We love Matt+Lena Photography, their inspiring shoots always bring fresh ideas for couples considering a destination wedding. This styled shoot taken during winter in the Algarve is a great example of how couples can enjoy winter weddings in the Mediterranean climate. They explain more about their lovely work…
The idea for this shoot is to let people see how beautiful winter can be in the Algrve, it’s a simple beach set up but the true inspiration is the landscape and the season itself. It was photographed on Tres Irmaos beach in Alvor in the western Algarve over late December and early January.
Winter Wedding Inspiration
The romantic picnic on the cliff top above the beach would be so perfect for an elopement, but beach picnics are also a great idea for a cocktail hour before the reception. Below, on the beach, there is a number of restaurants that would beautifully suit a small wedding reception.
Our model was Katya Goncharova. She is also a professional dancer who often preforms choreographed dances at weddings with her dance partner.
Simplicity is always elegant and so we tried to keep things as simple as possible with a touch of rustic charm. We hope this inspires some future brides and grooms to see perfection in the Algarve winter and we hope to photograph a winter wedding in the Algarve one day, it would be amazing.
