Forte da Cruz Wedding

Nassim and Adam’s destination wedding in Portugal, at Forte da Cruz, Estoril, was a classical family celebration. Travelling from the United States, the couple, their family, and closest friends enjoyed an elegant black-tie wedding planned with refinement and taste by the seashore. Once a coastline defence fortress from the 17th century, Forte da Cruz was remarkably restored and turned into an elegant wedding venue in the Lisbon coastal area. Right by the water, the grand building has beautiful open terraces and extensive balconies that catch the unique Atlantic light so dear to our photographers. This particular light is spectacular for portraits since it flatters everyone and helps translate wedding day emotions into images.

On a typically Portuguese spring day, Nassim and Adam's outdoor wedding ceremony was endearing, followed by a spirited cocktail. The Lisbon Wedding Photographers team took candid photographs benefiting from the graceful guests' and couple's expressions during these wedding moments. It's always rewarding to photograph weddings at Forte da Cruz because of the myriad of compositions the architecture of the building provides. Especially during the couple session where the adorned arcades add romanticism to every scene. This venue is a Lisbon Wedding Photographers' solid ally when creating genuinely timeless and delightful wedding photographic coverages.
