A Vogue Wedding Film – Pena National Palace Portugal
Shall we dance? On a bright cloud of music shall we fly? Shall we dance? Shall we then say goodnight and mean goodbye? Or perchance when the last little star has left the sky, shall we still be together with our arms around each other and shall you be my new romance?
Well I don’t know about you but I definitely need an injection of sunshine this week and what better way to remotely soak up those rays than via this fabulous Friday Film by Vogue Wedding Films. Warm, summer sun, a breathtaking venue in a truly stunning location, bright colours, henna tattoos, dancing. Sigh…pass me those travel brochures, I’m out of here. So heigh ho, heigh ho, it’s off to Portugal we go…..
Vogue Wedding Films presents……
Elizabeth and Ben’s wedding was my first destination wedding, so I must admit, I was a little nervous purely for the fact of wondering if my camera gear would arrive at the other end safely and intact – thankfully it did!
Pena National Palace is situated on top of a hill high about the town of Sintra in Portugal and it’s not hard to see why they choose this venue for their wedding – it’s breath taking. Their wedding was one of the first to be held at Pena National Palace and I can safely say, I’m sure there will be more in years to come.
I arrived in Sintra a couple of days before the wedding to allow time to familiarise myself with the locations I needed to shoot. Elizabeth and Ben had already flown in from America and as family and friends began to arrive from all over the world, the wedding excitement was building.
On the wedding day, I headed over to the house where Elizabeth, her bridesmaids and family were getting ready. The intricate detail on their Sarees was beautiful and the Elizabeth’s bouquet included jewels from within the family.
The wedding ceremony took place in a traditional Portuguese style church with about 80 family and friends alongside them. Following this, guests made their way to Pena National Palace. It was a beautiful clear afternoon, so guests were treated to some fantastic views over the surrounding area. The drinks started flowing, the flamenco dancer and guitarist started playing and the atmosphere was one of happiness and delight.
After the food and speeches, it was time for some dancing outside on one of the Palace turrets where Elizabeth’s second Saree glistened beautifully in the lights.
All in all this was an amazing wedding to film and it was one of the highlights of 2012 for me.
So here it is, the beautiful wedding film by Vogue Wedding Films, sit back, put your feet up and soak up the sun……
