Inspiration: A Dreamy Vintage Inspired Styled Shoot

WeddingLight Events is thrilled to be sharing our first ever styled shoot! This was our first attempt at creating an inspirational bridal shoot for our lovely international brides and we are thrilled with the results. We certainly could not have achieved this outcome without our phenomenal team of vendors whom without their assistance, dedication and contribution would not have been possible.

It started with a simple idea of doing something with a vintage chic theme, which was realized with the addition of our friendMax Chaoul‘s stunning vintage inspired gowns. ​The Daisy gown is a 1920’s inspired look in a fluid low waisted satin design and a gorgeous embroidered lace top. The second is the Lana gown, which is a 1940’s inspired look in a empire cut with a romantic long sleeved crochet design. We then paired ethereal veils and romantic headpieces from Rhapsodie Paris, lovely artisanal (and ethically made) jewelry by Paulette à Bicyclette (yes, you’ve seen her on our blog before!) and whimsical florals by Edith of Une Fleur en Liberte in white and pastel peach and pink colors. To complete our models looks hairstylist, Lucie Letz and Los Angeles makeup artist, Melody Kennedy opted for one model with a bold look that included a daring pink lip and smoky eyes and the other model with a charming and natural look and playful curls. For the location we wanted to have a “Secret Garden” feel with all of its serenity and romance. We were delighted when a friend of our photographer allowed us to use his dreamy home, which is just location outside of Paris in the Parisian countryside. Everyone’s contribution was important, but without the amazing talent of our wonderful photographer, Olivier Lalin of WeddingLight Photography, this shoot would not have happened.

We certainly hope this inspires our beautiful brides to be! Keep checking the blog as we are in the midst of preparing for another shoot before the summer’s end.

Paris Event: “Diner en Blanc” at the Palais Royal

Paris is filled with fabulous events and things to do, especially during the summer time.
Yesterday, there was an amazing event called “Dîner en Blanc de Paris” or “Dinner in White in Paris.” It all started 25 years ago by François Pasquier and a handful of friends. Today, the event boasts a crowd of nearly 15,000! What exactly is this exclusive pop-up event? Well, thousands of people come dressed in white accompanied with their most elegant etiquette for a massive “chic picnic” in one of the city’s beautiful public spaces. The event is supposed to evoke the refinement and glamour of court society. The location is only given out at the very last minute, so its very secret for such a public affair. Every year a different spot is chosen, but has included: the Pont des Arts, the Eiffel Tower site, Place Vendôme, the Château de Versailles, the Esplanade de Notre-Dame, the Esplanade des Invalides, the periphery of the Place de l’Étoile, the Champs-Élysées, Place de la Concorde and this year: the lovely Palais Royal!
It doesn’t stop there either! “Dîner en Blanc” is actually an international event that takes place in close to 40 different locations throughout the world!
Did you miss out this year? Make sure you get an invitation for next year’s magical event!

Paris Elopement: Australians Nhu and Norman’s Bohemian Elopement

​Our Aussie couples always have so much style (and fun)! Nhu and Norman came from down under with their adorable 1-year old daughter to celebrate their elopement in Paris. They went all out with a lovely pink bohemian theme incorporating tons of pink florals and some fabulous large balloons for their photo session. The bride wore a beautiful, airy silk gown with a dreamy train, which she paired with glamorous pearled sandals. For her hair and makeup, she decided on a loose romantic chignon with a single bright pink peony and some baby’s breath and gorgeous pink lips to match.

The couple exchanged vows on a quiet cobblestoned street near Notre Dame officiated by our fabulous officiant, Igor. Amelia, who was dressed in a pretty white ruffled dress and darling floral crown to match her mother’s flowers, was there to toss some rose petals as confetti in celebration of her parents love. Following the ceremony, the adorable family traveled around our lovely city of love for some photos with our amazing photographer, Olivier before finishing their fun-filled day with a delicious meal at one of Paris’ famed restaurants.

Just before leaving, Nhu sent over this very thoughtful note to say thank you…

“Just wanted to drop you a brief email to say THANKS for everything! Our wedding was amazing and It was perfect for us! Olivier [photographer] was awesome and we can’t wait to see the pics!! Christina [babysitter] was also fantastic with Amelia! And Amelia loved her! Shame about the cherry blossom trees, but Olivier made it work! The quiet street we got married at was really cute and Igor [officiant] was great too! We loved his words Norman was very impressed in the end so as long as he is happy then we have both done a great job! Haha. But it was mainly all you! Thanks again for organising everything, we are both so happy with how everything turned out Everything was perfect.”

– Nhu & Norman and Amelia”

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Paris Elopement: Roxanne & Dennis’ Parc Monceau Ceremony

Roxanne and Dennis contacted us a few months ago to help them plan a small ceremony in Paris with their two teenage daughters. The lovely California family were traveling through Europe and were in London before having planned to pop over to Paris for the big Roland Garros tennis tournament. Their ceremony was schedule for the day before and after arriving from the train station, Roxanne was pampered by our fabulous hair and makeup team in their Paris apartment in the 1st arrondissement. Our wonderful florist handled the bride’s bouquet: a beautiful arrangement of vibrant pink peonies, cream and peach coloured roses and some soft greens to compliment. The couple and their two girls were then whisked away by our friendly car service to their ceremony location: Park Monceau. The intimate ceremony was held on a beautiful bridge overlooking the rest of the park and officiated by our amazing officiant, Igor. Then the group was off to tour the rest of the city with our incredible photographer, Olivier Lalin.
