E&A: a wedding filled with joy in the Jura!
Today let’s show you the wedding of E&A, in the Jura, in France, a wedding filled with happiness and pretty surprises for the newlyweds! We photographed this wedding at the end of last August.
You will first of all be invited to discover some of the couple photos taken when arriving at the wedding venue (Jujurieux, in the Jura): we took advantage of a very pretty light at the end of the day, and we took the opportunity to immortalize the lovers in their beautiful wedding outfits before they join their loved ones at the cocktail party. We used the exterior of their splendid reception area to have a tree-lined and uniform background.
It was a both a wedding and a baptism of their little boy at the church of Jujurieux, in Bugey on the western foothills of the Jura massif.
Once the preparations were completed, we photographed the wedding ceremony, then the exit of the bride and groom, and finally the baptism ceremony. It went very well: we couldn’t have dreamed of a better reaction from their little boy: he laughed when he received the water on his forehead!
The party then took place in an old chapel renovated and transformed into a magnificent reception venue!
This is the former C.J Bonnet silk chapel, which today hosts not only weddings for the visitors of the Jura but also concerts, lotos and cultural events such as art exhibitions. The chapel dates from the 19th century and was designed by Sainte-Marie-Perrin, it was then the place of prayers of the workers of the Soieries Bonnet factory in Jujurieux.
With its high ceilings, wall curtains and columns, the venue was very photogenic and provided E&A with a great evening welcoming all of their guests to the big dance floor. Just before entering this beautiful place, we took advantage of the green exterior of this old chapel to take couple and group photos, and take advantage of the last sunlight of the day to photograph the guests during the cocktail party.
We really enjoyed photographing this very happy wedding in the Jura and meeting E&A! We particularly liked the reception venue: grandiose, it allowed us not only to have an overall photo of the room highlighting the decoration chose by the bride and groom but also to take advantage of the height of the ceiling for our evening photos! Its magnificent exterior allowed us to take pretty photos with clean and minimalist backgrounds, which we particularly appreciate. Finally, its location was perfect; the Jura not being very far from where we live, we did not need to ask for accommodation!
We hope you enjoyed these few images, the story of the weddingof these two lovers, and the discovery of this atypical wedding venue.
