The Blandy family, owners of the 210-year-old Palheiro Estate, have recently opened their private chapel for weddings and ceremonies in the stunning Palheiro gardens.
Family member and director ‘Jonathan Fletcher-Blandy’ explains:
‘We are delighted to open the doors of this beautiful baroque chapel for weddings and ceremonies. We are sure that this will become the setting for some fantastic weddings and we are very excited to finally be able to share this unique location.’
A word of warning though…the 2nd owner of the Estate (The Conde de Carvalhal) was a huge ‘bon viveur’ and held many lavish parties at Palheiro…some of a rather scandalous nature! On one occasion women were invited wearing as their costume, nothing but jewellery and high-heeled shoes! Jonathan is quick to reiterate that all ceremonies must now be fully clothed!!
