Planning a destination wedding is tricky. Even more so if the two of you are from two different countries. Emilia is from Poland, Fernando is from Portugal, and they both reside in England. But three things made it possible: an 18-month engagement, amazing vendors like photog André Teixeira + wedding designer Sofia Ferreira of Brancoprata and wedding coordinator José Santos of Colunata Eventos, and of course—the internet. Kudos on pulling it off so gorgeously!

The other half of the Brancoprata team, Sofia Ferreira, designed all of the flowers. They look amazing paired with our cheery bride, yes?

The ceremony venue was a simple decision: Fernando’s local church in Portugal, ideal for a wedding of 80.

As for the reception spot… We choose Colunata Eventos for the venue as it is a beautiful place in amazing scenery with great management and excellent costumer service provided by José Santos
