Who said that a civil wedding wasn't aesthetic ?


While all couples hire a photographer for their religious weddings, only a handful do for their civil ones - and wrongly so ! The civil wedding is the moment when you say YES for life. And if you're lucky enough to do it in a beautiful town hall like the one I'm about to show you in the 8th district of Paris, it's well worth the effort! If you are still not convinced, let me go through all the process so you can have a better idea of what booking a photographer for your civil wedding looks like.

The bride grand entrance


It's after all the guests and the groom have settled into the hall that the bride arrives on the arm of her mother. This moment is certainly my favorite, because it's so full of emotion. Before the two women have even entered the room, tears are already streaming down the mother's face as she is about to give her daughter's hand to her future husband. Then comes the groom's first look at his wife, a moment out of time!

We notice the thousands of stars in his eyes.

The moment they say YES


After listening to the mayor's speech, it's time to say "I do" for life and sign the official papers alongside the groomsmen and bridesmaids.

Time for family pictures !


After so many emotions, it's time to immortalize this moment with each member of the family and also with the mayor !

The grand exit


The bride and groom finally leave the town hall, preceded by their guests, who are waiting for them not with petals but with bubbles ! So 2023 ! It's also the time for a group photo.

Photo shoot for the bride & groom


It's time for us to let my creativity flow with the wedding shoot ! We first took possession of the town hall before heading out into the streets of Paris. You'll notice that a new 4-legged individual invited himself onto the photos!
