Where to even start with this dreamy french wedding? We had the pleasure of flying over to one of our favorite cities, Paris to film a romantic and stylish wedding at Château de Bourron in Fontainebleau, just outside Paris. Laura & James got to celebrate after 7 years of being together with their gorgeous daughter and closest family and friends. Although the rain descended upon the breathtaking Chateau throughout the day before a beautiful sunset; Laura & James got to make their emotional and personal vows outside in the serenely calm gardens just before the sparkling downpour. Guests celebrated with delicate french cuisine and champagne in the 17th Century Chateau's array of rooms with heart touching speeches, before trickling down to a secret basement for the party. Oh boy was it a party! The Band The Imaginations sang all night to a whirl of dancing, confetti, delicious profiterole wedding cake, champagne fountains and lots more dancing. It was a dream come true to film in such a spectacular venue and to celebrate such a fabulously in love couple.
We instantly fell in love with these guys who invited us in so warmly to their day. Laura & Andrew are so obviously in love, it kept tears in our eyes throughout the day and even in the editing process. The sun popped out at the perfect time to shine on the beautiful Mediterranean feeling garden of Le Petite Chateau (palm trees included) with perfectly chosen music, cocktails and laughter filling out through the day. With giggles, constant smiling and a lots of happy tears (ourselves included) these guys ended with dancing to a whole new level with the ultimate playlist, coordinated with fly moves and singing that has us dancing along. You'll want to be best friends with these guys after seeing them together, we certainly do!
This was possibly the most perfect wedding venue we've seen with a beautiful old priory church encased by a tranquil woods and river. With a few steps from the church a tipi reception sat perfectly by the river with twinkly fairy lights, amazing hanging wild flowers and a cozy fire amongst the beautiful details Laura planned so perfectly. The day was filled with stunning food, northern soul dance class, colourful smoke bomb walks and of course more dancing.
Along with photographing Trudy & Aidans wedding day, we also filmed the day and Michael played during the meal, so we were fully immersed in this wedding and it was such a pleasure to be so. These guys were the nicest couple who were so clearly loved and got to share the day with their beautiful daughter making it extra special. With impromptu family musical sessions, nighttime sparklers and lots of dancing, a perfect day was had!
"Thank you Michael & Alice! We love it!" Trudy & Aidan
