Ivet and Elliot’s chic destination wedding with the loveliest green accents, images by Martin Dabek Photography

Elliot and Ivet live in Scotland, have friends and family all around the world, and chose to be married in January. They had the most beautiful sunshine for their Algarve wedding – it’s a stunning destination and I’m totally in love with the scenery and dramatic portrait shots from their day.

Martin is a family friend, who had previously done our friends and families weddings in the past.

Martin’s professional and very kind attitude really made us feel comfortable. He has a way of bringing fresh ideas into something you yourself already had in mind. Because of this Martin Dabek has a very personal and human touch surrounding the work that he does and the shots he takes.

We were amazed and extremely happy. We first saw our photos when Martin sent us a video montage of the highlights of the wedding with a beautiful backing track. They were even better than we had imagined!
