Chateau de Montsablé, Auvergne, France wedding - Ambre Peyrotty

Bérénice and Tim had a very simple and elegant wedding, outside a castle in Center France. They got legally married in Clermont-Ferrand, then we headed to the château, where we had a very emotional ceremony outside, followed by a balloon release with all their guests. We then headed to the woods to take couples pictures, and were greeted by thousand of purple flowers, making a great carpet for magical and faery pictures. We had a sunny, amazing and emotional day, filled with surprises and great memories. During sunset, we had a small session with the chateau’s swing, in front of the volcanoes chain of Auvergne. The surrounding forests were wearing their most golden colors and I could not resist but to take pictures of the flowers around.

Metz, France wedding - Ambre Peyrotty

Amandine and Eric got married in September, on a moody and foggy day. It was still and amazing day for those two lovebirds. They rented an amazing old car, and used it to travel around town to the different locations. They had a church ceremony in a very small town church, filled with paintings and an amazing light. We then headed to a nearby forest to take couples pictures. It was a very nice and not-so-cold day, with just a little bit of rain! Their first look was truly emotional, and the love between those two is magical. It was a very nice day!

Best of 2015 - Richard Skins

2015 you have been outstanding! I’ve been very lucky that I’ve met some truly inspiring couples that have made it a pleasure to photograph weddings the length & breadth of the country. From Claire & David’s misty wedding on the Cornwall coast to photographing the lovely Dan & Sarah’s wedding at Kingscote Barn; and especially my very close friends Simon & Jo’s wedding in my hometown, incredible!!!! I’ve also met some lovely people in the wedding industry that have helped me make my mind up that this is definitely what I want to do for the very considerable future! I have some absolutely amazing weddings lined up in 2016, I’m looking forward to taking everything I have learned this year to make sure every couple gets something special.

Chateau des Martinanches, Auvergne, France wedding - Ambre Peyrotty

Galina and Nicolas had a French-Russian wedding in Center France. Galina is from far Russia, and Nicolas from Auvergne. They both live in Paris but decided to get married in Nicolas’s childhood town. Their wedding was filled with emotions and great people. They had a very relaxed backyard cocktail with an amazing Russian-themed photobooth. The castle is located in the middle of amazing fields with a view, so during sunset we headed there to take pictures. Galina got ready at a friend’s place, and they organized custom Russian games for Nicolas to find her in the house. He had for example to call a perfect stranger and tell her he was going to marry Galina, and make the stranger say “congratulations”. It was the most difficult of the games but he managed it! The night was then filled with dances, games and laughter.

Campsite in Ardeche wedding - Ambre Peyrotty

Tim and Farrah organized their elopement in Ardèche last September. Coming from London, they fell in love with the beautiful sites and sights of the Gorges de l’Ardèche, so they decided to say “I do” in front of the river with only 16 of their closest friends (kids included!). Despite the heavy rain and the cold, they managed to get some sun for their vows exchange! It was a really emotional day. When Farrah saw Tim waiting for her, she started crying and only stopped 15 minutes after the end of the ceremony! We then headed to a flooded beach to take pictures in front of an iconic landmark: the Pont d’Arc. It was pouring rain and we were as wet as wet can be, but their love was stronger than everything else. It was a truly magical day!

Domaine de la tour de Rochefort, Auvergne, France wedding - Ambre Peyrotty

Charlyne and Alex met when they were teenagers, and never split up since then. They got married by the vicar who was taking care of Charlyne as she was a child. About 2 weeks before the wedding, during his bachelor party, Alex broke his leg, so he had to wear crutches all day long to support his plaster. But it didn’t stop him from walking down the aisle without them, despite the pain. It was a very emotional ceremony, since Alex saved the life of Charlyne’s dad 2 years before the wedding. We then headed to the venue and had an amazing cocktail overlooking the Auvergne volcanoes. Their couple session was shot during the very last moments of sun, in a field not too far away from the venue. It was a very sunny and beautiful day!

Grittenham Barn in Sussex - Christopher Ian Photography

Nicola and Ben were married at Grittenham Barn farm in West Sussex during a wonderful warm summers day. They really wanted to have lots of vintage and country styling to their wedding. Nicola is a designer and designed all the amazing bunting, barn decorations/balloons and all the outdoor & lawn games. Ben is also a photographer so it was an amazing honour to be asked to capture his wedding. The barn situated in West Sussex is a stunning, picturesque surroundings in the countryside, perfect for hosting a natural vintage wedding.

Nicola arrived in a stunning vintage car and the ceremony held in the barn with close friends and family and then off to have fun in the farms grounds and vineyards. Make sure to check out Bens awesome dance moves in a few of the portrait photos… total legend. I cannot wait to return to Grittenham barn in the future, enjoy.
