Saint-Paul-de Vence is a picturesque and charming village, nestled in the heart of Provence, between the sea and the mountains. It is an ideal place to celebrate an authentic and emotional wedding, like the one of Claire and Loic, that I had the pleasure to photograph.
When I met Claire and Loic, I was immediately seduced by their complicity and their joie de vivre. They decided to get married in Saint-Paul-de Vence, Claire's native village, because they love its historical heritage and artistic atmosphere.
On the D-day, they prepared themselves in a beautiful village house, decorated with taste and simplicity. They then joined their guests at the town hall, where they exchanged their vows with emotion and tenderness. Then, they walked through the cobblestone streets of the village, under the applause and congratulations of passers-by, to celebrate their love in the beautiful collegiate church of Saint Paul. I was able to capture spontaneous and joyful moments, which reflect their personality and their love.
The reception was held in an estate with a breathtaking view of the surrounding hills. The decoration was rural and elegant, with fresh flowers and olive branches. The meal was delicious and convivial, with local specialties and quality wines. The evening continued in a warm and festive atmosphere with music, dancing and laughter.
This wedding was for me a beautiful experience, both professionally and personally. I was touched by the complicity and generosity of Claire and Loic, as well as by the beauty and charm of Saint-Paul-de Vence. I thank them for trusting me and allowing me to share this unique moment with them.
After this experience, they renewed the experience with a second photo session a few weeks after their union. They chose to wear their wedding outfits at the castle of Mouans-Sartoux, a 16th century building in the heart of a large park. I was able to immortalize them in this majestic and romantic setting, which shows their happiness and their complicity.
I invite you to discover below an extract of the photographs of their wedding in Saint-Paul-de Vence, which illustrate the magic and the emotion of this unforgettable day.
