Justin and Charlotte's Beautiful Destination Wedding in Portugal

Portugal is one of our favourite countries for a Destination Wedding here at Zankyou. Not only is it a vibrant country with a perfect mix of modernity and tradition, it is also home to some of the most beautiful landscapes in Europe. And so it is not surprise that Charlotte and Justin chose this place to celebrate their marriage last year. With a desire to travel for their big day (and to simultaneously avoid the British weather!), the couple chose to host their wedding surrounded by Portuguese sun and sea. All attendees were profoundly moved by the ceremony and location – from the youngest page boy to the eldest grandparent.

Lugares e Momentos (Places and Moments in English!) are the narrators of this beautiful love story. Through their magnificent photographs, they tell the story of Charlotte and Justin’s dream wedding day – one that will surely remain in their hearts and memories forever thanks to this wonderful wedding album!

The big day arrives. Heart palpitations, intense nerves, rings in place ready to be exchanged, vows written for sharing during the ceremony, handkerchiefs in the hands of those who know they will not be able to contain their tears; everything is ready! And after a long wait, Charlotte and Justin are finally ready to say “I do”!

Since their engagement, Justin and Charlotte had dreamed of marrying on the beach, where they could enjoy a refreshing sea breeze and stunning panoramic views during their ceremony. And thanks to Paula & Karina, the wedding planning duo behind Algarve Wedding Planners, their dream came true, and they married at the Forte da Nossa Senhora da Rocha.

A dream wedding for a most deserving couple. Charlotte and Justin not only experienced a lot of love between them on their wedding day, but received it from their family and friends who flew over to be with them. In addition to the hard work that went into organising their wedding abroad, they also thanked the providers they worked with in order to create the wedding that the two of them had always wanted together.

“The location was fantastic, the food was delicious, the different venues for the different parts of the day were beautifully decorated, and the whole day flowed beautifully!” were Charlotte and Justin’s words at their reception, which took place at the prestigious Vidamar Resort.

It was a remarkable day, full of smiles, tears, laughter, kisses, affection and much love. Lugares e Momentos, tasked with recording these complex emotions in an image, here offer eternity to their love with these beautiful photos.
