A wedding on the other side of the world

You can't put into words a wedding like this. For me it wasn't just a wedding, it was the whole experience - the trip to France, joining in the lead up preparations, sharing the growing excitement. Sarah and Andrew really opened their hearts to me, so much so that I felt less like a photographer for their wedding, and more like a lucky friend who was celebrating their wedding with them.

The setting was peaceful and stunning. The details were well planned and beautiful. The day was special and warm.

































I really loved the colours of the wedding. Non-traditional, but still extremely classy.













Sarah and Andrew used a champagne sword to open their bottles of genuine champagne (best champagne I've ever tasted). It's a spectacular method, and leave the bottles looking like this.











Radiant Sarah.













The food was Ah-mazing. I helped the wonderful Helen to make some of it. When I say help, I really mean stood in her kitchen sipping wine and chatted to Helen while she did the cooking.











An amazing wedding for a zillion reasons, and thank you Sarah and Andrew for daring to have crazy ideas that actually work!

We also did a photo shoot in Paris (cue photos at the Eiffel Tower), which will appear on the blog soon.

Oh Meaghan, your photos are absolutely STUNNING!
What a gorgeous setting, and each photo tells a story. They're not like any wedding photos I've seen. Bravo for your exquisite shoot in exquisite France. I'm so jealous, and would be happy to assist by carrying all your photo gear when you next shoot overseas. From a very proud Auntie. xx
