Juliana & João

Juliana and João were high school sweethearts and came all the way from São Paulo, Brazil to get married in the north of Portugal.

Pousada de Amares, an old and lost monastery recovered by the famous Portuguese architect Souto Moura, was their choice to celebrate their big day. Juliana loves architecture and interior design, she even has her very own successful blog about design, decoration and architecture. It was only natural that Pousada de Amares was the chosen venue for their wedding.

The styling concept for this wedding was all about nature, with the use of a generous mix of flowers and plants. Warm colours, rich metal tones (copper and gold) and a stunning sweets table (“mesa de doces” in Portuguese) that kept this rather Brazilian tradition alive in this northern Portuguese corner.

Styling wise, luscious flowers made the ceremony arch the perfect framing for the bride and groom at the altar. The stunning landscape and surroundings did the rest.

The dinner was served in a room that used to be a chapel. It is a banquet room now, with modern large lamps where the new and the old live together.

Almost like if the time had stop and nature took the monastery back to its kingdom.
