As someone who captures moments of love for a living, it was only apt that fine art film wedding photographer Oliver Fly met his future-wife, Camille McGarry—founder of Studio McGarry—on the riverbanks in Paris. At the time, she was the social media manager for a restaurant on the shores of the Seine. After work, she stayed for a few drinks with her friends and spotted Oliver, who was staring back at her. “After hours of eye contact, he finally came to me to offer me a drink,” she recalls.

Two-and-a-half years later, Oliver proposed on their work trip in Kenya—which was almost foiled by Camille’s slow Covid recovery. Thankfully, she tested negative and was feeling well enough to travel across the world. One late morning in the Maasai Mara National Reserve, the two were on the terrace, surrounded by giraffes. He called her toward him to better see a baby giraffe, and after admiring the magnificent animal, she turned around to find Oliver on one knee with a De Beers ring.

Once engaged, the two decided to host their destination wedding weekend in Morocco. In 2021, they had spent six months in Marrakech and wanted to return with their loved ones. Camille’s mother and stepfather also happen to have a villa in La Palmeraie, called La Maison des Rêves, and they gladly proposed the pair host their nuptials at the house. To help bring their garden vision to life, the two brought on White Eden Weddings. And Crème de Papier set the tone for the weekend with a Moroccan-inspired invitation suite.

For her autumn nuptials, Camille found her Inbal Dror dress with one of her bridesmaids. “It’s bold, sexy yet very romantic, flow-y, and all in the details,” she says. “I could not have dreamt of a better dress that represents me so well. I am actually planning on cutting it to make a summer dress out of it!” The bride completed her look with the Natalia platforms by Loeffler Randall.

On the day-of, Camille got ready with Trine Juel, who made her feel like the best version of herself. And after the ceremony, she changed into a custom dress, inspired by “the dancing ballerina music box.”

Oliver looked handsome in a black tuxedo by Rives Paris with Matthew Cookson velvet shoes and the Baume & Mercier watch that Camille gifted him as an engagement present.

On October 30, 2022, Camille walked down the floral-lined aisle by Miss Rose by Perrine with her mother. The couple’s best friends officiated the ceremony marvelously, and the bridal party made speeches. “We cried a lot, we laughed a lot, and we felt love, so much love, between us, of course, but also all the people that surrounded us,” Camille shares. “It was just perfect.”

The newlyweds and their 63 guests sat down for the delicious reception dinner at one big table. Afterward, Oliver surprised Camille with the live painting that artist Aaron Jacob Jones had done during their ceremony. “I saw Aaron right before the ceremony and couldn’t believe what was happening!” Camille exclaims. Then, the newlyweds cut their tiered cake by Made in Cake and walked through a sparkler tunnel to reveal the pool party with floating candles and a deejay from Selecktive.

Once changed into her second look, Camille did a choreographed dance with Oliver to “Quando Quando Quando” by Engelbert Humperdinck. The lively celebrations went on until 4:00 a.m.—solidifying its status as an unforgettable and epic day.
