Josie & Pete | Pine Cliffs Destination Wedding, Portugal

Incredible wedding photo of a couple on a clifftop overlooking a

I first met Josie and Pete whilst shooting her sister’s wedding at the wonderful Villa Balbianello on Lake Como. It was such a beautiful wedding with the most fun and lovely people you could wish to spend a day with, so when Josie asked whether I might be free to photograph her Pine Cliffs Destination Wedding in Portugal the following year I was more than a little excited!

I’ve been to Portugal for a few holidays and surf trips before, so I had a rough idea of what to expect – but when I arrived to the sight of the dramatic cliffs, lush gardens and pine trees at the spot they’d be getting married at, it was way beyond my expectations! A photographers dream! What could be a more beautiful and romantic setting for a wedding than in a beautiful cliffside garden overlooking the sea! If you’re considering a destination wedding at the Pine Cliffs Resort in Portugal, please get in touch!

Josie, Pete, family and guests were just as awesome as I remembered them to be. So laid back and a total joy to be around. Needless to say the wedding day was one of fun, happiness, love and laughter. Oh, and there was a little spot of dancing too!! I’ve seen a few guests cameo on the guitar at a couple of weddings, but never quite throw out the incredible shredding solo’s that these guests managed!! Just keep scrolling and you’ll see…

Thanks so much to Josie and Pete for choosing me to be their Pine Cliffs destination wedding photographer! Enjoy the photos!
