Destination wedding St barts
In a life of wedding photographer every reportage is a discovery! The discovery of places, the wonder in front of the dress of the bride, and especially the human encounters, joyful and warm. And sometimes there is a touch of magic in addition ….

So I will never forget those married. Those bride and groom who said yes to 7000 kilometers from home, so to say at the other end of the world. They welcomed me as if we had always known each other. At home I felt at home, a cocoon sweet and full of love.

The place

As I said, a wedding on the other side of the world, nestled in the middle of the “Caribbean” as they say. Where the price of grated carrots reaches almost that of foie gras (good I exaggerate a little but not that much!). Where mosquitoes are always hungry. Where drinking water is a rare commodity and so precious that even children do not jump into the pools to avoid wasting it.

A volcanic island, beautiful from dawn to dusk, with its many beaches, like that of Colombier that deserves. Its natural swimming pools. His goats, his turtles, his butterflies. Its flowers, smells, the smell of the flowers of Frangipani will remain engraved in my memory. Its roads intertwined in the mountain. Its unreal airport. Its white cemeteries. Fantastic landscapes. A damp, sometimes stifling heat. Especially unmatched human warmth. St-Barthélemy, St-Barth for the intimate, a place finally far away from the clichés you can see in magazines if you take the trouble to discover it.

Their Story

Usually I ask the bride and groom to write me a few lines about their meeting, this time I was lucky enough to have time to listen.

Ombeline, my beautiful bride from the heart of the metropolis! You have traveled miles to satisfy your passion. I regret not having had time to listen to you more at length but your melodies are just like you filled with love and echo in the heart. Your violin is an extension of you, it is your life, it is your soul … It rhythm your days, it is never very far. He drove you to St. Barth to teach your art, but above all he drove you on a little road, that of love, the one where Cedric was waiting for you, thumb up. He already said “I like” without knowing it. You opened the door of your car to her and almost immediately your heart. How to resist a man who every day offers you flowers, who always sees the glass half full and looks like Johnny Clegg;)

The wedding ceremony

I was taken to the Anglican church of Gustavia by a procession of Moke, a very noticed arrival and colorful (oops I made the choice to publish this photo report of wedding in black and white, Not see the color unless you have the chance to know the bride and groom).

A ceremony punctuated by music, of course, but also by emotion and beautifully orchestrated by a priest … I will say to define it “amazing” for many reasons … freshly arrived on the eve of Paris to celebrate your union in This church he knows very well.

A church exit under a shower of petals and a symbolic gesture of victory …

The reception

Far from a “French” wedding! The cocktail took place in the garden of the church and the reception on the beach of Toiny. Here you can enjoy white pudding of seafood, St-Barth cake, St-Barth cake and planter! Ah the planter …

The zouk makes the bodies shudder, the atmosphere is there! Friends, family … A very festive moment.
