Remember this Grace Kelly bride and her classically beautiful nuptials?

I’m so thrilled to welcome Nathalie and Emmanuel back onto Bridal Musings today as I share their day after shoot. On their first day as husband and wife they went down to the beach in their finery for a desert picnic to celebrate.

These stunning images by Marion Heurteboust Photography evoke exotic dreams filled with sand dunes, deconstructed tepees, tulle, ribbon and crashing waves.

It’s almost hard to believe these photos were taken in France. They have such an otherworldly feel to them…

Such captivating images aren’t they?

The perfect way to start the day…and finish it.

I’m sure I’ll be dreaming of sand dunes and beach picnics with my love tonight!

Many thanks to Marion Heurteboust for sharing your incredible photography with us, it’s always such a pleasure featuring your work.

California brides/couples ~ Marion is visiting in March 2012, so get in touch if you’d like a gorgeous engagement/anniversary/bridal shoot with French flair!
