Venue: salle de fête in a local village near Limoges
Hair & Make-up: L'Instant Dune Nuit
Robe: created by Tessa Delpech
A city-center wedding. The bride and her two bridesmaids were preparing in a small apartment so it was quite crowded. I made most of my detail shots on the balcony...
After her hair and makeup were finished, Safina went to the room next door and reappeared completely dressed for the wedding. This was impressive but I needed to take reportage with her helpers. I took a deep breath and asked her to do it again with the girls around her.
I am so glad she agreed - as she stood still, one of the girls lifted the dress over her head and I took this shot. It perfectly captures one of the calmest and most serene brides I have ever met.
The picture below was taken in the old mairie of |Limoges. It is a very dramatic building - with no light at all - so I backlit the subjects on the balcony.
