Lara & Kjell | A Provence Wedding at Chateau Robernier

 

THE DAY BEFORE

 
 

THE WEDDING DAY

 

THE VERY NEXT DAY

 

I'm not sure where to begin with this incredible three day wedding at the stunning Chateau de Robernier in Provence. The energy, the atmosphere, the laughter, the happiness; it was all in abundance and resulted in a truly wonderful three day wedding for Lara & Kjell. Their attention to detail and level of thought for all their guests was just amazing. I can only imagine that their guests had the time of their lives. Everywhere I looked guests were truly in the moment; laughing, hugging, kissing, dancing, eating, drinking, beaming. It was spectacular. Lara & Kjell chose to have an unplugged wedding (no phones, photos etc), and it made an enormous difference. Everyone was present, focused on the wonderful events around them, no distractions, just utter happiness and enjoyment. A perfect decision in my opinion!

Lara & Kjell value and appreciate photography; it is incredibly important to them and as a result, I felt hugely privileged to have been chosen to document their wedding, after what, Lara described to be an extensive search for her perfect photographer! No pressure on me then...! Upon receiving their images, Lara sent me a wonderful message... "I have absolutely no words for how perfect they are. I literally don't know how to describe this feeling right now..we are beyond happy. My face hurts from smiling from ear to ear. There were some tears too, but mostly just plain happiness. Everybody looks so happy in the photos, our guests gave us the perfect weekend, and you managed to make the feeling last a lifetime. Thank you" This is all I can hope for, and means the world to me. I am truly grateful for the couples who trust me to document their day.

The beautiful flowers were by Laetitia C, an amazing florist whom I have worked with before. 

Lastly I want to thank Nicki Drab for being a second shooter on this wedding. My best bud and incredible side kick. She brings so much to the day, as many of my clients will attest to! I love you! And lastly, my ever patient, beautiful, husband Samuel for assisting, lugging bags, and sacrificing his own holiday days from work as a paramedic to support me, as he has done for the past 12 years that we have been together, and  the 7 years of running my business. What can I say? I'm pretty darn lucky. 

The wedding season has been busy and I only wish there were more minutes and hours in the day to share all I have been shooting...have a great weekend everyone, I will, of course, be at a wedding! xxx

 

Nicki & Molly | Hampstead Heath

 

Oh my these girls are beautiful together. Nicki is my best friend; I've known her half my life. We've been through high school and university together, lived together, she was there the first time I met my husband, she saw me get married and now she helps me in my business. She's one of the few people in the whole world who makes me laugh until I'm crying happy tears. It doesn't matter how many years pass by, I simply love her company.

I am so incredibly happy that she has found Molly, and to see her this happy and so in love is just wonderful. Nicki loves passionately and intensely, she gives her whole heart to her partner, and I do hope this comes through in the images. This kind of shoot inspires me; I just love capturing authentic, intimate, timeless, passionate and romantic images.
