From Wedding Paris… When I proposed Audrey about organizing a styled shoot, I did not have a precise idea of which side of the parisian wedding I wanted to show. But when she gave the idea of shooting in a typical Parisian apartment all white with mouldings, it became an evidence that we wanted the result to be “simple” but oh so elegant and romantic!

Because Paris IS elegance. Because Paris is Romance. Getting married in Paris does not need too many artifices because this city brings you straightforward to the point that it is enough for itself. That was exactly the point of the shoot.

Lovers having dinner in a Parisian architectural apartment with a delightful fireplace like we can only find in France, tones of silver and white and an amazing light captivated by Audrey.

For the flowers, we wanted something organic and fresh with light tones surrounded by the heat of candlelights. Lily Paloma used wonderful buttercups, anemones and roses. Not to mention the amazing Inbal Dror dress all embroidered of white and silver that fitted so nicely in the atmosphere. The silver bolded stationeries seemed to be the continuity of the crockery.

From the beautiful Bride… After more than 15 years together and two children, we decided not to live anymore in sin and to introduce spirituality in our couple.

My dear mother-in-law is at the origin of this decision. I would never thank her enough for her help and support in the organization of the d-day. Besides welcoming us in her wonderful castle, she makes a fantastic wedding planner!

Feeling at home, we enjoyed the place during several days. Our friends and families arrived on thursday (the wedding was on saturday) and the last ones leaved the castle on Monday. We had time with everyone!

The success of our wedding is due to the implication of many of our friends and our moms. I just love DIY, so I wanted to realize most of the supplies, the handkerchiefs, the dragées, the church’s notebook for guests, the little welcoming word in the guest’s rooms… And of course for the decoration. I blew my wishes to Véronique (quelque chose de bleu) which took care of the scenography.

As I have a sense of detail and aesthetic considerations, i wished those moments of happiness and share to be catched by professionals. ( Coralie Photography & RecordYou). I had a couple for that! GREAT! It was the same for music, a couple (The Mellow)! Isn’t it romantic?

I really want to thank our families, friends and moms. And more especially Sylvie, Christelle, Laura and Charlotte for their small precious hands, my BFF Mimie and Maé, and of course, everyone involved for their warmth and their patience!

Romantic Swedish Coastal Wedding

I have a confession to make, I’m marrying a Swede, which makes this gorgeous harbor wedding on the Swedish coast an all-time favorite. Photographer Les Productions De La Fabrik beautifully captured the Swedish countryside, the gorgeous white and pink tablescapes and of course, the stunning couple. This wedding is a mix of elegance and simplicity at its finest. You can see all the details here!


From Les Productions De La Fabrik … Céline is French, Carloskar is Swedish and they met 6 years ago in Singapore. After long hesitations between France and Sweden, they finally decided to celebrate their union in the small and magical harbour village Mölle in the South of Sweden.

From The Bride ... The whole idea for the wedding was romantic and shabby chic style with a natural feel. The color scheme was blush pink and light beige. Print material were very important to me, therefore I chose Veronique Deshayes in Paris for the creation of the Save the Date, Wedding invitation, Escort card, Menus… We also created a conversation guides and a map for our guests to be able to discuss as it was a quite international mix of people. The decoration was made out of peonies, ivy leaves and old roses, arranged by the local florist Camilla from Mine Blomster in Höganäs. Camilla and the wedding coordinator Charlotte from CH Bröllop Event worked together on the venue decoration and decided to use as main colors light pink, nude and beige to match with the bridesmaids’ dresses. It took me a long time to decide upon my wedding dress, but finally I chose a custom made dress in laces from Celestina Agostino. The ceremony was held in Grand Hotel Mölle with the 180 degrees view on the harbor and the sea as backdrop. The refined dinner consisted of discovering local food tradition from the Skåne region. We really had our dream wedding and the magical week-end has been pictured by the talented wedding photographer Peggy from Les Productions de la Fabrik. She has been a dream following us throughout the week-end, understanding exactly our personalities and styles. She was always there to catch important moments, though we barely notice her presence. We are very thankful that she managed to keep all the beautiful memories on paper.

Surprise French Riviera Vow Renewal

What better way to end National Proposal Day than on a high note with this ultra romantic vow renewal. As a wedding planner herself, this Mrs. wanted to show her love how much he means to her, gathering the talents of D’amour et de Deco and Nice Plume Calligraphies for a seaside ceremony. Ingrid Lepan captured the moment and these pics have me guaranteed to enter the weekend in a really great mood.

From the beautiful Mrs… As a wedding planner, I’ve always daydreamed about what my wedding would be like if I did it all again. Not only the flowers and the decor, but how much more I would share with Ryan; the things I would tell him and the promises I would make. I had absolutely no clue what I was getting into on my wedding day and what a crazy beautiful adventure our marriage would turn out to be. Over the last four years, when life has happened, Ryan has stepped up in such big ways. My love and respect has grown so much for him every single day. I’ve never really been able to put into words exactly how much he means to me.

