Domaine Saint Germain Wedding

Domaine Saint Germain Wedding – Sam & Jen’s incredible day!


Anyone having a Domaine Saint Germain Wedding has picked one of the most heavenly places on earth.  It’s a very special spot.  In the middle of the French countryside near the pretty town of Sommieres. Surrounded by olive groves and vineyards with views across to Pic Saint Loup. A place to completely relax, with comfortable modern accommodation and a lovely vibe.  The stunning grounds include an infinity pool which takes in those views to die for.

The scene was set for Sam and Jen’s Domaine Saint Germain Wedding! I was really excited for them.  Friends and family had flown in from all over the world. When I shoot a wedding my number one goal is to produce a set of images that will take my couples back to that day.  A wedding day goes past in a blink of an eye and when it’s all over, all you want is to do it again.  So I hope that my pictures in some way can transport my clients back there.  That’s why 90% of what I shoot is completely natural and unposed.  My couples can just have an amazing day without being bossed around by someone with their own agenda.  Sure, we pause for a few images of the two of you and some family groups but these are shot quickly and with minimal fuss.

The day started with Sam’s preparations…

The amazing Ray Thatcher was conducting the ceremony. He always makes it so special and personal. I love working with him and his wife Cherry.

Wedding ceremony at Domaine Saint Germain

It was pretty breezy during the ceremony. Ray very sensibly asked the couple to swap sides, so Jen wasn’t battling the wind and her hair during their vows.

If i shoot a group, I want it to look so stylish and elegant. I loved using the parasols that Jen had provided for guests to shelter from the strong sun in the south of France.

At the end of the drinks reception we took 15 minutes to make these beautiful pictures of Sam and Jen.
I choose gentle direction, as opposed to anything cheesy. I still want my portraits to have a very natural feel.

The olive grove was a great place to shoot in. I waited until the sunlight was soft and flattering.
