Mike and Mel . engaged in the South of France

Provence is the most incredible place to take photos. Everything is soft and old and worn; you just want to be there, smell the warm lavender air and enjoy life. This little medieval town was the absolute perfect place to spend the afternoon with Mike and Mel where life slowed right down and all that mattered was what you were doing in the moment.

We were lucky enough to go to the South of France, right? but on top of it all Danish designer Jannie Baltzer created this incredible custom poppy headpiece for the occasion. Thank you Jannie!! You’re incredible.

We happened upon the perfect little deserted bistro.

Then to a field above our little town

Mel’s gorgeous natural makeup and hair was done by Ylva Langenskiold.

Mike surprised Mel with a beautiful cuff bracelet from their friend and Canadian jewellery designer Mizdragonfly. He was going to wait until the wedding day but thought this occasion was too perfect to pass up. Agreed!

and on to some lavender too, it smelled like heaven.
