Destination Wedding in a Portuguese Castle

Tiziana and João, from Switzerland and Portugal, travelled with friends and family to Portugal’s Alentejo region to celebrate their wedding in a Portuguese castle. The couple spent their emotional and joyful day at the magnificent Pousada do Alvito, a fortified castle from the 15th century. They loved having their reception dinner surrounded by medieval walls, all captured by Luis Efigénio. Tiziana and João share their favourite moments from the day below, but first let us whisk you away to sunny Portugal.  


João: “When I saw Tizi walking down the aisle with her father and a black cat passed by, that was very emotional.” 

Tiziana: “Seeing my father with tears in his eyes for probably the first time in my life, that was something. Also during the presentation that my mom and my sister had organised there was a moment where Fränzi, my maid of honour, was facing me and had her hand on my dress and the other hand is with Adrian, her husband and our dear friend and Joao sits behind me with a  beautiful smile. It was such a nice scene because it showed how united we were. Another favourite moment was when my father and our master of ceremony Gonçalo showed up dressed up us Bugs Bunny and the Pink Panther. What a crazy family!”
