Meet your luxury wedding planner in Portugal

You’ve got a feel for the tailor-made wedding planning service offered at La Key, but what about getting to know me? My name is Carina Olim and I am your luxury wedding planner in Portugal. But I don’t see myself as simply a wedding planner. If you asked me to define my role, I’d say memory maker, visual designer, logistics coordinator, contract negotiator, supplier liaison and – above all – trusted confidante. My task stretches so far beyond simply planning a wedding. It involves designing an experience that feels intrinsically right for you – a match made in heaven, or a perfect fit. It involves helping your family and friends, who may have flown round the world to join you, to have the time of their lives, whether for one day or an entire weekend. And it involves being your voice of calm and steadying hand at every moment in the planning process. I want you to feel comfortable and ready to enjoy every moment fully when the time arrives.

But where do the skills come from that enable me to create the event of your dreams? 

After graduating in International Hospitality Management from Les Roches International Swiss School of Hotel Management, I poured my learning into extensive experiences at five-star hotels and catering companies around the world. I developed my understanding of the hospitality and event business from the inside-out, from coordinating the hustle and bustle behind the scenes to the delivering a glamorous final experience.

After many years working internationally, the call of Portugal was simply too hard to resist. And so I returned home and, with an ounce of courage, I channelled everything I had learned into La Key Events. Now, I’m proud to deliver some of Portugal’s finest wedding experiences for couples just like you.

With a wealth of high-quality contacts, an intuitive appreciation of what it takes to create a five-star event and a dedication to the personal, I help couples from all over the world celebrate their ultimate destination weddings in Portugal. Could you be next?
