A love for all things French brought Marie-Claire and Luke together over 4 years ago, at a French language school in Paris. With Luke from Australia, and Marie-Claire from Puerto Rico and the States, a serene chateau nestled in Bergerac was the perfect choice for their wedding destination, considering their multi-continent families.
My first meeting with Marie-Claire and Luke was at their gorgeous engagement shoot in Paris. Paying homage to Funny Face’s Audrey Hepburn, amidst the vintage landscape of Paris , it was an absolute pleasure to shoot the most in love couple ever. When it came to shoot the wedding at the secluded, sylvan grounds of La Leotardie, I felt immediately transported back in time! The vows — an emotional Catholic ceremony — took place in a historic church in the nearby village of St Georges de Monclard, where the bride was escorted down the aisle by her brother, and her mother, the matron of honor.
You can see more of the elegant details (designed by Mary Lee Herrington Celebrations) — the miniature clay sculpture wedding favors; the Puerto Rican-inspired wedding cake (which was a family effort), and other personal, bespoke touches — in the Style Me Pretty feature, “French Wedding in the Countryside of Bergerac” (Do check it out!)
Meanwhile, here are my favorite captures of that day. Enjoy!

A touch of groom style… nothing beats an elegant bow tie and a great pair of shoes for men’s wedding attire.

Last summer I had a lovely invitation to photograph a dear friend’s wedding in Sicily. Their Sicilian event was held as part two of their celebrations, for all their Italian and other friends & family who couldn’t make it to the official wedding in Paris, myself included. D & P were the perfect hosts at an incredibly glamorous party, full of delicious food, elegant women in summer dresses and handsome men in sharp suits. Every so often, the deep tans, combined with the glitzy fashion and the typical southern European emotional flair reminded me of D&G’s recent campaigns – glamourous Sicily, that only those in the know will ever see. Emerald green seas, melting gelatos in giant brioche buns, warm welcomes and even warmer Sun, I came home with a big smile, bag full of film and a rather red “tan”. 🙂

I love a pop of colour, I love pastels, I even love neon, yes neon… but NOTHING beats a simple black and white image.
