Svenja and Daniel live in Germany , Daniel is Portuguese and Svenja german but they decided to choose the Algarve as their wedding destination.
The service was held in the medieval town of Silves in the Cathedral on top of the hill by the castle walls . Really lovely interesting old town to visit if you can!
The ceremony was in german and also portuguese so I understood very little but it was full of emotion and lots of laughs! After the ceremony while all the guests went on a tour around the town we slipped off and took lots of beautiful photos in the cobbled streets and archways, such a fantastic place to explore, very slippy cobbles so do beware!!
The party reception was held at Quinta Pomona 5 minutes drive from the centre. Very portuguese venue but really very nice surrounded by orange trees and vine groves with a fabulous driveway paved with huge palm trees. The very talented Nicole Silver entertained all the guest during the cocktail hour with her fabulous voice. With both sides of the family being very musical dinner was a show in itself. There were poems, songs, dancing and so much for the happy couple!
Two days later we met on the beach to do a sunset shoot. It's a very different time when you are not rushing against the clock and have guests waiting, anything is possible with photography here if you leave the right amount of time!
