Wedding at Hotel Lusitania in Guarda

After that beautiful afternoon in the streets of the city of Guarda and a night of rest, the morning was shining, but smelling some night rain, we started our day with Ana with hair and make-up and, after, a visit to Francisco’s house.

Back, right in the center of the Guarda, the home of Ana’s parents where the bride was dressing for that intense day, emotional and cheerful. All at the same time and in a sequence that this modest wedding photographer will arrange to go accompanying and photographing.

A few meters below is the church, chosen for the ceremony, from the heart of Ana’s family. The ceremony was beautiful and exciting as can be noticed by the photos. One of my main attentions, while I cover a wedding ceremony, is to be attentive to the relationship of the couple over time and how the state of mind evolves through the ceremony.

Once husband and wife went to the Hotel Lusitania in Guarda where a beautiful well-decorated dining room awaited us. After the rain that did not come, after all, in the gardens of the hotel, the wedding photographer did the session with Ana and Francisco and the night was a party, celebration, and great conviviality between the family and friends of this adorable couple.
