Sonny & Ann are both from Singapore, and had decided to organize their wedding day at stunning Château de Vaux le Vicomte. This is undoubtedly the most prestigious venue around Paris, and I had never had the chance to work in that amazing XVIIth century castle before. The couple trusted Sarah Haywood, a celebrity luxury wedding planner from London, to organize the weekend festivities. The day started at The Shangri-La Hotel in Paris, where Ann got ready and the couple led the tea ceremony. For the ceremony, Ann wore a stunning couture dress from Elie Saab, with a 30 feet long train. The ceremony was held outdoor despite the chilly Parisian weather that day. Reception was absolutely stunning with amazing florals by The Isle of You, and an amazing main table. Guests were then invited to the gardens of the Château, for a glorious firework, and an incredible video mapping on the facade of the Château.

Wild White Horses + Gorgeous Gowns Are Making Our Dreams Come True

It’s no secret that the South of France holds a special place in SMP’s heart (one mention of lavender fields and we’re all aflutter) but it just rose to a whole new status with this styled shoot by Larissa Cleveland. Inspired by the beauty of the wild Camargue horses, this gallery is a fairytale brought to life and we can’t get enough. Get ready to love Provence even more than you thought you already did – right this way!

From Larissa Cleveland… This was my first time in the South of France. I’d been to Paris, but always dreamed of visiting the small towns and beautiful landscape of Provence. When I began my research for the trip, I stumbled across the unique history of the Camargue Horses. They are all white, and roam the salt marshes and flat territories along the coast. Not far from the beautiful cities of Saint Remy and Les Baux, where I’d be staying and photographing on my trip. The horses are a celebrated fixture of Provence history, and equally mysterious, as it is not known exactly how they came to be there.

I wanted to avoid the classic Provence stereotypes for this shoot, so I did not focus on the lavender fields or Grand Chateau’s in the countryside. Instead my inspiration would be the beautiful white Camargue horses, and old stone walls and alley-ways of the ancient towns. The soft greys and creams of the old stone, and the wild flowing mane of the Camargue horse perfectly complemented the pale pink, flowy J.Mendel dress provided by Jin Wang in San Francisco. The stunning white stone staircase inside the Hotel De Tourrel in Saint Remy made for a beautiful location, as well as the ancient alleyways outside. Then for sunset, we trekked to the top of the Ancient Ruins of Les Baux in the hills.

For the table inspiration, I chose pale pink hues and stone to mimic the rest of the shoot. Romantic, and a bit wild. Yonder Design made beautiful custom equestrian invites and I purchased the most beautiful petrified wood chargers from Terrain.
