Today we’re featuring a beautiful Portuguese wedding submitted by the bride, Catarina, who describes it as “vintage” and “kitschy”, and I totally agree! Her ruffled pink dress is fabulous – she’s a fashion designer who chose a perfectly chic and retro dress! Dário, her husband, is a graphic designer and created their wedding logos and those adorable valentine seating cards. If Amelie was getting married, she would look like Catarina :)

Catarina says: The wedding took place in Funchal, a city from Madeira, a beautiful island in Portugal where my husband was born. We wanted it to have a “kitsch” and “vintage” mood and the venue with a disco ball and mirrors was perfect!

A vintage picture of Madeira was the scenario for photos with friends and family, and the mustaches added some fun to the party.

Our guests could see which was their table in lovely vintage valentine cards, and found little typical Portuguese tiles with the respective number on the table. The cards were also for them to leave us a message.

It is a tipical restaurant from Madeira and we even had a performance from the dancers of “Bailinho da Madeira”, the typical dance of the island. We prepared a few surprises, such as a special transmission of radio and a video about us and our love story.
