Casa do Largo Weddings

Categories: Caterers, Venues, Wedding Planners

Regions: Algarve

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.

Casa do Largo Weddings

It is easy to write a review about Casa do Largo as it has so much to offer.  

On arrival the first thing that hits you is the stunning Victorian style pergola, taking centre stage in the cobbled square, covered in pink bougainvillea housing a decorative fountain. The pergola offers much wanted shade and can seat up to 150 people for the wedding breakfast.

So the day starts with the ceremony in the pergola.  There is a fabulous focus point at one end for the Celebrant and Bride and Groom, and a chandelier can be hung to make it extra special.  The team at Casa do Largo will lay out all the chairs for your guests and assist with the decoration using your chosen colours and accessaries.

After the ceremony the Bride and Groom and all the guests have a group photo on the steps and the couple can then take a ride in the horse and carriage with a glass of champagne in hand.  The guests can then make their way to Florentina’s Bar for cocktails and canapés. 

While everyone is congratulating the happy couple and enjoying a refreshing drink, the team at Casa do Largo do their magic and transform the pergola from a ceremony space into the perfect reception area.  With tables laid out and decorated, the guests return to the pergola for an amazing wedding meal, followed by deserts served in vintage tea cups

After your meal and speeches, the guests can wonder the gardens and refresh ready for partying back in Florentina’s.  With a DJ or band, the party can go on into the wee hours.

The great thing about this wedding venue is how versatile it is.  Having Florentina’s Bar on the premises allows the day to move seamlessly between the bar and the pergola. Also, if you choose to have a winter wedding here in Portugal, you can make use of the inside space.

Dont forget this venue for Hen and Stag party’s too, or maybe a family dinner the night before your wedding. 

But I am going to finish with best bit.  The team at Casa do Largo are fabulous.  They work tirelessly to ensure your wedding day is amazing.  They are friendly, professional and will work with you to design the perfect wedding.

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!

We would like to thank Heather and all the staff at Casa Do Largo for our amazing Wedding day in August 2016. We decided to get married at Casa Do Largo after a visit there for a meal back in 2012 so we knew that the setting was beautiful but we never imagined the day would be as perfect as it was! We first spoke to Heather on the phone in 2014 and went out to visit her in 2015, from that visit onward's nothing was too much trouble, we used all the suppliers Heather suggested and they were all perfect in every way. The attention to detail was fantastic and the BBQ food!!!!!!! Each and every one of our guests commented on how nice it was, and there was so much of it, we just wished we could have managed to eat more than we did. Following the BBQ we had the ice cream cart, which went down a treat! We can't thank Heather and her team enough for such a wonderful Wedding day, and not just the day itself but for all our other visits during our stay in the Old Village. A very happy Emily and Scott x

We had our amazing wedding at Casa do Largo in June 2016 and could not fault anything. Heather, Dave and their staff were amazing from start to finish and the day was everything we hoped for and more. The environment is beautiful, we chose to get married outside under the Pagoda which was covered with flowers and decorations. Top class service from all of the staff, including an amazing cake made by Leanne (love lea cakes), and excellent gin making from Daniel. Heather was so attentive during the organisation, replying to emails rapidly and allowing us to store decorations at the venue. I brought over a bunch of things which she set up on the day. Now for the food, which was absolutely amazing - there was loads of it. We chose the BBQ for our main event, which was fantastic, as well as the desserts in teacups which everyone thought were delightful. Heather even went the extra mile for our vegan guest who had his very own cuisine to match! One guest asked if we were eating every hour, as the desserts were soon followed by an extensive cheeseboard and then an evening buffet/tapas combination. We couldn't have asked for a better service or a better wedding. Heather is clearly very experienced and talented in wedding planning, and was able to put us all at ease, even when organising a wedding abroad from the UK. Thanks again to you all for the best day of our lives. Steph and Chris Foster x

We can't thank Heather, Dave, Daniel & the rest of the team at Casa do Largo enough, you truly made not only our special day magical but catered for all needs throughout our whole trip. Heather is amazing & I personally can't thank her enough for all of her support from start to finish, she truly helped us create a day which we will never forget & one that was more than we could've ever envisaged. There is not one single moment we would change in hindsight & this is testament to all the hard work you guys put in. Every single one of our 120 guests all commented on how impressed they were with the whole day from the teamwork throughout to the helpfulness of everyone & definitely the amount/quality of the food. They all want to come back next year (so be prepared!!!) I would recommend Heather & the team to everyone, they really made our special day magical & one we will never forget, & for that we can't thank you all enough xxxxxx

