This Palacio do Correio Mor wedding marked our first event at this beautiful venue. We´ve been acquainted with it at an event we attended but only had the chance to get to know it from the outdoors. So our excitement was great when Larissa and Rodrigo contacted us to book our services for their wedding at this venue.
The lovely couple lives and works in Paris but chose Portugal, Rodrigo´s native country, to tie the knot. Ever since our very first Zoom call and then email exchanges, there was nothing but kindness, and respect transmitted from the lovely couple. So on the wedding day, when we were going to meet them for the first time, we were not disappointed. They´re both very down-to-earth, kind and very much in love with one another! While Rodrigo got ready at his parent’s home, Larissa´s wedding preparations happened in one of the rooms of the Palace. She was surrounded by her closest family to help choose the best make-up shade and hairstyle. While photographing Larissa, we were surprised at just how calm she´s been throughout the preparations. Usually, brides show at least a little bit of nervousness, even through simple laughter or calming breathing techniques. Larissa, from start to walking down the aisle had been one of the calmest brides we´ve probably met.
The exchange of vows took place at the entrance patio of the Palace and guests witnessed some very heartfelt exchange of love, commitment and hope for the future. After the ceremony, all guests moved over to the back side of the Venue and had their cocktails and the opportunity to wish the newlyweds the best of happiness. During this time, we stole Larissa and Rodrigo for some portrait pictures around Palacio Correio Mor. The pair is so sweet with each other and if it wasn´t for the very limited time we had for the portraits, we would have continued for much longer with our newlywed models :)
The cocktail traditionally followed dinner and a fantastic wedding party till the early hours of the next morning.
Larissa and Rodrigo, thank you so very much for choosing us as your Portugal Wedding Photographers. We´ve only had a chance to spend 1 day in your lovely company but we really wish we had more time to get to know you. Wishing you all the best for the years to come!
