If the dull days are getting you down, we have a wedding film to share with you today, that might be just the thing to lift your spirits.

Begüm & Riccardo are a gorgeous couple, from Turkey and Portugal respectively, who met in Germany and tied the knot by the sea on the scenic Algarve coast in the south of Portugal. Their day was romantic, beautiful, and whole lot of fun.

And we're so glad their chose filmmakers, Vanessa & Ivo to capture their day in their signature candid, atmospheric and intimate style.


Scroll down to hit play on this dreamy wedding film (and to check out Begüm's stunning Pronovias gown) but first up, let's hear more about this special day from Vanessa & Ivo, who travelled from their home in the north of Portugal to be there…

From the Filmmakers

Distance is just a word when love is everything. From Aveiro to Algarve there are 450 km.

Ricardo and Begüm live in Germany, in the very romantic town of Heidelberg, where they met. She comes from Istanbul in Turkey, and he comes from Viseu in Portugal, and they chose to get married this year in Algarve.

The ceremony happened in the Tabu Gardens of the Sheraton Hotel and the party went to the Beach Club right in the middle of the Falésia beach.

It was a dream wedding with a dinner under the stars and the scent of flowers and sea. Each one of us travelled a lot of kilometers for a dreamy wedding video and it was totally worth it.

Isn't it beautiful? They look so happy. I was in the Algarve when I was a child but it looks so much more gorgeous than I remember, I may have to go back!

Thanks so much to Vanessa & Ivo and the wonderful Ricardo and Begüm for sharing their intimate beach wedding film with us.