What an amazing rollercoaster, planning the wedding has been! And we couldn’t have asked for a better location and better hosts than Heather and Dave at Casa do Largo! We got in touch with Heather at the end of July 2015, after we had stumbled upon her website when looking for wedding locations abroad. From what we could see from the gallery of photos, this place looked stunning – and when we decided to visit in November, our initial thoughts were confirmed – this place is truly stunning! We booked it for 30th of April 2016. Heather was an absolute delight to work with, from initial contact to all other arrangements afterwards. She is professional, yet very welcoming and friendly, you feel as if you’re part of the family planning the wedding with her. Being in the wedding industry so long, she has excellent contacts with suppliers which she kindly shared with us, so we didn’t have to look around ourselves. The photography was done by Nickie from Blush Photography, music by the resident DJ Colin, cake by Leanne, hair and makeup by Korine and the cart was pulled by Molly, a gorgeous mare. All were excellent and we were very pleased. In our wedding party we had guests from three different countries in Europe and accommodating everyone was essential – what luck to have such a venue in the midst of self-catering accommodation, so wonderfully presented. Everyone being close-by to each other enabled us to have group BBQs and get-togethers before and after the wedding. We also chose to have a welcome dinner at Casa do Largo on the evening before the wedding, to introduce everyone and get them talking – excellent idea by Heather and went down a treat with the guests. English breakfast on the day after the wedding was also a nice addition and everyone thoroughly enjoyed it. My husband’s father used to be a pastor, so he conducted the ceremony for us, which was a lovely experience to have and in such a wonderful setting as well. Everyone from our wedding party commented on how beautiful the location is, how delicious the food and wine selection was, how smoothly everything was run and on the overall atmosphere being very relaxed. We cannot thank Heather and her family enough for making this day so wonderful and special for us! Martiine & Vince Mayeur xx

Dear Heather I just wanted to say a big thankyou for our beautiful wedding day on the 3rd September 2015. All the effort and attention to detail didn't go unnoticed. Your lovely family made it so special for us and catered to all our needs. The buffet menu was perfect for the hot day we had in September there was plenty of food for everyone. The surroundings and the ambience at Casa do largo was just perfect exactly how we imagined it would be. It's always difficult to organise a wedding from a different country but we pulled it of in 5 weeks because Portugal is a great place to get things organised quickly and swiftly. Big thankyou once again! Take care Ray and Diane Sanchez

This was a day that I have been looking forward to for a number of years - since a child actually. It was made the best day ever by Heather and her team at Casa do Largo in Vilamoura. For 20 years I have been coming here, several times a year. Once we got engaged I knew the only place to get married would be my most favourite place in the world ! I met with Heather 6 months before the big day, and keeping in touch with any ideas I had by email along with several visits before hand. I had a good idea what I wanted, and Heather was happy and able to carry out everything I wanted. The pagoda looked out of this world decorated better than I could have done it myself. Heather and her family were more than happy to help in any which way they could, heather even took me to the hairdressers for my trial. The ceremony was just as i imagined, we were then taken to the horse and carriage for photos and my daughter even came along for the ride. When we returned all our guests were having drinks and nibbles then photographs were taken (which i must add were all amazing). No fuss and no stress. We even had pictures down at the beach with our bridal party, which everybody was more than happy to accommodate. Father Paul carried out our nuptials and even included a blessing for my daughter and my niece which was a lovely touch. The BBQ mains and buffet in the evening was beautiful and everyone commented on how amazing the food was. Our guests were gobsmacked at just how beautiful it is in the old village, and many also said they would be returning. As i type this I'm quite emotional that our wedding has been and gone, It was the best day of our life's with amazing memories that i will treasure forever. We will be returning with a crowd for our first anniversary which I look forward too. I will see you before then for my 3 yearly trip. All our love and thank you again !! April

Dear Heather, Thank you so much for all your hard work organising & hosting our fabulous wedding. It was a fantastic day & we can't thank you & your whole team enough for all the hard work they put in. Your son Dan did an excellent job looking after our guests, he is a real credit to you. We look forward to coming back to Casa do Largo soon. Lots of Love Emma & Chris xxx

