When it comes to love, there is nothing more refreshing than a couple so madly infatuated with each other that the energy and liveliness just emanates from their very beings. With radiant photographs by The Framers, this small, yet lively wedding in Lisbon, Portugal is making us swoon over the intimacy and wish we were there to join in on the laughs as Burcin and Arif tied the knot.
This lovely couple traveled to Portugal to say I do all the way from Turkey. When photographer The Framers asked them why came the distance, Burcin and Arif ‘s response was “Why not? It seemed like a good reason to visit the country!” The people behind the cameras said they found their answer so refreshing and relaxed and “we eventually discovered that it was a perfect reflection of these bride and groom personalities.”
We absolutely adore a simple, relaxed, and casual wedding just as much as the next person, but we can’t get over how this wedding is all of those things and more! The bride is just dazzling with her headpiece and chic summer dress, and the handsome groom’s attire compliments her so well.
Taking place at the Turkish Embassy in Lisbon, rings and vows were exchanged with just a few family members and close friends at their side. The Framers say that “after the ceremony and some Turkish traditions were met, there was still room for a small distribution of traditional Portuguese pastéis de nata, which were a hit among all of those present!”
Among the medieval alleys, town squares, churches, and whitewashed buildings of Alfama, Burcin and Arif — along with their two close friends — posed the day away. As a quarter of Lisbon known for its charm, there couldn’t have been a better place for this fun-loving couple to showcase their love. The photographer remembers that what made this afternoon memorable was the friendliness of locals — “at every step we took, locals insisted on greeting the bride and groom and wish them all the best!”
