If you are looking for an original engagement session inspiration, look no further. Today’s post is bringing a lovely romantic engagement session that is everything but ordinary.
Fernanda is Brazilian and Richard is British, both live in London. They met when Fernanda was living abroad and, just like myself here, she found love overseas and never more went back home.
Fernanda and Richard love traveling to Italy when possible and in one of their trips, they visit Puglia for a weekend and fell so in love with the simplicity and the white washed walls of the region, that they decided to get married there next year.
To help them with their Destination Wedding, they found Anna (In The Mood For Love), who is also based in London. For their engagement session, they decided to fly the talented photographer Francesco Gravina, from Italy to meet them in a small corner of Puglia, a bistro in London called Pulia, where you literally feel transported to Puglia.
“We spent the whole afternoon at this lovely bistro, where Fernanda and Richard had a cooking lesson with the manager Gianni and his team, and cooked orecchiette – a typical pasta from Puglia (shape of an ear). For the evening, a change of dress for Fernanda and a romantic walk along the river Thames. The evening ended with a delicious dinner back in the bistro.”
I’m seriously in love with the photos and the whole idea. But hold your breath, the next portraits are to die for:
I can’t wait for the wedding pictures next year. Wish Fernanda and Richard a happy planing and a lifetime of happiness.
