ELOPEMENT SINTRA – CASSY & DAVID
What if instead of a big wedding, we could just… elope? What if we had a really simple celebration and use our budget to travel all over Europe? What if it could be just the two of us, sharing our deepest feelings with each other, in the woods? Would it still be beautiful? The answer is yes. To all the questions.
There are so many ways love stories can be celebrated. Finding the one way that suits you is the hardest part. It takes courage to have a wedding away from family but, at the same time, it can be incredibly freeing not having to deal with everyone’s expectations. Listening to your own voice as a couple and finding the right place, even if it’s in another country. Listening to your heart.
Many people say they will never get married because they feel uncomfortable being the center of attention. However, every time we show them this kind of ceremony, we get a very excited “can I do that?”. The answer is yes: you can do whatever you want. It’s your freakin’ wedding. It’s your future together. Your love story.
Cassy and David flew from Australia to Portugal to elope in a place they had never seen before. The little chapel in Monserrate Palace is the perfect stage for small and intimate ceremonies. The way the walls fade into the trees is a poem for lovers waiting to be written.
