After few weeks of absence from our blog we´re back with this gorgeous Forte da Cruz wedding we have been very fortunate to photograph.
Bruna had contacted us little before Christmas of last year and I couldn´t help but find what an interesting story the couple shares: two souls of different nationalities that somehow found their way to one another and are making their life together in a different country to theirs. Story quite similar to Fábio´s and mine 🙂
Their love story is filled with cute coincidences like one where on the couple´s very first trip together, they booked a room in a hotel in Bali unaware that they booked a suite for newly engaged couples. So on their arrival they found their hotel suite decorated with flowers and special congratulation welcome 😉
Their engagement was truly romantic in where Ronan organised a surprise boat trip over the Iguaçu Falls in Brazil for his girlfriend and her parents. He proposed in Portuguese to completely unaware and smitten Bruna who happily said yes. That day was very special for the precious presence of the future bride´s parents who witnessed this beautiful moment.
The place and location was very much well thought through. Portugal was close enough for the guests coming from Ireland and Brazilians spoke the language and had ancestory here. The date was also picked thoughtfully as June the 12th is St Anthony´s day -the patron of match making and it is Portugal´s very own special Valentine´s Day.
Bruna and Ronan wanted to achieve a beautiful and stylish wedding that featured and celebrated their differences that wonderfully complete one another. Stunning Forte da Cruz has helped to achieve that. Our first experience photographing wedding in Forte da Cruz was on the occasion of memorable Sangeet night last September. And no matter how often we visit this place it always enchants us with its mysterious charm.
Bruna and Ronan´s wedding was this extra unique to us for the presence of my big brother who video- documented this lovely event! It was Karol´s debut filming a wedding on the Portuguese soil and we hope that it was the first experience of many. Below you can view the wedding´s trailer 🙂
Bruna and Ronan, may you both enjoy endless years of happiness together. You two deserve it! Thank you for entrustig us the honour of documenting your big day. We hope that those images reflect how amazing your Portugal destination wedding was!
