S & P – Fly away with me
Yes, the weekend is here and we are non stop, planning weddings, organizing visits and scheduling meetings with our dear couples.
Our Wedding Season just started now and we couldn’t be happier although this means long days of work, without days off and almost living for work instead of the opposite.
S & P got in touch with us at the beginning of 2015, they live in Paris and asked us help to make their wedding dream become real. Although they have a house in our beautiful Algarve they only come on holidays so all the planning was done through several skype calls, loads of emails and some phone conversations.
They are both Portuguese but they live for such a long time in France that the French accent overlaps the first language. Sometimes communication was not easy between ourselves but from our side and from them as well I am sure we did our best.
The ceremony took place at Guarita Terrace, a breath taking venue located in Praia Verde, East Algarve, overlooking the sea and in French, of course. At the end, our beautiful bride surprised her husband releasing 2 white doves as symbol of their love, flying now together. After this, the guests enjoyed a delicious Welcome Cocktail including a variety of canapes and Open Bar.
The dinner was indoors as the night was a bit chilly in the beautiful Panoramic Restaurant. Work in this amazing place with the amazing team they are is more than perfect. This is a venue where we really feel at home, welcomed and as family members. It is really like being on the same boat with everybody rowing in the same direction. This is the first step for a perfect result.
Our bride’s choice in what dress concerns comes from one of our favourite brands – Pronovias. The hair was carefully done by Manuela Gamboa and the makeup was in the hands of Marisa Francisco that left our bride beautiful. As for the flowers, well… speechless. The flowers fairy is Gina, from Oura Flores who is a perfectionist and very detailed person. She was the one in charge of creating all the ceremony atmosphere, dinner area decoration and of course the bridal bouquet and lovely buttonholes. This lady has a gift, we love her and her work and we definitely trust in her with our eyes closed.
Now, let the party starts!!! The couple danced all night long thanks to DJ Dhanny, whose service and performance comes included in the Wedding packs that this venue offers to the couples. The party couldn’t be funnier as it lasted until 4 am.
The favours for guests were very unique and original, a true tribute to our beautiful region and to Castro Marim in particular: the couple decided to offer salt flower inside mini boxes done in cork with their names and wedding date printed.
To immortalize all these moments and this unforgettable day we recommended without any doubt our professional photographers João & Mário Ataíde and their team. As for the video the day was filmed by the talented and recently award winning as best videographer 2015 at Weddings Online, Orlando Horta.
We really appreciate all our suppliers work on this day, who helped us to make this day come true, but the biggest THANK is of course for S & J that trusted in ourselves, in our work and in our experience and gave us the opportunity to be part of the most important day of their lives.
This is just the beginning so now you will have to wait for the next wedding!
Have a lovely weekend!
