Intimate proposal on a boat in Portofino
On any trip to Italy, Portofino is one place you can’t miss. The Ligurian town is one of the most beautiful places on the Italian Riviera and attracts people from all over the world to experience its luxurious charm. From top Michelin restaurants and boutiques selling local artisan produce to the buzzing bar scene and picturesque harbor full of super yachts, it is the perfect place for a romantic engagement trip or honeymoon.
So it's no surprise that Chris chose Portofino to propose to girlfriend Gina while on an intimate cruise around the bay, and arranged for the special moment to be captured by Italian wedding photographer Olya Kobruseva.
"Being one of the most picturesque towns in Liguria, Portofino is the place where elegance meets glamour with a pinch of Italian charm," explains Olya. "If you're considering getting engaged here, start the day early in main square of Portofino to skip both heat and crowds. Take time strolling the pretty streets, tasting the best of the Ligurian cuisine and get out on the water on a private boat trip to enjoy the best views of the historic fishing village.
"Before dinner, sit at one of the restaurants on the main piazza and enjoy an aperitivo like Chinotto or Negroni, and you’ll truly be living la dolce vita like the locals, as you take in all that the vibrant place has to offer."
