Quinta dos Machados is one of the most traditional Portuguese venues we have worked with but with a modern attitude to weddings. Some super traditional places can be very set in their ways but not this Quinta. It approaches each wedding as a special personalised day that is all about you. We love that about them.

Located in the Mafra region, this venue is just 25-30min away from Lisbon city centre. Extremely easy to get to so don’t worry about your guests getting lost! There is also accommodation on-site with a modern spa hotel on the property, so guests can stay over if they want to.

It a charming venue with a classic Portuguese look. There is even an area that reminds you of a sweet Portuguese village!

For nature lovers, this venue in enveloped by a classic woodland. It is the perfect place to host your ceremony in the depth of the moody forest, surrounded by ancient trees. You can then have your reception and meal in the outdoor patio in front of the main event space, or in the event space itself. There is a lot of variety here. The main event space is a classic, blank space barn that you can customise from the ground up. For a gorgeous intimate space with plenty of potential, Quinta dos Machados is one to watch.
