A wedding is a joyous occasion, bringing together two people saying “I love you and wish to spend my life with you.”
Planning a wedding abroad can feel a little daunting, and so as a Wedding Planner and Celebrant, I am here to assist you, to ensure you day runs just as you imagined.
Madeira is the most beautiful and magical place to host your wedding, with stunning views, amazing scenery and dramatic mountains, what better back drop to make your commitment to the one you love. Just a short flight from the UK and other european countries, it is becoming a popular choice for couples who want a destination wedding that they can celebrate with all their favourite friends and family. It is also a very popular for elopement ceremonies, where it is just the two of you.
Originally from the UK, I trained as Wedding Celebrant, and moved to the Algarve to conduct wedding ceremonies. I am now living in Madeira and have expanded my business to assist and support couples to plan their perfect day. Whether you choose to hold your wedding ceremony on the coast, at a villa, in a hotel or any other venue, I will ensure that the event is planned to perfection, so that you hold this special day in your hearts forever.
There are lots of elements to the day that I can assist you with. If you would like I can plan the whole event, locating a suitable venue and organising all the suppliers, including flowers, music and catering. This takes away all your stress of organising a wedding from abroad, so you can just arrive and enjoy. If you would like to be more involved in your planning, I offer a Co-ordination Service which means that you organise everything you require but on the day I am there to ensure your plans run smoothly. This can involve organising the table plans, decorations, flowers and assisting the other suppliers to know where they are needed, and organising the payments for suppliers. In effect, I become you for the day, allowing you to enjoy all the hard work you have done creating the perfect event.
As a Wedding Celebrant, you may like to use my services just to write and conduct your Ceremony. I can design you a ceremony that reflects all your personal hopes and dreams. I am also able to assist you with the paperwork and organise a Portuguese Registrar to conduct your ceremony for you. A wedding in Madeira is never just a one day event and so I am also available to assist in organising tours, such as dolphin trips or a visit to the famous botanical gardens.
Becky, both myself & Ian could never thank you enough planning our wedding ceremony. It was just how we imagined it. Thank you so much for all your help with everything. We could have not have done it without you xxx You were an absolute pleasure to deal with Many thanks Ian & Joanne xx
Thank you so much for being part of our special day. The ceremony you wrote for us was so personal and heartfelt we felt as though you had known us for years. You took the time to find out about us as a couple and wrote us the most beautiful service that was well received both by us and our friends and family. Many commenting that it was the most personal and unique ceremony they had ever been part of. You have a way with words which captures the hearts and minds, and have given us such a loving platform to start our new life together with. Thanks for all your help and guidance with relation to picking vows and thanks for telling our story. Our day was perfect and you were a big part of making it that way.

We can't thank Madeira Weddings enough for the time and effort they gave to us in arranging our daughters wedding. The venue was fabulous, and the wedding setting was just superb. Becky de Sancha was just so helpful and nothing was too much trouble and all done with a smile. Becky conducted the ceremony too and the wedding was an excellent and totally professional day. All the arrangements went as planned and without a single hitch (apart from the married couple) and we all had a fabulous time. I would not hesitate in recommending Madeira Weddings to anyone considering their wedding in Madeira. Geoff Stewart
Thank you for our wonderful day!!! Becky is fantastic and everything was perfect. That was exactly the day we dreamt about. Agnes and Sandor
My (now) husband Chris and I were married in Madeira on the 1st September 2017. What a perfect day! Thank you so very much Becky! There were a few nervous moments, throughout the whole build up, however Becky was so reassuring, calm, but excited with us, and sure enough, everything went perfectly. We couldn't have wanted any more. We had a few FaceTime calls, and emails, however when we met Becky a few months before the big day, I felt like I already met her previously. She seemed to know exactly what we wanted, and was so friendly and accommodating. Becky not only arranged our wedding, including sourcing a fantastic hair and makeup team, and great photographer, but she also helped us find the best wedding venue, and location. The owner also couldn't have done enough for us. Becky certainly has the right contacts! Becky was also our Celebrant, and she again did a fantastic job. All in all, we are really happy that we came across Becky, and Madeira Weddings. They were amazing, just like our day! Thank you!
