I knew France was going to be incredible. It did not disappoint!

When Charlotte asked if I would shoot a wedding with her in France, it was kind of a no brainer.

Despite a lot of travelling and the earliest of starts, we finally arrived at Le Moulin de Chazotte the day before the wedding. We met Fi and Sam for the first time. They were SO welcoming and the loveliest of couples. We did a bit of a pre wedding shoot with them and it was gorgeous. We not only got to know them both better, but it was also a chance to explore the beautiful surroundings.

After a sneak peek at the wedding rehearsal, we headed back to our hotel in the beautiful French countryside, until finally it was the big day!

When we arrived on the wedding day, Fi and all her bridesmaids were making a start on preparations. One thing I didn’t expect is for the bridesmaids to be making their own bouquets! After gathering wild flowers from the surrounding fields, the girls sat outside in the sun and made the most beautiful, rustic bouquets I’ve ever seen! Such a lovely and personal touch to add to the wedding.

Once Fi and her bride tribe were ready, we all headed to the ceremony. Now, this was NOT your standard ceremony room. Oh no. I can’t even begin to describe how stunning it was! I think I’ll leave that for the photos to show.

After a little prank from the page boy who presented the couple with Haribo rings, the vows were exchanged and Fi and Sam were husband and wife!

The rest of the wedding was quite simply a dream come true.

I’d always wanted to photograph a wedding abroad, and to spend it with such lovely people was just amazing.

The day was concluded with sparklers and dancing, before everyone headed their separate ways.