Shane and I got engaged in April 2014. We live in New Zealand now (where Shane is from) but we met in London, so the majority of our friends and all of my family live in the UK. We wanted to get married somewhere 'neutral' to both families, but since the majority of our guests were coming from the UK and only a handful from New Zealand and Australia, we decided on a destination wedding in Portugal. In doing lots of Googling of various Portugal wedding websites, I came across Casa do Largo. Three things instantly attracted me to the place for our wedding venue: the stunning flowers of the pergola, the picturesque Georgian-style villa backdrops and, last but not least, the horse and carriage. I've always wanted a horse and carriage at my wedding ever since I was a horse-mad little girl! What really sealed the deal on Casa do Largo for me, though, were the reviews of Heather's event management. All the brides were saying how much Heather had done to give them a perfect day. Well, after having experienced it for myself, I could not agree more. From the time Heather first Skyped us in May 2014, until the night of our wedding when she made such an effort to go above and beyond - even guarding the door as we practiced our first dance - Heather was a super star. And in fact, the whole team at Casa do Largo were incredibly friendly and helpful. Leanne even made our amazing wedding cake! Nothing was too much trouble for Heather, including meeting us a year before the wedding (well living in New Zealand, we don't make too many trips to Europe!) She took us very patiently though all the event organisation, including sampling the wines on offer. We then shipped a lot of our wedding accessories over a few months before the wedding date and Heather happily kept them safe for us. Heather even organised a balloon drop for our first dance which was awesome. A couple of days before the big day, Heather went through our table arrangements meticulously, as well as helped us rehearse the ceremony. She has such a calm way about her that even though I had more bridesmaids and groomsmen than most wedding parties have at Casa do Largo (including lots of children which could have been a disaster in the August Portugal heat), Heather just thought outside the box and organised where they should all stand and sit so that everything worked perfectly. We could not have wished for a more special day, from the beautiful food to all the small but thoughtful details like the fingerprint tree and pretty ice cream stand. The newly renovated reception area was also a big bonus, with plenty of room for our 60 guests to have a really great party into the early hours. Heather - Shane and I are so grateful for the support you and your team gave to us. Thank you for everything and we look forward to seeing you in The Old Village for an anniversary visit soon :) xx

We'd like to say a huge Thankyou to Heather, Dave, Daniel and the whole team at Casa do Largo for taking what was in my imagination and making it into reality. Every aspect was covered and made easy, people asked how it was that I could be so laid back in the run up and the answer was simple, Heather had everything covered. Casa do Largo offers a picturesque setting with so many options to really tailor it to your wants making the most unique day, nothing is to much trouble. Not only a great wedding destination but also a great holiday resort.. We can't wait to come back and I think our 70+ guests were all in agreement. We chose casa do largo for our wedding ceremony/reception 28/08/15 and how glad are we! Heather and Dave were fantastic from start to finish and made everything so easy, from allowing us to bring our own decorations and store them for over a year to helping us find the perfect hair stylist, cake, photographer, celebrant, d.j, rentals, the list is endless to the services they provided and all at a very reasonable price! Well our parents were definitely happy!! Heather took on-board everything I said and nothing was impossible and with Dave's help turned my dream into reality, it helps that there location is set in the beautiful old village, with its cobblestones and beautiful flowers, however it's there efforts and their teams which made our day unique and like no other!! Holly and Danny

Id like to say a massive thank you to Heather, Dave, Daniel, and the team at Casa do Largo for the most beautiful wedding day on September the 27th. From the moment we booked it a year ago Heather was wonderful and so helpful with the planning. It all came together on the big day, and there is not one thing I can criticise. The décor was beautiful and the food was great. Our guests where blown away at how lovely it was with some guests saying it was the best wedding they had ever been too. Now that's special! If anyone ever wanted to get married in Portugal I would recommend Casa do Largo in a heartbeat. A truly special place that me and my husband will continue to visit in years to come. Thanks again to everyone at Casa do Largo Love Lisa and Chris xxX

We stayed in the village to look at a few Venues in Vilamoura but were lucky enough to see a wedding at Casa Do Largo , which meant we looked no further; it was such a beautiful day we knew this was our venue. Our wedding was in the making for just over two years due to my dad passing suddenly. Heather was so understanding and kind, her husband even made Cherubs for us to have hanging in the pagoda to go with my Angel theme. No matter how many emails I sent Heather she always replied as soon as she could with very helpful answers, I even sent a whole lot of bits and bobs over and she just took it in without a problem. Heather is an amazing woman who just does not rest till you have your perfect day; she goes above and beyond for you. Heather & Team - Thank you all so much for an amazing day and all your help, a day we will cherish forever. Love Dawn & Damien

