Italian English Love Story Wedding
Luca and Philippa had their very own Italian English Love Story Wedding that began in Venice four years ago. They are both keen rowers and met while there in a competition.
When we met them for their pre wedding shoot they told us how they first met. Evidently Luca had gone over to Philippa to offer her some rowing advice. Philippa found out later that Luca had only been rowing for a matter of months while she had years of experience. It would seem that everything went well though as even she didn’t need his rowing tips they hit it off and despite living in different countries their romance flourished. We enjoyed chatting to them both along with Mum and their gorgeous little boy Raffie, in a lovely coffee shop in Seaham and hearing about how their wedding planning had all come together in such a short time. Despite the chilly day, we loved the images of Philippa & Luca on the beach, we could see how well they connected
They chosen to get married at Lanchester Church it was very close to the families hearts, especially this was where the family had held Philippa’s father funeral service only a few months earlier. So we always knew that this was going to be a very emotional day but filled with lots of love. As you will be able to see from the photos there were definitely lots of laughs and tears. Luca managed to floor everyone with a slideshow of images showing lots of happy moments of the two of them with there families whilst they were growing up. There wasn’t a dry eye in the room!
