Come on Barbie – Let’s go Party!

A French photographer, Beatrice De Guigne, has brilliantly executed one of the most clever concepts we’ve seen in some time. She created a real Barbie + Ken wedding. Then photographed it. It wasn’t easy!

“I had to spread the photos on three days, about 2 hours a day. And a final session of 2 hours for editing. Before that it took me weeks to find and collect all the accessories, to simply prepare the wedding!” – Beatrice De Guigne

While Beatrice had to play bride, wedding planner and wedding photographer, she managed to pull it all off without a hitch. Maybe there is a lesson there. Her sense of humor and patience went a long way.

“I was also asked how the dolls were standing up? Well all alone! Have you ever tried to stand up a Barbie? It’s a pain! As us, they have a balance must be found at every change of position. Fortunately Ken is a bit more stable (he doesn’t wear heels!), But I had to spend 5 minutes on each pose just to keep them standing up! ” – Beatrice De Guigne

For the full portfolio of Barbie and Ken’s wedding photos, Beatrice has them all online. As of this story, they even had a six month anniversary photo shoot already. You guessed it – Snowball fight!

She continues to be featured by Barbie Collectors and blogs around the world. Congratulations, Beatrice! You deserve the recognition. Barbie has never looked so good. And what a happy ending!
