Pierre + Macarena
Le Poire Sur Vie, France
5 August 2023
Boho Style Wedding in a Private Villa in France.
Terracota and Burgundy were the tones along dry and fresh flowers with a beautiful ceremony full of meaningful traditions between Chilean and French families and friends.
When Macarena and Pierre contacted me telling me if I can travel to France to be their wedding photographer I said "Fuck YEAH!" , I couldn't believe that they were happy to flight me over Europe from NZ for such important role.
They met in NZ during their backpacking trip, in the most cinematic way. They were working in a kiwi farm, and when they hands touched while they were packing the kiwis they felt that magic connection straight away.
After living in a campervan travelling around New Zealand were they love grows. Pierre decided to propose to Macarena with the views of the South Island in the background and she happily accept the proposal!
Pierre message me secretly to ask me if I was happy to travel to Nelson for an engagement photoshoot and I travel down south to met them and I stayed with them for 3 days.
We shared amazing meals togethers and hours of talking, and I knew that it would be a wonderful wedding because their love is so powerful!.
Macarena its an artist, dancer and actress, full of creativity and personality that brings the hype to the calm and kind Pierre who is always whiling to do anything for her. Both passionate about life and travel, food and art. Put up a whole event for their wedding day in France.
Macarena was in charge of the designe and she created beautiful stands of flowers, arches, macrame backdrops for photos and Pierre and his family prepared the land on their farm for the Wedding, the tent, tables, dance floor and the best food that I ever tried! along the WINE AND CHEESE (omg DA BEST).
The wedding dress was designe for Macarena and made by hand by Angelique, a French designer friend of Pierre and Macarena who also had the privilege to met.
They had a fire show!! and French traditions during the whole night so it was one of the best weddings Ive attended in this 8 years of working in weddings.
I was involve in the 4 day wedding celebration and was such a nice experience, to be able to share and met all the family and friends.
I will always be so grateful for this wonderful couple who trust on me for capture everything on their wedding day.
Love you guys! xx
