Algarve Beach Wedding
One of the first questions we ask to a couple who’s planning a destination wedding in the Algarve is: why? Why the Algarve? How does your story connect to this sunny part of our country?
Most people come because they are somehow connected to the area. Either they grew up spending long summer vacations with their parents there, others recently discovered it and fell madly in love with our food, beaches or just the local energy that seems to attract so many people. Whatever the reason may be, we are well aware that Algarve is still one of Portugal’s best hidden treasures.
Both Larisa and Timo studied in Coimbra in a Erasmus program, so when they decided to get married, Algarve popped in their minds. Away from Timo’s home country Finnish cold weather, the golden sunny beaches of our Portuguese coast got to their hearts. A relaxed symbolic ceremony, celebrated by a close friend, at one of the most iconic places to get married in the area. Lady of the Rock is a small fort with a tiny chapel on it. From there, you have a clear view over the ocean, surrounding beaches and can also see Albufeira from afar. Such a magical and romantic place to get married!
Golden light, sea views everywhere you look and a very relaxed vibe make this wedding one of our favourites from last year.
