St Barts – Caribbean wedding destination

In a life of wedding photographer each story is a discovery! The discovery of the places, the amazement in front of the bride’s dress, and especially human, warm and happy meetings. And sometimes there is a touch of magic and more…

Then, I will never forget these married there. These newlyweds who have said yes 7000 kilometres from home, say to the other side of the world. They welcomed me as if you always knew each other. Home I felt at home, a cocoon of soft and filled with love.

Destination wedding St Barts

The place

As I said, one marriage to the other side of the world, nestled in the middle of “Caribbean” as they say. Where the price of grated carrots reached that almost that of foie gras (OK I exaggerate a little, but not that much!). There where the mosquitoes are always hungry. Where drinking water is a rare and so valuable that even children are not obvious in the pools to do not waste.

A volcanic island beautiful from dawn to dusk, with its many beaches, such as loft that is earned. Its natural pools. Its cabris, turtles, his butterflies. Its flowers, their scent, the scent of frangipani flowers will remain engraved in my memory. Interlaced in the mountain roads. Its unreal airport. Its White cemeteries. Fantastic landscapes. A humid, stifling heat sometimes. Especially a unmatched warmth. St Bartholomew, St Barts for respondents, a place finally well far from the clichés that can be seen in magazines if we take the trouble to discover.

 Destination wedding St Barts

Their history

Usually I ask the bride and groom to write a few lines about their encounter, this time I got lucky to have the time to listen.

Jonathan, my beautiful bride from in the heart of the city! You traveled in kilometers for your hobby. I wish I did not have the time to listen longer but your melodies are you filled with love and resonate in the heart. Your violin is an extension of you, it’s your life, it is your soul… He pace all day, he is never far away. He drove you there, in St-Barth to teach your art, but especially he led you on a small road, that of love, the one where Carter was waiting for you, thumbs-up. He said “Like” without knowing it. Him you opened your car door and almost immediately your heart. How to resist a man who every day offer you flowers, who always sees the glass half full and who resembles Johnny Clegg 😉

The wedding ceremony

Led to the Anglican Church of Gustavia by a procession of Moke, an arrival very noticed and colorful (oupss I made the choice to publish this photo reportage of marriage in black and white, so you will not see the color unless you have the chance to know the bride and groom).

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

An output of Church in a rain of petals and a symbolic gesture of victory…

The reception

Far away from a marriage “to the French”! The cocktail party was held in the garden of the Church and the reception on the beach of Toiny. Here we enjoy white sausage seafood Galette St Barts, St Barts cake and planter! Ah the planter…

Zouk thrilled the body, the atmosphere is here! Friends, family… A very festive.

Marriage in Saint Etienne

Jessica & Flavien are already filled of happiness with their two adorable little guys! It's a couple of accomplished athletes in handball it in rugby, in short they don't their remaining more enjoy her beautiful secular ceremony to seal their union…

 

How did you meet?

Flavien is a friend of my brothers since adolescence, we know so long but time to past and we we are discovered around 25 years and operated on the magic.

How do you fact his request?

I put upon our children. I made my request by an early morning on the belly of Isaiah "want you marry Mommy?" and on the hands of Sacha "If yes CHECK".
The awakening of Flav asked him to change Isaiah because it was dirty and I filmed. For evidence to support the case where he changes his mind… Laughing out loud

The wedding preparations:

We took the time 1 year and a half to prepare, so we were relatively zen for the establishment, we compare the providers, we meet… and this allowed us to approach this day with confidence until the day before.
The decoration was designed by my mother and myself.
Stress is mounted on Thursday when we came to implement because the task was huge.

The day J

We had great providers of the place of receipt (beautiful, ideal for an outdoor ceremony and a country wedding), a perfect photographer who was able to adapt to the guests, doing a great job and be present discretely, *: x love at first sight which allowed us to capture moments that we seen at the wedding in our enthusiasm.
Our witnesses and family gave us a ceremony unique, full of joy, love and joke, all this with good taste.
We have been wearing during the day and it was magical to be surrounded by such beautiful people.

