A Portuguese love affair

What started as a relaxing vacation in Portugal for Dara + Andrey, ended with a breathtaking sunset wedding proposal on Cabo da Roca – Europe’s most western point – and, after the much anticipated “yes”, the certainty that the wedding would have Portugal as its destination! And that’s exactly what happened in the Spring of 2016, in Algarve, where the bride and groom’s Portuguese love affair continued, this time with family and friends, to share the country’s greatest assets: sun, sea, mother nature, flavors, hospitality and fun… everyone else took care of the day’s rollercoaster of emotions.

Anna + Alexey, Love is All You Need

Today we bring you the most adorable beach wedding planned by StudioVictorias. Anna + Alexey’s love story is inspiring. They met in a small Russian town, fell in love at first glance and have never been apart since then. Shortly after, they’ve welcomed their first child and decided to get married. They dreamt of a low budget, super-mini, non-traditional destination wedding at the beach, and chose one of the superb ones in Portugal: Praia da Fonte da Telha, near Lisbon.

 

Inspite being a very simple and uncomplicated ceremony it was heartfelt, meaningful and full of love: 1+1= <3

Marina + Norman, Elegant Duo

Marina + Norman are an international couple: she’s Russian and lives in Moscow; he’s Chinese, born in Portugal, who currently living in the US. Norman has always dreamt of getting married and living in Portugal. He has now fulfilled one of his dreams: he got married in Portugal last April.

 

 

As the ocean represents a symbol of a happy family, this couple chose a small cape in the Algarve to celebrate their love. They’ve hired Studio Victorias to plan it and in the end they had a perfect day. Theirs was a truly luxurious wedding for two. In spite of being just the two of them celebrating their love they didn’t compromise elegance and refinement. The bride’s look was remarkable and flawless, so was the groom’s. The Algarve rocky cliff scenery were superbly accented by the gorgeous sunlight, the clear blue sky above and the serene blue ocean below. Has we often say, Portugal is a dream wedding destination and this wedding surely proves us right!

Ksiusha + Reto, Summer Lovin’

Ksyusha + Reto’s summer destination wedding in Cascais was delightful. On a marvelous august day, with the sun shining brightly and the temperature hot and inviting, overlooking the ocean, they’ve celebrated their love among 80 guest from across the globe. One of Portugal‘s main advantages for Destination Weddings is that it’s quite central for several countries in the world, as it was the case: guests arrived from Nigeria, Brazil, Switzerland, Russia and Japan.

 

At the Senhora da Guia Cascais Boutique Hotel, set in the rocky cliffs of Cascais, the couple found the perfect place to hold their wedding overlooking the ocean. A meaningful and symbolic orthodox ceremony was performed outdoors. Guests and the newlyweds enjoyed the sunset and afterwards a comfortable indoor dinner and a long party that lasted till dawn.  This elegant and sophisticated destination wedding was planned in Portugal by Dream Weddings Europe. We hope you enjoy it and start dreaming of your own destination wedding in Portugal.
