Written by    Last updated: January 24, 2014

Our friends at Yes I do! Algarve Wedding Photography have done it again! They’ve shown getting married abroad is just as romantic as we all dreamt it would be. And what a dream it is; clear blue skies, deep blue sea and golden beaches, the visual melody is enough to make anyone fall in love. Our gorgeous couple this week are Hayley and Mark, who were lucky enough to have their closest friends and family with them as they said “I do” in the glorious sun.

Bride and Groom… Hayley and Mark

Wedding date… Friday 14th June 2013

We met… Working together at a music retailer. We were friends for a couple of years so knew each other quite well.

The proposal… Mark proposed in Times Square, New York City after our perfect afternoon of shopping and going on the Sex and The City Tour.

We knew we were made for each other… From day one.

Length of engagement… 3 years 3 months

How did help in your big day? We read many articles on the site to give us inspiration and tips on planning our big day.

My dress was… Senora by Maggie Sottero. I had tried on what felt like hundreds of beautiful dresses but nothing felt quite right until this one, of course I carried on looking to make sure it was ‘the one’ and quickly realised nothing else compared to it.  It wasn’t the style that I had originally thought I would choose but it was perfect for our wedding abroad. As soon as I tried it on it had my mum in tears which made it even more special.
