We were super excited yesterday when a small article on Matt + Lena Photography was published on Secret Knot, a wedding inspiration blog. The concept behind Secret Knot is dispelling the negative connotation of an elopement. I always found eloping to be very romantic and was shocked that some people still regarded it as a faux pas! In fact so many people I know now days dream of just that, a romantic getaway . Big weddings are amazing, big party and big fun, but little weddings can be so very sweet.
I don’t believe eloping is as “in the moment” as it sounds now days. You can plan the perfect elopement, just as you would a big wedding, except instead of multiplying everything by 100’s you can focus on all the details that would make your wedding exactly how you dreamed. Same is true for small intimate weddings with only a few guests, or destination weddings.
Matt and I are planing a small blessing ceremony for September, just about 15 people. It’s going to be perfect! A ceremony on 4 small colourful fishing boats, all together out in the Algarve coves off the shore of Carvoeiro, fallowed by a dinner and drinks on a roof top terrace of a restaurant with a breathtaking view. And I get carte blanche on decorating the whole terrace!
So in case you missed the article yesterday, please go ahead and have a read and get to know us a little better! You can see the whole article here: http://www.secretknot.com/photographer-of-the-week-matt-lena-photography/
