Poppy and Vinny – wedding at Villa Rouge, Corbières, France

I miss skies like this. Deep blue, so deep you know it can only mean heat and southern French light. Summer weddings in France have a magical quality and this one at Villa Rouge in the pretty Languedoc village of Villerouge La Cremade was at the height of the sultry days, infused with happiness and warmth. Topped off with an outdoor meal as the sun lost some of its intensity, and with a pool to cool guests’ feet in the meantime, it was the epitome of relaxed celebration. Poppy and Vinny thought they’d be self-conscious but they were an absolute joy, just letting all their fears about their photographs go and having the best day ever with each other and with their friends and family. Hot love x

    Married at La Cannonerie, France – Elaine and Ric

    Eventually I will remember how to insert my images from beginning to end. But for now, here’s another back to front French wedding! Better than not posted at all perhaps, especially as its a pretty special wedding at gorgeous venue La Cannonerie in the Cognac area of France. It was a while ago and there’s still much catching up to do with other weddings and portraits that followed this one as the world madness has caused quite a hiatus in my work. But talking to couples about their weddings this year (that look likely to happen! yay!) and next has brought my mojo right back and looking back at these memories now I’m even more excited. Hello again 🙂

      Tania and Bree – same sex wedding, Wharfedale Grange

      Wharfedale Grange is a lovely Yorkshire wedding venue, with a surprisingly similar vibe to the celebrations I photograph abroad – an outdoorsy, relaxed environment while being stylish and very very cool. Tania and Bree got married there on a rainy day which limited the chances to enjoy the beautiful grounds but luckily those amazing interiors made the perfect backdrop to their day regardless.

        France wedding at the Courtyard at Ste Catherine, Stacey and Olivier

        This whole newly extended family taught me a lot about love. People sometimes ask me if I can see when I photograph a wedding if the couple will stay together. The answer is usually not really though I’d like to say I could. I think most of the couples I photograph are in love on their wedding day and and maybe whatever difficult circumstances happen later and they break up. A handful of times there has been something a bit ‘off’ on the day and it’s not lasted long afterwards but this is rare. Stacey and Olivier’s love for each other was so clear to see, so complete, nobody could have a moment’s doubt. And the love wasn’t just about them either, it was part of a wider community of joy and commitment. Stacey’s parents had a big effect on me too, equally happy and secure in each other’s love. I liked these people a whole lot (and kind of wanted to be part of their family…)!

        As usual I am behind on my blogging and since this wedding Stacey and Olivier have grown an actual baby who is already several months old. So the next generation is already in on the brilliant and beautiful act.

        I’ve got lockdown brain on and have forgotten how to reorder my images and they’ve gone in from last to first. So, sorry, a visual challenge to see the story backwards…

          Chateau Rieutort wedding, France – Nina and Daniel

          It’s not uncommon for me to photograph a wedding where I don’t understand much of what is being said and this wedding in France was one of those. Nina and Daniel are German but Daniel has French family, so there was a lovely mix of European languages and cultures. The British weren’t at the party at all, apart from me, observing and wishing we could let our hair down with such abandon. Reminds me of something. Exuberance like this is fantastic to photograph and it really makes no difference what language is being spoken, the joy shines through.

          Chateau Rieutort is a gorgeous venue, not far from my base in the Herault region of the Languedoc, and Nina and Daniel really made the most of the beautiful grounds, with a festival kind of vibe for their outdoor ceremony and meal beneath the festoon lighting. Magical. And what a party!
