Over the past few weeks I’ve shared a few elements from Dom & Phil’s gorgeous destination wedding at Quinta de Sant’Ana in Gradil, Portugal. I shared their first look here and a small preview of the wedding, but today, I’d like to share the full blog post from their gorgeous day. It was really difficult to choose images for the blog post, because there were so many lovely moments!
I want to say an enormous thank you to Dom & Phil for letting me capture their wedding in Portugal. It really was an honour. A big thank you also to Ann and her team at Quinta de Sant’Ana for looking after me on the day and being so wonderful to work with.
Before I share my blog post, here is a small outtake from the testimonial Dom & Phil kindly sent me, which I will be adding to my website soon:
“Anneli truly went above and beyond for our destination wedding, spending time getting to know the venue before the wedding so by the time we arrived she knew all the good locations and brought us to the best spots for our first look, family portraits, etc. From getting dressed through to the first dance, we were amazed just how many small details and special moments she managed to capture during the day. She also orchestrated a flawless rose petal exit from our ceremony site that had all of our guests in awe and commenting on how fantastic and organised our photographer was. Anneli’s passion for what she does truly comes through in her photographs and we couldn’t be more thrilled with how our photos turned out!
From the bottom of our hearts thank you so much for making our day so special!
X Mr and Mrs Borg”

Dominique was such a gorgeous destination bride. Loved her Essence of Australia dress!
Quinta de Sant’Ana in all it’s glory. Even on a not so sunny day, it’s still a gorgeous Portugal destination wedding location.
Dom & Phil had their wedding ceremony in the beautiful wine cellar at Quinta de Sant’Ana. It was such an
