Boho Spring Bride In Laure de Sagazan Gown: Anne & Matthieu

 In All, Boho, French, Real Wedding

Matthieu and Anne married in the French wedding venue La Dîme De Giverny and adopted a relaxed, bohemian style for the styling of their big day. Anne looked the epitome of a boho bride in her Laure de Sagazan wedding dress (that back!) and I adore the styling of their venue too – wooden vintage birdcages and simple vintage detailing.

What makes their wedding even more inspirational, special and unique though is their creative photos were captured in Monet’s garden!! Imagine that…

On our first visit to the wedding venue, we fell in love! The history of this 13th-century building (that was beautifully restored in 2014) with its authentic atmosphere was full of romance and definitely won us over.

I wanted to style my accessories in keeping with the bohemian style of our wedding so opted for flat, jewelled sandals from Dune in London.

My flowers were powdery pastels and I also chose a matching head wreath. Some of the flowers used were olive garlands, succulents and pale pink hydrangea.

Matthieu wore a three piece suit from Fursac and a sweet bow-tie from Colonel Mustard.

I was looking for a chic wedding dress with a bohemian and simple spirit. After several fittings with designers such as Rime Arodaky, Lora Folk and Delphine Manivet, I travelled to London and fell for this for this incredible Laure Sagazan gown.

I felt such emotion when I saw myself wearing it, that I realised, this was the one I wanted to wear to say YES to the man of my life.

The choice of our wedding photographer was a primary concern that we took with great care. After weeks of searching the internet, I had a favourite – Laila from Rock Your Love.

Laila captures candid shots that are authentic, full of poetry and love… From our first exchange, I was confident with our choice!! It was the perfect day and Laila even managed to reassure me when I stressed during the preparations.

For the decorations, I wanted to stay within the vintage and bohemian style so I used old books and a typewriter found in a flea market as the guestbook.

For the menu, I used an old frame from a garage sale in Avignon to create a bistro style menu – it was laid on the floor at the entrance to the reception room.

My mum also has a beautiful, wooden-aviary birdcage that I  absolutely wanted to use – so I used it for the table plan.

She also lent us metal lanterns that we placed in the church and in the courtyard of the reception venue to shine at night.

My best memory is when I entered the church on the arm of my dad to join my future husband – Mattheu looked so emotional, and in this moment I could feel all his love – it remains for me, one of the most beautiful moments.

If we could offer brides and grooms any advice we would say… stay yourself and do not be swayed. This is your day and you will never come back to this time, take your time and book early so you have a choice of suppliers, don’t prepare everything last minute.

Another important thing for us was the children – we had thought of everything! We rented a bouncy castle for them and organised with our babysitter a treasure hunt. They had lots of solid wood air games and I also made gaming notebooks to occupy them during the church ceremony.

Such a gorgeous wedding, congratulations Anne & Matthieu – we love your relaxed boho style and those shots in Monet’s garden. Wow!
