From Et Voila Weddings… Nicole and John came to us with an idea of planning a romantic, classic and elegant wedding in Paris. They had gotten engaged there a few weeks earlier and it was quite clear for them that Paris was where they wanted to say their “I Do’s.”

For this intimate destination wedding and these Paris lovers, it was clear to us that we needed to find a venue that was part of the city’s heritage, an historical Parisian venue. After looking at a few luxury hotels, museums and hotels, Nicole and John chose the Shangri La’s historical rooms to hold their special day. As they could not fly to Paris before the wedding, we sent them a lot of photos and they made their choice from pictures and trusting our knowledge of each venue.

Nicole had a clear idea of her colour palette from the start: she wanted natural tones, creams and whites. As the dinner table linen was going to be white, we agreed to add a bit of blush flowers to the arrangements to make them stand out a bit more. The florist did a great job on sourcing the perfect tones, especially the ranunculus which were perfect and encapsulating the whole colour palette on one flower.

At the Shangri La, ceremonies are usually held in one of their salons. Nicole was not very excited about the ceremony space available, and while on a logistical site visit we thought the rotunda (which is a large landing space) was a gorgeous space and definitely a great one for a ceremony, with its large stained glass, marbles and sculptures. It had never been done before and fortunately the venue agreed, as well as the couple. They had a truly unique, never done before wedding ceremony!

The couple was conscious that their party was quite small, and they had at heart to make sure that everyone would be entertained. During cocktails reception we arranged a photo booth with lovely Parisian props (huge success) and a caricaturist, like the ones you find in Montmartre. The guests loved it and all of them had their caricature made, to take home with them!

During dinner a band played some French oldies and some gipsy jazz music, which created the perfect chic, Parisian yet relaxed atmosphere the couple was after for their dinner reception.

At midnight, we planned a surprise group photo with sparklers at the exact time the Eiffel tower started to sparkle. It was magical!

From French Grey PhotographyHanqing and Stephane come from New York to have their magical wedding in the hillsides of the Provence-Alpes-Côte d’Azur region in southeastern France. As a natural light photographer it’s always a pleasure to work in southern France as the light is simply glorious!

Even though their wedding day was in the middle of winter, it was around 25ºC (77ºF) on their day and the warm Mediterranean sun was shining! Their classic elegant wedding was complete with a soft colour palette from the flowers to the decoration details. Hanqing’s brides maids wore classically elegant dress in pastel shades, while Hanqing’s incredible dress was designed by the talented team from Rosa Clara. Celebrating their day at the Domaine du Pourret, which produces it’s own wine, the only thing missing was some grapes on their vines!

It Doesn’t Get More Charming Than a French Countryside Wedding

I’m not sure whether it’s Madame Artisan Fleuriste pretty florals, Sylvie Gil’s dreamy photographs, or the quaint countryside setting itself, but this wedding has completely captured my heart. Simple and sweet, the couple kept the extra fuss to a minimum and let the joy-filled moments speak for themselves. See the day for yourself, little French chapel included.

From The Bride…We wanted something like us, like what we love most in our everyday life. So basically chic but not bling, amazing food and wine, simple, smart, and authentic. It took place in the vineyard of Laurent’s family where there are very old trees, hectares of vines, olive trees, a beautiful, romantic and provencal castle and an amazing tiny chapel, where we have celebrated our union.
