WHAT I DO AND WHAT I LOVE

I'm a Portuguese Destination Wedding Planner that lives in (the beautiful and magical) Sintra. I love my country and I'm sure everyone falls in love with Portugal at first sight. I like to show to my brides and grooms vineyards, castles, typical Portuguese places and regions, and offer them the cuisine, music, good weather and hospitality that completes a Portuguese experience.

I´m a proud mum and wife. I'm blessed. My family gives me a heart full of love that inspires me to work every day on the others happiness.

I like to create since my childhood. Moments, emotions, memories. I can´t imagine myself doing anything else that doesn’t have an artistic touch. Arts has always been part of my life: dance, theater, writing, events…

When I was little, I wanted to be a ballerina. I loved the beauty in all those movements and, most of all, loved all what dancing made me feel: I felt fulfilled, happy and also felt that I could make others happy.

I grew up and became a journalist that wrote stories that wanted to be memorable and touch people’s heart. After that, I became a marketeer that wanted to position the company in an unique place in the market. Then, when I grew up a little more, I found my true and biggest passion: plan events where I could do everything that was important to me: make other people happy and write with them a beautiful, unique and memorable story.

So, the path to make other people happy that I have been for 10 years now, is what makes me the happy woman that I am. And that´s how OUI LOVE YOU started.

We embrace each couple’s wedding like a blank page waiting to be written. We build together a story where the bride and groom guide us, but we like them to leave in our hands to create their wedding with authenticity, creativity and with the precision and organization that our experience allows us too.

So, this is OUI LOVE YOU, a dream maker, accomplice of an unique, dazzling and memorable wedding. Every wedding we plan has the sparkle of a perfect love. We capture the best of their love story to give them a dream day!

MY FAVORITE COLOR, TEXTURE AND AROMA

I love colours, a lot of them, but i´m absolutely in love with WHITE. My favorite aroma is the joy of a sunny day by the sea and the texture... well, nothing better than a hug of a happy family.
