Wedding in the heart of Lyon

Marie and Cédric are my pretty bride and groom at the beginning of June. One of the first wedding of the season under the sun, yes! Even if they have the chance to see it more often … And yes, they live by the sea, it seems that it is more practical when working for the Navy. But for their marriage they returned to the native lands of Marie, in Lyon. Especially since his father is a deacon at the Basilica of Lyon 2.

It was a white wedding. One of the big fears of the groom … Is that one of the white will not make yellow or gray? Picture answer …

How did you meet?

We met almost 5 years to the day before our wedding a few miles from Pizay.
We almost did not know each other at the evening of the blow we sympathized, spoke, danced (it made me believe that he knew to dance the salsa but not at all). Finally it was a sleepless night to talk about everything is nothing.

How and where Cedric made his request

He made his request to Sanary by the beach. At the time of dessert he had ordered a gourmet coffee and among the cupcakes of the gourmet coffee there was a kinder surprise !!
After eating all the chocolate and shaking in every way surprise to try to guess what it was I opened it. I discovered a ring. He knelt down and asked me if I could do my life with him!

Preparations for marriage:

The place

We started with the unavoidable search of the reception area. After crossing the lands of Beaujolais and South Burgundy we had a favorite for Pizay and especially for the outside (the bower and the French garden).

The dress

I chose 5 dresses that I liked. Once the fittings arrived I have a favorite for two of them. Finally after a loooooooongue hesitation I finally decided and in hindsight I do not regret at all!

The decor

Then my fan of deco and small details could express themselves freely. To make them parts, the decoration of table, the choice of fabrics of the garments of honor, the candy bar, the impression tree …

Cédric (less passionate about liberty fabrics and small vases) wanted to offer cocktails specialties from each of the regions where he had lived. He therefore confided to his mother, among other things, research and preparation of Guyanese specialties!

The closer the “D” day came, the more the mode “organization and planning of the smallest details” became active. The last week was particularly busy. But luckily we also understood in time that we needed to know a little delegate and this help the last week was great!

A lot of things to think, think, organize, a bit of stress but especially a lot of fun!

Day D

Unlike the stressful week that we just had to live to complete all the preparations on D-Day was for me super serene, relax, I had put myself in cool mode, Zen and whatever happens I enjoy it’s a great day!


The town hall happened in super relaxed mode. The preparations after, while I thought I had to time, everything happened to cool with much more time than I imagined. Cedric and these friends were no more stressed. Apparently they spent their morning in the terrace before going to prepare 30 min before the mass!

The ceremony religious

Arrived at the church Cedric lost his zen attitude of the morning.

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

And after

When the mass was over, we took the time to greet everyone on the square! Then we took our time for photos of couple on the quai de Saône (quiet little time away from the world and the hustle and bustle)!

In retrospect we say that it is exactly the wedding we wanted, both simple and elegant. Not taking a head, taking our time and especially true, in our convictions and our emotions!

And photo side:

Why a photographer pro?

We have long hesitated before taking a pro photographer. I wanted to do it because I love the pretty pictures taken on the go and I wanted not only posed and classic photos!
But I did not dare to “impose” this extra expense on our parents who funded a large part of the marriage. At the beginning of the year I said to myself that this day would be unique that we had put our heart into it. I will inevitably regret not having pictures at the height to watch and surely to show to our future children. If there is indeed a day when memories and emotions must remain engraved it is indeed that of our marriage! Cedric agreed, was more than to convince our parents who finally were much more receptive to our arguments than we had imagined!

The photographer’s choice

I had a very precise idea of the style of photos that I wanted and I immediately appreciated the work of Castile through the photos of its website.

Everything was very simple and clear, a very good first contact by Skype then a real contact at the time of the ! We did not have any special expectations for the love session if it does not meet “for real” Castile. Finally we had a very enjoyable time just strolling around Lyon and learning a bit about getting to know each other before D-Day!

A few days later we were really dazzled by the result.

Well we were not disappointed at all !! Castille and his second shooter were perfect during the wedding, both very discreet but well present at the right times! They knew how to capture our emotions our faces, they lived our wedding with us but especially without imposing ourselves, being always available and putting everyone at ease (even my dad who normally does not like 🙂

The result

Really beyond anything you could imagine, when you look at the photos you feel like you are re-living our marriage, we even discover things, moments Who had escaped us and whom they knew how to capture! The photos are obviously sublime (and that everyone tells us) but especially they have this little something more, they tell our marriage, the atmosphere and our emotions! And we never get tired of watching them and watching them again! In short they are much more than a souvenir of our wedding!
