Who doesn't love fairy tales?! Especially those fairy tales that involve lots of prettiness, horses and knights in shining armor? We certainly do! And here's one of the reasons why!
This absolutely gorgeous couple, born and raised in Germany, followed their hearts and got married in the land of green hills and olive groves, beautiful Portugal. Portugal warmly welcomes guests and tourists, and shares so much beauty with them. Our newlyweds went to the land of their parents and created their special, full of memories fairy tale with the help of the talented photographer, Fabio Azanha.
Let's get cozy and enjoy eye candy art photography all the way from the heart of beautiful Portugal!
About the couple: "Cristian and myself were born in Germany and we both have Portuguese origins. We met two years ago and I could say with all confidence that it was a love first sight: we new at once that we were meant for one another. Shortly after we planned to marry. We both agreed that our wedding would have to happen in our parents´ native land: Portugal."
Marriage advice for our readers: "For a happy marriage one needs a happy, loving and determined couple that is ready to take up the challenge of making a routine life a happy life. The key to that is a great communication and a trust and loving onself helps to understand the needs of the other."
About your shoot: "It was a fulfilled childhood dream of mine (Nadine) to have a fairy tale wedding with a white mare in a woods . Our parents´ native land has plenty of places for a perfect scenery backdrop, so we found this abandoned Chapel in the mountain range of Sintra surrounded by the Sintra woods. Although it was a hot summer day, up in the hills we were met with a dense fog that gave us this perfect mystic atmosphere. It really felt like living a fairytale. We then descended to continue our session at the beach and by then the day was going to an end. We made the most of the sunset and our presence did not seem to bother the local working fisher men. Both parts of our session was a wonderful experience and thanks to great professionalism and talent of Maria and Fábio Azanha we felt very at ease throughout the whole time and we absolutely love the images."
