An emotional same sex wedding in the Algarve.
DENNIE & JORGE
This was one of the most emotional weddings we have had the honor to witness since the beginning of our carreer as destination wedding photographers (also, it is one of our favorite weddings of 2016). I was fighting my tears all along and I don´t even speak Dutch (which at that moment I really regretted)! A gay wedding always have something unexplainably magical!
Dennie and Jorge (who since than became a successful wedding photographer himself) decided to rent a private villa in Algarve and spend some days together with their loved one who came mostly from the netherlands. We had the privilege of spending 3 whole days with them between friends and family and we absolutely felt like we have known each other since forever! Not just Dennie and Jorge, but their guests as well treated like we were family! When I accidentally tore my ankle during the party (ouch!!), I received the best treatment I could have received – they brought me some cold water from the pool, some flowers from the decoration and some ice and wine, to ease the pain! :) I felt like a queen!! (look for me between the few uncensored party pics!) It still hurts pretty nasty sometimes, as I couldn’t resist going back to the dance floor to photograph, but hey. When I have my camera in my hands, I tend to forget everything! :)
Best couple ever, without doubt. We loved working with them, wedding photographers in Algarve we really couldn’t have asked more. They listened to our ideas, heard our advices, it was a great collaboration. Their courage and trust in our vision has lead to the amazing award of Junebug Weddings’ Best of the Best Wedding Photos of 2016 (so good the see it’s not the only one from a gay wedding in the collection)!
*Great lights due to an unfortunate event frighteningly near the venue, a forest fire in Monchique.
