A tiled Lisbon wedding at Xabregas Palace. After visiting some venues, they chose the Xabregas Palace downtown in Lisbon. The décor of the 17th century palace, the big rooms and pateo with a unique collection of traditional Portuguese tiles and oozed history made the final decision.This gorgeous couple wanted to put together their friends and family in one of their favorite cities in Europe, Lisbon. They were keen to have one venue for the ceremony and reception to keep the flow of the day. They also wanted it to be easy for their guests to get home after the wedding.
With the help of the amazing Holly from Wonderlust wedding planners, the theme for their adventure on Lisbon was designed. The Navy Blues, Burnt oranges and portuguese tiles started to come to the layout. A Broken Arch floral for the ceremony and the gold chairs with some details with blue tiles were a perfect environment for the vows.
Thank you to all vendors that worked so passionately in this wedding, especially to Holly from Wonderlust events to do so easy work in this wedding.
This beautiful wedding has been published in Martha Steward wedding blog, thank you so much!
A tiled Lisbon wedding at Xabregas Palace
This wedding was so special for the mix of zimbabwean and scottish culture that the couple brought to the day. One nice tradition from Zimbabwe happened when the bride was walking down the aisle. It is considered that she is too precious to touch the (dirty) ground. So scarves/pashminas are laid down for her to walk on. Bride´s cousins and sister-in-law surprised her by performing this tradition when the bride entered the courtyard. The scottish tradition was present all day with the groomsmen wearing black watch tartans and the best men wore Scottish spirit tartans.
This couple loves food and they got one of the best caterers in Portugal (Penha Longa Catering) with local food such as Ericeira spider crab with bread toasts and olive oil that grew naturally close to my beach, so I was even more in love if possible!
If you like the portuguese traditions and tiles I have photographed weddings in National monuments like Fronteira palace or Gremio Palace. You can contact me here if you are looking for a Lisbon wedding photographer.
