When organising any kind of event, the first question you ask yourself is: where to start?
So, when young engaged couples want to organise their wedding alone, they are plagued with questions and doubts. "You think I should start looking for my dress?"; "Who should we get for the caterer?"; "With or without a photographer?"; "Damn, but first we have to choose a venue!
To avoid getting lost in a sea of information, it is important to do things in order and without rushing.
This is why, before looking for a caterer, venue, dress, DJ or florist, it is important that you take the time to assess your desires and priorities. Indeed, each couple does not attach the same importance to the different services for their wedding. Some will focus on a majestic venue, others on a high quality caterer, a breathtaking decoration or a renowned music group. It is up to you to see what you really want to prioritise in order to create a wedding that suits you and your desires.
Once you have clarified this, you need to think about how many people you want to invite. The number of guests can help you to target criteria for the choice of your venue and to clarify your budget. The budget is a very important step that should be established before you start the first preparations.
Once you have thought about, discussed and clarified all of these points, you can begin your wedding preparations by selecting venues according to your list of criteria.
Crazy about nature and especially the ocean, we imagined and developed the universe of our shoot, full of poetry, authentic and light, retracing a warm and long summer day of our two lovers, ending in apotheosis with their intimate wedding ceremony and dinner at the water's edge.
Little by little, we built our team by proposing the project to people carefully selected to remain in the desired universe. Our wish was to call only on people who were involved, developing their business locally between the Basque Country, the Landes and the Bordeaux region. Thus, our team of 18 people, we have detailed all the steps of this beautiful day so that the rendering and the work of each person is highlighted and that the desired atmosphere is there.
To savour the mildness of the morning, the first part took place on the fine sand of Cenitz beach in Guéthary. Adele & Quentin enjoyed a moment together, feeling the sun on their skin, taking time to read and enjoy a swim in the cool ocean.
The second part took place in a beautiful Biarritz villa to get ready, choosing a natural beauty for Adele, sublimating her in the flowing dress of Eléonore Pauc
Back on the beautiful beach, our couple and their closest friends took advantage of the fabulous surroundings to take photos in the soft lights, before committing to each other during their loving and joyful water ceremony. The day ended with a beautiful dinner with the sunset accompanying them.
