For this shoot we decided to explore the concept of an elopement wedding set in the Algarve, which was shot at the stunning Tivoli Marina Vilamoura Hotel, which we consider the perfect location for couples to have an intimate elopement wedding. This stunning venue suits all typed of couples and showcases a beautiful white sandy beach, perfect for a wedding ceremony. The hotel also benefits from having a private terrace area, allowing you to take advantage of its magnificent sea views.

Our team created an intimate reception dinner setting for the couple, using pinks and blues, which worked well with the essence of the sea in the background. The designs were used to create an elopement destination wedding vibe which was romantic and elegant and which was perfect for the look we were trying to achieve.
