The sun was shining brightly on a beautiful organic garden in Portugal's Douro Valley for Danielle and Philip's epic wedding welcome party. Guests were immediately immersed in the vibrant atmosphere of a traditional Mediterranean festival, greeted with local food and drinks in the style of an open-air market. The bubbling excitement of what was to come was palpable, marking the start of an unforgettable destination wedding weekend at Six Senses Douro Valley.

Over to destination wedding photographer and Fine Art Curation member, Diane Sotero to tell us more about it: "As guests sipped on delicious Portuguese wines, they were treated to an unforgettable culinary experience that showcased the region’s rich culinary heritage. Fresh seafood, artisanal cheeses, and freshly baked bread filled the air with mouth-watering aromas. The sommeliers were on hand to guide guests through the wine tastings, sharing their knowledge and passion for the region’s wines.

"The decor featured raw materials, fresh flowers in water, and little market counters with showcooking, all of which highlighted the region’s rich culinary traditions. The long tables and bistro tables encouraged a shared dining experience that is central to the Mediterranean lifestyle.

"The centerpiece of the evening was a live performance by a Brazilian band that brought the sounds of Portuguese singing to life. As the sun set, the natural colors and greenery of the garden were accented by festive lighting, creating a magical ambiance that transported guests to another time and place.

"The welcome party was a true celebration of life, love, and the joy of gathering together - the perfect way to start the weekend. The Six Senses philosophy of slow living with nature and sustainability was evident in every aspect of the evening, making it an unforgettable experience that guests will remember for years to come."
