As soon as we got engaged, we knew we wanted to get married in the Algarve and started planning it straight away. I had visions of a traditional town square surrounded by trees and fairy lights and that is exactly what we found with the help of Carin from Glamour Weddings Algarve.
Our reception was held firstly on a sun-drenched balcony overlooking the mountains in Monchique with an acoustic guitarist playing in the background and then secondly in the tree-lined square I had always dreamed of.
Amazing Portuguese Food
Our guests ate and drank Portuguese food and danced the night away with a band under the stars with views of the mountains. Glamour weddings enabled us to work with different suppliers in order to create a really unique and personal setting surrounded by candles and traditional Portuguese buildings.
Due to Covid-19, we had to move our wedding from May to September but our wedding planners did this effortlessly and we still had the most perfect wedding. Our guest numbers reduced from 65 to 28 due to travel restrictions but this worked really well with the intimate layout of the venue.
Glamour Algarve Weddings
We originally chose Glamour Weddings because we didn’t want an “off the shelf” wedding but rather something unique and personalised to us and that is exactly what they achieved. Although they have lots of brilliant wedding venue ideas already, they found one for us that perfectly matched our ideas.
Pronovias Wedding Dress
My day dress was from Pronovias a Spanish designer purchased from https://bcjosephine.co.uk/ and I styled it with a cathedral length veil which looked amazing in the photographs. For the night time, I changed into a more fitted Stella York dress from https://puurebride.co.uk/
