Michelle & Ricky chose a beautiful private villa in a coastal region of Portugal for their destination wedding. The city of Albufeira boasts some of the most amazing stretches of coastline in the Algarve and I was fortunate to be able to accompany their families and friends to this amazing country to capture their day. Michelle, a beauty salon owner in Suffolk, had always had a love of travelling. With a previous career spent pampering first class travellers with Virgin Atlantic whilst visiting some of the most amazing cities in the world, to enjoying far off pursuits with her fiance Ricky in more recent times, it was a given that their wedding would bask in amazing surroundings.
You may remember when I shot their central London engagement shoot in the summer, I noted just how happy they are whenever they're together. This feeling they have around each other is so infectious and really set the scene for their wedding. With friends and family travelling from the UK and Spain to be with them on this special occasion was a true testament of how much they are loved. So much so, that you could regularly hear guests commenting throughout the day that they 'wouldn't have missed this for the world'.
It was a true honour to have the opportunity to spend an amazing couple of days with an amazing bunch of people. Michelle & Ricky, I wish you everything you wish for, and more, as you start your new life together. RD
