I loved photographing this romantic Chateau de Massillan wedding in the heart of Provence. Chateau de Massillan is a beautiful chateau with relaxed vibes. It comes with a huge parc – so we found a great variety of photo ops to choose from. Around sunset we took a strolll to a line of cypress trees that are so typical for Provence. It’s been my second time in the chateau photographing a wedding so i was beyond exciting to return again.

Rebecca & Tristan flew in from London, Uk with their family and friends to celebrate their wedding in the heart of Provence. The couple made this luxury hotel, which dates back to the 16th century, home for the weekend. Their laid back wedding reception was held under the summer sky in the intimate castle courtyard. The couple exchanged their vows in the nearby church of Uchaux, which was nothing but super sweet. It was a perfect summer day celebration with happy vibes and lots of laughter. British certainly know how to exchange some decent banter that made everyone laugh. Looking forward to returning to Massillan soon again.

‘We chose “Make You Feel My Love” by Bob Dylan, interpreted by Adele for my ‘walking down the aisle song’. It is a song that we both love. When we planned our wedding, we imagined how it would actually feel like to be there. This song brought together all our hopes and how we envisioned our emotions to be that day.

 

We were not following any rules. There was no wedding dance. I did not throw the bridal bouquet. Doing what felt right for us, was the only mantra we went for. For us it was important that the wedding would be a personal and intimate celebration to the fullest extent. Two friends held our ceremony in the garden of the hotel. The whole wedding weekend from Friday evening to Sunday afternoon took place at the chateau, outdoors, which made it very relaxing. We never left the hotel grounds. Overall, we wanted an elegant, but very uncomplicated weekend. Both of us hoped for our guests to relax and enjoy the weekend. Putting aside any pressure on ourselves was important. We were relaxed and extremely happy. Rather than being nervous, we were laughing all along.

 

We wanted our wedding to be a reflection of who we really are and of what we truly like. In every dish served, in every song  played, we wanted our guests to feel “us” and for it all to make sense, but in a very unpretentious way.

 

A good photographer was probably the most important thing for us. We wanted natural pictures that would document the full weekend and capture the little things. Looking at the pictures now is almost like watching a movie, allowing us the relive the weekend. We absolutely adore the pictures and couldn’t be any happier with Chris’s work.’ Mia & Sebi

‘We met skydiving. Not quite in the sky but at a skydiving competition and we hit it off pretty much straight away. Matt proposed just over 4 years after we met when we were on holiday in Mauritius. He surprised me by hiring a catamaran for the day. We sailed around some islands of the coast of Mauritius. While drinking champagne in the afternoon, he popped the question.

We wanted to get married in France. We fell in love with the French culture, particularly the cuisine and try to spend as much time as possible exploring France, when living there. Our families also come from all over the world… UK, Ireland, South Africa, Israel so we wanted a beautiful place for our families to spend time together.

 

Since we met skydiving, we planned an aerobatic display. It took months of planning to get the necessary air space closures to perform the stunt display at the wedding. We were meant to have 2 planes. Due to the weather they had to switch to an aircraft better suited to high winds and cloudy conditions. Everyone loved the performance. We had considered skydiving into the wedding but Clara didn’t want to mess up her hair! A group from the bridal party including Matt & Clara jumped at the nearby airfield on Monday after the wedding.

 

 KIND WORDS

 

Chris is amazing! We fell in love with her pictures and style when we saw her featured on a wedding blog and were so excited to learn she was free for our wedding date. She has loads of energy and her artistic vision is incredible. We absolutely love our wedding photos and we can’t stop looking at them and it’s such a joy to share them with our friends and family. The images are so beautiful and even though we had pretty challenging conditions (think gale force winds and thunderstorms) we still got fantastic photos taken in stunning lighting. She really captured the little moments and emotion of our wedding day which was exactly what we wanted from our photographer and we’ll be able to cherish those memories for the rest of our lives. Thank you so much.’
