Beach Wedding in Italy – Cristina and Luca

“Oh think twice, it’s another day in paradise for you and me …

(Phil Collins)

Emilia Romagna Wedding

Thanks to Cristina and Luca for choosing me as the photographer of their beach wedding in Italy at Locanda delle Dune in Bellaria.

The couple, both born and raised in the Emilia Romagna region, choose the Church of San Fortunato, in Covignano, Rimini area, as a perfect wedding venue. The nice Don Mirko Vandi celebrated the mass. This ancient abbey, has been renovated over the centuries but still preserves the splendid fifteenth-century façade and, in the inside, some important paintings such as “The Adoration of the Magi” by Vasari. The famous artist was hosted for some time in the nearby Benedictine convent.

Cristina was amazing in her wedding dress, created especially for her by Atelier Emè of San Marino. Wedding shoes were a pair of marvelous Jimmy Choo shoes, Lance model, that she bought in Rome for this special occasion! Luca bought his wedding suit and shoes at the Memphis boutique in Rimini.

Cristina’s hairstyle was a creation of Jenny and  Andrea Hairdressers while her friend Valentina Macellari, part of the team, took special care of her makeup.

Rosanna Pelliccioni, wedding planner and floral designer, arranged every single detail of this beautiful wedding. Cristina could also rely on two wonderful 9 and 11-year-old bridesmaids who escorted her sweetly to the altar!

After the ceremony, friends and relatives were welcomed to the delightful Locanda delle Dune, in Bellaria.

This historic house recently renovated, shows a very classy interior with the additional benefit of lying close to the seashore, so the couple could make one of their dreams come true, that is enjoying a romantic beach wedding!

Bride and groom, after the ceremony, arrived by boat directly from the Rimini harbor, while their guests were waiting for them sipping a cocktail and wearing flip-flops on the beach, chilling with some great music of their friend and DJ Andrea Nicoletti!

What can I add more? Everything was outstanding … such as the “grand finale” with some Chinese lanterns launched late at night to shine over the sea, wishing the couple all the best and that the light of their love will fly, similarly, far away!

Thanks again to Cristina and Luca for choosing me as their wedding photographer at  Locanda delle Dune and for their enthusiasm to be remembered in my blog with this beautiful beach wedding in Italy.
