This sweet, little gem, hails all the way from Portugal, courtesy of Five Photography. A wildlife park, formerly grounds owned by the royal family, set the scene for intimate and romantic, forest wedding inspiration. In keeping with the woodland setting, the elegant tablescape was creatively composed of a wide range of simple, natural elements. A wedding cake by Sweets of Lala (almost too pretty to eat!) also perfectly complimented the rich, organic motif, along with stunning paper goods by Hoje é Especial. With a profusion of adorable details from deer figurines to honey and pollen favours, prepare yourselves to be utterly charmed by this lovely ode to Nature!
From Five Photography: When we think of an enchanted forest, we imagine a green place with deer, rabbits, foxes, wild boar and many other beautiful animals. We are driven by the idea that such magical places only exist in an imaginary fantasy world but fortunately, in Portugal, there are still places where wildlife and nature still prevail.
Once a hunting ground and pleasurable place of the Portuguese Royal Family, the Tapada Nacional de Mafra is nowadays a unique and special place for being in contact with nature and for leisure activities.
It is definitely an enchanted place where we can see hundreds of deer especially during autumn and because of all the magic and serenity that this place emanates it is also a perfect place to witness beautiful love stories.
This stylized love session which we presented here, was specifically conceived in order to show you the beauty and charm of Tapada Nacional de Mafra. Even the deer came to get a sneak peek of our inspirational session…
