Sophie + Duncan, Destination Algarve Wedding

Sophie and Duncan were married this Spring in a lakeside ceremony at Monte Rei Resort.  The pair have been coming to the Algarve for years and tying the knot in one of their favourite places was a dream come true.  Their family and friends gathered in June for a wedding weekend starting with a bbq for the 2 families to meet, which ended up with everyone bursting into song while the wine poured.

It was our first wedding of the 2021 season and we were so excited to capture this beautiful story. There were so many fun and happy moments and a wonderfully emotional atmosphere of these two families meeting and celebrating.

Enjoying the warm Algarve weather, the whole weekend was held outdoors.  The ceremony and the alfresco reception overlooked the lake.  We had the most amazing pink sunset when we stepped away to explore the venue with the newlyweds and take some portraits. There was continues music and dancing through out the day, from the getting ready to the ceremony’s acoustic set and reception’s jazzy saxophonist, all the way to the crazy and energetic dance floor with the Nicola Silva Band.
