Step into the magical love story of Alina and George, a young and vibrant couple living in the heart of England. With Alina hailing from Indian origins and George proudly embracing his Italian heritage, they are the perfect blend of cultures, and their love story is as captivating as it gets.

Couple's Story

It all began six years ago at a lively party in London, where fate brought them together, and they've been inseparable ever since. A few years back, they embarked on a romantic getaway to Italy, where George explored his roots, and together, they were captivated by the beauty of the northern lakes. Among them, Lake Como stood out with its stunning colours, elegant surroundings, and breathtaking mountain views.

Enamoured by the allure of Lake Como, Alina and George decided to declare their love in a truly special way. They chose the charming Hotel Villa Cipressi as the backdrop for their elopement, wanting to share an intimate and unforgettable experience while capturing every cherished moment through a unique photo shoot.

Their wedding day was a whirlwind of emotions, filled with smiles, laughter, and joyful tears. They may not have been able to have their dreamy boat tour due to the weather, but that didn't dampen their spirits. In fact, it only made their bond stronger as they embraced the unpredictability with grace and love. Alina and George share a deep and authentic love, a love that cherishes life and beauty. They have plans to return in the future, surrounded by their friends and family, to renew their vows and finally set sail on that dream boat ride they imagined.
