Wedding at Quinta da Hera in Covilhã

I’m not a big fan of highways. They may be quicker, but for me, one hour of freeway time seems to me always endless and sleepy. But it’s all psychological and my pleasure to travel ends up solving the subject.

This is about the way to Fundão. I was there to photograph the wedding of Paula and Victor in the beautiful village of Fundão, in the church of the blue ceiling. I follow the A23 that, after Abrantes looks more like one of those roads that lead us to nowhere, because of that so mysterious, doing many kilometers without seeing cities and traveling the high mountains until, after the tunnel of Gardunha, we enter a valley full of beautiful cherry trees and warm people. After this road I found one of these pathways that made me change, a little, my opinion.

This is how I started the wedding day between people accustomed to the hardness of the mountains and the friendliness of the conviviality. Victor,  from Lisbon in the cold lands was fortunate in a mild and pleasant day. Paula, on homeland with her family, was radiant. One of the good things about wedding photographers is to spend the day between different people and that, from land to land and despite the differences in habits, always have in common the joy of the day that gives them, always, the right environment for their photographs.

Paula and Victor in the Matriz Church of Fundão were perfect. Not only by the joy of being there, finally, celebrating their marriage as sharing with their owns. After the ceremony we leave for the beautiful Quinta da Hera in Covilhã that allowed me the photos with the couple that we can see below. It’s one of the perfect places for the wedding photographer.

Arriving at the end of the wedding day, glad to have had all these good reasons to those photos, there I went for a rest of night sleep and soon to come back, by the serpent on the high of the mountains and with a magnificent morning light, to home.

Paula and Victor, be happy.