Providers:

Creator of outfit: Nathalie ESTEVE on Caudéran (33) a friend of my mother (exceptional)
Mr costume: A store specializing in Bordeaux ALBERTO DRAICELLI
Florist: Pleasure of flower in Saint Flour
DJ: ARE EVENT on Clermont Ferrand
Hairdresser: Carole of the LOFT of Saint-flour

And side photo:

A perfect photographer who was able to adapt to the guests, doing a great job and be present in all discretion, *: x Thunderbolt which allowed us to capture moments that you could not see the marriage took in our enthusiasm.

The result

With the discovery of the photos my heart racing to relive those moments too fast past. Thank you very much for this wonderful work that will allow us to keep an unforgettable souvenir of this beautiful day.

Lyon peninsula wedding

Mary and Cedric are my pretty married early June. One of the first wedding of the season under the Sun, yes! Even if they have the chance to see more often… And Yes, they live at the edge of the sea, it seems that it is more convenient when working for the Navy. But for their wedding they returned on the native land of Mary in Lyon. As his dad is Deacon at the Basilica of Lyon 2.

It was a wedding all in white. One of the great fear of the groom… Is that one of the white will not yellow or grey? Image response…

How did you meet?

We met almost 5 years to the day before our wedding a few kilometres from Pizay.

We knew each almost nobody at the party at the time it sympathized, spoken, dance (he also made me believe that he knew dancing salsa but not at all). Finally it was a sleepless night talking about everything is nothing.

How and where Castillo made his request?

He made his request in Sanary at the edge of the beach. At the time of the dessert he had commanded a gourmet coffee and among the small cakes of the gourmet coffee there’s a kinder surprise!

After you have eaten all the chocolate and shaken in every sense the surprise to try to guess what it was I opened it. I discovered a ring. He got to his knees and asked me if I was heading to my life with him!

Preparations for the wedding:

Instead

We began by the inevitable search for the place of receipt. After having travelled the land south Burgundy and beaujolais was a favorite for Pizay and especially for external (Bower and garden a la française).

The dress

I selected 5 dresses that I liked. Once the fittings arrived I have a favorite for two of them. Finally after a loooooooongue hesitation I decided finally and with hindsight I am not at all sorry!

Wedding at Lyon Presqu'ile - Castile ALMA - wedding photographer (8)

The deco

Then my side fan of deco and small details could express themselves freely. Make parts, table decoration, the choice of honor clothing fabrics, candy bar, the tree imprint…

His side (less passionate ditzy and small vases) Cédric wished to propose for the cocktail of the specialties of each of the regions where he had lived. He therefore entrusted among other to his MOM the research and preparation of Guyanese specialties!

Plus the day J approximated more “Organization and planning of every detail” mode is activated. The last week was particularly satisfied. But fortunately we also understood in time need to know a little delegate and aid last week was awesome!

Short many things to think, reflect, organize, a bit of stress but mainly a lot of fun!

The day J

Unlike the stressful week that came to live to complete all the preparations the day J was for me super calm, relax, I was setting me mode cool, zen and whatever happens I take this is a super day!

The preparations

The town hall went in relaxed super mode. Preparations, while I thought I’d have time, everything went to cool with a lot more time than I imagined. Cedric and these homies were not more stressed. Apparently they spent their morning on the terrace before going to prepare 30 min before mass!

The religious ceremony

Arrived at Church Castillo lost his zen attitude of the morning. He was the 100 steps while waiting for the start of the ceremony. The mass was for us the moment the most important of our wedding day. We wanted that everyone can enjoy this time including those for whom the mass is not too a passion! 🙂

It therefore put all our heart to choose texts and songs that really spoke to us! And this moment fully! The emotion was to go. I could not hide it at the time of the exchange of consents!

And after

The mass ended, we took the time to greet everyone a little on the forecourt! Then we took our time for photos of couple in Saône quayside (small quiet time away from the world and agitation)!

With hindsight it said that this is exactly the wedding we wanted, both simple and elegant. No socket head, taking our time and especially true, in our convictions and our emotions!

And on the side of the picture:

Why a pro photographer?

We long hesitated before taking a pro photographer. I really want to because I love the beautiful photos taken live and I wanted not only to classical and posed photos!

But I didn’t “impose” this extra expense to our parents who fund very much marriage. At the beginning of the year I said that this day would be unique that it had put all our heart. I will necessarily regret not having pictures at the height to watch and surely show our future children. If there is one day or memories and emotions remain serious it is that our wedding! Cedric was in agreement, was to convince our parents that finally were much more receptive to our arguments that it had imagined!

