When Steph and Tim decided on a destination wedding in Madeira Island (a Portuguese archipelago situated in the north Atlantic Ocean, southwest of Portugal, and a true paradise) they knew it was going to be a weekend to remember... and boy were they right! The ceremony and reception was at the incredible Hotel Belmond Reid's Palace, and the whole weekend was planned by a very dear friend of the bride and a wedding expert, Mabel from Stories by Mabel. Enjoy!

Last week we shared the One to One session we planned for Adriana Morais... we have so many images that we thought it would be great to do a post with some black and whites! Hope you guys love them as much as we do!
One to One by Brancoprata
For the last year and a half we've been offering mentoring sessions to wedding creatives who are looking for a fresh approach to their work, or a natural evolution of their business, but also for those looking for a new career in the wedding business.
Each session is designed and prepared to adapt to the needs and expectations of the artist, so that in the end of the day, they can feel that the brand has been strengthened and its artistic essence revealed more clearly.
Last year, Adriana Morais spent the day in Porto, for a One to One session with us! We've knowned Adriana for quite some time now, but it was the first time we were able to share our thoughts on numerous subjects, especially when it comes to editorial work!
Sometimes during One to One sessions we are so caught up in the moment with our attendees that we almost don't have time to shoot, which is perfectly fine for us, since the point of these One to One sessions is to make sure the attendees have time to shoot, not us! However with Adriana, we had time to snap a few photos of the scene we planned for her.

Inspired Gatherings V
Last Winter we designed this simple table, inspired by organic pieces and ikebana, a disciplined art form in which nature and humanity are brought together. Our idea was to emphasize other areas of the plant, such as its stems and leaves, and of course play with the shape, line, and form of the centerpiece.
