Many congratulations to Charlotte and Martin who recently got married in the sunny Algarve.

Charlotte contacted me last year having seen the wedding photos I took of her boss in Sydney, Australia. So when she asked me to photograph her wedding in Portugal I pretty much jumped at the chance. Not only do I love to travel and experience other cultures but it was also a relief to get away the from the grey British weather.

I arrived a few days early to check out the locations and also to photograph the BBQ party the evening before at Charlotte’s parents home. On the day itself I started with some preparation shots of Charlotte and Martin who was just next door. Then it was a 30 minute taxi journey to the elegant Anglican Church of  St Luke’s Monte de Palhagueira up in the hills. After the ceremony we all headed back to the coast for the reception at the prestigious restaurant Casa Do Lago. What a location with  a lake on one side and a lagoon on the other ! And of course with the beautiful Portuguese weather everything took place outdoors on the terrace. Great food, speeches and some really energetic dancing as you can see from the images below.  A really unforgettable wedding ! It was also nice to meet Charlotte’s Maid of Honour, Clare, who I follow on Twitter and who is an excellent wedding planner. Check out her site here

Meus sinceros parabens a Charlotte e Martinque recentemente se casaram no ensolarado Algarve.

Charlotte contactou-me o ano passado depois de ter visto algumas fotos que tirei do seu chefe em Sidney-Australia. Quando ela me pediu pra fotografar seu casamento em Portugal, nao exitei:nao apenas porque eu amo viajar e experimentar outras culturas, mas tambem foi um alivio fugir do clima Ingles.
Eu cheguei alguns dias antes pra conhecer a regiao e fotografar o churrasco ocorrido na noite anterior ao casamento ,na casa dos pais de Charlotte.No dia do casamento comecei a fotografar Charlotte e Martin que estavam na casa ao lado. Houve uma viajem de taxi que durou aproximadamente 30 minutos ate chegarmos na Igreja St Luke’s no alto das colinas. Apos a cerimonia todos nos voltamos para a costa para a recepcao do tao prestigiado “Casa do Lago”.Que lugar! Um lago de um lado e uma lagoa do outro. Lindo dia no tipico clima Portugues. Tudo aconteceu ao ar livre, boa comida e algumas dancas energeticas como podem ser vistas nas imagems abaixo. Foi tambem um prazer conhecer a madrinha de Charlotte, Clare, excelente organizadora de casamentos e quem eu sigo no Twitter. Por favor confira sua pagina
