Scottish couple, Kirsten and Anthony, decided to try something a little bit different when they organised a destination wedding in Portugal. They thought it would be a fun idea to design a mystery wedding tour for their guests, and decided that all family members and friends would be kept in the dark about the nature of their wedding day.

The only information given to them was a meeting point and a pick up time on the morning of the big day. Guests were then whisked away to watch them both exchange their vows within the majestic ruins of an old convent, followed by an outdoor dinner party in the garden of their favourite restaurant, both situated in the heart of Lisbon. As the evening came to a close, Kirsten and Anthony ensured the party didn’t end there and they ushered all their guests to their final destination in the town of Cascais for further drinks and dancing.

Kirsten and Anthony created a very unique, informal and extremely beautiful wedding day. The atmosphere was incredible and the sense of mystery and the unknown heightened the excitement and buzz that hung in the air.

Helene and Tiago came all the way from America to marry in Sintra, the beautiful and historic hometown of Tiago.  They designed an entire weekend of celebrations for their guests to enjoy. A pre-wedding gathering was organised in the grounds of a beautiful guesthouse which put everyone in the mood for their big day.  Helene had beautifully decorated the gardens with cushions, blankets, and lanterns, creating a very relaxed, cosy and intimate space.  As the night approached, candles flickered by the pond and a wood fire burned, taking the chill out of the evening air.   While guests chatted and mingled with one another, Helene and Tiago sneaked away to enjoy some quality moments alone together, giving us some time to capture their glow of happiness and nervous excitement.

Marta and Fabio, from the very beginning, were determined on making their day a little different. What they had in mind was an outdoor party in the heart of Portugal’s countryside, where friends and close family members could gather without any formalities or protocols. Their choice of venue was a beautiful and rustic ‘Monte’ in Northern Alentejo. Curiously, it was the first time this old farm house opened it’s doors for such a celebration and this was precisely the attraction for Marta and Fabio, as it gave them the full freedom they wanted when it came to styling their perfect day.

A late ceremony took place to avoid the harsh sun, which is renowned in the Alentejo region for slowing everything down. They exchanged their vows, comfortably sheltered under the foliage of a majestic fig tree, with a breathtaking view of a never ending olive grove that stretched as far as the eye could see.

As the day unfolded and as the sun set, the entire party fell into full swing. Without a doubt, the energy that vibrated throughout the evening was a reflection of Marta and Fabio’s lively personalities. It was a carnivalesque celebration under the stars.  A truly memorable and magical evening.

Connie & Álvaro’s elegant wedding took place in the historic ‘Quinta do Hespanhol’ – a beautiful 15th Century estate tucked away in the heart of the Portuguese countryside.   Connie ensured that her day was magical, by scattering colourful flowers in an array of rustic glass jars and by placing tea lights throughout the entire wedding venue. She created a truly beautiful, unique and romantic space for all her guests to celebrate.

Introducing Taylor, the energetic, adventurous and hilariously funny two and half year old daughter of two very special friends of ours, Christina & Henrik. This sweet family travelled all the way from Galicia, northern Spain to spend some quality time in Cascais with their little girl.

We decided to capture them as a family at Guincho beach. Taylor’s excitement could not be contained as she approached and discovered every single sand dune; needless to say, we never made it to the sea. Her sense of wonder and energy for these new sandy mountains was contagious as she dived, jumped and rolled her way around them all. She amused herself (and us both) by suddenly collapsing on the sand in a fit of giggles every few minutes, as she relished the idea that she could not hurt herself. It was only the setting of the sun that finally encouraged her to leave behind the sand and those enormous dunes.

Thank you both for giving us the chance to spend quality time with your gorgeous girl.
