A tuk tuk ride and a romantic garden wedding in Portugal
After the ceremony, Ana & Eládio hired a tuk tuk to take them to Coimbra’s Botanical Garden. This is our favorite garden in Coimbra, we were super excited when the couple asked us to do a photo shoot there. It was really special to spend that time with them. They were just married and enjoying some brief moments just for themselves. We advise every couple to reserve some minutes after the ceremony for portraits, it’s a very special and intimate moment.
Wedding Reception and Party at Convento de Sandelgas
After the brief stroll around the botanical garden, the bride and groom joined their family and friends at Convento de Sandelgas. This is a perfect venue for a romantic garden wedding in Portugal, Sandelgas has a big, beautiful garden, and a lush cedar grove, suited for hosting the wedding guests and also for enjoying some more intimate moments alone. The dinner was served in an intimate stone room, cozy and distinctive. We cannot think of a better way to celebrate love than to really be present family, friends and each other. It’s really important to focus on each other on your wedding day! That’s just what Ana & Eládio did, and it was so emotional.
