Michael and Michelle chose their destination wedding to be in the Algarve Portugal. The wedding preparations all took place in Tivoli Marina Hotel in Vilamoura overlooking the marina and beach. The ceremony was held at the Church in the picturesque town of Estoi situated next to the Palace of Estoi not far from Faro. The church was adorned with white carpet, fringed with candle lit lanterns and flowers on the pews, very striking.
After the ceremony guests gathered at the foot of the steps outside the Church for a champagne reception before heading back to the Tivoli Marina Hotel for their main drinks reception. It was an stifling hot September day so guests were happy in the shade sipping champagne and enjoying the pretty surroundings of Estoi. Where there's a Church here in the Algarve there is usually a bar close by so this is a great way to cool down your guests in-between venues!
The evening meal and party was held in Pure a fixed marquee type structure with a lake in the centre situated in the grounds of the Tivoli. This is the perfect party venue, under cover and yet with huge amounts of space, lakes, bridges, water features, sofa areas, bar and terraces. It's perfectly situated for a quick dash to the beach for a beach sunset shoot!
The whole day was perfectly co-ordinated by Algarve Weddings by Rebecca and her team. Contact them for more info..
