Real Wedding – Three Is Family In Portugal

Caarvoeiro - Ferragudo Algarve Wedding-25

Melanie & Alex   ♥   Algarve, Portugal

Photographer:   Matt + Lena Photography

 

Melanie and Alex jetted off to the golden beaches of the Algarve for a super-sweet elopement made perfectly for three, with their beautiful baby girl Josie as their only guest.

 

They said ‘I Do’ on the sheltered sandy bay of Albandeira, surrounded by tall craggy cliffs, whilst the waves of the Atlantic Ocean crashed onto the beach behind them, the swash nipping at their heels….what a wonderfully romantic setting!

 

Matt and Lena were the oh-so-talented photographers of this darling day and tell us more….

“Alex and Melanie live in Germany, they love to travel, it has always been something they were passionate about. When it came to planning their wedding the first thing they had to decide on was the destination. They imagined a simple, beautiful beach elopement. The Algarve was perfect, with its stunning coastline, secluded coves along the sand stone cliffs and the vast Atlantic Ocean.”

“They stayed at Casa Galo Verde in Carvoeiro, a place with a beautiful garden and a picturesque path down to the beach. The owner of the Casa put together Melanie’s bouquet with flowers from the garden.”

 

“They wanted to spend the day celebrating. They said that they had to get married in the morning because they just wouldn’t be able to stand the anticipation of waiting all day to say ‘I do’.  And they wanted to celebrate the whole day as newly wed husband and wife and not a minute less. They had the ceremony on a small, secluded, romantic beach in Carvoeiro just down the path form Casa Galo Verde.”

“They decorated or ‘pimped out the pram’ in Alex’s words, themselves. Their little daughter Josephine was the only guest at their wedding although she slept through most of the ceremony!”

 

“Their tiny picnic reception for three was at Feragudo beach, a small quintessential Portuguese fishing village in the western part of the Algarve. They brought paper lanterns to decorate the picnic spot and lit them together at dusk. It was a truly romantic day and a very unique wedding.”
