The carefree bride in Provence - Domaine des Grillons

Provence is probably one of the most beautiful and one of my favorite regions. I love how being a wedding photographer in France helps me discover little gems. Not only in terms of location but also in terms of persons. I've met Morgane of  Big Day Events and  Violette Tannenbaum few months ago as we worked together for the Love Etc. wedding fair. We clicked instantaneously. I love how Morgane is able to turn a vision into reality, how she is able to reflect elegance and simplicity, raw and authenticity into her styling. And I'm in love with Violette's dresses, soft, delicate, modern and romantic at the same time. After we met, we knew we wanted to work together on some projects. When Morgane told me about this gorgeous location at Domaine des grillons, I couldn't believe how beautiful it was. Surrounded by fields of poppies, olive trees, woods, and hills, it was the perfect place for this bridal inspiration. Actually Provence might just be the perfect place for a wedding in France to my opinion...

When I saw the poppy fields, it reminded me of Monet's painting : Coquelicots. 

We wanted to create something romantic but quite wild at the same time as the location entices you to do. An elegant bride but carefree at the same time, you know. Here is how we turned our vision into reality. Would love to hear your thoughts about it folks !

I consider myself lucky to be a wedding photographer in France because this country has so much to offer for the eyes, every countryside is a feast for my heart and eyes. I must say that I have a soft spot for weddings in Provence. Provence always amazes me with its gorgeous light and pretty pastel color palette.

This styled wedding for Light workshop was no exception. When you add an incredible team of creatives to this gorgeous background, it can only be amazing.

The bride is wearing a bespoke dress created by the ever-so talented Rime Arodaky. And the set up was created by the magic wedding planner duo Jennifer and Kerry at Lavender and Rose. They really did magic on that day as it was so so windy, eveything was blown away by the wind, but they still managed to create this gorgeous outdoor ceremony setting with the help of Laëtitia, florist (one of the best I know) who created an amazing cascading bouquet with Eucalyptus and Lunaria and the decoration of the stairs.

As for the location, I completely fell head over heels for this place: 

Domaines de Patras. A little paradise nestled between olive trees and lavender fields, surrounded with horses and donkeys; it's a place where you feel at peace. Kéty and Eric, husband and wife and owners of this gorgeous Domaines will make you feel at home and believe me, you'd never want to leave! If you're planning on getting married in Provence and looking for the perfect place, look no further, this is the place where you want to be.
