The majestic natural ambiance of Casa Dos Penedos (a castle built in 20th century, by the famous architect Raul Lino), located in the heart of Sintra, was the primary source of inspiration for this vibrant and exotic editorial shoot featuring a real couple, Alannah and Victor. We caught up with one of the shoot's photographers, Isadora of Isa Wines Photography to get the full scoop! (See below.)
"This stunning pink palace with its lush gardens, picturesque interior spaces, and an outdoor atrium featuring a beautiful stone fountain, was the perfect setting for this romantic affair in Portugal. Our ceremony, which was set in the lower gardens of the palace, featured colorful florals designed by Siloh Florals growing up from the natural landscape to compliment the stunning pond and cascading greens that trail down the facade of the palace.
The bride wore a gorgeous whimsical embroidered floral gown by Marchesa as a soft touch to balance the powerful design and palette of the shoot. After the ceremony, the couple proceeded to the surrounding tropical forest for a celebratory toast amidst the exotic foliage of the location!
Our dinner table was set in front of the decorative stone fountain of the atrium, with an elongated tablescape, bright florals, and decorative bird candle sticks adorning the tables. To end the day, the couple enjoyed a beautiful moment together on the terrace which has the most picturesque views of the hills and palaces of the heart of Sintra, one of the most magical places in the world!"
