Sherman & Chris are from Hong Kong but decided to have an intimate commitment ceremony and engagement shoot in the lavender fields of Provence, France.
The couple met at a mutual friend’s party just 2 years ago. Chris asked Sherman for a date and travelled to Taiwan with her. During the trip, they fell in love with each other.
Sherman always new that she wanted her proposal to be an intimate and private occurrence – just for her and Chris. For the proposal Chris booked a hotel room and filled the room with Sherman’s favorite characters, Lisa et Gaspard (two fictional characters appearing in a series of children’s books created by wife and husband Anne Gutman and Georg Hallensleben). When Sherman stepped into the room, Chris got down on one knee and asked the question. He said he wanted to be with her for the future 40, 50 and even 60 years.
They decided to celebrate their engagement and commitment ceremony in Provence, France because some years ago Sherman joined an exchange program to study in Lyon, France for a year and had the chance to see the beautiful landscape in Provence. She wanted to come back for this occasion. In particular, she wanted to be surrounded by the romantic lavender fields. It was like being surrounded by a purple ocean!
Our style inspiration: I wanted a romantic atmosphere in a southern France style, so I chose a light wedding gown without a long train and casual wear with a holiday mood – and lots of whimsical details such as bundle of lavender, sun hats, a vintage bicycle… – The Coordinated Bride Sherman
It would be a dream to take pictures here! Check the blossom period of lavender in Provence and book a hotel room well in advance. Congrats to Sherman & Chris!
