Happy hump day lovelies, today we are heading off to breathtaking Provence for a sun-filled wedding at Le Clos Saint Estève. Our bride Victoria chose a bright and sunny wedding theme that perfectly matched their beautiful wedding venue and the amazing weather that Provence has to offer.
Provence with it’s beautiful coastline, stunning scenery and amazing weather (not forgetting those famous lavender fields of course) means it’s a go-to area for destination weddings.
Are you planning a destination wedding? Having an experienced wedding planner on hand to help you plan your dream wedding can be a huge help and take much of the planning stress away from you, especially when planning from afar. Victoria and Alasdair did just that and hired Stephanie Fayolle of Weddings of Excellence in Provence.
We shall now hand you over to photographer Kerry Morgan who will be guiding us through Victoria and Alasdair’s sun filled outdoor wedding in Provence…“Friends and family travelled from all over the world to share their celebrations. Every detail was perfectly planned by Wedding Planner Stephanie Fayolle from Weddings of Excellence in Provence.”
“Victoria’s colour scheme was bright and sunny and the guys wore tailor made yellow chinos from Clements and Church to complement the theme.”
“Victoria and Alasdair had a wonderful, sun filled outdoor ceremony in the gardens of Le Clos Saint Estève, a private house in Provence.”
“I like to shoot weddings in a very natural way, I shoot for happiness! But I like to mix this with beautifully arranged group images. I want my clients to look like they have jumped straight off a page in a magazine.”
“My “Vanity Fair” style group portraits are something I enjoy creating and my clients love. This cool shot of the wedding party by the pool is typical of this style. Relaxed and elegant.”
“Guests were treated to a relaxed drinks reception drenched in warm sunshine. Cocktails were served in the adjoining bar area while canapes were passed around.”
“For those that really needed to quench their thirst, a lemonade station was set up – perfect for 35 degree heat! Beautiful parasols were available for shade whenever it was required.”
“The Troubadours provided the entertainment throughout the day. They played subtle ambient music during the cocktail hour and then a much livelier set when the party had got going. They walked table to table during the meal and got everyone singing and dancing.”
“Before dinner, Victoria, Alasdair and I went for a 15-minute stroll to capture a few images of the two of them. I had walked around earlier in the day and thought the pretty apple orchard and winding road next to Le Clos Saint Estève would be a lovely place and the light would be just right. The hour before sunset is such a magic time to shoot.”
“It had already been an amazing day with Victoria and Alasdair. But now it was time for any formalities to be over and for the party to begin. Wow, what a party it was. I love photographing people having a blast, it’s such fun. The guests danced into the night and Ollie the DJ kept the dance floor packed.”
Huge congratulations to Victoria and Alasdair from all of us here at FWS.
