Letitcia & Judson   ♥   Paris, France

Did you have a lovely Valentine’s weekend? If you were far too busy with your beau to take a read of the blog, be sure to take a peek at the love heart heels and fluttering heart flats that I shared in the Saturday Shopping Edit, they’d be fabulous footwear for your wedding day (or just as an extra special treat for yourself!).

 

To start off the new week we’re in Paris – the self-proclaimed City of Love! If you’re newly engaged and have a weekend away or a holiday in the diary, why not contact a photographer at your destination and book in an engagement session like Letitcia and Judson’s in Paris?

 

What could be more romantic as a backdrop to an engagement shoot than the Eiffel Tower, or having a photographer capture the special moments of you wandering hand in hand along the sidewalk of the River Seine?

Fallon & Fleetwood   ♥   Paris, France

Photographer:   Annabelle Denmark Photography

 

Fallon and Fleetwood met at a friend’s barbecue in May 2007. A brief conversation about Fallon’s tattoos led to the pair discovering that they shared a love of motorcycles. By the end of the first week this darling duo were inseparable and planning a motorcycle ride to the Rocky Mountains together…

 

Fast-forward six years and Fleetwood performs the perfect surprise proposal for Fallon, seriously sweeping her off her feet. She of course said ‘Yes!’ and they both knew in this very instant that Paris was always a good idea for a destination wedding!

 

Paris held a special place in their hearts and they had previously talked about the City of Love as a destination wedding location. They didn’t even need to discuss the idea any further, the moment that they were engaged they just knew it was for them and who could blame them? Paris really is always a good idea.

 

The oh-so-talented photographer Annabelle Denmark tells us more about this cute couple’s proposal and their Parisian love story…

Worldwide Wedding Inspiration – Paris Is Always A Good Idea

Each month we jet off together to a faraway land to be inspired and intrigued by the sights and delights of a different destination in a feature called Worldwide Wedding Inspiration.

 

After four cities and hundreds of shows Fashion Week came to a close yesterday in Paris, leaving The City of Love fresh in many people’s minds. So we are hopping over the English Channel to one of the most romantic cities in the world today and whether this tempts you to tie the knot in pretty Paris or simply ignites your Parisian passion, we’ll be looking at some ways to add a little ooh, la, la to your big day!

 

Scenes from ‘Sex and the City’ when Carrie is ‘An American Girl in Paris’ sprang to mind when I started this feature. Shiny stiletto sandals, full ballerina midi skirts and delicate sugar plum shades ensured Carrie daintily danced across the Parisian streets – c’est chic!

 

 

Channel your inner Carrie and take inspiration from the effortless elegance of the Parisians by teaming classically designed dresses with a soft colour palette of muted greys, subtle blush shades, vintage rose gold and mild off-white tones.

 

Traditional Parisian café’s and the stylish sunlit streets conjure up creative direction for your wedding décor: starch white tablecloths, charming wrought iron seating, an abundance of tiny flickering tea lights in metallic candle holders and of course a sugary haze of pastel macaroons and tasteful French desserts.

 

Just like Miss Bradshaw and her iconic Timmy Woods Eiffel Tower bag (seen above – j’adore!), add understated references to Paris throughout your theme with vintage Paris postcards for your table names, or make famous architectural references such as the Eiffel Tower, Arc de Triomphe or the Moulin Rouge on your paper goods and partner with elegant gold calligraphy writing. Oh and not forgetting your very own Mr. Big, who of course should be as stylish as can be in a timeless Tux.

Rachael & Edgar   ♥   Paris, France

Photographer:   L’Amour de Paris

 

Where could be more romantic for an intimate elopement than Paris? These two lovebirds flew all the way from Los Angeles to the City of Love to tie-the-knot in a relaxed outdoor ceremony.

 

They then strolled through the city with Stacy from L’Amour de Paris as she perfectly captured the emotion of the day with the elegant, beautiful architecture of this stunning city as the backdrop. Rachael and Edgar opted for delicate details and a hint of vintage Parisian chic to complete their big day style.
