Weddings & Lifestyles with a Pinch of Ethics




Set in the Lot Valley, South West France, between a private lake, rustic barn and a medieval hill-top village, this shoot was designed to showcase the talents of our fabulous, close team of luxury wedding professionals and to inspire couples looking for a beautiful, boho wedding style in South West France as well as further afield.

Love, Coralberry's Production Designer, Guillaume Bernard, brought in gorgeous new design pieces for the occasion to inspire this year's couples, such as the metre-wide crystal chandelier hung in the woods for our couple's first dance, the vintage rosewood & bronze cutlery & the hanging brushed bronze lanterns.

Floral designer, Le Coeur Sauvage, selected popular blooms for the upcoming 2017 season, notably King Protea and Ranunculus, keeping tones deep and dusky to suit current trends whilst complementing Saša's beautifully dramatic photography style.

As a first-time bride (albeit a fake one!) I found myself in the best hands with Paris/Bordeaux based Laura Cawte. Having just returned from three days of intensive industry meetings in Milan, Laura did a truly incredible job styling my parched hair and hiding the tiredness on my face. She even had time to paint my nails. She really does deserve her place as our n°1 hair and make-up professional in France.

UK based wedding dress supplier, Bridal Indulgence, kindly donated my beautiful dress for the day. Owner, Kerri, hand picks every dress in her gorgeous showroom, set on an old farm in the Hampshire countryside (coincidentally where my grandfather worked in the 1950s!). Fittings are booked on a personal basis and Kerri expertly guides you through the process of finding your perfect dress.

Chloebelles Cake Boutique provided a delicious semi-naked wedding cake for our dessert table which we coupled with our local artisan pâtissière’s hand crafted macarons in the shoot’s theme colours, mini merangues and traditional French dragées (sugared almonds) for an authentic post-dinner snacking bar for those with a sweet tooth.

All this was beautifully captured by Serbia-based photographer, Saša Adamović, who flew in especially for the shoot.
