Antonia & André

Not every wedding has to be a celebration with a lot of people. Antonia and André, a couple from Germany and Brazil, decided they wanted to say “Yes” in a very intimate event. Nothing to fancy, nothing really big but very simple, tasteful and warmed with love.

In a private house in Sintra, the ceremony was held among friends and family in the middle of the woods in front of an old picturesque chapel. Their little boy stood with them at the “aisle” the entire time, there’s nothing more special than having him to witness such a special celebration.

Along with the Antonia and André we planned the day to be very relaxed: the ceremony followed by a cocktail, dinner in long tables (family style) catered by the famous Portuguese chef Kiko Martins, and a Fado concert afterwords.

Decoration was simple yet elegant and it was very much aligned with the surroundings and the type of event: greenery, red and orange flowers, lots of lights and candles, flower patterned pillows and minerals as favours for the guests (the best detail in this wedding) so much so that the amazing wedding cake had to follow the theme!

Nem todos os casamentos têm de ser celebrados com muita gente. A Antonia e o André, um casal da Alemanha e do Brasil, decidiram dizer o “Sim” num ambiente muito íntimo. Nada de extravagante, nada demasiado grande mas muito simples e com bom gosto.

Numa casa privada em Sintra, a cerimônia foi realizada entre amigos e familiares no meio da floresta em frente a uma antiga capela. No “altar” com os pais, o filho do casal esteve presente durante toda a cerimónia, não há nada mais precioso do que vê-lo a testemunhar uma celebração tão especial.

Juntamente com a Antonia e André planeámos um dia bastante relaxado: a cerimônia seguida pelo cocktail, jantar em mesas compridas (estilo familiar) servido pelo famoso chef português Kiko Martins e concerto de Fado após o jantar.

A decoração foi pensada simples mas elegante e alinhada com o ambiente e o tipo de evento: verdura, flores vermelhas e laranjas, muitas luzes e velas, flores, almofadas estampadas com flores e minerais de oferta para os convidados (o melhor detalhe deste casamento) tanto que o fantástico bolo de casamento teve que seguir o tema!

Sondra & Steve

South Africa and Canada met in Lisbon for the celebration of Sondra and Steve’s love. There’s no doubt that this stylish couple knew what they wanted right from the beginning, but to plan a destination wedding from South Africa with a few trips to Canada in the middle of the process, was definitely a challenge, a good one!

Stylish and elegant were the keywords for this wedding. Steve’s last name “Pessegueiro” that means “peach tree” in Portuguese set the theme for the wedding, starting with the stationery and the mix of flowers and fruits for the table’s decoration. A lot of green and silver elements complemented the light colours and they were the perfect fit to Pestana Palace’s stunning rooms and gardens.

In a lovely day of summer and a spectacular summer night Sondra and Steve’s wedding went just as planned with a lot of fun on the dance floor, opened by a very romantic and classic first dance, very much aligned to the couple’s personality. In the end everything made sense and was just perfect.
