About Ana and David

Ana and David met each other in Campo de Santana on the first day of University. They both had 18 years old. They became friends and then felt in love. “We started over coffee, we started out as friends. It’s funny how from simple things, the best things begin”.

David comes from Luxembourg, addicted to Manga (anime), soccer and all the games, in general. Ana comes from Caranguejeira, girl scout always playing by the rules! After spending some time together, they became even more geeks (or David turned Ana into a geek…), living in their own world. They are addicted to travel, and together they count already 23 countries in the 5365 days of their relationship.


The Wedding

Ana and David married on May 2021 on the beautiful and elegant Hotel Rio do Prado, in Óbidos, Portugal. They told us that the easiest thing for them in all the wedding arrangements was to choose the venue. it was love at first sight.

They both arrived at the venue the day before with their parents, groomsmen and bridesmaids, although they confessed that they deserved a longer stay at the venue in that marvelous master suite.

The religious ceremony took place in Óbidos, in Igreja Santa Maria. They loved the surroundings of this church and its magical touch.

The celebrator met with the couple a few times by Zoom meetings, and soon he became and accomplice and adviser in all of the Wedding arrangements.

During the celebration, he got the couple emotional, surprising everyone by reading excerpts of original love letters from Ana and David to each other.

Geeks as they call themselves, they build their wedding website with beautiful handmade illustrations made by the groom’s sister, and all the info regarding the big day.

The most challenging aspect of all of the arrangements (despite previous cancellation because of the pandemic, of course), was to came up with a theme for the wedding…so…they decided not to a main theme, but including several elements they they loved related to tv series, books, movies, etc.

A funny story

Ana and David ordered the ring carrier from the UK post Brexit, so it is still somewhere in Customs waiting for clearance… The wood box that was actually used, was bought at the last minute.
