Don’t shoot the messenger but the holidays are going to be here before we know it and as winter brides are in the thick of planning, this Austrian celebration crafted by A Very Beloved Wedding is just what the doctor ordered. From the prettiest snow-filled landscapes to a candlelit palace and pretty pomegranate details, even the most ardent lovers of summer will find themselves dreaming of the coziness of winter.
Usually when we think of colorful, it goes hand in hand with whimsical or modern affairs but this inspiration is showcasing a different side to bold, bright hues. Backed by a dream team of vendors including design by Brooke Keegan, florals by Oak & The Owl and romantic gowns with a bit of an edge by Rime Arodaky, this shoot is showing just how elegant and classic a little pop of color can be. Everything just matched perfectly and fitted in this amazing background that is the Santa Ynez Valley.

Adesuwa and Nick are from London and picked the amazing Villa Ephrussi de Rothschild for their venue. The Villa Ephrussi is Cote d’Azur’s shining diamond, overlooking the Mediterranean Sea from its hill in Saint-Jean-Cap-Ferrat. Lavender&Rose took care of the planning and design and did it perfectly as they are used to. Wayne Riley declined the color palette of the wedding (light green and pink) for the design of the tables and florals at church. It was one of these very special summer days on the French Riviera, and the wedding ended with the warm summer breeze, that only the French Riviera can offer.

As we just launched the 4th edition of Greg Finck Workshop – which will be held between May 21-24th 2018 in Paris – I am excited to be sharing the editorial that we shot during the 3rd edition last May. We had decided to reinvent Alice in Wonderland fable, with the help of a dream team composed of Branco Prata, Rime Arodaky, Laetitia C., Camille Bonardi, Canigueral, T Bakes Atelier, Pascal Délé amongst others. The objective of Greg Finck Workshop being to always propose photoshoots that differentiate from the market, we wanted to land our own idea of Alice in Wonderland and the Queen of Heart. The world, your reality is ready to be explored and questioned.

Some personal work for once, with the maternity session of my wife Rime Arodaky, on the Amalfi Coast last August. Rime had been expecting since 5 months at that time, and we took the opportunity of an amazing sunset between Positano and Amalfi to shoot these few frames. Most of these photographs have been taken in the small village of Praiano, where we were staying. I can’t recommend enough the wonderful Hotel Onda Verde, that you will love by all means. Sipping a cocktail in the infinity pool with that breathtaking view is something you will never forget!
Darren&Rachael are originally from Scotland. After living a couple of years in Singapore, their love for Asia, and ultimately Bali, led them to choosing Uluwatu as their perfect destination for their wedding. After visiting Bali in 2013, they fell in love with this beautiful island instantly. Bali is named “The Island of the Gods” and it is easy to understand why: a tropical oasis, filled with culture and beauty. However, beauty is not only skin deep with Bali – it is engrained within: the Balinese people mirror the external beauty with their kindness, generosity and smiles.
