From French Grey PhotographyA styled shoot in the amazing Sintra region of Portugal, just a few kilometres outside of Lisbon. Inspired by the amazing colors, products and beauty of the countryside.

We worked with a very experienced team of vendors from the region, to create some beautiful images which will hopefully inspire future couples to choose Portugal for their destination wedding. The people and choice of high quality vendors on offer in this small but historically rich country is amazing!

With the assistance of my awesome wife, Kasia, from French Grey Events; and Monica the owner of Amor Pra Sempre, we found the best of the best within Portugal to collaborate with us on this shoot.

This fabulous team included the likes of Tania from T Bakes, this american-trained patisserie chef makes the most amazing sugar creations, so good you just want to stare and marvel at them all day long (yes, even the leaves and flower on the cake is edible)! The beautiful dresses provided by Joana Montez Atelier are romantically detailed with layer upon layer of chiffon and beautiful bead detailing, that were married perfectly with the amazing hand-crafted jewelry of Sylvie Castro from SYO luxury jewelry.

Stationary and graphics were created by Nabe Fabrics from France, a partnership which started years ago when we first met at the Salon de Marriage au Carrousel du Louvre in Paris. This talented team were amazing to work with and helped us to create custom invitation designs for our happy “bride and groom.”

We got lucky and had the most amazing beautiful sunny day at the vintage Quinta nestled high up in the Sintra park, with amazing views of the ocean. The whole place was at our disposal for the shoot, and the venue was full of amazing props that we used for the styled shoot. Future couples can also choose from an array of furnishings and accessories on site to make their wedding decor uniquely European and add that touch of vintage.

From Brancoprata… When the bride first emailed us, we immediately realized that this was going to be a special event! Both the bride and groom live abroad and they decided to get married in the north of Portugal, at Pousada do Monte de Santa Lúzia. A beautiful hotel with a spectacular view overlooking Viana do Castelo, a very well know city in the North of Portugal! It was a weekend of various activities for the guests, where they had the chance to learn more about portuguese traditions and customs. As far as the wedding day, the couple wanted to create an elegant and timeless ambience! They incorporated little touches that made the day unique! For instance, the cake topper used was a vintage piece designed for the bride’s parents wedding! To honor the groom’s cultural background, the bride did some traditional henna art. The couple and guests enjoyed a beautiful sunset during cocktail hour and after dinner they danced the night away!
