It's Friday, and we're on the brink of the weekend – what better way to celebrate than with a Parisian chic style wedding celebration? 

Reiko and Baptiste tied the knot on 2 October at the trendy L’Auberge du Bonheur, a beautiful restaurant in the heart of the Bois de Boulogne park in Paris.  By the time these photographs were taken, the couple had already had their official wedding in Japan, but wanting a second celebration back in France, so to be surrounded by Baptiste’s family and friends, they appointed London Wedding Photographer Jodie Chapman to capture these beautiful photographs on camera.

Reiko wore two amazing dresses on her wedding day – the first, an original 1960's vintage lace design, and the second, she designed herself…

"I wanted to wear a dress with sleeves, as it seems very classy and elegant to me. I found a lacy dress in a vintage wedding gown shop in Tokyo! As for the long dress, I designed it by myself, and the tailor made it perfectly!"

Paris, Je t’aime….

I love how both of Reiko's dresses ooze chic sophisticated style. She reminds me of Coco Chanel…

Words of Wedded Wisdom…

"Bear in mind, your wedding photography is REALLY important. She/he is the one who captures the beautiful moments, and the photographs are the ones you will always look at to remind you of your beautiful day – after the wedding. Look at the Photographers gallery and blog, and if those pictures capture your heart and you cant' help but stare at them, then that's who you want at your wedding.  I am super happy with Jodie's photographs!"
