Gemma and Paul
TIED THE KNOT IN QUINTA DO LAGO
Gemma and Paul had a wedding full of beautiful decor details, and lots of laughter, they went with a relaxed vintage vibe for their villa wedding.
Our lovebirds Gemma and Paul had a vision from the beginning as to how their beautiful day would look, and it will always be one of the prettiest weddings we have ever been a part of. Bunting hanging from the trees, hay bales, hanging hearts and paper lanterns, their table plan hanging from the tree, rustic barrels filled with ice and champagne, and the beginning of our trend writing menu´s on wood pallets. It was filled with love and laughter with such a great bunch of people celebrating with them, and the energy fueled band made it a night to remember!
When we got engaged last year we both knew straight away that we wanted to have our wedding abroad in the sun somewhere. Portugal really stood out to us and we decided to have a villa wedding, and found a beautiful villa in Quinta do Lago.
At first I was a bit worried that we wouldn’t be able to make a villa look like a wedding venue, unless we were to bring over tons of decorations with us, but then I came across Amelia and Jane at Unique and Chic Weddings. They offer different packages, whether its for start to finish wedding planning, or on the day co-ordinating. They have an amazing collection of decorations that you can hire to make any venue look great, and they also found decorations in Portugal that we couldn’t bring over with us. They were such a great help leading up to the wedding, recommending different suppliers, and constantly made an effort to help. On the wedding day they literally transformed the place and did everything they could to make the day run smoothly. We couldn’t have planned the wedding without them and definitely couldn’t have had the amazing day that we did without them there.
We’d highly recommend that anyone thinking of getting married in Portugal gets in touch with Amelia and Jane.
Thank you so much again guys xxx