The Perfect Wedding What can I say ? My wife and I visit the Old Village two or three times a year, initially as a couple but now with our own family. We were there last year when we discovered Heather at Casa Do Largo was now doing weddings. After a relaxed conversation with Heather we felt confident enough to provisionally discuss dates, ( in fairness we had been engaged for nearly six years at this point). Heather from this moment on, worked her magic. She organised or gave us the choices to sort all the decorations, photographer, florist, food, cake, accommodation for guests, drinks, entertainment, along with numerous other things you would become bored with reading about. The day was perfect and coming from someone who is very particular, that is saying something. It exceeded our expectations massively. From the start of the day, with champagne delivered by Dan in top hat and tales to the guests staying on the old village, the ceremony itself, the white grand piano, the horse drawn carriage, the amazing food/wine/champagne, the entertainment both through the day and night but most importantly the beautiful and genuinely caring hospitality the whole team put on. It was utterly amazing. We were very particular that despite the occasion, we wanted an intimate, relaxed day that was about everyone enjoying themselves. We had a huge variety of ages from very young children to grannies, couples, singles and families. Despite this tall order the day itself just felt right, everywhere you looked people were smiling, laughing and just having a ball. Having got home and talked so fondly about the day with many of the guests, having seen the pictures and the fact that some of our guests, many who had not met previously, have now gone on to become friends, I think it is safe to say that request was delivered in full. IT WOULD OF BEEN IMPOSSIBLE TO ACHIEVE THIS WITHOUT HEATHER. In terms of Heather and her families dedication, the day we booked was actually Heather's birthday ( I won't reveal her age ). It was only later that we discovered it was Heather's birthday but we had been quite insistent on the day we wanted and without question Heather was fully behind our choice of date. To spend a special birthday with my wife, I and our motley crew of friends and family means she must be mad but I suppose that shows how important every guests happiness means to her. We are returning for our wedding anniversary next year and many of our guests have asked if they come and join us, even if just for a few days. The day, the venue and the hospitality from the guys at Casa Do Largo was really THAT good !

Casa do largo is a magical place to have a wedding. The whole day was beautiful and everything went so smoothly. Each part of the wedding and the different spaces that were available to us was set up with matching decorations and everything seemed to be seamless. I didn't have to worry about anything just moved through the day being wowed by heather and her team and what they managed. Everyone clearly worked very hard as all my guests kept commenting about how beautiful everything was. The food was amazing and plentiful, we had the BBQ Buffett and food keep coming. I never heard one complaint even from the fussy eaters! Moving on to the terrace area to have desserts , again everything set up to my theme and looking amazing. Lastly we moved to the new bar which looks so opulent with the gorgeous chandeliers and fairy lights everywhere. Heather, your son is amazing. Any little thing we asked he was off doing it, cleaning the baby's bottle, organising taxis home, making sure my dad who was a little worse for wear was ok!. All your staff was extremely helpful and lovely. I never worried about anything and would never of changed anything either. It's a beautiful venue and I am so happy that we chose to have our special day there. Thank you ever so much. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend your venue, the photos speak volumes!

Thank you Heather and the Casa do Largo team for the great job you all did for Samantha and Paul’s wedding on 12th July. As a regular visitor to the Old Village I had no hesitation in recommending the Casa do Largo as a perfect wedding venue to my daughter. Everyone had such a wonderful time and I have had so many lovely comments on what an amazing venue it is and how fantastic the service and food was for the wedding breakfast and evening party. The day was stress-free and everything went to plan, it really was perfect! Your help friendliness and professionalism in the months leading up to the actual day via emails and in our meetings was greatly appreciated. I must also say a special mention to Dave (your husband) who was so very helpful and friendly in all aspects from the set-up, service and in taking on role of the Wedding MC. Thank you for doing what you do, we had a fantastic day and night at Casa do Largo. Best Wishes to you all, Karen and Gary Laird x

