I think we can all agree that tying the knot in France is one of the coolest ways to say “I do.” Especially when that wedding is in the lovely locale known as Lake Geneva and includes DIY florals, sailboats and breathtaking views at every turn. That’s what we here at SMP call “wedding perfection” and you can see every beautiful moment captured by Ana Lui Photography Studio right here.
From Ana Lui Photography Studio… There is always a first time for everything and this was my first time in France… shooting in France!
Camille and Dave asked me to come and shoot their special day and I simply couldn’t resist! I flew to Geneva, then crossed the border and drove all the way down to Evain with Camille’s Dad who was simply amazing!
The sun was shining, the air was crisp and fresh and the views were breathtaking!
Camille’s family house stood at the bottom of majestic mountains and we started the day with getting ready shots.
Camille’s dress was made by Sassi Holford who designed dresses for UK Royal Family. Camille wore shoes by Rainbow. Mum was in charge of the flowers and she did an incredible job!
It was a truly unique and amazing family affair. The ceremony took place at the local church. After the ceremony an entire wedding party moved to a sailing boat that Camille’s and David’s parents organized. Pretty smooth sailing! Lake Geneva/Lac Leman was still, blue and beautiful. Guests sipped on champagne and wine and ate sushi.
After out little boat adventure we have settled in a local lake view venue, Hotel Des Princes Geneva. I loved every moment! It was such an amazing experience to photograph their special day.
We finished with a big bang! Fireworks and skinny dipping in pretty cold lake.
