Today’s gorgeous real wedding is something of a double whammy, with both a dreamy wedding film and beautiful photos – we’re pretty nice like that!
Amanda and João are a cool Lisbon-based couple who created the most beautiful, informal, happy celebration for their wedding day.
Fusing their mutual loves of design, literature and all things celestial, their outdoor wedding in Portugal had relaxed back-yard wedding vibes, gorgeous florals, emotional speeches, string lights and lots of music.
With an atmospheric film by Happy Together Films and beautiful photography by Golden Days Wedding Photography, scroll down to gush over this cool wedding (check out the pallet seating!) and read more about it from the team behind the video camera…
From the Filmmakers
The couple Amanda and João are completely amazed by astronomy.
They started their wedding concept with a “space” theme and as the search became more concentrated, they found the most beautiful images and textures of celestial bodies.
Their stationary is literally an invitation into their galaxy. Amanda is Jupiter, represented by the surface of Europa, one of its natural satellites. And the Moon symbolizes João.
The work of Frank Kafka is also very personal for this couple. So they decided to include one of their favourite quotes, one they feel expresses the love they have for each other.
“Last night I dreamed about you. What happened in detail I can hardly remember, all I know is that we kept merging into one another. I was you, you were me. Finally you somehow caught fire.” – Franz Kafka
Wonderful colours and textures define all the decor and mood of the day. Pastel blues and golden browns blend with Earth tones on that amazing venue in the middle of the woods.
One of Amanda‘s passion in life is fashion and textile design, so she meticulously combined every decor element for the wedding.
As a buyer for the company they own in Lisbon called Nomalism, she daily sees and touches the best fabrics in the world. Amanda found the best vendors around her, assembled the coolest ideas and built an unique style for ceremony, dinner and lounge settings.
The venue is a private family house from the 16th Century which monks used to live in, in the middle of Sintra’s Mountains.
For us, as videographers, our work turned out so easy, because every setting was so cinematic and clean!
The soundtrack we’ve chosen for this wedding film is inspired by Amanda and João’s own choices for the ceremony and party, indie pop rock songs (which goes with our personal style so well!)
We work really hard to show a unique and elegant style of videography storytelling to the world. We really hope you fall in love with this wedding as much as we do.
This wedding was gorgeous and Golden Days Photography captured it so well!
