With The summer truly under way we found ourselves at the wedding of Claire and Kevin, this bonny couple from Scotland decided to have their Algarve Wedding at the Hilton Resort and Spa in Vilamoura
We never got chance to meet these guys before the wedding but Claire and I had had many emails over the past year so it was great to at last meet her.
The couple booked us for the Luxury All day photography Package and a Wedding Highlights Film, and with just 25 guests the couple had James on video and myself (Kellie) on photography covering their wedding.
We arrived at the Hilton Hotel where Claire was getting ready with the bridesmaids, her three sisters and her best friend, Linda, Jennifer, Karen and Siobhan and everyone was busy getting ready with the help from Soraia from Love your Style who was doing the ladies make up and Anabela from Bebela who was doing their hair, the girls looked stunning and were celebrating on the balcony with champagne.
We left them to meet Kevin and his boys who were getting into their kilts in a room downstairs and then back to the girls to capture Claire in her stunning wedding dress waiting for the arrival of her Dad, which by the way was very emotional.
The ceremony was in the gardens of the Hilton Hotel and everything was organised beautiful by the Hotels wedding organiser Nicole, we have worked with her a few times and its always a pleasure. It was a lovely ceremony with just their close family and friends watching on. The cocktail hour was held in the garden near to the ceremony location.
The evening reception was at Almar Beach Restaurant on Falesia Beach, BUT Claire and Kevin travelled in style by Tuk Tuk and was walked along the boardwalk to the sound of bagpipes!
The beach was busy when we arrived but soon became quiet and we managed to grab the couple for some one one time for the video and photos.
The reception was so enjoyable, the speeches made us laugh and all their friends and family made us feel so welcome, the couple cut their cake and had their first dance in front of the Huge LOVE letters and we left everyone dancing.
As promised Claire and Kevin here is your Highlights video for your UK party, we hope you enjoy and have a great party at the weekend.
