This styled shoot had me at hello. I love everything about it. It is set in France (wish I was there now) and has so many playful, fall details that you just have to see it to believe it!
Event Planner Remarks – “I do not like cold weather when it’s gray out. But when it comes to an inspiration shoot, that’s different. What’s more romantic than the softness of fall colors?
“Wanting to organize a styled photo shoot is one thing, but for me, there had to be some kind of logic. So I patiently waited for autumn to bring out that natural setting I wanted to provide.
“A beautiful château in southeastern France (Saint Victor la Coste) to host the engagement session, followed by a simple lover’s stroll surrounded by nature to announce the wedding date. I came across that château a few years earlier, at the same season, during a walk with my lover. I remember saying to myself: what a magical place to get married! And it stayed in my mind ever since.”
“The second part of the shooting was about the actual wedding, simple and real, and took place just across the château, in a clearing discovered by chance. I wanted a simple setting that I clearly imagined merging with the natural environment. Giving the impression that while taking a walk in the woods, that unique spot filled with love and joy was discovered at the bend of a path.
“Basket under the arm, holding hands, picking up nuts and chestnuts just for the pleasure of hearing them crackle over the fire, placing pretty wood logs, feeling the warmth and get carried away by the beauty of the flames cuddled up to one another.
“If I had to get married one day, I would love it to be in a similar place, surrounded by loved ones all gathered around a wood fire, wrapped up in warm blankets knitted by great grandma a long time ago.
“And, what’s better than a tea bar to complete all that? I love drinking a tasty hot tea during the fall season to heat up my hands while never saying no to a slice of grandma’s old fashioned cake to warm the heart. Who wouldn’t love it?”
I love the hanging tea cups, what a great idea!
