Coralie & André International Wedding inManoir de la Garde
Coralie & André’s international wedding
After nine months in Barcelona, I was really excited about going back to Lyon. What a better time than coming to photograph the beautiful and international wedding of Coralie & André. They met in Paris when André came from Brazil for his studies. They’ve been together for a long time. Their families have both visited Brazil and France. Coralie & André’s wedding was the perfect moment to bring families and friends together from different corners of the world. Love was the common point between everyone!
A Wedding in Manoir de la Garde
Manoir de la Garde is the perfect combination between an amazing view and a beautiful historical manor surrounded by nature. The Manoir de la Garde dates back to 1643. You will love its rustic style and carefully curated gardens. Inside the manor the decoration is still the same, it looks like time never passed. The different environments in Manoir de la Garde, the garden, the old winery, the backyard, are perfect to celebrate your big day however you want!
The wedding day!
I had the fortune of being present during the civil ceremony two days before, it was the best moment to get to know their families and friends. I also got to capture the memories of this first step in their lives!
On Saturday, Coralie got ready at her parents’ house, the place where she grew up in Jarnioux. Her best friends and grandparents were there to accompany her and make the morning even more exciting. Later on, she arrived at the church where André was waiting for her. André’s family and best friends came from Brazil to be there with him. Also, C&A’s friends came from different countries to accompany them, it was amazing to see how love can be an excuse to see again dear friends and to remember old times!
After a ceremony full of laughs, we went directly to the Manoir de la Garde. The guests started to arrive and in the meantime, Coralie, André and I, escaped to take some portraits. The light was perfect, the golden field and the interior of the manor looked amazing, it was the best moment for C&A to relax and have an intimate moment after they said YES!
Coralie & André celebrated their day with an outdoor cocktail in the garden and a dinner in the old winery, the perfect space to start the party. An international wedding is nothing without friends and families learning each other’s languages and translating the speeches. C&A couldn’t stop laughing and sometimes wiping tears after their dearest ones’ sweet words and wishes. Their friends prepared for them a sparkler entrance, this was the magical touch for a day full of love and caipirinhas!
