Penha Longa Wedding | Sintra, Portugal

The vision for this editorial took inspiration from the spectacular unique Sintra’s light and the Byronic character of the palatial mansion, Casa dos Penedos. Sintra, located in the heart of a luxuriant forest, has a unique and distinct light. A sweet, romantic, forest-filtered light that oscillates between soft pinks and yellows which determined the primary colour palette. The vendor’s team, curated by Destination Weddings in Portugal, aimed to create a radiant fantasy based on the omnipresence of Sintra’s romantic mysticism, the perfect backdrop for a couple to fondly exchange their love vows. Several details supported this utterly romantic fantasy: the artistic and stylish stationery collection by In love Weddings, the palace’s remarkable rooms with its emblematic traditional-classic features, the outdoor ceremony, the long and fluid reception table set in the main room surrounded by floor-to-ceiling windows, and the exuberant ceiling paintings. The bride wore a delicate, elegant, crisp white wedding gown by Pureza de Mello Breyner magically combined with her curly locks styled naturally and carefree, complemented by a flattering barely-there make-up. Talented Lisbon Wedding Photographers captured the editorial’s romantic atmosphere making thorough portraits to be admired and cherished throughout time.
