Today’s couple is so cool! And the marriage proposal is so nice (read it, it’s so sweet). The photos show a day with an amazing atmosphere, and believe us when we say that this is all that counts on a wedding day – do everything so that people enjoy themselves, and don’t get too obsessed over centrepieces ;)

mariage original

“Julies asked me to marry him on Valentine’s Day, February 14th 2013. As he didn’t have a present, he really threw himself into it (true fact). Marriage had never been a childhood dream for him, but for me it definitely had been, and I had a proposal like something out of ‘Pretty Woman’.

A chauffeur in a black sedan came for me, with the order of not telling me anything. I crossed Paris and arrived in front of a hotel in the 16th arrondissement. I didn’t know that it was a hotel. They made me take a seat before taking me to the room. There was a message: “Get into the bath”. I opened a door and discovered an enormous round bath with foam up to the ceiling. I complied with the instructions, and I saw him arrive. He got down on his knees, but I presumed he was just getting down to the level of the bathtub, he got out a box, and I thought it was just a Valentine’s Day present. I could never have imagined that it was a proposal given that he didn’t want to get married, until I saw the ring! That day, I had the flu, fever, a bun of greasy hair on top of my head, and Biafine cream on my nose. I fainted, through a combination of the fever, the temperature of the bath, and all of the emotion”

Yann-audic

For a brief history, Lifestories Wedding was born in 2008 in Sydney and grew up between Australia, Japan and France, where we have been settled since 2012! “We” are Yann and Naoko, a French-Australian-Japanese duo. Yann is a photographer, specialising in portraits and reportages, always involved in creative projects or occupied with capturing everything around him! Naoko is the “designer” of Lifestories, a craft expert, always with plenty of creations to finish, carefully occupying herself with mock-ups of Lifestories’ magnificent albums – and it’s without a doubt what has made them so successful!

It was really great – our witnesses sang, they played a film extract, the readings were really relevant, and the projected films were hilarious.
