Emma and Nicholas

Wednesday, September 14, 2011





























I think we can agree that Australian weddings seem to have a certain loveliness, but the combination of Aussies planning a French celebration is simply too spectacular to resist! Those darling bridesmaids dresses, the collection of patent leather shoes, the subtle nautical details and all those heavenly white flowers have me swooning!

The couple married in the Calvados region, and the crisp navy and white color scheme paid tribute to the region's sea-faring history. The bride and groom designed and printed the charming invitation suite themselves, whose striped bow was the perfect finishing flourish. Guests spent the week before the wedding at the Chateau du Mont Saint Maclou where they enjoyed the beauty of the estate and Normandy; Emma and her bridesmaids dressed together there before the ceremony, held at Saint Catherine Honfleur.

The bride wore a gown by Australian designer Henry Roth, royal blue pumps by Wittner and classic sapphire studs surrounded by a diamond halo. Those darling striped bridesmaids dresses came from Cue, another Aussie find, and the groom and his attendants wore custom made suits from William Cheng & Son, based in Hong Kong. Maids and groomsmen alike wore accessories from Witchery, while the stylish groom wore Hermès, and bouquets and boutonnieres of white roses and ranunculus from Autrefois Deauville completed the wedding party's classic looks.

After a traditional Catholic ceremony, guests fêted the couple's new marriage at Le Prieuré St Andre with Champagne and a magnificent Croquembouche cake. First spotted on Style Me Pretty, One and Only Paris Photography (the phenomenally talented duo behind the lens at this celebration) very generously allowed me to share these gorgeous images with you!


So tell me, are you craving a trip to France right this minute, or better still, Normandy nuptials?
