What a very stylish and beautiful wedding to photograph ! A&A live in the UK and so brought a lot of Englishness to their fabulous wedding at the Abbaye de Talloires on Lake Annecy. ‘A’ made a stunningly beautiful bride in her gorgeous Marie Laporte wedding dress with its delicate lace sleeves. Her 8 brilliant bridesmaids were on top form and the fun and laughter in the preparation room was just infectious and completely set the scene for an amazingly realaxed and joyous day.
STYLISH WEDDING – ABBAYE DE TALLOIRES
The groom and his groomsmen were also getting ready at the Abbaye – it’s always great when we can build time into the timeline to spend with the groom and his friends for the prep shots. This lot were having great fun getting ready and trying to get the hang of a half windsor which proved more difficult than expected ! We also had time for a quick photoshoot down by the lake with them all looking incredibly smart in their very English morning suits (love it !)
The church in Talloires is a beautiful one and when the priest in charge of the ceremony is a family member the wedding ceremony is an incredibly special one. The whole host of beautiful bridesmaids entered the church ahead of A and her father – and just how proud and happy does he look as he accompanied his beautiful daughter up the aisle ! A wonderful wedding service and then confetti greeted the happy couple as they left the church to start the celebrations. Whilst the guests strolled back to the Abbaye the very very very happy A&A were treated to a speedboat trip around Lake Annecy and arrived in style at the jetty in front of the Abbaye. Their wedding cocktail in the gardens of the Abbaye was a very classy occasion, and whilst people congratulated them, laughed, chatted and had fun the brilliant Jean Pierrre Verdolini Jazz band was providing the soundtrack for the afternoon. I think the cocktail in the gardens was even more enjoyable because it nearly didn’t happen, for days the weather forecast had been predicting heavy rain all day … but the rain stayed away … and several people remarked it was perfect karma. I left A&A as they headed into dinner in the marquee … the forecasted storm finally struck (hard) as I drove home.
