Wedding Pestana Palace

Wedding at the Pestana Palace Hotel

Monica & Amir’s Destination Wedding in Portugal, at the pestana Palace Hotel.

It was a very meaningful wedding with an orthodox ceremony at São Roque Church.

Monica is from San Diego and Amir is from Egypt. They met in London.

In 2018 they were in Lisbon, a while later they decide to return to get married in the city of the seven hills.

The Pestana Palace Hotel

The initial design of the palace was done by Italian architect Nicola Bigaglia, who led the work on the project until 1908.

 The initial work was followed and finalized by the Portuguese architect José Ferreira da Costa who took over the project until its completion in 1910.

 Numerous details throughout the palace are by the famous architect Miguel Ventura Terra.

After the palace was built, an extensive interior design campaign took place between 1910 and 1915.

Under the auspices of the designers Constantino Fernandes, Carlos Reis and Eugénio Cotrim.

This luxurious and elegant hotel has a wonderful view over the Tejo River. 

A luxuriant private park surrounds the grounds with an abundance of subtropical plants and trees, presenting a magnificent panoramic view.

The Hotel has also won several international competitions for its unsurpassed and exquisite cuisine.

Monica’s preparations were in one of the suites, in the company of her godmothers and her mother.

We prepared the meeting with her father in one of the wonderful rooms.

A wedding replete with elegance, happiness and a lot of love. 

In conclusion, it is always wonderful to see the bride and groom dancing in the starlight

Then the party continues inside, with lots of energy and good humour.

 PALÁCIO DE SETAIS

The Palácio de Setais, The bride and groom, aren´t they Queen and King for one day?

The Palácio de Setais is their realm for a Luxury Wedding on the Portuguese Riviera not far from Lisbon.
Royal suites are perfect for the wedding´s participants to prepare and reflect on this most auspicious day of their lives.
Families and friends will enjoy the soft environment in fresh tones contrasting emblematic yellow and burgundy hues.
The gardens are an attraction in the Sintra region, they provide an outdoor space where a marquee could shelter a buffet or a dance area.

The palace is under management of the famed Tivoli Group of Luxury Hotels.

The venue is also a historical site, the residence of a once most powerful ruler of Portugal, the Marquis de Pombal

This grand Hotel is located in a mountainous landscape, from its high location, one has a splendid view of the Palácio da Pena across the valley, atop another Sierra.

The Setais Palace is a remarkable building ready to welcome the celebration of a couple in love who chose this princely venue to celebrate and convene all their loved ones.

The site will seduce as much by its grandeur as by the romantic and intimate flavor combined with period decoration.

A historical and princely venue, the Palácio de Setais offers a very distinct atmosphere of quiet opulence; a suitable setting for a Luxury Wedding in Portugal.

Almost in the centre of the historical town of Sintra, where you can visit wonderful places.

It was a pleasure working with this team!!!

Wedding Penha Longa

Ana Carolina and Jorge’s wedding in Penha Longa,  was such a special and perfectly organized day.

If you are starting to search for your perfect wedding location in Portugal, especially in the Lisbon area, I’m sure you came across the Penha Longa Resort.

Located in the natural park of Sintra, this huge luxury resort belongs to the Ritz Carlton group of hotels.

There is a main building, with a front-desk, hotel rooms, swimming pool and many other facilities.
There are many golf fields, a building with a restaurant (actually there are several restaurants in the resort area).

perfect wedding location in Sintra

The Monastery includes:
A catholic church. The church is very big and beautiful, and could host around 200 people or even more. The priest normally comes from Sintra’s church.

Anyway, event managers at the hotel will provide all the necessary information about this;
If you would rather opt for a symbolic or civil ceremony, you might be interested in the gardens that surround the Monastery building.

They are also perfect for a cocktail hour.

There are two gardens in one area only (lower and upper gardens).

There are many halls at the Monastery with the classic blue Portuguese tiles, and they look beautiful!

Also a very nice small area with an open top: very useful for the cake cutting or party, but during the night could be quite cold.

Also, in the halls, Penha Longa often throws a dessert and cheese buffet during the night.

Nobre Room – one of the most beautiful rooms at the monastery, in my opinion.

For dinner it can fit around 60 people. If you have more guests, this room is great for the party.

Wedding film Quinta do Lago

Joana and Richie’s wedding in Quinta do Lago, they met four years ago, in the same place where they chose to have their wedding.
Now we are going through a difficult phase and we have to have many rules with Covid-19.
Although it is a difficult period, and it is not possible to have tighter hugs and lengths between families.

They managed to have an excellent day, with many laughs and full of happiness for being fulfilling their dream.
We had a wonderful session at the Wyndham Grand Algarve , and also at the Vale do Lobo golf course.
We finished the day with dinner on the beach.
It is wonderful to see a sunset on the beach with family and friends.

Engagement session

 This time we chose to do the session very early in the morning, so that we have the streets of Faro with very little movement.
It was a great idea, and we enjoyed the first rays of sunshine, which are wonderful and soft.

Now let’s wait for the Catarina and Nelson wedding day, which will be close to Lisbon.

Editorial – Tivoli Carvoeiro

It is always wonderful to record images at the Tivoli Carvoeiro, the proximity to the sea and the cliffs, make this place fascinating.
I love its roof, where you can enjoy a wonderful sunset.
This editorial took place, in a grassy location that makes the location of the wedding ceremonies.
It has an imposing view over the sea, which gives us a wonderful feeling.

 Ediorial Tentugal

Classic elegance and modern romance go hand in hand for this Portugal ruins elopement designed by luxury destination wedding planner, Sublime Luxury Weddings. They say to never judge too quickly, but for us, the jury was in for this sun-kissed ceremony overlooking rows and rows of grape vines within a millisecond. The verdict? Perfection. Graceful decor and organically styled florals elevate this historic Portuguese venue from a stone skeleton to a fairytale setting that tells the stories of past and present. Liz Garden Events can be thanked for the magnificently composed blooms on display throughout. Tender embraces and radiant portraits were not missed by the photographer, Side by Side. In fact, these in-between moments are so beautifully documented, you can’t help but feel like you’re stepping into the frame yourself.
