A Portuguese fairytale

May 10, 2023

Congratulations to the lovely couple, Alonso and Fiona! I had the pleasure of photographing their wedding at the stunning Penha Longa Resort in Sintra, Portugal, and let me tell you, it was a day to remember!

As a wedding photographer in Portugal and Europe, I always strive to capture the essence of each couple’s love story in my photos, and Alonso and Fiona’s wedding was no exception. Their love story was a beautiful blend of Irish and Peruvian cultures, which made for a unique and memorable celebration.

The Penha Longa Resort was the perfect venue for their special day. The resort is a historic monastery that is even older than the UNESCO World Heritage Monastery of Belem in Lisbon. Its elegant architecture and lush gardens provided a picturesque backdrop for the wedding ceremony and reception.

I had the pleasure of working alongside the talented wedding planner Fernanda Martinez Events, who ensured that every detail was executed flawlessly. The church ceremony was particularly emotional as the couple chose not to see each other before the wedding. The look on Alonso’s face when he first saw Fiona walking down the aisle was priceless and brought tears to everyone’s eyes.

After the ceremony, we took advantage of the beautiful weather, with a perfect temperature of 27 degrees, and headed to the surrounding gardens for a romantic photoshoot. The couple looked stunning in their wedding attire, and the gardens provided the perfect setting for our photos.

As a wedding photographer who specializes in creating light and romantic photos, I was thrilled with the final results. Alonso and Fiona’s love was captured beautifully in every photo, from their intimate moments to their fun-filled dance floor antics.

Overall, Alonso and Fiona’s wedding was a magical day filled with love, laughter, and beautiful memories. I feel honored to have been a part of their special day, and I wish them a lifetime of happiness together.
