Madeira Island always had a big connection with British families almost since the time the Portuguese started settling on the island. One of those connections was established through Madeira Wine, which was turned into a premium wine by British families that took residence on the island. One of those families were the Blandy’s. This is the story of one of the family’s weddings that I had the pleasure to photograph. Sophia and John contacted me back in 2019, almost a year before Covid, and their wedding had to be postponed several times during the pandemic. They persevered, their relation got even stronger and eventually got married a couple of weeks ago in a sunny June day in Madeira Island. These are some of their photos.
