About Mary Me
Hi! I’m Maria
Founder and Wedding Planner
So Much to Think About. So Little Time. That’s Where I come In.
I have a Degree and a Master in Law, and I still work as a Lawyer but back in 2011, I’ve started thinking about getting my own Company in the Weddings’ Industry.
That’s when I’ve started looking at this passion, also as a career.
I’ve organized the first wedding, in 2013 and, until now, we’ve had the chance to meet more
In the first two years I’ve organized weddings on my own but now I count with a specialized team that I’ve trained, which allow us to ensure the quality and the effectiveness of our service.
Every year we receive couples from all over the globe (Portuguese and Foreigners), and we became a reference in Weddings at the Douro Valley.
Mary Me Eventos® is a Portuguese wedding planning company, specialized in Destination Weddings in Portugal for worldwide couples, since 2017, started organizing weddings outside Portugal: in Spain, France, Italy, Croatia, Turkey, Austria, Brazil
Tell us about your love story and we’ll find the perfect match for your dream wedding!
I Work With You To Bring Your Big Day Vision to Life, Stress-Free.
Planning a wedding requires having plenty of time available. In fact, a couple needs an average of about 200 hours to prepare their big day. Mary Me® helps the bride and groom save time, energy and resources, taking care of the many essential details, always with creative ideas to make your wedding a fantastic event!
Different cultures. Same heart.
Mary Me Eventos has experience with Civil, Hindu, Persian, Jewish, Catholic and symbolic weddings and ceremonies.
Less is more
