It was a beautiful, emotion-filled Algarve wedding! Back in September, this lovely couple asked us to become their Wedding Photographer Castro Marim, Algarve. B + L were planning their Algarve wedding in South Korea and everything turned out just perfect. Two families and cultures came together and it was a fabulous wedding surrounded by loved ones. A few days before, we had a pre-wedding photo shoot with the wedding couple. This gave us the opportunity to become acquainted with them since people often use those pictures to add an extra personal touch to their wedding. What an incredible day for wedding photos in Algarve. Have a look at some of our favourite shots of this day!
The wedding couple had chosen the Villa of Castro Marim Golf and Country Club to be their wedding location in Algarve. It is on the Spanish border with a view of the Guadiana River and the Atlantic Ocean is at the distance of a short drive. The whole venue as beautifully decorated. The wedding table was simple and elegant, decorated with pink roses and delicate baby’s breaths.
The Wedding Ceremony
The wedding ceremony took place at the edge of the pool on the hill slope, overlooking the golf courses and the bridge to Spain. Surrounded by parents and closest friends. After being declared husband and wife, wedding guests blessed them with rose petals. It is an ancient tradition is throwing rose petals at the couple right after they are announced husband and wife. Petals symbolize a token of good fortune, joy, and love. I absolutely love these pictures – what emotions! After the lovely ceremony, the couple got to relax and celebrate their love with their parents and friends.
The opening of the wedding presents is always exciting, and they have even a bigger value when they are handmade by your guests. Guests surprised the wedding couple with very personal albums and drawings. The couple got a great drawing of themselves and a photo album to memorize some fun moments with their friends. But of course, the biggest gift for a wedding couple is that the guests have come to celebrate this miraculous day with them.
B + L were marvellous together and their wedding day reflected how much they love each other. We did not have a typically posed wedding photoshoot, but rather we photographed them while they were dancing to capture some real emotions. Most of all, both were always full of energy and laughter all day long. Of course, there was the father-daughter dance, with which the bride showed how much she loved her father and how grateful she was for everything.
The first Dance
After the sunset, it was time for the wedding cake, therefore the perfect ending to an amazing day! We got many lovely wedding photos, that will even more help them to remember this incredible celebration. This special day represented a perfect Algarve wedding and we would like to thank you, especially for trusting us to be your Wedding Photographer Castro Marim, Algarve, to capture your special day. We wish them happiness for a long time and may your love last forever!
