When I thought my clients for 2016 could not get any better Stef & Adam proved me very wrong. They were looking for somebody to capture their intimate Wedding celebration which was to take place amongst the serene setting of Carvoeiro in Portugal and of course I was more than up for the challenge! Naturally with this being my first booking abroad I felt sick with a cocktail of excitement and nerves but as soon as I arrived I was welcomed with open arms by the guests and bride and groom and by the end of it felt part of the family. Tivoli Hotel was the host of the event, and what an ideal choice for this breathtaking event. The entire day from start to finish was dreamy…no mayhem or noise besides the waves against the cliffs and the light warm breeze; the ceremony was touching and emotional and it was clear how close to the bride and groom all of the guests were through how in touch with the special relationship that Stef & Adam had they seemed.
Unforgettable was the scene were I shot Stef & Adam’s portraits; where will I find turquoise seas matched with the orange tones painted in from the wholesome sunset again? The bride looked ethereal standing before the warm sky in her bohemian style dress which flowed so beautifully in the sea breeze. The speeches took place overlooking the venue’s balcony across the horizon, and piano music by the talented Leandro Russo was the fitting soundtrack to the entirety of the day bringing all the themes and emotion together. After all the dancing, singing, eating and celebrating after the sun had finally set guests were gathered and led back up the cliff top where the ceremony took place earlier that afternoon; they were greeted with LED balloons which they were given and then asked to set free together signifying the end to the memorable day along with Wedding cake of course!
This Wedding really was one to remember and I can’t thank Dr & Mrs Robinson enough for asking me to be a part of it all. It has well and truly inspired me!
