Annie & Jason   ♥   Sintra, Portugal

Photographer:   Piteira Photography

 

There’s something so wonderfully romantic about elopements; the idea of a day which is purely just about the two of you and for the two of you and enjoying your day totally your way.

 

Today’s elopement is no exception on the romance front that’s for sure! Annie and Jason put their wedding day in the trusted hands of Piteira Photography – they even asked if they could suggest a location for their destination wedding and boy, did the talented team come up trumps!

 

The Park and Palace of Monserrate in Sintra, near Lisbon created the most ethereal outdoor ceremony setting you’ve ever seen. It’s like a scene from A Midsummer Nights Dream. Oh, and Annie looks seriously stunning, rocking a beyond-beautiful Vera Wang gown. Prepare to be wowed with today’s wedding, it doesn’t disappoint.

Piteira Photography:

“Annie and Jason… where do I even begin? Their wedding was our first one of 2013 and was certainly a day we will never forget. They first contacted us last year to see if we were available for their wedding, they explained that it was just going to be the 2 of them, an elopement of sorts, and as we chatted about their plans for the day we knew immediately that this was going to be a wedding unlike any we´d photographed before. Neither of them had been to mainland Portugal before but had been following our blog for a while and fell in love with the country through our eyes… which is a pretty big compliment in itself, but the cherry-on-top was when they asked us to pick the location of their ceremony, as they trusted our vision and knew we would find the best spot. No pressure!!”

2People1Life Real Wedding – Enchanting Lisbon Love

Lisa & Alex   ♥   Lisbon, Portugal

Photographer:   Centrimagem Casamentos

 

When Alex and Lisa (known as 2People1Life) were researching weddings, they found amazing manor houses, castles, beaches, garden parties, and more, but not what they were looking for. So they saved their money, sold everything, including Alex’s business and their home in Manchester, England, and set off around the world in search of the ultimate wedding.

 

These two have been pretty busy, having said ‘I Do’ in every country they have visited on their travels so far. If you’ve missed any of their nuptials on their amazing worldwide wedding journey, take a sneak peek at weddings 1-33 and weddings 34-61.

 

Wedding number 45 took them to the romantic, riad rooftops of Marrakech, and after a secluded, secret ceremony in the Atlas Mountains in Morocco, Lisa and Alex arrived in Lisbon, the enchanting capital city of Portugal for wedding number 47…

Lisa says:

“We were so excited for this wedding and desperately needed to get a hair cut before we could have another picture taken! We rushed around the morning of the big day getting lost, finding parking and finally getting our hair cut and styled. We felt a million percent better about going to get our wedding on as we rushed to meet everyone!”

“We finally met with our friend and photographer Tiago, (with whom we had been in touch for around 18 months) and the team he had pulled together at 1pm on the waterfront in front of the massive and beautiful monument to Portugals Age of Discovery.”

 

“Everyone was so excited to get going and (of course), we were a little late so we all hit the ground running. Within seconds of making introductions I was in Peggy having my make up applied by the beautiful Ludmila Gonçalves, Alex was pulling out the wedding box and shaking creases out of my dress (the ever faithful Tabitha) and his suit jacket and dusting off our shoes.”

“Wedding Planner Andreia had thought of everything, she handed me Fado inspired earrings (handed down by her grandmother), a beautiful Portuguese scarf, my bouquet was traditional red roses and more importantly; carnations, a very important Portuguese symbol. Bright red carnations represent the 1974 coup d’etat started by the military to end the fascist regime ongoing since 1926 and on top of all of that, the pop of colour was just perfect against Tabitha’s vintage lace.”
