This past weekend I shot the 180th wedding of my career. The last 9 years have been a whirlwind of beautiful celebrations in exotic locations all over the world and Emma & Drew’s wedding was the perfect way to celebrate this milestone! When they booked me as their La Vue France Wedding Photographer last year, I was instantly excited to capture their relaxed Cognac farm wedding. Their families flew in from the US and Sweden and together with friends from all over the world, they celebrated their wedding weekend at La Vue, in style. Click here to see the very first shoot I did at La Vue France last year, as featured on Coco Wedding Venues.
La Vue France Wedding Photographer:
This was my third wedding at La Vue France this year, and Emma & Drew really made the day their own. After a relaxed morning of bridal & groom prep, we set up a sweet first look for the two of them. I love capturing first looks – it’s such a lovely way for my brides & grooms to have a few moments together, before the ceremony. We then captured some family portraits (a great way to free up time during the cocktail hour) and the ceremony took place shortly afterwards. Officiated by Emma’s best friend Meg, the ceremony was a beautiful celebration of their love, set in front of the gates leading into the vineyards at La Vue.
Luxury wedding at La Vue France:
The cocktail hour took place on the terrace, overlooking the vineyards and as the sun started setting over La Vue, we made the most of golden hour for their couple portraits. Dinner took place under the pergola, with many lovely toasts from guests (a Swedish tradition), filled with anecdotes about Emma & Drew and wonderful wishes for their future. Their first dance followed in the bistro and was the perfect end to a wonderful day, filled with so much love and laughter. I really enjoyed working with Josh and the team at La Vue this wedding season.
