When the groom and ushers take the stage! We had our last wedding yesterday and we’ve had some really great events this summer, from around the world, with sweet, kind and fun groups of people! Have a great weekend everyone!
Happy Saturday everyone... maybe you’ve been busy wedding planning, trying on dresses, or maybe shopping for fabulous shoes? These are some of my favorites, by @rachelsimpsonshoes
, so chic and elegant, matched perfectly by the interiors of the epitome of fine art wedding elegance, @chateauladurantie
😍 If you are getting married at this stunning chateau I’d love to hear from you!
Chateau La Durantie. One of my favourite venues, so elegant and chic with the most beautiful (and light!) interiors. Yesterday I found out our @chateauladurantie
editorial shoot will be featured on @frenchweddingstyle
very soon, yay! And I had an enquiry from a bride getting married at this beautiful chateau too. It was all about Durantie yesterday! 😍
During the ceremony... there is so much love and happiness in this wedding. Every photo I see makes me smile, or my heart melt, or cry (of happiness!) We feel so lucky to be part of such special moments, how can we not love our jobs?!
There is nothing quite like the beauty of a bride on her wedding day 💕 Beautiful scan by @carmencitalab
The bride squad in front of this picturesque chateau
And off they go! It’s important to choose an interesting, beautiful location for your preparations. We’re lucky to be spoilt with so many picturesque places in South of France and loved this charming chateau!
Such beautiful feedback, which has made my day 😍 You guys are the sweetest! 😘 #Repost @cwtry
You want to know why I was gone for a whole month?? Let me show you a little bit why... #rhezacynthia
literally fell out of bed when I got this email, left me speechless until rheza has to knock some sense out of me, was so taken aback with the beauty of all things captured by @katylunsfordphotography
we miss you dearly! Hopefully will meet you sooner than expected! Thank you and thank you for capturing this special moment for us, we are eternally grateful.
She is ready... the final minutes before heading to the ceremony are one of the most intense moments of the day...
Happy birthday to beautiful bride Rion (and her gorgeous family!) 😘 It was such an honor to photograph this wedding in the Charente back in the summer. There’s something so special about weddings when the couple already have children 😊 I love photographing families and children too so this was a double whammy of beautiful fun for me! 😍
The bride is ready... the morning prep are perfect for these beautiful portraits...
The Bride’s preparation. This is one of my favorite images of the season! I love how Mark captured the actions: all the bridesmaids taking care of their friend and the flower girls looking in the background. I also love the composition, the texture, the colors, in this beautiful chateau. If you need a photographer who can capture beautifully composed natural photographs, full of emotions, look no further!
Talking about friends having fun... when the boys get ready! We start a new real wedding feature with a fantastic group. It was such a pleasure to plan and photograph this day, thank you Pippa and Rob! Hope you’re all having a fun weekend!
A tree-lined avenue at a chateau... what could be more French? 😍 Just sent a very exciting email to these two, hope they have some champagne in the fridge! 🍾🥂💕
The wedding season starts to slow down but I still have a lot of work to do to close an amazing year. I believe I have never worked so hard, I do it for you who follow my work and also for all my married couple of today and tomorrow. Be sure that I will always continue to give the best of myself, to give you the best.
Friends having fun! It’s Friday, have a fun weekend everyone!
Beautiful, simple, modern outdoor ceremony set-up for a small, intimate wedding in the gardens of @chateaudelacouronne
in the Charente region of South West France 🇫🇷 Having your wedding outdoors is one of the best things about marrying in France 😊☀️
One more from this part of Cynthia & Rheza’s honeymoon shoot... so much love ❤️ It was a bit like the bridal prep photos on a wedding day, with a hint of tasteful boudoir... but with the groom there too. Not sure what to call it?! 😝 At beautiful Chateau @grandbarrail
with scans by @carmencitalab
Because they are so important to you, Mark ensures to take lots of photos of your guests. So you have all the people and details that made your day when you look back at your wedding.
