Give us some tropical leaves and a summer breeze, and we’ll be yours forever. So I guess you could say we’re pretty taken with this vibrant castle wedding in Sintra, Portugal! Teeming with sunset-colored blooms, moonstone jewelry, rattan furniture and kitschy peacock accents pieces, this summertime soiree designed by AMV Weddings is a stroke of pure genius. The floral crescent ceremony brought to life by Siloh Floral feels more like a fairytale lagoon than an ivy-climbing moat, though both scenarios seem pretty romantic to us! Shalae Byrd captures the feeling through a dreamy visual narrative we simply can’t wait for you to dive into. Ready to fall madly in love with this vibrant Portuguese castle wedding?
From the Photographer, Shalae Byrd Photography: This majestic, destination wedding editorial at Casa dos Penedos in Sintra, Portugal was vibrant, exotic, and chic. This stunning pink palace with its lush gardens, picturesque interior spaces, and an outdoor atrium featuring a beautiful stone fountain, was the perfect setting for this romantic affair in Portugal.
The ceremony featured florals from Siloh Floristry that were selected with a natural aesthetic in mind, complimenting the stunning pond and cascading greens that trail down the facade of the palace.
The bride wore a gorgeous whimsical, embroidered floral gown by Marchesa as a soft touch to balance the powerful design and palette of the shoot. Following the ceremony, the couple proceeded to the surrounding tropical jungle for a champagne toast amidst the foliage of the venue before entering the reception. The reception featured an elongated tablescape, bright florals, and decorative bird candlesticks adorning the tables, all set in front of the stone fountain in the atrium. The sweetheart table held the modern, geometric cake, designed with the lush green of the venue in mind.
How darling are these birds of paradise? It simply doesn’t get more exquisite than this castle wedding in Sintra, Portugal! Though we’ll always have a soft spot for this Palacio Fronteira gem 😉
