Wedding film Cacela Velha
When I have a wedding in Cacela Velha it is always a special day.
I love filming weddings in Cacela Velha, especially on hot summer days.
In the morning, Marta prepares herself for the day in Altura, at her parents’ house, just 2 km from Flavio’s house.
I filmed her make-up and some lovely photos of wearing her beautiful dress, I like it a lot when the grandchildren have a strong connection with their lovely grandparents.
Already at the groom’s house, I always mix for family and friend, to capture more real images.
I arrived a little before Flavio at the beautiful church, which is in an enviable position with a view of the sea and golden sands.
From then on, the day went incredibly well and they simply enjoyed the happiest day of their lives. The tradition of the Marta family was maintained, the couple enjoyed the Renault 4L.
Which carried two generations in the family. It was a very long and crazy day 😉
Cacela Velha is a small coastal town on the southern coast of the Algarve.
It is situated in the Ria Formosa Natural Park and grew mainly during the 17th century.
When it was part of the coastal defensive system and the fort was built.
This site demonstrates that it was long established as a fishing port, archaeological excavations have found an important Roman village, a residential quarter of Almohade (12th to 13th century).
Is visible at Poço Antigo, near the border of Cacela and a Christian cemetery from the 14th century.
In the historic centre of this town consists of the Fort, the Parish Church and a cistern of Almohade.
Today, it is worth a visit for its magnificent view over the city. The sea and the extensive sandy banks of the River Formosa. It is a very relaxing place.
