Commanderie de Dormelles is in Paris suburb. Far from the capital crazy pace, Commanderie de Dormelles is a pretty venue, a beautiful wrapping to celebrate love and a wedding.
Aude and Xavier met me years ago, at the wedding of their friends, that was actually my first year as a wedding photographer then !
It’s always really enjoyable to be contacted, years later, by people who enjoy your work, but also your personality and presence, while you are doing a wedding documentary. And it’s even better when, years later, you officially meet them for their wedding, and have a super feeling with them, their love story, and the possibility you could document their celebration day !
I do remember that we met in a café near Père Lachaise in Paris, in February, while snow was falling on the city. Our conversation and laughs lighten up this grey parisian weekend.
I then came drove back in central France with a smile on my face, despite the craziness and mess of the snow on the parisian roads.
Here was the D day, and that’s at commanderie de Dormelles that I met again Aude and Xavier, to get ready for this awesome wedding day.
I will remember how calm the place was, with just a very few people being there with the couple. I will remember how scared we were by the weather (the week-end was on a violent storm alert), to finally ending up having a lovely weather, although very windy… I will remember the pretty ligh in the bedroom where the bride was getting ready.
I will remember the light on the barn at night, and the cold tickling my face at night fall. I will remember the sound of stones crackling beneath my feet, but also the kids running all around and bringing joy and happiness during the cocktail party.
I will remember also of these group of friends, that years don’t break apart, of unflatable dolphins that made everyone laugh so hard. But most of all, I will remember this awesome couple, so kind and caring for everyone with them on that day, vendors included.
This all took place thanks to the awesome work of Corinne GINFRAY, event coordinator (and wedding planner)
Let me take you with me, at la Commanderie de Dormelles, to celebrate the wedding of Aude and Xavier 🙂