When we started planning a trip to the French Riviera, I knew this was the perfect moment I had been waiting for to renew our vows. I reached out to Ingrid Lepan Photographe, and she helped me secure the most amazing team of vendors to pull off this surprise. This team from Southern France created something even more beautiful than I’d ever envisioned.

Complete with a gorgeous tablescape with florals in scarlet and berry shades, elegant calligraphy, hand drawn paper designs, and a beautiful to-die-for regional dessert, I fell in love with it all. The tart tropezienne is a local pastry signature to the area we visited, Saint Tropez. This team of French wedding vendors designed every little detail to be completely stunning; a tiny woven braid cascading from my bouquet, a bowl of the freshest local berries, the most beautiful and creative photographic angles. We stood on the beach and took in the breathtaking view – snow covered Alps and the gorgeous French hillside. So many tears were shed as we shared the same vows from our wedding day along with a few additional words by me. It was a day we will always be thankful for and could never forget – a moment far better than any of my daydreams.

Surprise Paris Proposal

I’m still struggling to wrap my mind around how amazing this whole situation is. Not only did this lucky lady get one gorgeous sparkler placed on her ring finger, but she got a whirlwind trip to Paris on the side. And to ensure that not a moment would be forgotten, Catherine O’Hara trailed along and captured every fantastic French moment. Even on National Proposal Day, I’m not sure if anything beats this.

From the Bride… What was supposed to be a weekend trip just outside of San Diego, California turned into the most romantic trip of my lifetime.

Cole, my boyfriend of six years, told me to pack my bags for a short weekend trip. Next thing I knew, we were in the airport terminal and he already had my passport. I had no idea where we were jetting off to since I had a grad school event in two days, but when I put on my “Oui, Mon Cherie” (French for “Yes my dear”) sweatshirt and Cole laughed, I knew we were headed to my dream destination: Paris! I was overjoyed! I had never been to Europe before and I could finally put all those French courses to good use in the most romantic city in the world.

Cole isn’t always a planner, so I was shocked when he had this secret going. With the help of my two best friends, Cole planned the whirlwind trip. The next big surprise was when we headed off to one of Cole’s favorite spots, Sacré-Cœur. We had been sleeping off jet lag when he suddenly declared we had to get to Montmartre. We hopped in a cab and were on our way. As we weaved in and out of the summer crowds around the magnificent mountain top church, I could feel Cole rummaging through his pockets. The rest was a blur! I don’t love being the center of attention, so when he got down on one knee, I quickly and excitedly said, “YES! Now get up! GET UP!” He had planned so well, that there was a secret photographer to capture the moment. We then gallivanted throughout Paris as a happy freshly engaged couple, with photographer Catherine O’Hara poetically documenting our new bliss!

Truly a “Oui, Mon Cherie” moment!

From Lavender & RoseFrom the moment we met this sweet couple, we were really made to feel like part of the family. After visiting a handful of venues on the French Riviera & Provence, their heart skipped a beat when they set foot into the Chateau de la Napoule. The only true Chateau in the area located right on the water’s edge, the Chateau de la Napoule is steeped in history. Everywhere you look, the venue tells a romantic tale of two lovers, two creative souls, in a world of fantasy and mystery. Previously owned by Henry & Mary Clews, two bohemian artists from an American aristocratic background, the venue contains the full collection of art and sculptures produced by H&C Clews during their residency at the Chateau de la Napoule. The words « Once Upon A Time » above the door leading from the courtyard to the interior of the Chateau adds to the story book magic of the place.

The celebrations began with a ceremony in the majestic alley lined by shaded gardens. The couple were wed in front of a luscious wall of white roses, hydrangeas and gypsophila. The groomsmen & groom entered first holding two new members of the family; a gorgeous little baby boy and girl. Accompanied by the beautiful voice of soulful song bird Lizzy Parks, the bride entered with her father creating a moment full of emotion.

A drinks and canapé reception followed in the gardens overlooking the coast. French specialists such as snails, “Foie Gras” and frogs legs were served with Champagne and strawberry daiquiri. Guests were given a personalised Panama hat to shade from the Riviera sun.

Dinner was revealed in the courtyard, an extremely romantic setting with hanging decoration, festoon lights and soft amber coloured up-lights. Nestled under a sycamore tree, the top table was adorned with a garland of peonies, gypsophila, David Austin roses and spray roses and handing candles and flowers were suspended from the tree’s branches overhead. Guests dined on parmesan risotto beautifully served on top of a porcelain dome lit with a candle from underneath. Between courses, an acoustic party band went from table to table building the party atmosphere. Guests enjoyed a photo booth with floral backdrop and fun props. A veal main course with truffle flavoured potatoes followed and the meal ended with a dessert buffet adorned with cristal hanging chandeliers. The square, three tier cake topped with little love birds was cut and the groom lifted the bride up high in the air in a moment of passion.

Guests danced into the early hours in the gothic dining room to the carefully chosen beats of our wonderful DJ Thomas Dusseune while flair barmen mixed delicious cocktails.
