A wedding amidst a global pandemic. “Big time small ” is the story of Sara and Guilherme, a Estufa Real wedding in times of Covid.
Many couples who were getting married in 2020 had to go through the tough decision process of postponing their wedding. The amount of government guidelines changed as the months progressed, and whilst some eloped or postponed, others readjusted and adapted to the new reality: a small wedding. It was all about keeping the balance between getting married and keeping everyone safe.
When Sara and Guilherme decided to move on with their set date, they called me and immediately we talked about everything that was going to happen. It was crucial for them to live that day in the most normal way possible, upholding all the safety measures necessary. That meant a close articulation between all the vendors, guests and themselves.
One of the main decisions – as weddings in October were limited to 50 guests – meant reducing the guest list. Their wedding had only 20 guests and they were mainly close family members. Both the ceremony and dinner party happened in airy spaces and, despite all necessary adjustments regarding social distancing and desinfection, it was a beautiful day.
Estufa Real is a wedding venue wrapped up in meticulously cared gardens, with an amazing overview of the Tejo river and Lisbon. The chosen decoration was elegant and the earthy tones were alusive of autumn. If I had to describe it in one word, I would say “warm”.
Take a look and let me know if you feel the same.