Aren’t these two the most adorable couple? 😍 So precious to capture these sweet moments for Cynthia & Rheza on their St Emilion honeymoon shoot 💕 @grandbarrail
Cynthia & Rheza’s honeymoon shoot started with some beautiful intimate photos in their stunning chateau hotel room. How special to have images that capture that magical connection you feel as newly-weds 😍
Sunset walk... We love the golden light, it’s the perfect time for a little time away, just the two of you, to get some magical shots.
Getting married at a fairytale Chateau in France is always a good idea 😍 This is the beautiful @chateaudelacouronne
, one of my favourites, stunning inside and out, and easily accessible from Bordeaux airport 😊
You may now kiss the bride! Newlywed kiss framed in this picturesque scenery!
Another favourite from @cwtry
’s gorgeous honeymoon shoot in beautiful St Emilion... loved this shoot so much, (especially that floaty dress 😍), can’t wait to share the full set of images very soon! Happy weekend everyone! (Shot on my #mamiya645
which is a bit of a beast, but the results are beautiful!)
If all brides could please get ready in a room with an epic chandelier, that would be great, thanks 😆
The precious help from the bridesmaids... We’ve been blessed with so many wonderful weddings this summer and we are delighted to present you a new one. The lovely Taragh and Tristan had a Franco-Irish wedding in South West France last August.
While we’re on the subject of that exquisite @lilaaccessories_
veil... 😍 A bit different and darker than my usual style... but I couldn’t not use the stunning iconic staircase at @fetchampark
I am soooo in love with this St Emilion honeymoon shoot, and aren’t these two just the most gorgeous couple? 💕
Happy October everyone! It started off feeling very autumnal here in France this morning... but now we are back to blue skies and sunshine! 😆 I’m almost ready to embrace cosy jumpers and log fires... but not just yet! Here’s one if my favourite autumnal images from a gorgeous shoot at @holmfirth_vineyard @holmfirthwine
Loved this wild bouquet by @libertylaneflowers
so much! 😍
First dance captured with the analogue camera. We love the texture and the emphasis on this gorgeous bride...
It’s not everyday that you get a full rainbow on your wedding day!!
There is so much happiness on a wedding day and that’s why we love our jobs so much! Heather and Geoff was definitely filles with joy, it was so beautiful to witness!
So much happening on this one :)! Just after speeches every one was crying and hugging their neighbor:)!! Planing @countryweddingsinfrance
Utterly stunning wedding today at @chateaudesaintloup
, despite dodging the rain all day, and having to move the ceremony and cocktail inside... thankfully the weather cleared for just long enough... 😊 Congratulations Tina & Samuel, you were amazing!
We are still enjoying warm summer temperatures here, and it’s the perfect time for a little trip for a pre or post wedding shoot, or even an elopement in the amazing scenery!... On this thought, we wish you a lovely Sunday!
Spending time with this lovely couple was great to get to know them, hear all about their big day plans and visiting their venue to find out the best spots to photograph. It’s also a great bonus to feel more comfortable in front of the camera on D day!
A close up of my gorgeous new USB drives - I am so thrilled with the detail of my calligraphy logo, often the delicate lettering is lost on something so small, but here it is just perfect! 😍 Huge thanks @usbmemorydirect
for the b aurifie USBs and @niceplume
for the exquisite calligraphy! 😘
We are still fully in our 2018 wedding season until end of October and it’s been filled with wonderful couples in amazing locations! Our 2019 season is shaping up more nice nicely and we’ve had the pleasure to meet some of our gorgeous couples! Here are Ellie and Matt getting married in the family home in South West France next August. It’s going to be very picturesque! Can’t wait for their big day already!! We can’t say it enough, thank you so much for choosing us!!!
So in love with my new engraved wooden USBs from @usbmemorydirect
😍 Check out the blog for my review 😊
We love the organic texture that the film photography provides. Mark mixes both analogue and digital photography at each wedding.
Wonderful venue in Dordogne, le château Charmant. Have you chosen yours for next years?