The choice of the photographer

I had a well precise idea of the style of photos I wanted and I immediately appreciated the work of Castile through photos of his website.

At summer very plain and simple, a very good first contact by Skype and then a true connection at the time of the love session! We had no particular expectations for the love session if it doesn’t meet “real” Castille. Finally we spent awhile very a pleasant to us simply wander Lyon and learn a bit about us before the day J!

A few days after we have been really overwhelmed by the result. 

And well it was not disappointed at all! Castile and his second shooter was perfect during the marriage, both very discreet but present at the right times! They were able to capture our emotions our faces, they lived our wedding with us but mostly without imposing, being always available and putting everyone at ease (even my dad who normally does not like the picture, it’s say!) 🙂

The result

Really beyond what we could imagine, when we re – viewing photos one has the impression to relive our wedding, one discovers even things, moments that had escaped us and that they have captured! Photos are of course sublime (and that everyone says) but above all they have that little something more, they tell our marriage, atmosphere, and our emotions! And we never get tired of watching and the re – watch! In short they are much more than a souvenir of our wedding! 🙂

Marriage in Riom

Emilie & Guillaume are real and whole people, this marriage is their and they are not betrayed themselves!

In a life of wedding photographer we see everything but I had never met as relaxed as they married and it was extraordinary! Arriving in the House of the bride’s parents, instead of the festivities, I have discovered an anthill, the relatives of the bride and groom, in small groups, each commissioned to make the bouquets of flowers, prepare the pim’s, prepare the table for tea time, repeat the pieces that would be played later…

Emilia, it is my very pretty and relaxed bride that 20 minutes before the ceremony eat a truffade with her friends in a brewery from the corner, a bride who still do not know, at this time, what outfit she will wear, a bride who will not have THE alliance but full of rings to mix in gre of his desires, the bridegrooms who receive a stream of soft words and promises for the future of their loved ones during the civil ceremony and pulling you a tear so it’s sincere and deep! Now, they breathe the love and the pleasure of living and it is just beautiful to see, I let you discover the story of their marriage.

Dress of the bride

Jacket and top: BA & SH
Pants and blouse: Melampo Berlin
Wreath: KOPFLEGENDEN

It is a castle of crush, in Auvergne, in the heart of the France that this young couple of Armenian came to marry.

A wedding fit for a Princess with a majestic robe, a train to no end, the vertiginous heels shoes…

Armine, the bride, is of incredible beauty, you would think any right exit fee accounts and this day was just as magical.

Most of his family was introduced, a fifty people, dear people at its heart and is the most important on his wedding day.

Her sisters were present during preparations for the bride to perform rituals such as rotate the veil around the head of the bride, pour offerings on the sail, offering jewelry, the perfume, putting on his shoes…

As the place he had chosen for their wedding has a small chapel, all took place on the spot, a priest had even travelled specially Armenia to celebrate their marriage.

Once ready, his father came to see the bride. The emotion of his father when he discovered it was extraordinary, as the customs in their country, the solemnity of the ceremony…

At the exit of the ceremony, the Armenians do not throw confetti or petals on the couple but chocolates and sweets, all contributed to make this stunning wedding in Auvergne.

Blueberry and Ben live in Paris where Blueberry has opened his own restaurant in the 11th. Ben is English, it was there that they met.

When they decided to get married they had only a single imperative, to find a place big enough to accommodate the entire family of Ben from England and a place resembling them.

Because Yes, my dear married young had chosen as theme vintage retro-kitsh, inspired by Wes Abderson. Their mood was okay breathing the 1970s with as dominant colour English green (bah Yes necessarily), theatre with frames, photos, garlands of light, sofas and lamps outside, bright suspensions, masks, surreal settings… Deco table would be composed of long tables, candlesticks, in chic country style, vegetable, friendly on the vegetable, Blueberry was clear she wanted herbs, plants, shoots, leaves, vegetables, Heather offsuit containers…

And it was in Normandy at the Prévanches Manor that they said yes! All the decor provided was in place, the atmosphere very British was there too, with children of honour dressed in small school children English, the sauces very flashy to the cocktail, the holding of the groom and guests.

Blueberry and green shoes, her crinoline passing not in the aisles of the Church or in the mini.

I let you discover this lovely story of marriage in Normandy under the colours of autumn.
