When a French and Indian marries, the wedding is different as well. For Céline & Vinod, an Indian wedding wasn’t enough, they had to have a French one as well. Set in a castle in Auvergne, this wedding merges two very different families into one, creating a big amalgam of laughter and celebration. Thanks Muratet Photographie for the submission of work.
The family of Vinod came from all around the earth for this wonderful wedding. It took place in the Château de Miremont, a village of Miremont, with a XII century old castle.With a simple hairdo, Céline was getting her makeup done in the powder room.
The best men were in another room getting ready as well. The wedding dress was seen hanging by the lights, casting a beautiful image against the walls.
And after all the preparation, it was time to greet her groom!
For Céline, Vinod was always a fun one. She always remembers the first time she met Vinod. They had just come into business school as young students, and during the integration weekend, she came across this guy who can not stop charging her in a bumper car with a big happy smile. It must have been a seduction technique back then. Fortunately, he matured a bit since and here they are today celebrating their union together.
Although a marriage spanning 3 days was risky, but they don’t regret it. They really enjoyed their parents and friends and took time to see them and talk to them. They were delighted enough to have tried unusual activities: from games and hot dogs on Thursday evening, a rock concert with Vinod’s group, a Thursday evening meditation session, Friday morning Gospel Concert in the Church to a Bal folk Saturday night etc.
Saturday was the strongest day emotionally, since it is the day they tie their knots. Thankfully, the marriage proposal was much more romantic than the first meeting. They were on holiday from Dijon to Auxerre by bike. At the end of the first day, they found themselves in this small village completely lost. Braving the storm, they search for accommodation despite no prior booking. Luckily, the only village hotel kindly agreed to accommodate them and make them dinner although last minute reservation was usually not allowed. After a good shower, Vinod invited Céline outside and under the sun, greets her spontaneously with a proposal, causing trails of tears.
They walked in the streets with style, passing through cafes and shophouses a block away. In the church itself, choir began and everyone witnessed the beautiful moment when they exchanged their rings and was pronounced as husband and wife.
After the ceremony, the extra time allocated some freedom to the shots taken. This spiral shot of them just below the staircase brims with passion and love for each other. With its soothing hues, it directs our eye to the couple within. Céline & Vinod are definitely strung to each other!
Night settles and the atmosphere of celebration begun. A spotlight shined onto these two as they made entrance into the reception area. Family and friends gathered here to join in the celebration, bringing blessings and hugs of assurance.
A father-daughter dance pathed the way to more cheerful dances ahead. Céline & Vinod had a romantic dance and everyone joined the stage with dances of their own. It was a lovely night where everyone threw aside their differences and came together as a larger family.
Thanks again to Céline & Vinod for this beautiful wedding.
