Samia and Luis – Quinta da Vilarinha

Highlights of the Wedding day

Quinta da Vilarinha
Algarve, Portugal

Samia is Pakistani and Luis is Portuguese. Their idea was to mix both cultures throughout their special day. Samia challenged Gina, the florist, with a simple Pakistani wedding photo. Gina´s inspiration resulted in an awesome result. Flowers pending from the trees surrounding the ceremony place  (Quinta da Vilarinha´s back yard) gave it a mystical atmosphere not possible to describe by words, one had to be there. The couple´s wish had come true there was a touch of both cultures everywhere: the bride´s dress, the decoration, the celebration, the food, the music…
Luis surprised Samia after the ceremony with a romantic 4×4 ride in the countryside, her reaction deserved an image as she was so excited to get into the seat. The traditional Pakistani games (while the couple were out) with their loud negotiations and laughter made it unique and different.
Towards the end of the day, I was packing my stuff and thinking how beautiful the ceremony place looked… Then, on a spur of the moment I had an idea and decided to unpack everything and invite Samia, Luis and 2 bridesmaids to produce one last image (the first one below). We made magic and I´m sure that moment will be unforgettable for all of us.
