon, Sintra, Palmela, Estremoz, Evora, Ericeira, Cascais, and the list is growing! You may be looking to have large numbers of guests or you may prefer a quiet blessing for just yourselves; it could be the big wedding service or an anniversary renewal of vows. Our chaplains (Priest/Pastor) would be very happy to work with you and create the celebration you are looking for. We can offer either a celebration of a wedding following a legal marriage ceremony in the couple´s own country or here in Portugal; or we can solemnise the marriage in the service, provided the couple comply with Portuguese law, which requires a preceding visit to a civil registry office (in person or by an advocate) and notarised translations of documentation. This legal work must be arranged by the couple themselves. Venues other than the Churches of St George or St Paul must also be arranged by the couple. We are pleased to celebrate wedding blessings for both Anglicans and Christians of all denominations. It may be possible to conduct some of the service in Portuguese if that is required. For all enquiries, please contact Rev Iain Bendrey: weddings@lisbonanglicans.org. Fees for weddings held in the Chaplaincy are the euro equivalent of those set by the Archbishop’s Council and approved by Parliament for the Church of England. There may be additional travel costs depending on distance. Links to Documentation Booking Form Order of Service Template
