A Fairytale Wedding at Monserrate Palace: Eleonore & Manuel’s Story

May 10, 2023

Eleonore & Manuel’s Dreamy Wedding at Monserrate Palace, Sintra

What happens when a Belgian and a Portuguese fall in love? An international destination wedding in one of the most beautiful castles of Portugal! I had the pleasure of capturing the special day of Eleonore and Manuel, along with their adorable 2-year-old son.

Despite the April heatwave with temperatures soaring around 35 degrees, the couple tied the knot in the stunning Monserrate Palace in Sintra, surrounded by lush greenery and blooming flowers. It was worth all the sweat as they exchanged their vows in the picturesque castle.

The wedding was postponed due to the pandemic, but the couple didn’t let it get in the way of their special day. They had a super relaxed wedding, filled with friendly guests who were all having a great time. Even the youngest member of the family was part of the ceremony, making the day all the more special.

From the first look to the first dance, everything was perfect. Eleonore and Manuel’s love was truly evident in every photo captured. It was an honor to be a part of their celebration and to capture their light and romantic moments in this breathtaking location.

As a destination wedding photographer in Europe, I feel so grateful to have been a part of such a beautiful day. Congratulations to the happy couple!
