A romantic elopement to Paris by Olivier Lalin

Good Morning and what a week it has been, I have been busy juggling whilst I put to bed a non French Wedding Style but wedding project I have been working on.

There is something so wonderful about a romantic elopement to Paris, but when combined with a feminine floaty Monique L’Huillier dress, delicate pastel flowers and a photographic tour around the sights of Paris, my romance meter is full.

Jennifer and Donny, a couple from Louisiana, USA, came to Paris for their elopement. They choose to have an romantic and intimate ceremony, just the two of them, in the elegant and classic Parisian Chapelle Expiatoire.

Photographer Olivier Lalin from Wedding Light talks us through the day: “Everything looked just stunning from her Monique L’Huiller dress to her perfect bouquet of pink and white flowers. Afterwards, I took the couple through Paris for some wedding portraits, choosing to shoot at some great locations, such as Pont Alexandre III, the Jardin de Tuileries, the Lover’s Bridge, and all through the lovely cobbled stone streets of St. Germain des Pres, etc. Jennifer and Donny were so very nice to work with and such lovely people.”

I feel a trip to the flower market as I feel the need for some pastel flowers to emulate this romantic elopement to Paris.