“The perfect setting for a perfect wedding and so many happy memories to treasure” Dear Heather and all of the staff at Casa do Largo Thank you so much for making our July 12th wedding day everything we could have asked for. Everything looked amazing and was set up so beautifully for both the ceremony and the reception, and the setting for the evening party in the newly refurbished Florentinas bar was gorgeous. The service, food and atmosphere were all absolutely perfect and so many people have continued to comment on how great a place the Old Village is to return for a holiday. All our guests were impressed with the whole reception at Casa do Largo which is truly a fantastic place. We could not have asked for anything more and are so pleased we chose Case do Largo for our wedding ceremony and reception venue. Thanks again for everything you did in the lead up to and on our wedding day

Myself and my partner decided we wanted to get married in Portugal in April 2015. We started planning but were let down in October 2014 by a restaurant we were going to use for our reception which totally stressed us. So only having 6 months I then got on the internet to try and find somewhere that we could hold our reception. I joined Your Portugal Wedding CHAT forum and the first person they recommended was a lady called Heather from Casa Do Largo in Vilamoura. I emailed Heather and the first thing that made me feel at ease was her quick response so i think i knew from that day Casa Do Largo was going to be our venue! I looked at pictures which were gorgeous but still dont fully show the true beauty and magic of this place! I booked a flight and my first stop getting off the flight was at Casa Do Largo. Heather was there waiting and prepared for every question i had she totally blew me away as she knows her stuff when it comes to weddings also the place is gorgeous and it was just perfect for us! So i paid the deposit and booked our date. From that day i loved every minute of wedding planning as heather was always there to help shes an angel! On our wedding day it was just magically Heather and her family couldnt do enough and everything was organised and the day run so smooth it was perfect. Heather gave me the wedding day that i had been dreaming of from i was a little girl so Heather and Dave thank you so much from myself and Brendan. We will definitely be celebrating anniversaries at Casa Do Largo! All our love Mr & Mrs Burns

Hi Guys Thank you so much for the most epic wedding! My husband Mark and I had chose Vilamoura as our wedding destination as Marks family holiday here every year and love it. I came across Heather at Casa Do Largo via facebook and fell in love with the venue. We where looking for a rustic, romantic venue with character and thats what we got. Mark and i decided to run away to get married with my two kids & very close family but 40 of our friends and family decided to run away with us. We where overwhelmed and heather was amazing at helping us have a beautiful wedding day and a fantastic family holiday! Our day was to be all outdoors but rain on the day had us inside....this was no problem for Heather and her staff as they turned everything over so quickly. We where lucky that the sun came out and again Heather & staff quickly turned it back outside for desserts and cutting of the cake. Our whole day was so relaxing and even with the last minute changes everything flowed so beautifuly. Our ceremony was so romantic and Father Paul Luckman included a blessing for my kids Molly & Henry which was beautiful. He had entertained my guests while they waited on my arrival and he really got to know Mark & I before our day which was great as on our day it felt like our ceremony was being conducted by a friend. To be honest Heather and her staff where a part of our family from the start and i will never forget their faces before i walked down the aisle...it was like my closest friends being there to see me off. We enjoyed our beautiful wedding day, the food was amazing, pictures where beautiful the day was the best of my life! The evening came and it was time to party as a family we love to dance and we danced the night away, the atmosphere was electric! We played a limbo, games, we had a dressing up corner and my husband suprised me with the dirty dancing "lift" we had a ball and all who attended had the best night ever! Casa Do Largo is in an amazing location, we all stayed in the Old Village as its beautiful and only a 10/15 min walk from the Marina. From the moment we arrived untill we left Heather was on hand and really helped us pull together the most epic wedding ever! Our 40 family & friends came to portugal for a wedding but came home after having one of the best holidays and being part of the most epic wedding day ever. We cant praise this location and the people enough, Heather can help create the wedding of your dreams and im one of many brides who have shared this beautiful venue for our special day. Mark and I look back at our day and get the most amazing flash back memories! We cant wait to get our wedding album to re live it all over again. Heather & Co you guys rock and thank you for helping us and our crazy families have the best day and the best memories of our lives. See you all in october for our 1st wedding anniversary! Lots of love Mark & Pamela Craig Graham xx

