Americans (re: me) have a tendency to romanticize the French Countryside—with its wildflowers, stolen kisses and miles of baguettes. Does it get move lovely, more Chocolat, more French Kiss? This week's wedding in Aubiac, France captured by London-based wedding photographer Marianne Taylor proves that oui, I am right to have these romantic delusions.
Taylor, one of Rangefinder's 30 Rising Stars of Wedding Photography 2012, documented the nuptials of Florence and Alvaro with a ceremony in Aubiac and reception at Jardins de Coursiana in La Romieu. As for equipment, Taylor says: "I used a Canon Eos 5D Mark III, and the lenses used most were probably 50mm, 85mm and a 45 tilt/shift." "Florence herself had made all the paper decorations, something that evidently kept her busy for many many months prior to the wedding," Talor says. "The whole day was a buzz of different languages, as there were guests from all over due to Florence (French-Spanish) and Alvaro’s (Italian-Peruvian) heritage."
