Vintage Wedding | Grand Hôtel du Lac | Vevey

Sometimes things just come together in perfect harmony; like Vilde and Matthieu’s love story, their wedding day fell into place, piece by piece and ended up with the perfect day.
When I first met Vilde, she had a super-organised binder with everything she wanted for her special day, including her dress which inspired everything else. It was an exceptional Pronovia’s design with a feather bodice (Manuel Mota for Pronovias, Primor), transforming Vilde into a swan princess! And it warranted some special photos with her very own James Bond.

We took extra time on the wedding day to shoot Vilde and Matthieu’s couple photos before the ceremony – when they were still fresh – the result was some really special images of the two of them.

Free to relax into the rest of the day, Vilde and Matthieu were married in the magnificent Nôtre Dame de Vevey and then enjoyed an apéro at the Grand Hôtel du Lac who provided a truly individual service as always.

Although the heartfelt speeches were in Norwegian, it was impossible not to become involved in the emotion of the day, everyone was swept away by a couple who were so much in love. I dock my hat to Matthieu who serenaded his new wife with Nat King Cole as the party got started!

Vilde and Matt, may your life together be filled with fairytale moments like this day, forever and ever…
