Care to tell us a little bit about your proposal?
How did you spend the morning of your wedding? How did you deal with the nerves leading up to the wedding?
For me the getting ready was the most stressful part of the day. Unfortunately, the room that we were getting ready in was quite small so it was quite chaotic. For any future brides I defiantly recommend carefully selecting the area that you need to get ready in. The more space and light – the better!
And although it was a little stressful it ends up being one of the most special moments throughout the day as all your girls are getting ready with you. Also – a glass of champagne (or 2) defiantly helped ease the nerves
Tell us about your main outfits of the wedding day
My dress is from a brand called Willowby by Watters. Since I got engaged this was the ONLY dress that caught my eye that I initially found on Instagram. I went to a bridal store in New York and tried on a few dresses. But I kept going back to this dress on Instagram. A few weeks later I saw it was on sale at less 70% off. I just bought it online on the spot without even trying it on! And I have never looked back. My 2nd dress was a ASOS design - Just wanted something sparkly to dance in. My shoes were ASOS too. I also wore these beautiful matte gold earrings from Cata Vassalo which is a Portuguese jewellery brand. David wore a suit from a Portuguese brand called Decenio, which he loved and fit him like a glove
Tell us about your special day, was there a specific theme or style? Tell us a little about the setting, the styling and some of your favourite details
For those people that know me I have always had a boho style – so naturally all the wedding pins saved on my Pinterest were all very boho inspired. Due to Covid, our wedding planning took place over 3 years so my style and what I wanted kept changing. Our venue we had initially agreed to got closed down due to Covid – but it was a blessing in disguise as our new venue - Palacio Marques de Fronteira was so magical. It’s a 16th century palace that holds the largest collection of seventeenth-century “azulejos” (Portuguese tiles) in the world. The colour theme was orange and terracotta which complimented the blue accents of the palace so beautifully. My favourite detail was the reception and the beautiful table settings – my table flowers were a mixture of beautiful oranges, terracotta and beiges with the alternating terracotta candles and sea grass placemats, that all beautifully came together with the gorgeous Portuguese tiles and statue backdrop.
