Intimate Wedding in the Lavender Fields of Valensole
When Jessica & David contacted me for their wedding : I was over the moon. They were from California and wanted to get married in the lavender fields of Valensole. What they exactly wanted was an intimate wedding: just the two of them, a celebrant for a secular ceremony and myself.
Imagine a picturesque landscape painted in shades of purple and green, as far as the eye can see, providing the perfect backdrop for a celebration of love. This is where Jessica and David got married in June during the lavender season.
My name is Sylvia Calmet. I am a destination wedding photographer in Provence. Sometimes during the year: I photograph intimate and small weddings. I love it when the lavender fields are your choice.
Welcome on this website where I write articles about my work as a photographer in Aix en Provence, families and weddings.
Intimate wedding in Provence:
As the sun dipped below the horizon, casting a warm, golden glow over the fields, the couple exchanged vows surrounded by the fragrant blossoms of lavender. Pierre from Love actually was their celebrant for this magical moment. The emotions of the moment made the ceremony truly magical. You can see tears of joy in my pictures. The emotions were intense.
The choice of the lavender fields for this celebration was not arbitrary. The vibrant colors of the fields provided an intimate setting that allowed the couple to connect with nature and each other in a unique and meaningful way. Intimate wedding are very different from another wedding and I am not speaking of the budget. Intimate wedding are very intimate and emotional. Whether you are just the 2 of you, like those 2, or with a close group of family and friends: it’s something different.
But let’s get back to David & Jessica! The vows have been exchanged: it’s time for more couple photos.
Couple photos in the Lavender fields of Valensole:
Intimate wedding is the place for couple photos. After their ceremony, it’s the perfect place for a couple’s session worthy of the name. It’s a way to share joy and nature’s beauty. Those memories will last for a lifetime.
In Valensole what I really love, if you know the “plateau“ a little bit, is that you can have different spots to take pictures. Wheat mingles with lavender and the golden color is perfect with the purple shades.
Lavender season in the South of France:
You will find lavender fields from June to August in the South of France. But here in Valensole, as the farmers cut the lavender for the harvest, the season is much shorter. Lavender season is about a month from June the 15th to July the 15th.
