27 Feb Vanessa & Rui Wedding in Pestana Palace, Lisbon
A Fairytale Wedding in Lisbon – Pestana Palace
By Aguiam Wedding Photography Portugal
When a couple decides to get married in the historical Monastery of Jerónimos and have their wedding reception in the iconic venue Pestana Palace, both in Lisbon, we knew from the start that the bar was set quite high. In both these superb locations, the wedding story of Vanessa and Rui took place, and was told like as if we were watching a Hollywood movie. This wedding photoshoot is dignified of us saying “sit back and enjoy”. This couple, coming directly from New York to Lisbon, offered us a dream day, where their confidence on our work and in our photographers is quite evident. We are grateful for this.
Pestana Palace is one of those beautiful venues in Lisbon
This couple knew exactly what they wanted. It would be an unforgettable wedding. Organizing your wedding ceremony at Jeronimos Monastery isn’t very easy because there are a lot of strict rules to follow. Also the church doesn’t really close for the public so you will always have some curious tourists at your ceremony, and photographing with their mobile phones as well. It’s quite funny though but we know that not everybody likes to get so much exposure. Pestana Palace is one of those beautiful venues in Lisbon that even though it isn’t right in the center of the city, it is quite close and has an amazing view over the city and the 25 Abril Bridge. All rooms are different, with different colors. One can clearly understand that each room was created to a certain ambiance and also it is really easy to imagine how would it be to be in a party in a XIX century. Vanessa and Rui chose this venue for their reception because it is full of history and its very refined, and it turned out to be an incredible party!
