Lidesvideo makes wedding videos that are different from other companies, and believe me when I say different. In contrast to other providers, these have a part that is literally like a movie. We warn you: this movie is not something romantic, but is extremely fun and interactive. The script will be handed over to the guests in the afternoon. Lidesvideo is the only company in Portugal that films this way. Would you be up for it? You can find an example of the video below!
We hope these photos and videos have inspired you to hold your destination wedding in Portugal – with the knowledge that it will all be preserved through the artistic lens of talented photographers who know the area. A Portuguese photographer will have a better ability to incorporate all the wonders of their country into your destination wedding album, so choose one of these top 4 instead of bringing one from home!