First of all I wanted to thank Heather and her family; if it wasn’t for them our wedding party would have never been as amazing as it was. I wasn’t until August last year when me and my partner decided to get married but we didn’t know whether to hold the event back in the UK where I’m originally from or in Portugal which was where we were both staying. August was my husband’s birthday and I wanted to take him somewhere different, when you’re staying in the Algarve in Vilamoura which is where Casa Do Largo is located you don’t always want to visit or dine the marina, I decided to go for walk . I had heard many people speak about ‘The Old Village’ but I hadn’t a clue where it was. I must have been walking 15 minutes I stopped and looked up at a sign which said The Old Village. I was amazed, it was beautiful regenerated and stylish. The small cobbled Portuguese paths where covered in walls of fresh colorful roses and handmade tree shapes. I come to a turning and there stood a pretty pagoda full of purple flowers and a cute water fountain. I approached a waiter & asked him to see the menu, I was really amazed just how near I was to such a stunning restaurant yet I since living in the same place for over one year and a half I never knew it was here. I then knew straight away that this is the best place to take my husband for his birthday lunch, it was different, off the marina and very, very peaceful. I started my walk back home to my apartment and thoughts really come to my head. I began thinking about my wedding. I really knew from just seeing this restaurant where I’d just been that it was the perfect place for me and my partner to hold it. Once I got back home, I began looking online the restaurant as a website and it’s very easy to understand. I then saw link to horse and carriage rides, this was when I really become interested. Could this place really have this service to offer their guests? Yes! I got straight on the phone getting the contact details from the website and called Heather. Heather answered with the friendliest and welcoming voice. I just began asking loads of questions. My conversation was over and I hung up the phone feeling so happy. My partner was working till late but I really wanted to tell someone about where I’d just been and what the owner of the restaurant has just told me. My partner came home from work that night and I didn’t say a word, I knew that I had to wait to take him there on this birthday so it could see for himself just how beautiful the place is. I took him there on his birthday for afternoon tea, and that’s when we started to talk about our wedding, I got so excited I just wanted to know the date, is it even possible and how much everything would cost. Cut the long story short. We decided to do it! Our wedding was held on a very beautiful sunny December 5th 2014. Had around 35 guests which she easily catered for very well. The planning of the wedding for me was very difficult as I done most of it by myself as my family lived in the UK. We didn’t have very long to plan everything as we left the decision of having the wedding in Portugal to late also the date we choose was very near and came so quick. I met up with Heather to discuss my plans and how I saw the vision for my wedding, she was very professional and also wasn’t afraid of making her opinion too. She is so relaxed, laid back and such a pleasure to be around. All brides know how stressful it is to plan your wedding you all know how you want it to which is well not just for the couple but for your guests. When you have your wedding abroad you also wanted the guests travelling far or near to feel welcome and have the most amazing experience whilst there. Having many years of experience in the UK and in Portugal Heathers communication was always on point. When you are planning a wedding the person who is responsible for holding your reception you always want to make sure they inform you of everything which what they are doing for you, if things go wrong and what they need extra in order for them to make the reception that you dream of. Heather is very easy to contact via email or telephone, at home or even overseas. She also has contacts for many other suppliers which are very handy for brides e.g. flowers, cakes, photographers and even a DJ. We choose to have our ceremony in a Catholic church which was also beautiful but if you want yours in the pagoda you can just speak to Heather and she can arrange this for you. The day of our wedding was beautiful; we decided to have the horse and carriage and it was like a fairytale, after the church we both went to the beach for our photos but then we arranged for the horse and carriage to meet us nearer the restaurant. Honestly I was lost for words when I first entered the room. Heather had done such an amazing job. She really is talented; my family was really speechless as well. The room was just how I pictured it even better! My theme was pink, vintage shabby chic and she really did this well. I made use of cute vintage china tea cups and saucers, with some of the things I gave her she used them very well inside the restaurant. For started we choose a mix plates followed by traditional roast beef dinner as I know all English people like this but our Brazilian guests also loved it. You get very good helpings as well! The after party was very convenient; Heather allows you and guests to carry on your celebrations in her bar area. This was very good as after you eat you can just carry on the party without having to go far. We had the DJ Heather arranged for us and he was brilliant, all of the latest singles in the charts and he really got everyone up on their feet. The bar downstairs is perfect space for you and your guests it isn’t big and it isn’t small. With easy access to lovely outside terrace. There probably loads more that I could say about Heather and her family and how amazing she did with the organizing and making of our fairytale wedding but I could be here forever. But really if you’re planning your future wedding for months to come or years then I really do suggest you call her or email her because she is amazing when it comes to weddings! I really can’t thank-you enough for your help over the months before the big day and the way you held the reception! If you’re planning a wedding abroad then this is the place to be.

