Well despite taking 4 Ryan Air flights to get there and back I must say it was so worth it for this gem of a wedding. I had not met Bri or Michael until the morning of the wedding and I pretty much knew straight away it was going to be a great day and I was not disappointed. I did have one small doubt however when the chocolate croissant strayed to close to the Vera Wang dress and resulted in what could have been a real bridezilla moment, but no, cool, calm and collected all was good, phew………

Bri and Michael both live in Toronto and the connection with Porto is with Michael who was born in the Azores so Oporto seemed like a logical place. After the preparation with the breathtaking views and misbehaving croissant it was off to a local church with the most amazing views over the river to the port houses and a really emotional ceremony. The real beauty of intimate destination weddings is that I do generally get a little more time with the couple and Bri and Michael were really keen to wander the streets of Oporto for a while and grab some creative portraits.

After a tour of Taylors Fladgate everyone enjoyed the spectacular views followed by some emotive speeches and a wonderful wedding dinner. A huge thanks to you both it was a real privilege to share this day with you and meet some of your family and friends. Just a few of my favourites.
