Elaine and Johns Wedding Abroad at Os Agostos

We met Elaine and John many months before their wedding day when we met in Armação de Pera where we spent a few hours doing their Engagement photos. This was a really good opportunity to get to know them better and we learned we all had a LOVE for the finer things in Life: Good Food and drink!


We also loved meeting their little boy who is a similar age to our daughter, and it’s always fun working with children because you never know what mood they will be in! Turns out he was a pro! Even though he badly hurt his leg a few days prior to the shoot he was still on top form; giggling away!

The ceremony was in a small Portuguese village in the countryside at Santa Barbara de Nexe Church!  The church is so beautiful and its lovely to take wedding guests to such a small typical village so they get to see parts of Portugal they probably wouldn’t see on a normal holiday! 


Plus it was great for guests to cool down at a local bar and enjoy a few Superbocks and some Ice Cream!

We all struggled a bit in 40-degree heat! But hey insist the hot weather the main reason most people choose a wedding abroad! The good thing was that Os Agostos has some shady areas so you can escape the heat if you want to… or enjoy soaking up the sun!


Speeches during the cocktail hour was so much more fun than having them round the table, and created a much better background for photos and was perfect to capture the reactions of friends and family.


Just before guests entered for dinner we stole a few minutes to capture some photos of Elaine and John together, this way they didn’t loose too much time away from friends and family.

Dinner was in the Marquee and decoration was vintage themed and everything looked so beautiful. Once the dinner was over it was time to party the night away, and thanks to the help of Algarve Wedding Planners everything ran smoothly throughout the day!


Here’s a lovely email we received from Elaine after the wedding day:
