Set in Albufeira, in Portugal’s amazing Algarve – Ayesha and Hussien’s wedding at the 5 star Pine Cliffs Hotel was always going to be special.
The hotel itself, with it’s cliff-top location, overlooks Portugal’s Praia da Falésia beach. The hotel boasts 11 restaurants plus many bars, private swimming pools and more. However, on the 7th October last year, it was arguably Ayesha and Hussien’s wedding that was the crowning jewel of this hotel. The whole day from start to finish was a spectacular celebration for these two wonderful young people’s love for each other.
From the personal handwritten cards exchanged in the morning, to the dancing back down the isle after the ceremony, finishing with one of the best dance floors I have ever experienced to date at any wedding, the day was a joy from start to finish.
Portugal provided some amazing weather late in October (pushing 30 degrees!) resulting in a delightful outdoor ceremony, with a gentle breeze periodically offering a welcome break from the heat.
This was definitely one of my favourite destination weddings to photograph of all time and it was an absolute pleasure to have been invited out to capture Ayesha and Hussien’s big day.
