Now this was a Wedding to remember. The couple and all their guests travelled from Kazakhstan to celebrate their wedding in Ferragudo, Algarve. Having never been to Portugal before, the bride started her planning by booking a stunning villa, which was nestled on the cliff top, offering amazing views, privacy and access to a small exclusive beach.
She then worked at contacting photographers, florists etc and soon recognised that many of the wedding suppliers in Portugal knew each other and offered her support and advice along the way.
Her big day started with Korine arriving to do her hair and make-up. Korine is an amazing hairdresser. Watching her work is like watching an artist create a masterpiece.
Suzannah and James from Suzannah’s Flowers arrived with the bouquets, the pigoda for the ceremony and armed full of candles and other decorations to transform the outside space of the villa into a dream wedding venue. James did a great job of building the pigoda which offered everyone the best views over the Ferragudo coastline.
Rather than having a band or disco, the couple invited one of their guests, who was a DJ, to manage all the music for the day. They hired all the equipment they needed from Charlie at Kaleidosonix. In fact they hired it for the week so we are guessing the party went on long after the wedding day!
Every wedding should have the best man leading on the Russian dancing! The cocktail reception worked perfectly around the pool area, before the whole wedding party went down to the private beach for a paddle. The wedding meal was served at sunset out on the terrace and the party went on until the early hours.
A great couple, a great wedding…. and memories they will always cherish.
