A Natural + Organic Wedding in France

  • Come beside me to the former Cognac estate, Pillac, France for that wedding of childhood sweethearts, who works in marketing and, a commissioned officer within the RAF. They put on the four-day extravaganza, centered around their marriage on 1 June 2019, by having an organic and natural style inspired by the rural French Manoir setting.

    "When we sat down making big decisions for the wedding day, one of these was that people weren't likely to have a videographer. Instead, we desired to invest in photos that told the storyline of your day, every bit as good as a video. We also wanted photos that will stand the exam of time. We researched plenty of journalistic and storytelling-style photographers – that's whenever we came across Paul."

    "He acted just as much more than someone capturing our day – he ensured everything ran smoothly. We didn't even notice him playing around taking pictures – complete ninja! After the marriage, we received highlights in our photos in the form of a slideshow with some music. He even sent us a bottle of bubbly to enjoy whenever we watched them for that first time. Touches like this made everything more special."

    I adore the key-hole eliminate at the back and also the pretty lace cap-sleeves. For shoes, she selected elegant ankle-strap pumps.

    "I was 'window shopping' online on designer websites, as I usually do, and found my shoes. I tried to convince myself I didn’t require a designer pair but I couldn't have them out of my head. I love the neutral color and also the scallop detail."

    dusty blue bridesmaid dresses were worn through the bridesmaid.

    Both girls wore fresh flowers in their hair, styled into loose, elegant buns, for any charming, organic look.

    "Our music and entertainment for that day were supplied by Hicksville Swing. They were amazing, providing music for the ceremony, serenading guests during canapés, and carrying out a live set within the evening." Click

    Suiting the summer weather, Andrew selected chino trousers worn having a blue suit jacket, a smart waistcoat, and a contrasting raspberry pink tie.

    The couple met once they were both seventeen and Andrew proposed following a six-month tour within the Middle East.

    "We met during our school years. It was throughout a time when our friends were having eighteenth kids' birthday parties and met at one of these. We were friends for a while, only seeing one another in big friendship groups, until Andy asked if I would walk his dog, Bonnie, with him. I love dogs, and that he wasn't bad either, so obviously said yes!"

    "We chose France as we like the country. It was our first holiday together whenever we were eighteen and we still return most years for skiing as well as for short breaks therefore it just felt right."

    During the ceremony, Melissa's uncle read an extract from her favorite book, 'A Man Called Ove' by Fredrick Backman then Andrew's dad browse the poem, 'What I Learned About Love, I Learned From My Dog'.

    "We are lucky enough to possess a friend who is a DJ, therefore we pulled inside a favor there and that he had us covered before the early hours."

    "Each part of your day was so special but if we had to choose we probably would the evening, whenever we got to invest the most time with our family and friends. We had great weather, so for most of the night as we weren't dancing within the lovely barn I was outside within the courtyard chatting and popping within the photo booth."
