…there’s a wedding. Not just any wine and not just any wedding.
The wine comes from the beautiful Quinta da Pacheca in the Douro Valley. The wedding comes from the wonderful union of a Brit and a Yankee. Frome meets Fargo. Jo weds Brian.
The day had more than a touch of class but with a naturally casual feel. This small but special wedding was populated by a selection of devoted friends and family from both sides of the Atlantic. Everything ran like clockwork with the help of the consumately professional team from the Quinta da Pacheca and expert wedding coordinator Hannah (from Premium Event Planners). To cap it all the soundtrack was provided by the seductive sounds of a string quartet swirling in and out with a welcome breeze (perfectly produced by the exquisite Adlib).
The venue is perfect: the hotel is a splendid blend of old and new (with a hint of ‘quirky’!). The grounds and views across the Douro are immaculate. The event spaces are sublime (ancient barrel rooms, cobbled terraces and glass walled dining rooms).
Oh and the wine? Obviously we didn’t try any as we were working. But I’m told that it was pretty good too…
