Today we are taking you to Provence for this beautiful edgy but super romantic styled shoot. The shoot showcases how smaller weddings can still be full of details and amazing decor and how intimate weddings really are the way forward. We are also celebrating the fact that it is pride month with these two beautiful brides.
The stylists wanted to show that same sex couples are totally welcome in Southwest France and they also wanted to challenge themselves to use lavender in a more creative / less traditional way. The team wanted to showcase that there’s more than one way to have a beautiful wedding in the South of France. They created a French elopement story around two brides who feel very deep ties to their native Provence region, but who also might have also felt very stifled by the sometimes overly traditional / conservative mind-set and ideas about what a wedding is “supposed to” be or look like.
With a colour palette of dusty lavender plus multiple shades of greys and black, with classic French materials like linen, antique silver, olive trees and dried lavender, but used them in unique ways. The stylists also played those traditional elements against some more modern/industrial materials and textures like concrete, iron, perspex and vegan leather! They also tried to incorporate details personal to the two brides’ story – like star and moon imagery their all-vegetarian French wedding menu, and their adorable French bulldog ring-bearer, Maiki. Take a look to get inspired!
