With the intention of inspiring brides to travel to Portugal for their destination wedding, PERLA PHOTOGRAPHY worked with stylists IN LOVE UNIQUE WEDDINGS to capture this editorial at HOTEL TIVOLI PALÁCIO DE SETEAIS in Lisbon. Showcasing Portugal's beauty and history, it makes the most of the luxurious 18th century European architecture. With its luscious greenery and sweeping valley view it makes for a pretty spectacular and fairytale like wedding venue.

"To sweep you off your feet, wedding details were planned and designed by In Love Unique Weddings, with flowers by ATELIER DECORELLE creating a timeless romantic inspiration. A light blue-grey pallet was chosen for the stationery and decor ensemble, brightened by gold details that perfectly resemble the colour tones and opulence of the venue. To portray a magical and intimate celebration fit for royalty, a beautiful hand-drawn sketch of the Palace exterior with its distinctive triumphal arch on the invitation suite was complimented with gold calligraphy and wax seal. A 3-tier wedding cake in gold, white and blue colours by extraordinaire designer Susana from SWEET STYLIST WEDDINGS was the final touch to this elegant affair. The bridal gown and groom’s attire from PENHALTA was custom fitted for our real couple, Silvia and Bruno. Be sure to hit play on the highlight video by HUGO SOUSA FILMS below!

Sintra is a resort town in the foothills of Portugal’s Sintra Mountains, only 20 minutes away from the capital city, Lisbon. A longtime royal sanctuary, its forested terrain is studded with pastel coloured villas and palaces, making this village truly a whimsical and magical place and one of Portugal’s most beloved jewels. From medieval gardens and fountains to adorned courtyards of roses, there’s beauty at every corner. Without doubt, the old charm of the 19 century romantic architecture takes you back in time."
