Fashion Forward French Engagement Shoot

These engagement pics are gonna be hard to beat. This Needle and Tread gown is chic and stunning, and the white tux worn by this hubby-to-be is practically perfect. Add in a French chateau as their playground and Greg Finck’s talent behind the lens and we have a gallery bursting with beauty. See it all right this way!

From Greg FinckPeggy and Andy are from Hong Kong and flew to Paris for their engagement session. With both working in design, it was difficult to find a more fashion forward couple! Peggy wore a stunning blush Needle and Thread gown, with amazing Sophia Webster’s heels, and Andy was in a white tux. We headed to the glorious Château de Chantilly, near Paris, for their engagement. It was such a beautiful and hot summer day in Paris, but the couple is glowing with its beauty and love!

We’re in Love with the Love Between These Two!

I love when photographers capture other photographers; the images seem to sparkle a little more. So when Gert Huygaerts snapped these fellow wedding photographers for their engagement shoot in Paris, I knew we were in for a treat. And the way Marie and Matthieu describe their life together made it even better: “We are in love with love, shooting love is our job, we share a passion, we share a vision of love and we learn a lot together…” See it all go down in our Vault right here!

From Gert Huygaerts PhotographyGetting the question from another fine art film photographer to shoot their love bond in the amazing city of Paris, is a true honour to me… I felt really blessed to be chosen by Marie and Matthieu to immortalize their love this autumn. Marie and Matthieu met at work, on a wedding day where Matthieu was Marie’s second shooter. She totally did not expect to fall in love with this gentleman, but it happened. As sometimes there are more lows in life then highs, they were both in the same feeling that moment… But what happened then, can be captured in one sentence: “and then I met you…”

As Marie told me how she feels her job and life… It just sounds adorable: “We are in love with love, shooting love is our job, we share a passion, we share a vision of love and we learn a lot together. For once we wanted to be on the other side of the camera, to celebrate our love.”

From Wedding AngelsI first met Katie and Remy, from Dubaï, one whole year before their wedding and took them on a day of visits in Provence. They were a sweet couple, really relaxed and looking for a lovely setting for their wedding where they could invite their guests to spend a week of fun with them wine tasting, chilling by the pool and basically just enjoying each others company. They fell in love with Château de Robernier and the countryside and picturesque landscapes surrounding the venue.

The next time I saw them was exactly one year later at Château de Robernier for their rehearsal. Their entire wedding was planned over email, Skype, phone and and WhatsApp. Although Katie and Remy were so low maintenance, un-fussed and easy going, their wedding was full of the little details that make a difference to the day. Katie carefully chose the corkscrew favors and wrapped them herself and decorated with heart shaped wooden name tags, they personalized their own ring box, the table names were also hand made photo collages of special milestones in the couples’ life together. The flowers were simple arrangements of soft peach colour roses, greenery and baby’s breath which really complemented the courtyard of the Château.

When I met up with them and their close family and friends for the rehearsal a few days before the wedding I knew that this would be a fun-filled love-filled event. And I could not have been more right.

The couple arrived in the area and rented a large country home with their bridal party one week before the wedding. They went wine tasting to select the wines for the wedding day from local vineyards around the Castle. Two days before most of their guests had arrived and were invited to a rehearsal dinner on the quaint main square in Cotignac, one of the most beautiful villages in France. They had a great evening mingling and partying until the early hours.

The wedding day was a lovely hot August Saturday. The atmosphere was so light all day, it was a pleasure to be around the bridal party while they were getting ready. The ceremony was led by a family member and the couple were surrounded by a very large bridal party, bridesmaids in blush/peach dresses and groomsmen in dark blue suits with peach bow-tie.

Champagne was served in front of the Castle with canapés before guests were invited to sit down to dinner in the courtyard lit with string lights and lots of candles and lanterns. The speeches were lovely and full of warmth and love.

After cutting the traditional French Croquembouche, Katie and Remy opened the ball in the beautiful Château ballroom and the party went on until dawn.
