Wedding in Sintra at Quinta dos Alfinetes

Sitting at the church of S. Pedro de Penaferrim altar, the bride and groom look each other photographed by the wedding photographer in Sintra.

The marriage took place in a church for which I have a special affection. Firstly by the place: Alto de São Pedro de Sintra. The triumphal entrance for those who are heading to the village of Sintra from the roundabout and climbing the Alameda of the sycamore trees is right on the left, hidden, shy but welcoming. It is the Church of St. Peter of Penaferrim. I always made great pictures there.

Ana and Carlos chose her to give yes. And it was beautiful to see. They were beautiful and happy.

Ana was radiant in the wedding dress of the GRI-gri brides and splendid in Make-Up 2u Makeup, makeup that facilitated the job handing me a bride completely prepared for photography. I strongly advise this. It is Susana Leal and is a delight of a person and a great professional.

From there we cross Sintra and descend to the very well-situated Quinta dos Alfinetes. With a very good atmosphere for conviviality and excellent scenery for the photographs taking the entire hillside of the Serra of Sintra overlooking the Pena Palace.

The bride and groom enjoyed themselves with joy and I, as a service wedding photographer, took the last straw.
