They stopped in front of the castle, where they would elope, and looked at one another A single moment had led them to this place, a moment that neither one of them thought could change their life so profoundly. But it had. They were here. And this is what happened…
Boasting vast interior spaces that spill out onto beautiful patios. A maze of ruins overwhelming the exterior spaces, and the terracotta textured walls creating a perfect balance of such a magnificent building being located in a natural setting. The open gardens that surround the monastery, have their own charm and can be enjoyed peacefully during the hot summer days or even at night, under a thick ceiling of stars, as many stargazing activities take place at this very location.

It is a dream to work with clients who trust in your work but even more of a dream when they are completely aligned with your philosophy and live by it. Elin and Oliver are a couple who work hard and live life to the fullest with strong beliefs of living in the present moment, constantly showing gratitude and giving back whenever possible. A clear example of this is that their whole wedding gift was donated to WWF (world wildlife fund for nature) and Doctors Without Borders and their place of work (Google), matched the amount.
This wedding is overwhelmingly beautiful, so sit back and enjoy the ride.
