As much as we love summer weddings here at Fly Away Bride, we get quite excited to see a beautiful winter session arriving in our inbox. Sarah and Paul’s French Alps engagement was captured by Nisha Ravji and is full of amazing snow shots set amidst the beautiful ski resort of Meribel in eastern France- where the couple are lucky enough to live for half of every year. Catch Sarah and Paul’s story below, but first immerse yourself in this amazing scenery!

THE ENGAGEMENT

From Sarah: “I learned afterwards that our engagement was supposed to happen in New York- Paul surprised me with a ticket to see Beyonce (a very intimate show with only 3000 guests). It was amazing. A week prior to this we were in Kalkan in Turkey: Paul got very excited and ended up doing it there on a little island overlooking the ocean.

CHOOSING THE LOCATION

We booked Nisha for our wedding and she was so lovely from the beginning that I was very keen to meet her before the wedding. I thought an engagement session was a good way to document our life in France and something to keep for future. Choosing the location was easy, we wanted to shoot in Meribel in the Alps as we live there for half the year. It’s also a spectacularly beautiful place. If we had advice for couples having a photo session here it would be to be adventurous! Don’t let the snowy conditions put a dampener on the day- just go with it and have fun.

WEDDING PLANS

We are getting married in a local church in England before heading back to Paul’s parents’ house for a garden marquee wedding. Hopefully the weather will be good as I would love it to be outside as much as possible. I just love an English country garden!”
