who we are
Experts in amazing & memorable.
It all started with Tours For You, a D.M.C. (Destination Management Company) in Portugal, focused in developing charming, luxury and experiential travel services. We’ve started in 2003, and since then we’ve became the only Portuguese Virtuoso On-Site operator to be nominated in 2014 as one of the best 5 On-Site Providers in the World.
All this means one thing only: that we truly understand how to create the most special, unique, unforgettable time of your life. It comes from experience, from dedication, from an almost childish sense of curiosity and wonder. And this is why we can offer you a peerless wedding!
And now, let’s talk a little bit about our own story…
Nuno Tavares, Owner & C.E.O. and Ana Moreira, Wedding Planner
TFY Weddings was born out of the creative mind of Nuno Tavares that after designing the entire concept for this project, patiently researched for the perfect person to personalize a wedding planning department. One thing he was aware of: although fully embedded of an entrepreneur spirit and love to create new projects with a great attention to reliability, design, quality, fashion… and mainly with an appeal to enchant the potential customer delivering what is promised, he knew he was not the right person to plan a wedding. He needed to find a soulmate who would join him and with whom, together, could both be the “Ying and Yang”, the “Black and White”, the “Summer and Winter”, the “coffee and milk”…Get the picture? Think so…Very similar to a marriage, as a matter of fact :). So, who could be that person? Someone that loves to deal with all the details that wedding planning intrinsically needs, that would create a great empathy and complicity with the bride and groom, that fully understands their needs and is always there to support them. Someone with a beautiful mind, with a very aesthetic eye, and who would understand the sense of responsibility when assisting with the planning of the most important day of a couple. Then, making a long story short, came an important day on this story. The day when Ana was in front of Nuno for the first time. That was the “once upon a time” day. The day Nuno immediately understood that the person he was looking for…was just in front of him. And let’s now talk about Ana for a moment: She is graduated in Design and has a master degree in Hotel Management and she totally believes that these two areas combined, give her the knowledge and the experience to plan and manage your dream day of a lifetime. Furthermore Ana already has a vast experience in luxury wedding planning. She easily falls in love with the colors, the shapes, and all the details, and most importantly by all the energy that makes that day happen. Her intuition never disappoints, and she will live all the weddings as if they were her own. The result from this “rendez-vous” between them: TFY Weddings could finally leave Nuno’s desk and they could start together, with Ana as the head of our wonderful team of wedding planners, where she will make sure that all of them are going to make all your wishes come true. This is it. The is the story of TFY Weddings.
Imagination is the beginning of creation. You imagine what you desire, you will what you imagine and at last you create what you will
George Bernard Shaw once said it, and we think it perfectly summarizes what we can do for you: we can create what you imagine.
