It might be a bank holiday in the UK, but not to fear as I have a fabulous and glam real wedding to start the week, in fact an intimate wedding for two in Paris capture by One and Only Paris Photography.
Our couple today Cynthia and Mustafa are not only ultra romantic, but ultra ultra chic! Cynthia’s Reem Acra wedding dress is the embodiment of glamour and sophistication and I am in love with the pop of fuchsia flowers mixed with vibrant emerald green shoes!
Bride Cynthia takes us through their love story: “My husband and I have known of each other in passing for years. Then one day out of the blue we met for drinks and the rest is history. 6 months later he proposed to me at that same spot. By this point he had completely swept me away. I was his for the long run.

My husband being the romantic that he is decided that we should get married on the one year anniversary of our first meeting or as he likes to call it “date”. It was not a date but we will always playfully dispute this minor detail. Ha! We are both very laid back individuals and from the start we knew that we did not want to do a big wedding celebration. We wanted something super intimate, romantic and chic. I had seen a friend’s “Elopement in Paris” pictures and was completely enamored with the gorgeous photographs and of course Paris.
I was inspired by the idea and i contacted my friend who then gave me One And Only Paris Photography’s information. I had found my photographers and we were getting married in Paris!
It was truly that simple and dreamy. We then contacted the wedding planning firm Fete in France and they helped us coordinate every detail of our small intimate wedding aka planned elopement. They set us up with an amazing team of vendors. It was such a wonderful experience. No stress, no fuss.
Fete in France simply took care of everything. All we had to do was book our plane tickets and lodging and enjoy our wedding/honeymoon. To future brides, if you are a couple and do not desire the big wedding celebration I highly recommend doing something like we did here in Paris. A planned elopement with just the two of you simply screams romance. After all, Paris is the city of Love.”
