Crazy wedding in Provence
This year, I started the wedding season as a second shooter, by following an excellent photographer, Loïc Legros, who invited me to shoot a crazy wedding in Provence. Loïc couldn’t appeal my curiosity better that the way he described that wedding: “It is going to be completely mad…”. Ok, I’m in!
If you happen to get married on the 1st of April, you will have to be really creative. People are expecting you to make some crazy jokes, and to surprise them. Melissa and Julien prepared some wacky tricks for their guests. Like having an almost naked man running and shooting while the preacher says: “speak now or forever hold your peace”. Or having a fake cake and smash it up. Paint your faces and bodies with black light…
Yes, for the first wedding of the year, it has been epic. But the other thing that I loved from that weekend, is the simplicity and the kindness from Melissa, Julien, and their friends. They absolutely love their two children, and, as a father, I love seeing that kids could witness their parents wedding. It’s a chance than just a few of us could experience.
Thank you Melissa and Julien for welcoming me in your great region, thank you Loïc for inviting me and le me shoot that awesome weddings. I will start my wedding season with plenty of good memories and a lot of energy.
Melissa and Julien: Where do I even start? Thank you Louis for capturing such beautiful, fun, emotional and crazy moments from our magical week-end wedding! I get to relive moments that seemed to have sped by at lightning speed! Thank you for supporting our (and our wedding party’s) craziness and I hope you had just as much fun as we did!
Venue: Château La Tour Vaucros, Provence, France
