Primarily we are London Wedding Photographers but we are frequently lucky enough to shoot weddings further afield which is always an adventure. This was certainly the case with Abi and Kenny’s stunning Regent Porto Montenegro Wedding. The Regent Porto in Montenegro is a five star luxury hotel, imagine a hotel nestled on the palm-fringed shores along the Adriatic coast with beautiful clear blue sea and dotted with luxury yachts. In fact you don’t have to imagine just take a look at these images. Shooting wedding photography at the Regent Porto really is a dream booking.
We met Abi and Kenny back when we did their pre wedding shoot in Paris (these two are well travelled) so it was lovely to see them again. If you get 5 minutes, take a look at the images from the Pre-Wedding Shoot here, trust me, its another cooker! We shot both the photographs and the video for their wedding which was lovely as it really gives a full view of their amazing day. To see the film, click here!
Now you’d think that at a luxury wedding at a five star hotel in Montenegro nothing could go wrong….. Turns out in can! Whilst the Regent Porto had everything in place the weather didn’t behave. Lightning struck the fueling system at Stanstead airport causing flights to be cancelled and a few guests along with the DJ and make-up artist not make it. We were so impressed with how un-phased Abi and Kenny were with this setback. They stayed focus and took it in their stride. (Not a tear, tantrum or hissy fit in sight!). Both Mick and I would have been having kittens if this was us!
Added to this the ceremony was due to start at 4pm however due to a heavy downpour of rain at 3pm the wedding was put back an hour. Again this change was met without drama (surely evidence that these two are in it for the long haul.) Putting the ceremony back an hour was a sensible move as the sun did eventually come through.
Abi looked absolutely stunning as did her bridal party. Kenny looked resplendent in a stunning jacket with his grooms’ party in petrol blue suits. This super stylist wedding party set against the jetsetters backdrop of Montenegro Port looked like the very essence of glamour. This was a seriously stylish wedding.
The ceremony was held on the pier underneath the most exquisite flower arch followed by an elegant meal in the main hotel. Speeches were emotional and very well received before everybody moved onto the Yacht Club for the first dance and party.
The late sunshine turned into a beautiful sunset and we made the best of the light and got some beautiful and romantic sunset portraits shots of Abi and Kenny.
We love it when a wedding surprises us with something ingenious and at Abi and Kenny’s it was the dancefloor erected over the pool. We have no doubt that the DJ that couldn’t make it was very talented. But honestly, the way these guys partied more than made up for it!
A stunning, luxurious and fun filled wedding full of love and laughter for this wonderful pair. Congratulations to Abi and Kenny for getting married and creating such an amazing day for yourselves, your family and your friends to remember. It was an honour to tell the story of your day.
Regent Porto Montenegro Wedding Photography is quite simply AWESOME!
