Mégane and Maël are not newly wed and make a great family with their beautiful son Keylan. By the way, I am beginning this post with a picture of Keylan’s wonderful shoes with his dad’s flower in the buttonhole. You will see in the rest of this wedding post that Keylan had also a gorgeous suit for his parents’ wedding day.
Deirdre and Maurizio have been together for a really long time and did not need any wedding to show their love to each other. 2 wonderful children and a lovely family, that’s what I discover while talking with this family before the wedding. I was wonderfully welcomed in their home and all the wedding guests were incredibly nice to me. This wedding was to be a great moment of enjoying a simple yet wonderful family reunion with no stress or anything else like that. Enjoying this day peacefully was the most important things for the bride and groom and I love this wedding vision.
Marie and Evan will exchange their vows during a religious ceremony on next Saturday. I had the pleasure of meeting them for their engagement photo session in Saint Sulpice on the Geneva lake shore some weeks ago. I loved learning more about their couple and their wedding that is coming so soon and that I will have the pleasure to photograph in Fribourg. But before going to the wedding, let’s take some time to look at this wonderful couple in the nature on lake Geneva shore.
Elise and Antoine make a stunning and beautiful couple that you had discovered during their engagement session in Lausanne. Some days after the engagement session, it was time for the great moment with their wedding that I had the pleasure to document. In fact, Elise and Antoine’s wedding was done on two days, the first being the civil ceremony in Pully, while the scond day was a garden party organized by the groom’s parents for everyone to enjoy this great wedding.
Wedding civil ceremony in Pully
The meeting was in front of the Pully wedding room for the civil ceremony of Elise and Antoine. The ceremony was joyful and filled with emotions with Elise’s family coming from France for this event. Joy and tears, it was the perfect mix for a great ceremony and pictures.
Bubbles were waiting for the newly weds to get out of the wedding room for this magical moment in their couple life !
Touristic train in Lavaux: Lavaux Express
The bride and groom made a surprise to their guests so that they could have a nice idea of the Lavaux vineyard. This is with the small touristic train Lavaux Express that everyone got to the apero destination departing from Cully.
A small break was held to drink a glass of wine and enjoy the wonderful view over Lausanne, the Geneva lake and the Lavaux.
Apero: caveau Fischer St Amour, Chenaux
then, it was time to go back on the train Lavaux Express to reach the apero location in Chenaux where the view over the Lavaux region and Geneva lake was still breathtaking.
Of course, we enjoyed the wonderful scenery of the Lavaux vineyard to take some couple photos with beautiful sunlight. A gorgeous bride and a wonderful couple in love, there was nothing more needed for a wedding photographer to enjoy those moments of happiness.
Weddin reception : Café des Mousquines, Lausanne
It was time to go back down to Cully with the small Lavaux Express train and to Lausanne for the wedding reception held in the Café des Mousquines. A small apero was held before the guests went to the wedding reception room. The table decoration was done with finesse by Elise with special personal love quotes for each guest. That was a wonderful decoration that got everyone sharing their personal notes about love around the table.
Wedding Garden Party, Prangins
The day after, it was in Prangins that the wedding garden party was organized by the groom’s parents. As soon as you arrived on location, you could not ignore the garden party purpose! Everything was wonderfully organized so that everyone could enjoy the moment and celebrate this wonderful wedding. Children also got a wonderful time in this gorgeous garden, with music by Gerberito.

On the road, the storm just started. Hard to see something with such a downpour. I had prepared the umbrella for this photo shoot but I would have liked Mégane and Maël not to experiment their engagement session at Chillon castle under the pouring rain. Fortunately, while arriving to Chillon Castle, the storm stopped and after some minutes, all the humidity had dissipated. After-storm atmospheres are always strong and wonderful with a gorgeous light, as I had already seen it while photographing Christelle and Michaël some time ago for a couple photosession. This is how the engagement session got started. This wonderful couple breathes love so much, happy in life that easily translated into their photos. I had such a wonderful time with them both! I look forward to documenting their wedding in September in the Valais, Switzeland, and also meet their baby Keylan!
You already know the couple Brenda and Frédéric from their engagement session that was held in the Swiss Lavaux and on the shore of the Geneva Lake in Cully. On June 7th, it was their wedding day with a beautiful familiy wedding at La Sarraz Castel. I was greatly honored of accompanying this beautiful couple and make their wedding photos that will cross the Atlantic ocean to reach Colombia so that Brenda’s family can enjoy the wedding since they could not make the travel to Switzerland. I loved seeing them use Skype before and during the wedding ceremony so that Brenda’s family could accompy her during this wonderful moment.
