This fairytale started a few years ago when Carine, a French young woman, met Emil, a Danish gentleman. Cultural differences made their love stronger and the two decided to settle in Odense, Denmark.

Nevertheless, the couple chose to get married in France. They wanted to offer their guests, who were travelling from various countries for the wedding, the opportunity to discover the beauty of Carine’s birth country. They fell in love with Domaine de la Fougeraie, located near Tours, in the heart of the Loire Valley. An elegant and charming venue with its beautiful park and its 19th century castle.

Carine was relaxed on her big day, while her friends, mother and makeup artist were turning her into a real life princess.

In the meantime, Emil was putting on his suit with the help of his brother and sister.

Then came the first look. Carine came down the staircase of the castle before Emil’s wet eyes…

While their guests were arriving, we took some couple pictures with the bride and groom who were on cloud 9.

The outside ceremony was held in the park and was officiated by the lovers family members.

Before exchanging their vows, the two tasted the four elements – the sour, the bitter, the hot, and the sweet – four tastes symbolic of the elements of marriage.

The ceremony came to a close with Carine’s friends covering the song “Perfect” by Ed Sheeran.

The newlyweds then walked under French and Danish flags held by their guests.

Time to celebrate!

It’s been a real pleasure to capture Carine and Emil’s multicultural wedding at Domaine de la Fougeraie and to visit this beautiful area of France that is the Loire Valley and its magnificent castles.

Nous avons été ravis de notre choix ! Le feeling est tout de suite passé avec Marie, nous nous sommes sentis en confiance et avons apprécié son professionnalisme (devis clair, réponses rapides). Le jour J, accompagnée de Romain, elle a su capturer les moments clés, nous donner des directions quand nous en avions besoin et se faire discrète le reste du temps, et le fait qu’elle parle parfaitement anglais a bien aidé la communication avec nos invités étrangers. Nous avons reçu un aperçu des photos quelques jours seulement après le mariage et l’ensemble des photos en un temps record. Marie et Romain ont sur capturer les moments clés, l’émotion de la cérémonie et l’ensemble des invités durant le vin d’honneur. Nous la recommandons sans hésiter !

Carine V.
