Congratulations on your marriage.
I do have a little question though. I thought photography was a language you didn't need words for. So you could been involved in the process of picking a photographer by looking at their work, before deciding on who to hire. No need to know Portuguese for that. When you had found a photographer who's work you liked, the rest could have been handled by your now wife, like booking, etc.
So, my question is... were you really not interested at all in your wedding?
The quick answer to that is.... My misses got here a month before me and did all the organising, she viewed her work and was really happy.
