I said it before and I’ll say it again, I think this was possibly the most perfect autumn wedding ever! However stunning the setting of the Abbaye de Talloires I think you have to be very brave to organise a late autumn wedding, especially if you are planning the wedding cocktail in the grounds … but wow does fortune favour the brave. When I arrived to start the preparation photos with the wonderful L there was light grey cloud but as she was getting into her STUNNING (yes stunning, just look at the detailing !!! ) Danilo Fedrighi wedding dress the sky was azure blue. A very romantic first look on the steps of the Abbaye followed by a series of couple shots in the rich autumn colours of the Abbaye gardens and it was time to head off to the church in Pringy and the official part of the day, the ceremony led by a close family friend.


I’m often asked my opinion about “First Looks” – every single couple is different. Some want to keep that first look for the moment the church doors open and the Bride smiles her away down the aisle, some want a precious quiet moment just the two of them before the hustle and bustle of the day starts and they are carried away in the excitement and rushing round being congratulated by guests. As I said before I think it is a very personal decision BUT I will say that if you do decide to arrange a First Look it will in no way take away from that magic moment as you see each other for the first time at the start of your wedding ceremony, … in fact you get two magical memories !

Dear L& O – I cannot believe that it is almready a full year since your wonderfully wonderfully happy Wedding Day at the Abbaye de Talloires, I have very fond memories of your magical day. I hope that you have had an absolutely amazing first year together. All the very best to you both for an equally wonderful second year together and thank you again for choosing me as your wedding photographer.  Very very best wishes , Gill xx
