A civil wedding on the shores of Lake Léman in the small village of Hermance is the sweet moment of K & F that I present to you today. Their civil marriage in a small committee, far from the stress of the big day, took place in mid-December in the small lake village of the canton of Geneva. The first snowfall covered the area, the weather is mild. I join the family and the bride and groom in the courtyard of the pretty town hall of Hermance. We go up to the top floor, in the wedding hall. It is a large wooded and vaulted room, highlighting the beautiful curves of a deliciously architectured framework. The ceremony takes place in two languages because the bride is from Eastern Europe. A translator is there to allow the family to understand the words of the Mayor. The ceremony is filled with beautiful emotions, sweet looks, smiles, and a few tears. Then we go down to the courtyard to immortalize the moment with a group photo. And we head to the Auberge d’Hermance where a colourful cocktail awaits the newlyweds and their guests.
I have a beautiful table decoration waiting for me. I enjoy photographing its details. The light is beautiful. It is elegant. It magnifies the gold that adorns the crockery. The cardinal red, purple of the flowers adds a note of poetry to this set.
We even take advantage of a ray of sunshine to take pictures of couples. The first meeting after the family exchanges, then congratulations, the moment of breathing, and the reunion of the couple. I love this moment because they discover themselves as husband and wife. The look changes. It’s fun to call yourself Sir or Madam. We stroll through the charming streets of this small town after a detour by the lake and the sublime winter light that shines on the lake. I leave you after these few words with the photographic report of this sweet day.
