Vanessa Martins and Marco Costa: the wedding we'll never forget


It was in July that we had the first contact with Vanessa Martins and Marco Costa, a couple well knowed to the portuguese public eye. We couldn’t be more happy with this approach because we saw in this couple a tremendous wish to seal their love in a modern wedding sorrounded by their loved ones.

Since early on, Vanessa and Marco told us they wanted something modern yet simple, so we chose the black and white as the main colours of the big wedding that was going to take place in November. It suited perfectly with the couple’s personality and gave that touch of elegance that the bride wanted so much.

The space chosen for the big day was the Boutique Hotel Senhora da Guia in Cascais. A small 5 star hotel with an intimate setting and a phenomenal view of the sea, it had everything to go with our theme. Everything matched with what we wanted to create for the wedding and it was easy to transform the place into the couple’s dream setting.

Of course everything was easier with the help of our dear florist + decor, Happy Day Eventos. We know we can count on them to make our vision com true and still give that touch that only them can. The bride told us that her favorite flowers were the tulips, so of course we had to incorporate tulips in our flower arrangements. Mixed with white roses we created a super celestial and elegant environment.

The bride wore two dresses from Pronovias: a typically cinderella for religious ceremony and cocktail and then a more fair and modern for the dinner and party! One thing that most people do not know is that with the first dress, the bride wore a pair of tennis shoes. As the dress was so long she said that no one was going to see and so she would feel more comfortable. With the second dress, which had an opening at the front, the bride used a pair of high heels - also from Pronovias - that looked like they came out of a fairy tale. We accompanied the bride to all the fittings and we couldnt have been happier when we saw her all arranged and ready to say "yes"!

Since we wanted to excel at difference, the idea of ​​making a giant seating plan hand written by a calligraphy artist made perfect sense! Anna came directly from Porto to turn a black wall into art. This wall beyond its purpose as a seating plan, also served as a background for many group photographs and was even highly praised by all the guests.
