From Brazil to Portugal.
Me and Isabel have a thing about Brazil. We loved being there some years ago. This Brazilian Wedding is something we will always cherish in our hearts.
Rodrigo and Constanza are a beautiful couple from Brazil. They decided to get married in Portugal, and chose Sintra as the place where they would love to spend a great weekend surrounded by their friends and family. They already had a friend’s wedding in Morocco and the photographer was Daniel Alonso, from People Producciones, so that was already set. After doing some research they found our work and thankfully they got in love with it as well. The moment we started to chat we understood that they were going to have a blast during their brazilian wedding weekend.
Palácio de Seteais – the most iconic wedding venue in Sintra, Portugal
They decided to get married in Palácio de Seteais, in Sintra. This gorgeous palace was built in the 18th century and its beauty is unique. For us this is one of the best wedding venues in Portugal. Also, the wedding ceremony was going to be in Penha Longa Resort’s chapel, so we couldn’t be more thrilled about this. So there we were, driving to Sintra on the day before, hoping to have some fun along Daniel and Gonçalo (who was giving an extra hand on that weekend). I mean, Constanza works in the fashion industry, and Rodrigo has a band where he plays guitar, so we were sure it was going to be dope.
The venue was beautiful. It was still a bit chill in the afternoon, so the team (so well coordinated by Carla Fiani) placed some heaters along the round tables, spread across their garden, giving such a nice atmosphere. And after some days of not so great weather, we were presented with the most beautiful sunsets ever. The light was gorgeous and the guests and Ro and Const were amazed by it.
They had a welcome dinner with some nice Jazz being played live by a local band and then a small (cof!) party, by the awesome Gui Rief that also came all the way from Brazil with them – and this guy sure knew what to play to cheer everyone up! It was around 1a.m when Ro interrupted the party to tell their friends they should take it easy because the big party of this brazilian wedding was only going to be on the next day (as you can see in the video).
The wedding day
Everyone was still a bit sleepy in the next day, but as soon as the hours passed by, everyone was having so much fun. This is what we love about destination weddings. Having so many people from so many different places that get together during this weekend makes us feel so good about what we do for a living, we can’t ever tell you all how much we’re grateful for it. And Brazilians… We just love them. Ever since we were in Rio back in 2013 we just love them so much, we can’t even explain why but we love them (we couldn’t be more excited for this Brazilian Wedding).
Constanza needed some time to wake up from her beauty sleep (Daniel even managed to get some pictures of her sleeping in her huge princess bed!). But 15 mins after we arrived she was gorgeous as always, and was getting ready by Tom Perdigão. She wore a beautiful dress from Rosa Clará that looked amazing on her.
The ceremony was just perfect (I think I’m repeating this word way too much, but I think you got the point, right?!), everything was beautifully arranged by Carla and the small chapel at Penha Longa Resort was gorgeous. After that, we drove back to Palácio de Seteais for cocktails and dinner. This was when all the fun began. We don’t know if we’re biased or not, but the energy everyone had was overwhelming – we couldn’t stop smiling all the time. We will let the images speak for themselves and show you the videos we made for this brazilian wedding.
Special thanks to everyone involved in this wedding, but also to the guests that made us feel so good during the weekend, and above all, thank you to Ro and Cons for having us and becoming good friends. We can’t wait to meet you again, either on this side of the Atlantic or in Brazil. We usually deliver 2 videos to the couple, but we wanted to do more.
We loved every second of this Brazilian Wedding.
