Casa do Largo Weddings
Located in Vilamoura’s elegant Old Village, Casa do Largo is an award winning venue surrounded by pristine neo-classical architecture and tropical gardens.
Weddings usually take place out-of-doors in a beautifully appointed Victorian-style pagoda which can comfortably accommodate very large parties. Graced by a canopy of bougainvillea and a tinkling fountain, the bride and groom take their place on a wedding stage beneath a floral archway.
After the ceremony, furnishings in the pagoda are rearranged for the wedding breakfast; every attention is given to the décor including visual effects that fit into the wedding theme. The venue can be provided free of charge, also available our charming horse-drawn carriage complete with liveried coachmen.
Experienced wedding planner and owner of the venue, Heather Turner, provides complimentary advice on every aspect of the wedding day, including other facilities available on site. A handsome dining room is suitable for indoor receptions and Casa do Largo’s separate wine and tapas bar with garden terraces is ideal for late night dancing. Heather also offers impressive menu suggestions priced from 30 euros per person to include food and wine.
Recipient of the Portuguese Award for Tourism, the culinary standard at Casa do Largo is high with meals served silver service, barbecue style or as buffets. Specialising in modern Mediterranean cuisine and traditional British cooking, arrangements can be made for vegetarian and children’s meals. Special recommendations for the wedding breakfast include the summer buffet table followed by strawberries and chocolate fountains, the barbecue feast with homemade ice creams and cupcakes served from the restaurant’s delightful sweetie cart and most sumptuous of all, the silver service wedding banquet with a selection of desserts presented in vintage china cups and saucers.
Heather’s extensive background in catering and as a wedding planner in the UK and Portugal enables her to provide knowledgeable advice. With twenty three years of local experience she is able to make suggestions and arrange for photographers, florists, entertainers and other professionals to meet with the prospective bride and groom before the wedding. Other special requests - such as beach photography on the wedding day or arranging a moonlit cruise from Vilamoura’s marina – can be planned in advance by Heather.

We had the most amazing wedding day, which totally exceeded all our expectations, and all thanks to Heather and her wonderful team at the beautiful Casa Do Largo. We found Casa Do Largo when we visited Vilamoura on holiday, and decided there and then that we wanted to get married in such a beautiful, relaxed location. Heather helped us plan everything, from celebrants and photographer, to menus, drinks, and anything else we needed. We kept in contact via email all year, and went to visit Heather to talk through our ideas. We can’t emphasise enough how much Heather and the team took the stress out of the day- everything was slick and planned throughout, we didn’t have to worry or think about a thing apart from enjoying our special day… Although lots of weddings take place there we felt we got such a personal experience, with the tailored to exactly what we wanted. The whole experience certainly exceeded all expectations. The horse and carriage was a beautiful moment alone after the ceremony, which we will never forget, and there are so many beautiful and picturesque photo spots dotted throughout the old village We brought 25 family members with us, who all were blown away with the relaxed occasion, and we received so many compliments about the meal- all the guests agreed that it was by far the best ever wedding meal they had ever had- and plenty of it!! A huge heartfelt thanks to Heather and the team, we had a day we will never forget !!
We held our wedding here on 04/04/2017 and it was everything we dreamed off and more, stunning venue and beautifully decorated Pagoda that gave it the wow factor, heather and her team did a fantastic job from start to finish, can't thank you all enough, the food was amazing and the day and night was an absolute dream, thanks to everyone that was involved, we will definitely be back to visit you all soon, Mr & Mrs Kay xx
We had our wedding at Casa Do Largo on the 31st May 17, I can't even begin to explain how amazing Heather, Dave & Daniel were. From the moment we met Heather 17 months before our wedding day she was so helpful! She kept in contact via email and recommended various suppliers for the day. Heather made sure our day went perfectly even when faced with a little hiccup which left the day running a little late, her and all the staff worked tirelessly to get back on track, with most of the party not even realising what happened. The weather was perfect and the pagoda looked beautiful, all of our guest loved the food and and trust me some of them are very hard to please. Personally the bbq salmon was the best I have ever tasted! I'd recommend the guys to anyone wanting to get married, casa do largo is a beautiful venue and has amazing staff to go with it. Thank you again! Tanya & Grant
Heather and her team are totally amazing, from start to finish she was an absolute star. The attention to detail was amazing, the venue was stunning. Thank you so much xxxx HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!!! Xxx
Thank you so much Heather and all of the team for making our wedding day so perfect! From nearly 2 years ago when we first booked our date everything has come together seamlessly. We couldn't falter a thing with our day, the venue looked absolutely stunning, the flowers were in full bloom and everyone was blown away at how beautiful it was. The BBQ was gorgeous, plenty of it as well! The service was fantastic, all of our guests were saying it was "the best wedding" they'd been to! Such a beautiful setting in a picturesque part of Vilamoura, we cannot thank you enough for everything you did in preparation and on the day itself, we wish we could do it all again! I will share the photos with you when we have them back from Garrett! Thank you again, Mr & Mrs Worthington
A huge thank you to Heather at Casa Do Largo for making our wedding day so perfect. We visited the venue a few years ago and fell in love with it and I feel so lucky to have got married at the most pretty and beautiful place. Heather has been excellent at helping us plan our dream wedding by keeping in touch over email and putting us in touch with florist, hairdresser, celebrant, cake maker, photographer, DJ and saxophonist and all of them were outstanding. All of the staff at Casa Do Largo were so helpful and couldn't do enough for our guests. We chose a BBQ for our wedding breakfast and what a hit it was with our guests, everyone really enjoyed it! Thanks again and we shall be back for our anniversary Emma xxx
We had our wedding here on the 10th August. Heather and her team ensured that everything was perfect for us. The venue looked amazing and the food was way beyond our expectations in terms of quality and sheer amount; everyone commented on it! Our guests had as good a time us, with many of them saying how every little detail was thought of and catered for. We can't thank you all enough for making our dream wedding a reality.

Thank you to Heather, her family and all the staff at Casa Do Largo/Florentinas for making our wedding day so perfect. The attention to detail from the time we booked the wedding to the day we left The Old Village was excellent. Nothing was ever any trouble and the friendliness and the little touches from staff helped to make our day so special. The atmosphere throughout the day and night was something we'll never forget. All our guests have said how much they enjoyed the day as well as the other times/nights that we spent at both venues. The venue and flowers were beautiful and the food was amazing. We knew that it would be amazing but it even exceeded our expectations. The day flowed like a dream and we wouldn't go back and change a thing about our day. We would recommend getting married at Casa Do Largo with Heather to anyone as it will be a day you will never forget. Danny & Laura
In 2014 I surprised my other half with a holiday to The Old Village, Vilamoura for his 30th birthday. We completely fell in love with the place as soon as we arrived. One evening we had a meal in Casa Do Largo and noticed a slideshow of wedding photographs playing in the restaurant, we both agreed it would be such an ideal and beautiful place to get married. A year later we got engaged in Venice and we both said right away we just had to get married at Casa Do Largo! I got in touch with Heather and booked the wedding for 16TH September 2016, which left us with just 11 months to plan everything! I imagined planning a wedding abroad from home would be super stressful but thanks to Heather it was so easy, she provided me with a list of fantastic suppliers and we were able to book everything we wanted with ease. We got our flowers from Suzannah’s Flowers, music by Charlie from Kaleidosonix, cake by Leanne, photography by Nickie at Blush Photography, hair and make-up by the girls at Unique and Chic weddings, and Becky de Sancha as our celebrant. Heather was always just an email away, answering all my endless questions and putting my mind at ease! We only met Heather a couple of days before the wedding and she is so professional and has such an eye for detail, talking through every little thing that would happen on the day. On the day of the wedding we were both stunned at how absolutely gorgeous the venue looked, Heather and family had done an incredible job, it looked even more beautiful than we had ever imagined it would!! The day ran so smoothly from start to finish, the staff are all so professional and helpful. For food we went for the BBQ meal followed by desserts served on the ice cream cart in vintage china. The food was absolutely delicious and there was plenty of it! All our guests absolutely loved it! We had our evening party in Florentinas and had the most amazing night dancing the night away. We really did have the time of our lives, it was so perfect from start to finish. All our guests said it was the best wedding they had ever been to. We can’t thank Heather and family enough for their hard work and for making our wedding day so truly amazing and unforgettable. We are just so sad it is all over and we just wish we could do it all over again!!! Thank you so much for everything, Victoria and Lloyd (Mr and Mrs Hunter!) Thank you victoria x
Our day was perfect from start to finish...As I wanted a Church Wedding Heather suggested St Luke's in Palhagueira...it was a little church up in the mountains with fantastic views. Heather arranged transport with Paulo @ Old Village Tours & Transfers...our wedding car was stunning & beautifully decorated & the drivers Hugo & Artur were immaculately dressed & really professional!. The vicar Mark Wilson delivered a wonderful service & everybody said how amazing it was...we arrived @ the Pagoda and my jaw dropped...I could not believe how beautiful it looked...We had opted for a sit down Barbecue & the food was amazing. Heather & the team had thought of everything...it was a fantastic day & we will never forget it!
Heather was a fantastic wedding planner. We really valued how comfortable she made us feel, her flexibility and her incredible organisational skills in ensuring the day's celebrations went off without a hitch. It was a fairy tale wedding and we will remember the day for the rest of our lives. Thanks Heather, we couldn't have done it without you!
