At 3pm the newly-wedded couples will parade from the Town Hall towards the Eduardo VII Park where the wedding breakfast takes place in the garden’s greenhouse. Established in the 1950s the ‘Santo António weddings’ are now organised by Lisbon council and offer the city’s most economically-disadvantaged young couples the opportunity of fulfilling their dreams of tying the knot in a mass ceremony.
