With the feet in the sand on the island of Porquerolles

As lovers of the outdoors Claudia and Sylvain dreamed of a wedding on the beach. Although the sunny French Riviera (Cote d’Azur) is known for it’s beaches and coastline, very few weddings are actually held on a beach because of noise and time limitations. They did manage to find the perfect solution though by having their wedding on the island of Porquerolles on one of the remote beaches. Let’s be honest, who doesn’t love going to a location like that?!

With the feet in the sand

As lovers of the outdoors Claudia and Sylvain dreamed of a wedding on the beach. Although the sunny French Riviera (Cote d’Azur) is known for it’s beaches and coastline, very few weddings are actually held on a beach because of noise and time limitations. They managed to find the perfect solution though by having their wedding on the island of Porquerolles on one of the remote beaches. Let’s be honest, who doesn’t love going to a location like that?!

They contacted us and immediately had tons of great ideas ranging from drones high up, arriving by boat, walking through the water, a wedding on the beach, and up to photo sessions under the water. Yes, you could say they love adventure so it’s nice when kindred spirits find one another!

So the adventure began to organize a wedding on a remote island and the the end result was fantastic![/vc_column_text][vc_empty_space][dt_photos_masonry padding=”10″ column_width=”900″ columns=”1″ category=”claudia-preps”][vc_empty_space][vc_column_text]The last picture above of Sylvain getting ready was taken by my second photographer Blaise Fiedler.

Because of their love of the water the location for the First Look was a no brainer![/vc_column_text][vc_empty_space][dt_photos_masonry padding=”10″ column_width=”900″ columns=”1″ category=”claudia-first-look”][vc_empty_space][vc_column_text]Although Sylvain didn’t say much at the beginning of the ceremony, his expressions said it all![/vc_column_text][vc_empty_space][dt_photos_masonry padding=”10″ column_width=”900″ columns=”1″ category=”claudia-church”][vc_empty_space][vc_column_text]… and now time for the fun to begin![/vc_column_text][vc_empty_space][dt_photos_masonry padding=”10″ column_width=”900″ columns=”1″ category=”claudia-fun”][vc_empty_space][vc_column_text]One of the most important moment for Claudia & Sylvain was the original arrival by boat![/vc_column_text][vc_empty_space][dt_photos_masonry padding=”10″ column_width=”900″ columns=”1″ category=”claudia-boat”][vc_empty_space][vc_column_text]Their password protected wedding gallery can be found here.

Robin is the main photographer, ice-cream lover, full of energy, and is quite simply not capable of sitting down and doing nothing. When he's not out with his camera he's with his family and two kids, busy with outdoor sports, exploring the beautiful French Riviera and the Provence, or trying to rock a baby back to sleep again in the middle of the night.
