Krystal + Christian | A Dordogne Chateau Wedding film | France
A wedding in the south west of France is always special and Krystal and Christian’s wedding was no exception. Starting with a dramatic and misty morning, this day opened up into a perfect sunny autumn day.
The gardens of this Dordogne Chateau are so old and enchanting with centuries old trees smiling at the sun, so it was certainly fitting to go for a stroll with Krystal and Christian during their wedding day for some piece and quiet and a few nice shots.
Coming from Sydney Australia, Krystal and Christian could not have asked for a more fairytale perfect French wedding day and we were so honoured to be a part of it
L’Amour à Paris | A styled elopement video
Elopements in paris are so beautiful and different from weddings. We just love to film them too, as they are so intimate and personal. We get to be able to spend quality time with the couple and really get to know them and their story.
This amazing shoot was styled by the talented Billy Folchetti and set the the impressive Shangri-La Hotel in the heart of paris. With a string of other talented professionals ( seen below) We were able to create a beautiful elopement and something we should all be proud of.

This area is unique in its landscape and is a playground for them both. Their friendship has become so deep and strong that Jeroen proposed a few months ago. This film is a celebration of the love they have for each other.

When you watch Stephanie and Christopher look at each other, you can tell at that moment nothing else exists in the world but just themselves.

With Paris as the backdrop for their elopement ceremony with Aude Abadie, this day was something special.

Lubna + Jamil | A winter wedding film | France
We at Zen Film Works were so happy to be able to shoot our first winter and New Year Eve wedding in the Dordogne Region in the French countryside. With a beautiful frosty morning Lubna and her girls took advantage of the crisp air and went for a run. This NYE wedding was filled with love, family and friends and was enjoyed by all who had the privilege of attending. The day turned into a beautiful sunny day with an amazing sunset which made perfect light for a romatic couples shoot amongst the old trees in the Garden surrounding the Chateau.
Natasha + Jason | A Paris wedding film
Natasha and Jason decided to elope to paris to confirm their love for each other with their close friends and family. Their Paris wedding day, planned by the talented Billy at Luxe Paris Events, could not have been more perfect and relaxed. There were only laughs and champagne while Natasha was getting ready to walk down the isle in her custom couture designed gown by Paolo Corona. With Paris Peak hour traffic against us during the photo shoot, we still managed to capture some magical moments of Natasha and Jason enjoying this magical and romantic city on one of the most romantic days of their lives.
Dani + Gil | A marryoke film in France
Dani and Gils wedding was situated in an amazing Country Camping Area with a difference. It was like an african safari style in France. Dani and Gil chose one of our optional extras of shooting a lip sync music video (Marryoke) of their wedding day and it couldn’t have been more fun, creating scenes and directing guests and the couple into laughing and dancing stupors.
With a beautiful outdoor ceremony and reception, and with the weather as perfect as possible, Dani and Gil definitely had their dream French wedding come true.
