This stunning destination wedding is the perfect blend of Mediterranean citrus and bohemian glam style! Alexandra and Nik knew that the laid back and welcoming atmosphere of Os Agostos would be the perfect venue to celebrate their wedding in style on the Portuguese coast! Passionate Photography and Algarve Events helped the lovely pair plan their perfect wedding day from afar!
Mediterranean Citrus Inspired Destination Wedding
The olive groves and fruit trees of their country villa venue inspired the Mediterranean citrus style of Alex and Nik’s summer wedding. A crisp palette of blue, white, and yellow suited the elegant countryside setting, with touches of natural greenery and an abundance of citrus fruits. Bride Alexandra chose a peekaboo lace wedding dress from Yolan Cris, with a mix of embroidered tulle and guipure accenting the fitted skirt and low cut back. She added the perfect bohemian bridal touch with a crystal flower circlet as stunning headpiece. Aude Touly created the bride’s cascading bouquet out of fresh white flowers and eucalyptus leaves to suit the natural elegance of the venue. Nik and his groomsmen stayed classic and cool in linen suits perfect for the climate – the groom looked stylish in a tailored blue suit and the best men wore double breasted cream jackets and white chinos.
The couple met in Barbados on holiday in their teens and enjoyed a brief summer romance, but were destined to reunite years later. Nik proposed in the ocean off the beach where they first met! To celebrate their international courtship, guests signed a vintage globe that would serve as the newlyweds’ guest book. After saying their vows in an intimate garden ceremony, the couple skipped family photos to join their guests in the pool courtyard. The cocktail hour resembled a farmer’s market, with fresh fruits and a sangria station, while hanging flowers danced in the breeze. Dinner took place in the marquee on site, overlooking the venue’s orange orchards and olive fields. The beautiful bounty of nature made its way into the reception, with swags of greenery and citrus fruits adorning the wrought iron chandeliers and covering the long tables.