My husband Glyn and I (Rachel) visited Casa De Largo September 2012 for the first time and we fell in love with the place and after a meal and a champagne carriage ride, we decided to book there and then our wedding for May 2014. Heather, family and staff were so accommodating and helpful to our wishes and requests, especially Heather keeping closely in contact with each other throughout the preceding months leading up to the wedding. We cannot thank Heather enough for the wonderful day we had, the food, welcome drink and the evening disco, the day could not have gone better. We enjoyed it so much that we will be back May 2015 to celebrate our 1st wedding anniversary. Thank you so much, it is something we will never forget and you made our day for us.

A day I have been looking forward to for a number of years. It was made the best day ever by Heather and her team at Casa do Largo in Vilamoura. I met with Heather 12 months before the big day, and keeping in touch with any ideas I had. I had a good idea what I wanted, and Heather was happy and able to carry out everything I wanted. When I arrived on the big day a little late I couldn't stop smiling. The pagoda looked stunning, it was dressed perfectly, the guests all looked lovely, especially my family and husband to be. They were all seated waiting and the atmosphere shone through the beautiful setting. The ceremony was perfect, we were then taken to the horse and carriage for photos. As we went off for a ride for more photos, our guests were taken off to an area for them to have drinks and canapés. After the canopés and group photos, the pegoda was set for us to sit down for the meal, the tables and chairs looked just how I had pictured. Beautiful. The meal was fantastic I couldn't fault a thing. After the meal we were ready for the evening. The DJ set up and the children's entertainer had arrived. The day had gone to plan and I couldn't have asked for a better day only that I wanted it to last for ever. Thank you so much. Vicky and Jason ….

In September, we had our perfect wedding, thanks to the fantastic efforts of Heather and her team. From making our wedding cake to ensuring the whole venue looked amazing, Heather organised everything. She was such a huge help in planning our wedding from the UK and it would not have been possible (or anywhere near as stress-free!) without her. Her endless list of contacts for everything we needed was priceless and she gave us so many suggestions for how the day could run (as we didn't have a clue!). Heather's relaxing and calming influence ensured that the day ran smoothly. Everything looked beautiful, the food was delicious, and everyone commented on what a lovely, laid back wedding it was, which was exactly what we wanted, and much more reasonable than we expected. All in all, if we were to do it all again, we wouldn't change anything……. Thank you love Jenny and Craig

Words cannot begin to describe what a magical, picturesque and romantic place Casa Do Largo is. The perfect place in the sun! From the moment we got engaged on the horse drawn carriage we knew that this was the place to hold our Wedding! From beginning to end the planning was great fun to organise and this was all down to the help of Heather & Dave, the owners of Casa Do Largo. They made things simple for us and we were given so many options with food menus, drinks, table lay-outs – you name it – they done it! The staff are all truly amazing! I will look back at our engagement and Wedding day with the most fantastic memories…Casa Do Largo truly holds a dear place in our hearts and we would recommend it for any intimate occasion, big or small! We will definitely be renewing our vows back in the beautiful cobbled streets in years to come – Casa Do Largo made all our dreams come true! Nick & Gill Morgan

We would like to take this opportunity to say thank you and your team for the excellent manner in which your company brought our dream come true. My husband is Portuguese and I come from Hungary but we are living in the UK. When the wedding came up for me it was not the question to have it in Portugal. The question was how we gonna manage, I don't speak Portuguese (yet) and I don't know how the wedding are going over there. I was online watching web site and the miracle happened. Found Heather and her company Casa Do Largo. We got touch by email and couple of email after by phone as well. We where planned to go over there to see and fix couple of things, but during this time we found out I am pregnant with our first baby :) and time was too tight go for holiday. It was just 1 week before the wedding when we met with Heather and see the place where the wedding is gonna be, and the first impression was OMG.....just loved it..... we saw pictures before, but to see, to feel what is around was amazing. Loved every moment, we started to work on the small details how is gonna go, and everything was what we wanted. Was not question why , just "how do you imagine? " We just wanted to say thank you for creating the best wedding ceremony in the world !! It came out so beautifully perfect and that is thanks to you. We got so many compliments from our guests saying that was the best wedding ceremony they've ever seen and how much they loved you, you were a hit !! So again thank you so much for helping in making our wedding We will recommend you to our friends and everyone that want make beautiful wedding ceremony.
