Wedding at Quinta do Louredo in Évora.


Together and holding hands, the bride and groom in dance choreography, opening the wedding ball at Quinta do Louredo in Évora.

Someone that goes to Alentejo, in the summer, must know how it is. Very high temperatures, dry air, the smell of the straw of the wheat in the fields, already cut, and the buzzers singing all day under the shadow of the leaves of the trees in the Alentejo plain, not worried if someone thinks they are out of tune with all that chorus without a maestro.

That was one of the days when Sofia and Nuno got married. I like it, thirty-eight degrees temperature high, the beauty of the clear blue sky, and the silence of the plane, well, if we forget the buzzers. But that silence is suddenly broken with the preparation of the bride and groom, the last-minute needs, the neighbors wishing to see the bride, the compliments at the end of the ceremony outside the Church, and here we go to Quinta do Louredo where we party for night long. How it was? Well, the wedding photographer was there. Just see the photos. They love them and so do I.
