With this years wedding season nearly coming to an end we find ourselves in October and the wedding day of our lovely Dutch couple Marjolein and Lucien. The guys actually contacted us only one month before the wedding and luckily we still had their date available so we arranged a meeting in our studio in Guia.
Marjolein and Lucien had been planning their Algarve Wedding for over a year however had had problems with a Wedding Planner and at the last minute decided to to it themselves, so at the meeting we didn’t just talk about their wedding photos and video we also talked about, Dj, Bands, Hair, Makeup and balloons… They had already booked the lovely resort of Vilalara Thalassa Resort for their wedding venue so by the end of the meeting they walked away with a handful of contact details and had booked us for their special day.
So the morning of the wedding had come and these guys had booked the Elegance Package so had all day photography, the extended Highlights video, drone and Out takes, so had the full team, Olga, Kellie, Brandon, Filipe and myself.
Kellie and I went to meet Marjolien, we found the bride very relaxed with her sister Lotte who was also her bridesmaid, having their hair and makeup done by Tamsyn from Algarve Wedding Hair and Sharon from Algarve Make up by SharonPhillips., so as you can imagine it was a fun bridal prep.
The beach ceremony looked stunning, all the details had been provided by the couple and they had brought a van load of decoration out with them and it really did look lovely, and what an entrance Lucien made…….
It was a lovely ceremony, even though our team couldn’t speak Dutch you could see the love between these guys. When the couple said “I Do” the white and pink balloons were released into the warm summer sky provided by Algarve Balloon release, and then they went on for their first kiss and walked back down the isle as Husband and Wife.
The cocktail hour was held up in the Hotel grounds it made a perfect setting overlooking the sea.
After the group shots and Cake cutting we could see the sun was setting so took Marjolien and Lucien into an lovely area we had found over looking the Atlantic and they sat on the bench and had time together whilst the team captured the moment.
The couple then had a 2 hour break, which is unusual for us but it was lovely to be able to stop for a few hours and the couple had paid for all the wedding suppliers to eat in the amazing restaurant there so we all sat to a relaxing meal, again thank you guys the restaurant and food was awesome.
The guests returned at 8.30pm and started their meal and after a few speeches they came downstairs for the party…. Leandro Russo and The Pianoman band. were performing, the evening finished off with the guys from Algarve DJ Hire who had provided the music all day The 4ft Mr & Mrs Letters were provided by Algarve Wedding Letters, it was a great party, with everyone dancing the night away.
What a great day with a great couple, thank you for choosing us to be part of your special day and we wish you both all the luck in the future…. and catch up next year for your first Wedding Anniversary.
