France – A Working Holiday

It finally came around – our first ever destination wedding! We could barely contain our excitement at the prospect of shooting in one of the most romantic settings we’ve ever seen – The Villa Ephrussi de Rothschild in St. Jean Cap Ferrat, France.

There are a couple of images from the wedding below but the upcoming blog post on Jil and Will’s fabulous (and we mean FABULOUS) wedding will do the honours properly.

Whilst on our way we thought it would be down right rude not to make a small holiday out of our journey down to the South of France. We kicked things off by driving down to some lovely photographer friends of ours, Pete and Laura Lawson and their adorable baby Albert who were holidaying in Pete’s parent’s house in the Burgundy region.

The house is beautiful and the landscape is stunning – the wine isn’t bad either!! :-D On arrival we were greeted with cheese, champagne and wine, a bed for the night inclusive of complimentary midnight feast macarons – immense! We had a great catch up and guided tour of the local Cave the next day for our first wine purchases of the holiday (we were actually very restrained)!

From the lovely Lawsons it was time to get prepped to shoot the wedding – nerves and excitement came in equal measure but it was seriously amazing on the day and we can’t thank Jil and Will enough for giving us the pleasure of photographing it all.

One photo is all you can see right now – the rest shall be revealed later, oh and of course a couple of shots of us precariously balanced in/around water to get the best shots during the proceedings.

We also shot alongside super talented cinematographer (and photo bomber) Aaron Jones of Reel Weddings for this one which was great fun.

After the wedding we retired to the incredible villa Les Karias in Cannes – having agreed to take some photos for the owner we got to know the place really well and didn’t want to leave – at all!!

We had this stunning view from one side and a sea view from the other.

We moved on into the centre of Cannes for a final day of exploring. The Hotel Oxford was a really cool and welcome resting place before the twelve hour drive back to Blighty.

AJ is somewhat tentative around olives, sometimes she likes them, sometimes it’s a big no!

    ‘Awesome’ is the only word!!! You can certainly tell that you two have such an affection for France – I suppose it has been second home for both of you for as long as you can remember! This has truly been an amazing trip, the shots are superb and I can’t wait to see more of the fairy tale wedding! I’m sure the owner of the villa will be blown away with the photographs!
