“Kristian and I have been regular visitors to Quinta do Lago in the Algarve with our families since we were children, both unaware that we were in the same place at the same time. We met during the summer in Portugal when we were 18 and got engaged 10 years later. Both of us loved the idea of getting married in the place that is very close to our hearts and what we consider our second home.
We celebrated our marriage on 6th June 2015 in the Algarve, Portugal. Our ceremony was in the Cathedral in Faro followed by an amazing reception in Casa Do Lago, a fabulous venue located on the lake in Quinta Do Lago making for a spectacular setting.
As our photographer we used the professional services of Fotografamos (www.fotografamos.com). Pedro & Marina who are a husband and wife team. Pedro & Marina spend time getting to know you as a couple and capture your wedding in such a way that when you look back at the pictures you can feel the emotions of how we both felt at that moment in time, special memories of what will be a very important and special day in our lives, to be treasured forever.
Twelve months before the wedding my Mum & I started our dress hunting, an experience that I will never forget. On our arrival in Myrtle Ivory, we both sensed a difference in this store, the dresses were not only beautiful but had quality and style, in my opinion in a different category.
Marina dealt with us in a very professional yet personal manner, her expertise in this area was of great help in eventually choosing the dress of my dreams, having tried on a number of dresses all beautiful in their own right, it was when I saw the‘Lissome’ by Ines Di Santo, both my Mum, Marina and I knew it was “the one”. I fell in love with it instantly, there was no doubt in my mind when I said ‘’Yes to the Dress’’, this dress completed what turned out to be our Fairytale Wedding.
Marina, you are without doubt a professional at what you do. You not only spent the time to get to know me as a person but your attention to detail and advice was amazing and you made the whole experience so wonderful for me. I enjoyed every moment, mindful of the number of brides you look after, you always made me feel special like my dress was the most important to you.
Thank you and the wonderful team at Myrtle Ivory for making my dream wedding dress a reality.
Lots of Love,
