Today, we’re sharing an adventurous Portugal elopement that swept us off our feet from the moment we laid eyes on it. Destination planner and Ruffled vendor, Tie the knot Santorini, made Heather and Alan’s day as special as can be – beginning with a sunrise couple’s surf and ending with a slow dance surrounded by curtains of twinkle lights. We’re enamored by the monochromatic blooms from GreenPic’k, including the likes of peonies, ranunculus and anemones that look too good to be true. As you admire the gallery from Chris & Ruth below, you won’t help but be transported to this very cliff in Sintra where H+A said “I Do.”
From the planner + designer, Tie the knot Santorini: This adventurous elopement in Sintra, Portugal was for us the perfect version of a modern fairy tale!!How would a modern adventurous couple plan their wedding day at one of the most beautiful locations on earth, at a charming land of palaces, beautiful nature, small forests and ideal surf beaches? Alan & Heather’s wedding day started early in the morning, with a cruise at the coastline around Sintra, which was combined with a surf session they enjoyed so much!Then back at the hotel to get ready for their wedding!!
The couple got ready at different rooms and drove separately at the dreamy Monserrate Palace, for their First Look. Alan & Heather saw each for the first time in their wedding outfits-alooking absolutely stunning- at the ruins of an old church!! The moment was unreal!!In the meantime, our team was setting up for them a modern hexagonal arch, high on the cliffs, with the Atlantic waves just below them.
For the floral design the amazing ladies of GreenPic’k used lots of white peonies, white garden roses, ranunculus and anemones. Sooo beautiful!! The ceremony itself was full of laughter, tears of happiness and sooo much love!!
Just after the sun had set, the newlyweds arrived at the most beautiful, fairy-light dinner set up we had had prepared for them, at the greenest gardens of Biester Charm House, in the heart of Sintra!!Our color scheme, elegant & modern, white, black, grey and deep blue.A romantic dinner one could not ever forget!! The magic atmosphere was complemented with dancing under the moonlight, delicious food and the tastier cake ever made! A wedding day out of this world!! The dreamiest adventurous elopement in Portugal.
