I’ve waited months for this wedding to take place and at first I’ve tried to imagine how Marco and Virginie would convince me with every detail. Obvious, I was seduced by their location – the charming house from the medieval town of Uzés. Keeping this in my mind, I like showing a bit of the terrific weeding destination spot selected by the bride. So, I’ve discovered those ancient surroundings made for vintage lovers like me. Wondering along the narrow streets with my camera I wanted to catch the flair of those ancient arcades and the smooth light that covered the outdoor terraces.
Also, following the smooth light, I got inside the house. Virginie took on the white dress; her sister and her friends were there to help her. In the meantime, Marco stayed in the middle of his close friends until they made him look like a prince. After preparations, the bride went to church in this chic, red and old-fashioned Citroen 2CV that was so hard to forget. Most certainly, from the car’s window the happy bride saw Marco waiting for her next to friends and family. They came in the house of God, this moment being of course immortalized. During the religious ceremony, many people shared smiles and create a warm and lovely ambience. When all went outside at the end, I got this special feeling because two guitarists started the party and the newlyweds danced while everybody exploded with joy.
Later on the ceremony, the couple staged the wedding reception in the big garden of the house ringed by plane trees and a marvelous view perfect for portraits. Soon after the cocktails, everyone was busy sticking photos in the album and exchanging memories. So, the party began and the guests shouted as hard as possible their table number, I remember that table number two was called out so loudly. Besides drinks and dancing, everyone had a lot of fun and this remain fresh in my mind and pictures. One way or another, the night came very fast and the scenes of the big party were colored by the glowing candles, sparkling fireworks and, in the end, with the macarons cake.
I felt a huge sensation of happiness around me, I hope that these photos show the passion and love between the newlyweds.
