CHERRY & PIERRE

Destination Wedding Photographer

The secluded French countryside was the perfect wedding destination for Cherry & Pierre’s wedding. Mirande, a small village in the Southwestern region of France, was built in the 13th century and is home to a stunning Gothic-style cathedral  the Eglise Sainte-Marie where Cherry & Pierre exchanged their wedding vows.

As Mirande is a small town, the couple were able to block off the street between the church and Pierre’s parents house for their cocktail, which included a traditional lion dance.

The wedding theme was centred around blending of their Chinese and French cultures. As French is known for their love affair of food, guests were treated to a menu designed with delicacies from Gers with a Chinese twist. Dining on blue lobster, foie gras followed by a selection of cheeses, it’s no wonder that the south west is the food capital of France.

Destination Wedding Photographer, Florent, talks about this French wedding …

The south west of France is one of my favourite places in the world! Not only because I was originally from there or the small medieval villages that you find along the way, but mostly because it is the French capital for gourmet food!

When Cherry and Pierre, both live in Hong Kong, inquired about my services for their destination wedding in Mirande – I knew straight away that this is going to be a massive celebration! The French  knows how to party and wedding usually starts around lunch time and doesn’t finish until the following morning.

True enough – Cherry & Pierre were able to block off the street between the church and Pierre’s parents house for their cocktail reception, which included a traditional lion dance.

Their wedding was centred about bringing the Chinese and French culture together, which was evident in the food they served to their guests. The menu was designed with delicacies from Gers but with a Chinese twist like foie gras with Sichuan pepper.
