Hello and nice to welcome you to Portugal


People will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.

Maya Angelou


Founder - Marleen 


Seven years ago, I followed my heart and it led me to Portugal. With a degree in Business Economy and broad experience in fashion and events, I founded Hello Portugal Events with the soul mission to spread the love and happiness which I relate to Portugal.

The best things in life are the people you love, the places you have seen and the memories you have made along the way.




This pretty much sums up what a wedding or celebration of love is about in my opinion.

Create precious memories in Portugal (where else?), surrounded by your nearest and dearest.

It may sound odd, but the conventional wedding industry doesn´t really resonate with me, because of the fairytale bubble it has created over the years.  I love to see couples staying true to their own values, pushing boundaries of tradition and dare to step away from ´what´s expected.

Realness, natural beauty and a natural flow are what I aim to bring to every truly personalized celebration or wedding in Portugal.

Our mission
is true happiness

Your happiness is our number one priority!

We simply care more about the abundant celebration of love, rather than fussing over the tiny details of styling. We care more about the amount of joy, laughter, happy tears, relaxed party vibes and room for lots of spontaneity, we care more about you and your loved ones experiencing the authentic Portugal lifestyle with all its beauty to share, as we know that that will be exactly what you will remember one day. You will remember what really matters, it’s not so much ´the what´, but it’s in ´the how´. That's what we call ´creating precious memories. Those memories will not be made of all that glitter. They will be made of emotions. 

 Don't get us wrong, we love and set a beautiful ambience. That is why we love Portugal and all the wedding venues in Portugal with whom we have proudly partnered with. We mostly love to see everyone having the best time of his/her life.
And that, dears, simply doesn't depend on the scented paper of your stationary or perfect Pinterest-worthy centrepieces. Yes, as Wedding Planners in Portugal we are perfectly capable of organising all that and we take away all your doubts and make it a stress-free ride. But our definition of true beauty we find in perfect imperfection.
