Once again we are back on our blog with beautiful Saloni and Brian and their gorgeous Penha Longa wedding which marked the last day of fabulous 3 days of wedding festivities.
The morning of that day resembled the one proceeding the couple´s Hindu Wedding. The girls were having their hair and make-up done at one of the Penha Longa suites, while Brian together with his family and best men dressed up across the hall at another suite. Once or twice Brian would make a swift visit to SaloniÂ´s suite, while she wasn´t around, leaving presents to her family members and herself. His sweet gesture left everyone around touched including us photographers, because we saw just how Brian´s loving kindness impacted the delicate heart of his beautiful bride to be.
The Catholic ceremony was held at the Penha Longa´s gorgeously decorated chapel. It was a beautiful and contemplative event, which included the entire mass. It was lovely to see the great number of guests that had received the Holy Communion. Being Catholics ourselves it was an important moment of communion in faith for us. After the ceremony and signing some papers Saloni and Brian had became officially man and wife!
During the reception we “stole” our newly-weds for some portraiture shots and by then the couple was already professional at their modelling skills 🙂
Great reception followed some heartfelt speeches, and after dinner and cake cutting the happy couple and their guests proceeded to a dance floor for a fabulous party!
It had been amazing three days full of welcoming warmth, kindness, joy and mutual respect and we feel so honoured to have been a part them.
Dear Saloni and Brian, thank you so much for entrusting us this unique opportunity to photograph your wedding festivities. What we loved most about your wedding celebrations is the spirit of communion, how two families were brought together and become one, and how the friends gathered and beautifully blended in with one another. It has been a great honour to have met you and we are definitely going to miss our little chats on social media 🙂 We would like to wish you many blessings in the years to come, and please let us know if you´re ever around and about, we´d love to meet up with you over Portuguese coffee 🙂
