03 Mar Yvonne & João Palace Wedding in Lisbon
Destination Wedding Photography in Portugal – Palace Wedding in Lisbon
by Aguiam Wedding Photography Portugal
There are couples that seem to be taken from a French movie, and this is one of them. Yvonne and João traveled from Switzerland to get married in the wedding venue Palace of the Rocha do Conde de Óbidos in Lisbon. Their quite personal and original personalities contrasted with the centenary tile walls and the gold leaf surrounding the venue. Profoundly in love with each other, their wedding photographs ended up being dignified of cinematic royalty. Makes you sigh doesn’t it? There is a curious detail about Yvonne’s dress. Guess what? João designed it for her! Yes, this is a fact. The groom designed the bride’s wedding dress. This is why it is so particular and different from what we usually see. Another detail is the jewelry Yvonne wears on her chest. It is a gold family piece João inherited. This lock is called Coração de Viana. “Portuguese jewellery has a strong religious inspiration, and the Heart of Viana is no exception. This design, which is currently used as a symbol of the city of Viana do Castelo, arose in Portugal with the cult of the Sacred Heart of Jesus at the end of the century. XVIII. The cornucopias at the top of the Heart are a stylisation of the flames that spring from this sacred symbol. The Heart of Viana soon became an icon and emotional heritage of Portugal and of the Portuguese art of filigree. For those who own it, the Heart Of Viana is a symbol of honesty and generosity.” Beautiful isn’t it?
