This wedding ticked all the boxes for us – adorable couple, glamourous guests from around the world, and the most darling venue with more than its fair share of vintage flare.
After exploring all the nooks and crannies and labyrinth of rooms, we decided the four poster bed was the perfect place to photograph Justine’s gown and the cute bridesmaid dresses.
The place also had lots of mirrors giving interesting angles and framing to our photographs.
It was almost time for the first look but we stole a few moments to get the girls together for some informal portraits on the balcony.
The First Look was just wonderful. On seeing Justine, Gabe was speechless. As his eyes welled up with tears, Mark and I were quietly clicking away in the background capturing this very emotional moment.
We loved the balcony at the venue and it worked so well for some informal portraits of the bridal party.
We were able to get a little alone time with Justine and Gabe before the ceremony and that luscious red sofa was calling…
A happy relaxed Justine before the ceremony and time for the finishing touches.
Sometimes it’s just about being in the right place at the right time…
The Heirloom Inn is all about twinkly. Everywhere there are crystal droplets, chandeliers, tiny sparkling lights. Lots of attention to detail… Our couple made the table numbers with a collage of old photographs and the seating plan and order of the day were displayed on rustic windows hanging in the trees.
The ceremony was beautiful with words spoken in English and Portuguese.
Tears and laughter during the speeches…
The first dance…
And the cake cutting.
A little later in the evening it was magical watching the film Silver Tie Films had produced documenting the couples’ love story, their thoughts, hopes and dreams and also secret filming of the proposal! So glad you said yes Justine!!
Towards the end of the evening we whisked Justine and Gabe away for a few minutes into the quiet of the house to take the last photographs. You’ll have to agree, quite a special end to the most beautiful day?!
