Matthew and Luzio exchanged vows in a gorgeous wedding at Coombe Abbey

Matthew and Luzio met on a beach in Rio de Janeiro. “Matthew was advising someone about his allergies, but the person didn’t speak English,” says Luzio. “I stepped in to translate, and we got talking. We had our first date later that evening and were instantly attracted to each other.”

Luzio was in for a surprise when Matthew proposed during a helicopter tour. “We flew around Rio de Janeiro and then hovered in front of Christ the Redeemer,” shares Luzio. “I was looking at the statue when Matthew called my name. I turned around, and he was holding the ring and asked me to marry him. We had champagne in the sky as we continued our flight. There was a photographer, but I was told he was there taking pictures of the flight for his website, but it turns out he was really there to capture our engagement. It was a truly unforgettable moment.”
