Hello
LOVE

Woman smiles at her parents

The Sweet Story

Ten years ago, I followed my heart and it led me to Portugal. With an academic 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.

The Real Story

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, where promises of  "perfect days as unique as you are" consequently lead to unaffordable expectations. Stress is almost inevitable and even regarded as ´normal´ when planning your wedding. Going over budget and keeping track of the wedding expenses are the number one cause of wedding stress. 

I genuinely believe that with the right tools and guidance, every couple should be able to organize the wedding of their dreams and the wedding they can afford whilst enjoying the journey to their Big Day without (financial) stress.

Therefore I have made it my mission to help couples from all over the world with healthy wedding budget management.  After all, a wedding symbolizes the start of a new era as a couple. That start should be worry-free, stress-free, and free from debt. It should be joyfully celebrated.

With love
