Eimear + Eoin, both Irish, choose Portugal for their Destination Wedding. When we asked them why, they immediately answered: “Why not?” And this, pretty much sums up what you need to know about these two.
They’re good spirited and relaxed, and wished their wedding would be a true reflection of themselves: relaxed, colourful, happy and fun. In almost every photograph, by Gloria Aguiam Fotógrafas, The Destination Selected Vendor, there are smiles and laughters.
Eimear + Eoin love to travel and were sure about getting married abroad. They had previously been to Portugal as they told us: “to the Algarve together and loved it”. Eimear had “been to Ericeira a number of years before meeting Eoin, and loved it, too. It’s just a fab country, and the people are lovely. So we looked it up, and Eoin found the Quinta and we fell in love with it!”
Having enjoyed their day to the fullest, along with their guests, the thing that they’ve cherished the most was “that everyone had a good time, and mingled. And made the venue feel like ‘home’ for the day. We wanted to have fun… So that it would be the best day of our lives… A party… Which it was.”
To achieve this they relied on their photographer Cátia and their wedding planner Rafael who were also “really relaxed and helpful”. Eimear + Eoin have put their efforts into every detail, as a couple, from the mood for the wedding, for which they’ve chosen bright coulors, to the theme and music. They have chosen music that meant something to them and their guests all contributed to their playlists for the day.
Small yet meaningful details made everyone feel comfortable, at ease and connected in this “garden party” wedding. In the end, Eimear + Eoin were bursting with joy.
