It was a wondeful wedding in South West of France with G+M
I am always happy to find beauty in wedding. My goal is to find connections between wonderful people and document how much love there is between them.
Gemma & Matt had an incredible wedding at Chateau de Lisse the 31 August 2020. It was a very warm and beautiful day. I love this special château in Lot-et-Garonne of South-West France. It’s a stunning 14th century castle, and local legend says that it once belonged to Joan of Arc’s brother!
G+M live in Dubai and their guests came from all over the world. When I first met Gemma & Matt on a skype I fell immediately in love with them. They have been great since the beginning until the end. At the end of their wedding, they even offer me some beautiful chocolate and a special thanks card. They were full of little attention with everybody around them. They could not bring their little dog, so they took a copy of him, that you will discover bellow 😉 I keep the surprise for you ! I even won an award at the WPJA ( from the Artistic Guild of Wedding Photojournalists) thanks to this adorable little girl 😉
Here their great feed-back ! Many thanks Gemma & Matt for being so amazing !
When we were looking for a photographer for our wedding, we were offered a list of people that our wedding planner had worked with previously that she could vouch for. Among the list were a few that really stood out, so at first it seemed like a difficult decision to make. However, when we looked at Isabelle’s website and previous wedding shoots, we knew she was the one for us. She has an amazing technical ability, but not only that- she managed to capture all the fun and emotions in her pictures and this is what we wanted for our day. We wanted to be able to look back at our wedding album and remember exactly how it had been.
When we met her and took some ‘test’ shots, she was lovely and warm, very quick to put us at ease and even had a good laugh with us when I could not take her direction properly! She was super patient with me when I kept ruining photos by laughing, and basically just let us be ourselves.
On the actual wedding day, she arrived on time and with the extra props we had kindly sourced for us. She immediately went to work, but not in an intrusive way. Her manner of ‘documenting’ the day through her photos was amazing, she was just in the background snapping away. Obviously we did some ‘posed’ and group shots, but they were fun and didn’t take up too much time as we wanted to enjoy our day and chat to our friends and family. She was honestly just amazing, and even stayed after the time we had originally booked her until, just so she could get some additional night time photos.
We are so happy with our photos and our wedding albums. The quality is wonderful and the process of selecting our favorite photos from the thousands she had taken was smooth and easy using the online gallery. We honestly think she was just amazing, and are happy to have made a friend too.
