“We met 15 years ago in Portugal when we were in high school and started dating shortly after we met. We had a really romantic first kiss at the beach! We then moved to Macao in China where we have been living now for around 7 years. Getting married was always in our plans and Fernando’s proposal, although very simple, was the culmination of almost 14 happy years together.

We wanted to have a small wedding with our family and closest friends. Since we live in China and our family is from Portugal, we wanted to get married somewhere in between. Also, since our first kiss was at the beach, so a beach-wedding was a priority. Santorini was the best solution for what we had envisioned for our big day. Beach casual was our goal for the style and theme of the day. The only things that worried us were trying to get all the guests in one place at the same time, and whether the weather would play ball (which it did in the end!) The best decision we made overall was to hire Maria our wedding planner as it made everything so much easier.”
