Daniel and Adriana's wedding was spectacular, yet it was never over the top or dressy. It somehow managed to harness two cultures perfectly, and ride them along the Brazilian sun coast to a carnival by the beach.
The wedding was in a tiny white and blue church, packed to the rafters, people hanging in the doors and windows, just trying to get a glimpse. The live soundtrack to the day was provided by a great composer and accordion player Dave Thomas, whose music is featured in our film. (Watch this space for a special feature on him soon!)
As if that wasn't enough, at some point in the night, an incredible Brazilian live band started to play and Samba dancers appeared in a swirl of luminous colors and shining beads, encouraging even the tamest of spectators to do a little limbo.
To top it all off, best man, Michael, introduced his "piece de resistance", a video message from a guest who unfortunately could not be at the wedding. It was none other, than the 'Doggfather' himself, Mr. Snoop D.O double G, personally telling the happy couple:
"From big Snoop Dogg, congratulations on your wedding. Stay down, stay with each other. Two lovers together forever. Believe dat".
Believe that indeed! Adriana looked simply stunning in her hand made Brazilian lace dress, while Daniel looked dapper in his Bespoke suit. As the wedding progressed and dusk settled, the melting pot of cultures partied by the beach like they had know each other for years while a whole host of dj's including Marina Gasolina kept everybody moving into the wee hours. This was seriously one of the most memorable weddings I have ever seen in one of the most beautiful settings on earth.
So with out further hesitation..... Lets go to the Beach!
And of course, we can not forget the beautiful film that Nick made... if the photos didn't give you an idea of how amazing the wedding was, the film absolutely will!
Thank you to Adriana and Daniel for letting us be a part of their wedding. We had such an incredible trip, and I think we have both decided that we want to retire in Buzios...
