A true love story always seems to have a great beginning, and this one was no exception. Having been born at opposite sides of the world, fate eventually brought these two lovebirds to Paris! Stealing flirty glances over their french grammar books and exchanging secret smiles as they learnt to speak their favourite language, it was only a matter of time before Marie-Claire & Luke fell in love. Fast forward to a few years later, they decided to celebrate their love story with an engagement session in the same place where it all began. Marie-Claire & Luke hired the help of a super-creative stylist and planner, Mary Lee Herrington of Forever & Ever Events, to design a day in Paris full of fun details, classic locations and glamorous vintage dresses. The lovely Kate Taylor helped with stunning hair & makeup, each perfectly complementing numerous outfit changes for different locations. We even payed homage to Audrey Hepburn by recreating a scene from Marie-Claire’s favourite film, Funny Face. We spent an amazing day wandering around, drinking hot chocolate, playing dress-up – it really could not have been any more perfect! You can see more of this stunning engagement shoot on Style Me Pretty’s Destination blog here. Thank you Marie-Claire, Luke, Mary and Kate for an incredible experience! xxx

 … crowds of people wait for me

… sea gulls scavenge, steal ice cream
