Alina and João’s perfect wedding photo shoot in Òbidos, Portugal

Alina and João are one of the many couples who have had their wedding plans affected by the pandemic this year.

Alina and João are one of the many couples who have had their wedding plans affected by the pandemic this year. They previously planned to have their intimate and non-traditional wedding in May 2020, however due to the COVID-19 pandemic, they decided to have a civil wedding, followed by a wedding photo shoot later on and then have their wedding once the situation improved.

This bride and groom had the most beautiful day having their photo shoot in Òbidos, the place where they started talking about getting married! What a special location it was for them!

The location: Òbidos, an intimate medieval town with a lot of history

For their photo shoot, Alina and João chose the small medieval town of Òbidos in the west of Portugal.

The town provided an intimate and romantic setting for their wedding photos, which was exactly what the couple was after!

The bride’s dress

For the photo shoot, Alina chose a long-sleeved bohemian style white dress with a slit up the side from Vesna Wedding. The dress went perfectly with the intimate and romantic nature of both the town and Alina and João’s wedding photo shoot!

Alina decided to pair her dress with some Michael Kors white strap high heeled shoes!

In addition to this, the bride chose a beautiful contrasting bouquet, made up of light pink, yellow and dark red flowers combined with a range of different types of leaves. It was a most beautiful and stylish flower bouquet created by Pequeno Jardim!

The bride’s style was natural and matched the environment

Alina, the bride, decided on a twisted ponytail and chose brown eyeshadow and mascara to create a light natural look to match the style of her dress and the photo shoot. Her hair and makeup were done by Xenia Muax and to complement her look, Alina added a simple yet sparkly hairpiece to hold her ponytail in place.

The bride also wore beautiful earrings to match her hairpiece and style by Miuz.

Her engagement ring, from Tous, was a true protagonist in their photo shoot, a symbol of their promise to each other and their love.

The groom matched the bride with his stylish natural look

João, the groom, was just as stylish in braces and a long-sleeved white shirt! His shirt was from Massimo Dutti which he paired with Venâncio Tailor trousers!
