Back in January 2017 we received an email from Erin & Dee asking about our Photography & Video packages, they had a date for September 2018 but nothing else, however they loved our work and wanted to book us so they did.
They came to the Algarve in March 2017 where we met them in their apartment and we all sat down together to discuss their wedding plans to which they had none! They had an idea of what they wanted but nothing was booked, this is where James and I love to help so we went through everything with them and gave them a list of highly recommended suppliers that we have worked with here in the Algarve.
So after nearly 2 years of planning today was the day and with an amazing team of Algarve Suppliers we knew it was going to be a great day.
The couple had booked us for the Elegance Package so had the All day Photography, Extended highlights Wedding Film, Out takes, Drone and Elegance Album, so the team was Kellie on Photography, Myself and Brandon on video and Sergio was our drone pilot.
We arrived with Erin who had already had her hair done by Joanne from Jar Studios and was having her makeup done by Sharon from Makeup Algarve By Sharon Phillips and Lauren Kemp, always great to work with these girls and Erin looked stunning, she was getting ready with her 3 bridesmaids, Elaine, Lynne and Bridgeen and her Mum Bridget and flower girl, all were very excited but calm and had to have a selfie on the balcony.
Once everyone was ready it was time to leave to head over to the stunning venue of Senhora da Rocha also known as Lady of the Rock, when we arrived we found Patricia and Carin who were the planners from Glamour Weddings setting up everything perfectly and organising the guests, a nervous Dee was waiting with his best man, grooms men and sons.
Erin arrived and her Dad, Charlie proudly walked his daughter behind the bridesmaid down the Isle, Must say did see a little tear in Dee’s eye as he saw his bride for the first time.
It was a lovely ceremony, as as the sun shone down and the boats sailed past them in the sea below the couple became husband and wife and Dee grabbed Erin for their first kiss.
After a few drinks in the bar Patricia and Carin then got all the guests onto the coach to head back to the Villa evening venue, and then we had time with Erin and Dee to capture some video and photos of them both in the location where they said “I do” they were great and it also gave them time together.
The evening reception was being held as the stunning villa of L’Auberge Casa do Monte outside Vilamoura, Erin, Dee and their family were staying there so we had been there for bridal prep and when we came it had been transformed, Liza and her lovely team from The Fat Pig Catering were providing the food and bar and had been busy cooking all day, Algarve DJ Hire were providing the music for the day, Algarve Wedding Letters had provided the 4ft LOVE and Glamour Weddings did a great job with the little details… what a team these guys had!!
After the lovely meal, the couple had a few speeches and went straight into their first dance and what a setting these guys had with the entire villa lite up by Algarve Dj Hire lightening and the Large Love Letters it was just perfect.
However the evening didn’t end there at 11pm Mr Sax arrived with his saxophone and Erin and Dee wanted a special 2nd dance….. in the pool, yes this crazy couple then got into the baby pool and with the 4ft Love Letters, Mr Sax Playing and the 4 firework fountains that were provide by Algarve Wedding firework fountains they wowed their guests with one hell of a display and what great footage and photos we got (first Image).
We left everyone dancing and enjoying the party and would like to wish Dee and Erin all the best for the future, you guys chose some amazing suppliers and had an awesome day well done for making your dream come true.
