A Taste of Decadence by Louise

Founded in 2014 in London, A Taste of Decadence by Louise specialises in the most opulent and dramatic cakes on the market in Portugal.

"I pride myself on my finely detailed work and application of designs. All of my beautiful sugar flowers are handmade and every detail is captured beautifully. I love to tailor a design to reflect your individual personality and event styling.

After your guests have admired the look of the cake, they should not be disappointed by the taste! My cakes are layered and masked in delicious Belgian chocolate ganache and perfectly shaped to allow me to keep the fondant ultra-thin and achieve my tailored corners and lines. You can combine any of my cake and filling flavours to suit your own taste and menu."

Louise has extensive experience in the 5* food industry and over the years has worked in several prestigious restaurants including London restaurants The Lanesborough Hotel, Gordon Ramsay at Claridge's and Michelin Star restaurant, Chapter One. Louise attended Westminster Kingsway College qualifying as a chef at the age of 17.

Louise's attention to detail and extensive industry experience means you can trust your cake will look even better than you imagined on your big day.

Andrew Geoghegan

Andrew Geoghegan
Award-winning British jewellery designer Andrew Geoghegan, located near Lagos has been garnering a reputation for precision-designed chic since 1998. Finally the Algarve has its own resident fine jewellery designer excelling in all disciplines and forms of jewellery creation. Wedding rings, engagement rings, cufflinks and even tiaras are all part of this highly experienced designer’s portfolio and the comprehensive bespoke process is a fitting way to realise a gold or platinum piece should you desire something totally unique. Wedding rings are very much a speciality and they can be made to fit perfectly around your existing engagement ring and the style can be echoed in the man’s wedding ring also.

To make contact with Andrew please send a message in the below form, Appointments would take place at either your residence or a local hotel. The following gives some of Andrew’s history and talks about his inspirations:

Andrew’s early endeavours were not in jewellery design, but were vital to igniting that affinity with metals and his pursuit of crafted perfection. As a young sculptor, his experiments with metal would allow him to understand the characteristics and potential of this most elemental of materials. He learned how to manipulate and direct it, and how to marry it with other precious materials. This unorthodox background is part of what makes an Andrew Geoghegan piece distinctive – there’s clear empathy for the relationships between materials, his work unifying the practice of art and manufacturing craft. Pieces take a sculptural form, and flights of imaginations could easily rescale and place them in the courtyard of the Royal Academy or the lobby of Le Louvre. Art is always part of the process and final piece – a unique ‘artful engineering’ that yields seductive beauty, endurance and distinction.

It's so important to know high quality wedding makeup will last a lifetime through your beautiful photos, so your makeup needs to look timeless, elegant and flawless.

My passion is making brides feel and look amazing! Its that simple. Nothing gives me more satisfaction than knowing the bride feels beautiful and confident walking down the aisle.

Makeup by Chloë Davies

Makeup by Chloë Davies
I am a freelance makeup artist based in the Algarve but available to travel. I was trained here in Portugal but with additional training at MAC and Plouise Academy. Specialising in Bridal, Asian Bridal, Full Glam and Photo/Film Makeup. I work with the highest quality brands to ensure a flawless look that lasts all day/night and looks perfect on and off camera.

It is extremely important that you feel comfortable on your big day as well as looking beautiful so I will always pay full attention to my clients vision to create a look that you are 100% happy with whether that be completely natural or a full transformation!

Trials (if required) are important if you are unsure or want to try out a couple of different looks it allows both us to get a clear picture of what is needed and gives a bride the opportunity to make sure the makeup artist is the right one for you. It also means one less thing to worry about on the day so it can run smoothly. I have had lots of requests for airbrush makeup, while it is something I may consider for next year in my honest opinion with the right products and application methods for duration purposes it's really not going to last longer than good quality makeup. You can rest assured that that my makeup will not budge!

Your wedding day is a day you will always remember everything from the makeup to the ceremony , I will make you feel so relaxed and will have fun with you and your friends, well how can we not have fun it is the best day of your life.
