Day 01 of the Gers wedding of Willa & Freddie began at Platardon, a family home close to the village of Blaziert.
It was also my final wedding in France this year and one I was very much looking forward to.
Most of the weddings I photograph & film in France are civil or personal ceremonies but this one was a church wedding.
A church I have driven past many times as it’s spire and the hilltop village can be seen for miles around.
So to get things started, we began with a meeting at Willa’s parents pied a terre followed by a rehearsal at the church.
This was a good opp to see exactly how things would work including the arrival and departure of a very special wedding car.
Then it was back to Platardon for a relaxed couple only pre-wedding shoot before heading off to the nearby village of St Puy.
Chez Vous at St Puy was the selected venue for the evening meal involving B&G, parents, bridesmaids and groomsmen.
The setting was gorgeous, – outdoors, but covered by the old halle and beautifully lit.
I just did my usual thing of floating around in the background capturing the story as it unfolded.
The resulting pics will appear below within a few days, but for now, above, a short highlight slideshow.
Day 02, the actual wedding day now live and can be seen here.
