Wedding | Reiko & Baptiste ~ Paris, Je t’aime

I was lucky enough to be back in France last month for the beautiful wedding of Reiko and Baptiste, which took place in Paris.  Having already had their official wedding in Japan, Reiko and Baptiste wanted a second celebration to take place surrounded by Baptiste’s family and friends in France. So they did just that.

Reiko got ready at the beautiful Plaza Athénée, an amazing 5* hotel just moments away from the Champs-Élysées and a glimpse of the Eiffel Tower.  It was Paris Fashion Week so there were lots of well dressed people in town, not least Reiko who looked gorgeous in her custom-made ’60s lace dress complete with pink Miu Miu heels. We then hopped in a cab and went across town to L’Auberge du Bonheur, a beautiful restaurant in the heart of the Bois de Boulogne park.

It was a beautiful day and evening, and the weather held to allow us to get some gorgeously lit, natural portraits in the park before heading in for dinner, which of course was incredible.

To Reiko & Baptiste ~ Thanks so much to you both for having me as your photographer.  I loved getting to know you both and you were an absolute pleasure to shoot.

I feel that there’s just one thing left to say… Vive la France!

    Jodie, these are fantastic. I've visited the Plaza Athenee before and it's quite a place.
