Once upon a time : Céline & Vincent

Once upon a time : Céline & Vincent

Céline and Vincent organized a lovely day that was really true to their characters.

They decided to take their inspiration from their family symbol: the tree, to create a personalized décor and a special atmosphere. We ‘ll leave you to enjoy the beautiful images taken by You Made My Day, their photographer.

“We were at the top of a panoramic sky-scraper in New York in July 2013. Clichéd maybe, but so romantic.

We knew that we both wanted to get married, but had decided that the proposal still ought to be a surprise. And what a surprise it was when he got the ring out at the end of the meal.

It was just the right moment, and looking back know we wouldn’t have wanted it to happen any other way.”

You Made My Day is actually Baptiste Hauville, a photographer specializing in wedding photos.

His belief? The more spontaneous, the more authentic! Attentive to the smallest detail, Baptiste is able to capture the little moments of warmth and intimacy that give a wedding day all its meaning.

Coming from a “Street Photography” background, Baptiste is inspired by the magic of the present moment. His work has a very personal touch, and a feel of minimal romanticism.

Thanks to his virtues, his photos will always be highly touching and full of spontaneity.

I don’t know if I’m really in any position to give advise, as I think everyone has to go through her wedding planning how she feels is right. But if I had to take three things out of this experience, they would have to be:

1 – To know to delegate, whether to family, friends or a wedding planner, especially on the big day itself!

2 – To stress before, but not on the big day. Whatever happens, even if everything doesn’t go exactly to plan, the day will still be perfect. It’s not the details that matter but the general feeling of the love you’re sharing with your nearest and dearest.

3 – Above all, take just three minutes during the madness of the wedding to look around you, and really experience those few minutes fully, telling yourself that you will remember this particular moment for the rest of your life. As we all know, good things always pass too quickly.

Un beau jour: Jordane & Volkier

Un beau jour: Jordane & Volkier

Jordane & Volkier, today’s newlyweds, have given us some sterling advice: “if the place is pretty and the flowers fresh and beautiful: there’s not much more to worry about.”

And they’re quite right; if the location you’ve chosen is enough in itself, you won’t need to fork out more money for decoration, giving you one less thing to worry about ;)

mariage original

“One Autumn in Granada, it was early morning in the little garden and we were alone on the footpath. Volkier had been on an exchange to the town ten years before, and he had loved the place so much that he’d always said that it was where he was going to propose. It was perfect; simple and intimate.”

photographe de mariage

lucie_sassiatLucie Sassiat goes about her work in the same way as you would writing a personal diary. Her work is diverse and fun: family albums, actors’ headshots, artists’ portraits and wedding photography, the young photographer captures life in all its aspects, creating a rich and poetic universe which celebrates the delightful details of our everyday lives.

Her images stand out for their sensitivity and their honesty, and we are struck at once by her intimacy with her subjects as well as the sincerity of her approach. She plays on old codes, like natural beauty and color palettes, and strives most of all to convey the visual impact of true emotion.

Over the couse of the years, this instinctive, spontaneous streak has become the defining mark of the texture of her photography.

 

mariage conseils

1 – Listen to your heart.

Go for the robe that really looks good on you, invite the people that you really want to see, choose the decoration you really like, the suppliers who are actually nice rather than “the best”, choose the texts and songs that have meaning for you. And don’t try and do everything yourself, because you’ll tire yourself out super quick.

2 – Sort out everything in advance, even the little details.

We were planning on doing/ buying lots of things at the last minute, but there were so many unexpected difficulties that it really slowed up our planning! (e.g. hairstyling, make-up, arrows to direct people, photocopies, last minute purchases…).  And in the few days before you want to be able to make the most of your time, so try and have sorted out as much as possible by this point.

3 – Don’t be shy to ask for help.

Our friend Jérémy organized all the floral decoration; he arrived 3 days before with other friends to help him prepare everything and it was a crazy blur of petals and stems, but so much fun. The amusement park next to the house that Jordane knew as a child lent us a little poney for the kids, and one of Volkier’s cousins also had a drone and brought it to film incredible shots when we were coming out of the church, the house, and of our uncles and aunts who live in the village and know everyone there.
