From Jessica Smith, the Photographer: 

“We were inspired to create a shoot that celebrated the beauty of the private and meaningful moments a bride gets to herself in the early morning before her wedding. Gillian, our amazing stylist, and I are both married and have been a part of many beautiful wedding celebrations, so for us, we really wanted brides to see how special it can be when there is time carved out to just soak in these sacred quiet moments of getting ready on your own and the beauty of that with no rushing or pressure. The rest of the day will include so many exciting things; your new husband, your best friends, dancing, cake, your family, but this moment? This moment is just for you. Savor it. Bask in all your feminine glory and be proud of the amazing journey you have been on to get here. You deserve it.”

From Thomas, the photographer: 

“If you’re searching for a special and quiet venue, Cindy and Ludwig’s venue was a haven of peace in the heart of Provence, the Domaine des Bruguières. The complicity of Cindy and Ludwig is something very special that you can feel upon meeting them. More than just lovers, they represent the best version of couples goals. They are best friends and are always looking at each other with that deep fire in the eyes. We started with their preparation at the venue. This was the time for Cindy to relax and enjoy a moment with her best friends. At the same time, a few steps away, Ludwig was also having fun with his friends, and especially Quentin who took care of the groom’s shoe preparation. Then the emotional ceremony took place between the olive trees where laughter and tears filled the atmosphere.   This wedding takes a very special space in my heart for the beauty of the venue, the amazing complicity of the bride and groom, the love from their families and friends, and the entire day and night that we spent outdoors!”

From Tatyana Chaiko, the Photographer:

“This editorial was all about natural and minimalistic style. We really felt like creating pictures that would represent our vision of how the modern bride looks. For us, it is all about the details – very elegant, but still accurate – to keep the main focus on the beauty of the bride. Each detail was picked very carefully from the jewelry and silk dresses to the cutlery and clean calligraphy set. To make the story more personal, we chose marine-themes for the whole styling. Sea-shell earrings by MATIÈRE 79 and pieces of coral were beautifully paired with the lightest silk dress by Cathy Telle, which floats in the air just like sea foam. Golden cutlery and pearl rings reminded us of the sea treasures. Gorgeous bouquets by Happy Doll Weddings in pastel shades of pink, blue, and an elegant touch of pearl gold added more airiness to the picture. Hair & make-up style was created by Irene Syzikova with the thought to make it look like the bride made it herself – with a light and elegant touch, a bit messy, but still beautiful. Perfect skin-tone with just a bit of blush and natural waves or classic bun – everything to keep the main attention to the bride. The last detail to bring the whole picture together was the stationery set by Anya Tsymbal, which was made on a designer paper with rough edges and sloppy strokes of blue oil paint.”
