Real Wedding: Philippe + Stéphane - A Beautiful Union in the Heart of Lyon, France

Philippe and Stéphane are based in Lyon and today we are bringing you their modern and urban wedding day. A nice photo shoot in the new district of La Confluence and the wedding in a pretty part of Lyon, France; documented through the eyes of Coralie Castillo.

“We met on the internet of all places!”

The Proposal

“The proposal was done at home, in a very classic way. Following the passing of the same-sex marriage law, we decided to marry to formalise our union.”

The Preparations

“We chose to use the services of a wedding planner, which made the wedding planning process infinitely easier on us. So no stress. Marion, our wedding planner of Mon Joli Jour, presented us with several suppliers (DJ, caterer, ceremonial venue, photographer, florist) and each one was perfect. Thanks to her!”

The Big Day 

“On the big day there were a lot of emotions. Especially for my then-future-husband, who upon entering the wedding hall burst into tears. It really was a great day, truly perfect in fact.”
