Notre Mariage

Within this blog you often see into my professional life but, once I saw these films I realized that though personal, they were too beautiful to keep to myself. The first film is just 3 minutes long and is perfect for those of you who may not have much time. The second  film is an expanded 18 minute version and contains some lovely interviews. I'm happy to present to you two short films documenting our wedding in France, the happiest day of my life.



James and I would like to give a heart felt thanks and credit to the following people:
  • Cynthia Nicholson and her lovely family who opened the grand doors of their Chateau to us. Cynthia, you made us all feel like royalty and gave us two days we will never forget.  (I highly recommend you to make a trip to Chateau Challain in the Loire valley and spend the night, it's worth the trip!)
  • Gilbert Le and his amazing Americana Cinema crew who made these beautiful films. He's simply THE best cinematographer we ever met and he realized our vision for the film perfectly. Thank you Gilbert for capturing the look, feel and ambiance of our special day in a way we can always cherish.
  • Our wonderful family and friends who made it all the way out to France to watch us exchange our vows. You are the reason we are who we are and we love you with all our hearts.
  • Zac Posen and his talented team who created a true masterpiece for me to wear. I can never thank you enough for making this little girls dream come true Zac, you are a true artist and friend.
  • Additional thanks to Dior Homme for James' handsome tuxedo and Liz Pugh at Rimmel for coming all the way from London to do my make-up.
I sign off now as,
Mrs. Coco Rocha Conran.

It was just amazing.
BTW, the name of music in the first vudeo is "My name is Lincoln".
It was the theme music in the movie "The Island", and Avatar's trailer.

I watched the short version, and I almost cried. Stunning videography, a magical wedding. Amazing. Someone needs an Oscar for that video.

I'll come back to tune into the long version.

Congrats again! you're living the dream!

Hey Coco--

I have just moved with my boyfriend from Toronto to NYC to start our PhDs, and I thought I would try to make contact--would you like to go for coffee sometime and catch up? You can reach me at ardenhegele@gmail.com. (I'm not on Facebook.)

Congratulations on your marriage!

Richard said...

I'm a guy and I loved it. (Not that I'm gay or anything.)

Of course the bride was beautiful and glamorous but the film of the wedding was done exceptionally well and the music was fantastic.

Good work Cocco! It was very generous of you to allow us into your wedding but also a smart marketing move.

Just Another Londoner said...

To my intense embarrassment I actually had a tear in my eye at the end of the first one...I'm so glad you had such a wonderful day and I wish you both every happiness (belatedly!).

monie said...

It was so hard to keep the tears in (if I wasn't in a public place I would have cried). I've never found myself teary at the thought or witnessing of weddings but this was amazing.

Does anyone know who sings this version of Hallejuah? It's played in the last minutes of the short film.

Your film is so amazingly beautiful, you had really the best people to do such a film. The first shorter film is for me so different from the second one, but both have so much poesie. It must have been a dream of a wedding, it's so great. And you Coco looked so pretty in Zac Posen, really the most beautiful bride.
