“Louise, from Come Cook In France, our professional stylist and chef that worked for high end magazines such as Vogue, helped us set all the scenes and decoration. Without her the shoot wouldn’t have been as magical. Make-up and Hair were provided by Geraldine from L’institut GL and Eugenie Tastes. Both proved very professional, flexible and a pleasure to work with.”

“The vintage style dress and suit were lent by Sylvie from C’Mariage in Bordeaux and the beautiful flower arrangements were created by Chez Valérie Deco, with Valerie herself taking charge. Aude, the Chateau manager and Jay agreed to pose for us and made a lovely couple on the day!”
