Avec l’amour de la belle France – Robe de Mariée Vintage

Avec l’amour de la belle France – Robe de Mariée Vintage

A Wedding Made in Heaven?

Once in a while we receive a client’s wedding photos which just blow us away.  In the case of Celine’s wedding, we were scooped off our feet and dropped into deepest 1920′s France in one enormous gust!  Wow, if ever there was a ‘wish we were there’ wedding, then this 1920′s themed wedding is it. Especially as I sit here writing about it in Abington on a cold Scottish winter afternoon.

Celine and Pierre were married in the summer of 2011 in a village called “Saint Just” between the cities of Nîmes and Montpellier in the “Languedoc” region of France, on Celine’s families’ land. We were absolutely thrilled to see Celine wearing our dress ‘Clara’, as she had ordered the dress using our ‘mail order’ service and we had never seen her actually wear it.

Celine came to see us early in 2011 when we visited London on one of our ‘Roadshow’ trips. She had enquired to see if we ever came to France, but we had to tell her that the nearest we unfortunately would be, was London. Determined to see the dress, Celine and her mother booked an appointment at the ‘Roadshow’, jumped on a plane, and made their way to London. When the time for the appointment came and Celine stepped through the door we knew the dress would suit her: she looked like she had stepped straight out the 1920′s. However, due to the distance, she made it clear that she could not continually travel to London for appointments, and was only interested in the dress if we could supply it by ‘Mail-Order’. Having supplied dresses using this method dozens of times to destinations all over the world, we were able to convince Celine that distance would not be a problem.

Six months later, and ‘Clara’ made her French debut. And a more beautiful bride could not have worn her on the day. The sun shone as expected, and Celine, Pierre, their family and friends had a day to remember. Magnifique!

The celebrations were photographed by a wonderfully creative photographer Nicolas Chauveau. We had never come across his work, but since receiving Celine’s images we have gone back to look at his blog on a number of occasions. It’s well worth checking out his stunning photography for ideas for your own wedding.

Celine I loved the originality and unique allure of the creations of this designer, ability to adapt to our needs: flight times late in London, their attempts to talk French, the wine that accompanied my first fitting ever, their proposal to mediate with the creative Scottish headdress, the regularity and the approval of our exchanges.
Everything was perfect: the quality of the dress, fabrics, fine embroideries they did to my measurements and according to my wishes. The expedition of the dress was made in France with great care.
I wish all the brides to be treated as I was.

We hope that if a 1920′s themed wedding is part of your own plans, then Celine and Pierre’s wedding photos have given you plenty of ideas.   It certainly inspired us.
