Yesterday we rang in the new year with our first real wedding, Conor and Emily’s intimate and elegant destination wedding in France.

It was a day that was planned with chic style and thoughtful touches, and while not everything went quite to plan, the chateau garden wedding was beautiful, refined and romantic.

Yesterday’s gorgeous photographs were by Brian of French Grey Photography and today’s atmospheric film comes from talented duo, Anais & Mayeul of BKT Films.

Emily and Conor hadn’t booked a videographer due to their budget. But just a day before they travelled to Dordogne, they found out that they’d won a competition they’d entered, for which Emily had written two poems about why they’d chosen to marry in France.

As it would have it  Anais & Mayeul felt like old friends who’d always meant to be there.

Capturing beautiful speeches, last minute shuffles, funny incidents (like when the ring nearly didn’t go on!) and tear-jerking vows.

Let’s just say, we’re almost as glad as Conor and Emily that their wonderful French wedding was captured on film!

Isn’t it lovely! Such a sweet speech from Conor, and I love Emily’s readiness with the tissue to hand for the vows (that’d be me!)

Don’t forget to look at the rest of this fabulous wedding, and read the couple’s insights into putting it all together.

Thanks so much to BKT Films, and of course the gorgeous Conor and Emily for sharing their wedding day with us.
