Gordes elopement wedding
An intimate wedding in Gordes
Around La Bastide de Gordes
For this elopement in France, specifically in Provence at La Bastide de Gordes, Kristin & Jody wanted to have intimate but natural photographs. This couple from Houston, Texas came to France to celebrate an “Elopement Wedding” and asked me to be their photographer after seeing an article in a famous US blog.
We met at the beautiful and luxurious hotel “La Bastide de Gordes”, and walked around the little village, exploring all the little cobblestone streets.
Then we went to a monastery a few miles away to bless the rings. There was a magical atmosphere, an important ceremony with monks that had just finished and there was a strong smell of incense.
We ended our photo trip in the backcountry and found a field of olive trees to take portrait photos.
Congratulations to Kristin & Jody, and thank you for your trust
Kind words from the bride and groom :
We couldn’t be happier with our decision to work with Sylvain to photograph our wedding day. We highly recommend him!
My wife and I were legally married in the United States and went to Provence for an intimate ceremony for the two of us. We wanted a photographer who could document our day but also add to our experience as he would be the only other person involved. Sylvain filled this role spectacularly and made our day more joyful.
Our meeting started when Sylvain contacted us to find out our needs and style. He took the time to understand what type of images we wanted and not to settle for a “standard style”.
On the day of the event, he arrived early and scouted locations near our hotel. We then spent four hours with him on the property and around the area. I’m not usually comfortable having my picture taken, but I felt very comfortable with his process. He was prepared with clear instructions on where we should position ourselves and pose for the best photos. He was also very supportive throughout the day.
Finally, Sylvain was exceptionally dedicated when the church we wanted to use for our ceremony was closed. He drove us out of the way for 30 minutes so we could take pictures in a monastery. He remained very professional and handled the situation with a smile.
Oh, and did I mention that he returned the photos (both color and black and white) to us within a few days (that’s days, not months as usual).
OK, that’s great, but how were the photos? Simply beautiful. They fit the style we wanted and were a good mix of serious/intimacy, playfulness and art. We are happy to share some of the photos.
Kristin & Jody
