A Destination wedding in Portugal - Camelia & Tim

Well, what can I say about this wedding! It was all kinds of amazing and I feel so lucky I got the opportunity to capture it. 

When Camelia first contacted me about her wedding in Portugal I was extremely excited about the chance to document a destination wedding. It was a personal goal of mine, since becoming a wedding photographer, to travel as part of my job, and the fact that I got to see that dream come true was incredible. Now I am itching to photograph more weddings abroad, and see as much of this beautiful planet as possible, through my eyes and my lens...

Camelia and Tim got married at the stunning Quinta, Vintage Wedding  venue near Sintra, Portugal. It was the perfect location, up in the mountains,  but with gorgeous views of the atlantic ocean. The venue itself is a charming historical estate surrounded by the most beautiful gardens and for weddings,  is decorated in a vintage, eclectic style with unique pieces of furniture and details. 

I turned up the day before the wedding and immediately hit it off with the Tim and Camelia  - they were so warm and friendly and not only did I get on great with them, but all their friends and family. The day after the wedding was lovely and chilled and I was warmly welcomed into their post wedding celebration party to enjoy a BBQ and a few drinks before heading back to Lisbon airport for my flight home. 

The couple added their own twist on an already unique venue, decorating the outside of the building with brightly coloured balloons, which certainly gave an element of juxtaposition to the wedding setting. 

The whole day was amazing, sunny, family oriented,  and the wine flowed like water! It is definitely a wedding I will remember and I can't thank Tim and Camelia enough for getting to photograph their beautiful day.

Here a selection of my favourite images. I tried to cut them back more but it was impossible...
