Pastoral wedding between sea and mountains – Basque country – France
Basque-country is one of my favourite areas of the south-west of France. Although a lot of rain is pouring most of the year (definitely something you want to know if you plan to get married over there) this region has so much to offer. For instance, in St Jean de Luz you could admire the Atlantic ocean and just turn around to see the mountains and their snowy peaks! Basque-country is sitting at the very bottom of France so you’re a couple minutes from Spain if you’re having an irresistible Sangria craving! Ok let’s not get too cliché here and get back to our wedding.
I was so thrilled when Audrey & Philippe called me back after our first meeting to let me know they’d chosen me as their wedding photographer because we have the same humor, and they’re full of energy. Given the natural connection we felt instantly, I knew it would be easy to capture their playful personalities in a natural way! Let’s discover some of the photos of this rural wedding along with the Q&A with Audrey & Philippe!
The most memorable part of the day and why?
Our first look, because that’s when the first tears of joy fell and it was a moment for the two of us only.
Favorite image from the wedding and why?
When we are running during our couple session, the bride in sneakers, the groom holding the bouquet, both of us smiling – 100% natural – as we love! (And also the one where Philippe is behind me and makes me laughing).
If you could do it again, is there anything you would change?
We’d better manage our time and order an extra keg of beer! (Don’t underestimate hydration levels of your guests!)
What is something you would like to tell currently engaged couples about wedding planning?
This wedding is your wedding, do whatever you like, invite who you want, forget what could please your families but not you! This is your day!
Would you recommend us to another couple? Why or Why Not?
Off course! Beyond your artistic talent, you give priority to natural and spontaneous instants over posed and superficial. You were listening to us with goodwill all day long.
What is one thing you particularly enjoyed about working with us?
The immediate feeling we’ve had and which cannot be explained 🙂
What is one thing you think we could be better about?
We’re still thinking… :p
Anything else you would like us to know or other coupes to know?
Because how quickly the time flies during this day, enjoy every moment, smile, laugh, cry and soak in all the love you will receive! (and bride & groom wearing Stan Smith rocks!)
Thanks you for being a part of our lives on that day and for being able to amazingly capture our weding, and thank you for your help from the start.
