HI, I'M HELAINA!

An Elegant En-Vogue Wedding in the South of France

Mar 23, 2019

Hello lovely people! I am gradually getting the hang of this WordPress thing, so I’m going to blog a few of my favourite weddings ahead of the imminent launch of our brand new sparkly website, which will have happened by the time you read this!

Kicking things off with our first French wedding of the season last year and one we know will forever be one of our faves. The charming, oh-so-chic, intimate fairytale celebration of Karen and Zak, all the way from NYC.

When a bride tells me she wants ‘all blush everythaaang’, I am game. Anyone who knows me, is very aware that I have the biggest #blushcrush in all the land, and so Karen and Zak’s dusky pink affair at the most glorious luxury French chateau with just 35 guests, was a dream to plan and style.

It was super important to Karen and Zak that they create a celebration full of the most thoughtful, unique details, so bespoke signage was a must, along with divine little laser cut wooden place names, signature cocktails, our trademark antique frame photo booth and a wedding cake to die for, by the superstar baker that is Invitation au Delice. And can we just take a few moments to appreciate Karen’s glorious Lazaro gown!!? She’s like an elegant swan goddess!

The whole stunning occasion was captured impeccably by Aubree Lynn, who has now been marked as one of our fave shooters of all time. Her earthy editing style is just dreamy.

Get pinning, lovers!…
