Q: How does The Étonnant work?

A: The Étonnant masterclass is a styled shoot experience with a hand-picked team of wedding vendors, and location that is selected on moodboard criteria and is aligned with the vision of a wedding story concept put together by the team at The Étonnant. We create all segments of a wedding day, with ceremony, tablescape, florals, calligraphy, accessories, flat-lay station and portraits with models. Each station is limited to a maximum of 5 photographers at a time who rotate through 5-6 stations a day.


The Étonnant guests will have a certain amount of lead time in each station before moving to the next. We want to give you plenty of time with each station to shoot your own vision and create your own detail and accessories shots. We will of course mention before each shoot who we will have hired as our couple for the day, who is the floral designer and what is the overall concept of the story you will be shooting. We will email across all of our participants social media tags as soon as they are secured for you to become acquainted with their work.


We are here to share our experience, listen to you and what you would like to achieve, we are happy to show you how we do things but ultimately we want you to be in charge of your own portfolio! Come and explore the opportunities to learn, experiment & capture your ideal dream weddings and clients!
