Fall Wedding at Domaine des Moures

Chapel at Domaine des Moures

Today we travel back to the Occitanie region for a beautiful styled shoot at Le Domaine des Moures. Lexie from Alexievents based in LA tells us the story of this beautiful day which took place two days before France was placed in lock down for a second time…

“Wedding photographer Aurélie Fritz and I planned this styled shoot together in France due to Covid. We teamed up with Mathylde, a young wedding planner who finished her internship.

We wanted to represent another region in the South of France and offer an alternative to the typical Provence and French Riviera weddings, so we picked Occitanie with all it’s charm and beauty.

The venue, Le Domaine des Moures is located only thirty minutes from Montpellier and is surrounded by a lakeside. It has a chapel, bridal suite with pool, three BNB rooms – a typical hamlet.

Thanks to the weather, you can host a wedding all year round from intimate ceremonies to large scale events.

I can’t thank enough all the vendors – mostly local – who collaborated and made this shoot unforgettable during the pandemic, two days prior to being locked down again.

The theme of this shoot was “Fall wedding” so I designed a colour palette with pastel tones to be able to use the pictures at anytime of the year. Fall touches were added in the editing process. Romanticism and Boho vibes were my inspiration and Aurélie used natural and bright light. The result is very soft and elegant.

Our floral designer Karin from Jardin d’Arums made incredible floral arrangements from the ceremony area to the table settings, guests and bridal table. For the table settings, we asked Louise & Juliette to get involved with their vintage inventory, the French “Art de la table ” culture.

Coco Touch Deco completed this scenery with baroque chairs, a vintage red couch for the honour table and a real Singer table as the wedding cake table to complement the wedding cake made by Elodie from Ljm Events.

Our invitation designer, les faireparts de Sophie, made an amazing work with all designs for the shoots, from the invitations to the menus, she designed also an acrylic table setting and my favourite is the circle table setting playing in the air. She is an artist, the perfect combination with our floral designer, les jardins d’arums and our vintage art de la table by Louise & Juliette to create a French wedding style.

The shoot took place outside after a rainy morning. We thought we would have to postpone but thank God the wind came up and the sun showed up just in time. Accessories are handmade creations, made in France by Aurora Secrets and Mademoiselle Pap et Cie.

Even though it was a styled shoot, we decided to include a manicurist and an officiant. This was important for us as they play a huge part in real weddings and we wanted to give them the opportunity to join us and be able to share this journey too.

Our nail artist Morgane and hair and makeup artist Anais did an incredible job of our bride and bridemaids hair, makeup and nails. I recommend doing all of these things on the same day as the wedding, especially for the bride, because it’s a relaxing time for her.

My best moment was definitely when they were on the bridge, a private beach. It was so romantic, even if the sunset was a bit shy.
