Photographers Matt and Lena tell us: “Last year Nikki and Jon packed it all up and moved to Portugal! They set up their own business here and got married at a beautiful country house in the hills of Loule in the Algarve. They are both cat people- they have bunches of them! Although they were not at the actual wedding, they were pretty involved in the prep and grooming. For the wedding, they wanted everything to be in keeping with the simple and rustic charm of the venue. All white, from the flowers to the table clothes. With rose gold and copper tones and green from the surroundings and the little displays of succulents. Nikki wore a beautiful dress from Stella York, an Australian designer. It was tailored and customised by a small dress tailors in Faro, Portugal. The back of it was removed and little details added. The ceremony was held outside, in the court yard of the main house at Os Agostos. It’s a converted barn and olive press house surrounded by forest in the Loule mountains. A string quartet played Metallicas ‘Nothing Else Matters’ as the brides entrance song! Their wedding was an amazing party. They had some of their favourite local musicians come to play as well, having some brilliant talent in the family, Nikki’s cousin preformed a few songs. For the evening, their friends- who also happen to be in a band, played to the crowd. There was an eclectic mix of music throughout the day, which was so awesome!”
