Today's unique French wedding is full of television and pop royalty. With Franco-American, Quentin and his boys donning a Peaky Blinders wedding suit and caps, and Nami running into Founder and pop princess, Rhianna at Fenty when choosing her wedding dress. The celebrations look insane, the couple look fierce, and the smiles are huge. Bring on the joy!

This wedding was great. A very good friend of ours is friends with Mariola, so her wedding gift to us was our photography. Mariola was excellent, always there for the perfect moments. She captured the essence of our wedding perfectly with images of laughter, family and friends. It's too bad she couldn't stay the whole evening otherwise there would be tons of dancing pictures too!

VIBE

We celebrated the union of the Moon and the Sun, by running away from Paris with all our guests for a night of light and magic. The bridesmaids wore a palette of colours between Summer and Autumn. The groomsmen wore Peaky Blinders wedding suits and caps. And I wore two dresses, one short and one with front split detail.

MOMENTS

Basically, everything was major! The energy of all our guests enjoying themselves was priceless. We want to thank them all again. For a DIY project, we chose to brew our own beer for the wedding. So, with the help of our friend Lisa, we brewed about 28L of two different kinds of beers. 

Nami got locked in the Fenty store whilst choosing her wedding dress as Rihanna was about to arrive. The story of Nami being their choosing her dress got around the store, and she was taken to see Rihanna who signed her bag, wished her a beautiful wedding and full life!

Nami & Quentin

Nami and Quentin swapped their one shoulder bride gown and Peaky Blinders wedding suit for traditional West African outfits for their first dance. And boy are they incredible!

Be strong! Don't get caught in the details, as long as you surround yourself with good people, even the worst mishap won't be a problem and you will find a way to enjoy every last minute of this truly magical day.

Nami & Quentin

There is no doubt about it Nami and Quentin have got style and know how to party! From their intimate town hall ceremony with a short wedding dress and flat cap, right through to their first dance complete with West African outfit change their smiles are infectious and love is real.
