Hugo & Paul

555 + 1000’s.

Two numbers that spring to mind in regard to Hugo & Paul’s Domaine du Foulon wedding.

The first number is the altitude marker I saw on the way up to the Domaine near Greolieres in the hills above Nice.

It’s a spectacular winding drive up from Tourettes-sur-Loup where I was staying and Hugo spent a lot of his childhood.

The marker post was by the side of the road at just about the same height as the venue unseen in the distance.

The 1000’s we’ll get to…

So a laid back ‘Meet, Greet & Eat’ (and drink) affair took place at an outdoor restaurant in Greolieres the evening before (a few pics below) and then the main event on the Saturday at Domaine du Foulon.

I don’t think you can beat an outdoor wedding for atmosphere and for a photographer it offers so much more scope. A few challenges, but overall, more scope.

So there it was, – an outdoor ceremony (conducted by Miguel who also did the last ceremony I covered there), drinks, meal and dancing.

Oh and the band, Mister Kanish, just superb.

Finally, what were the 1000’s?

Fireflies. I took a final long exposure night shot of the venue below the hills and a starlit sky. 1000’s of fireflies were blinking on and off as I did so. One even made it in the car back to my hotel, lighting up every time we hit a dark area. This is the stuff that makes for memories.
