In 2017, Sarah, Laëtitia and Laëtitia Caroline met for a wedding: they are all 3 wedding professionals and have collaborated to support many couples. Sarah is a photographer, Laëtitia is a Florist and Laëtitia Caroline is a Wedding Planner. They are all passionate, always 100% invested in everything they undertake with enthusiasm and benevolence. They had the idea to organize a styled shoot last September by bringing together something they all like: film photography. Sarah explains it requires taking time, to reflect well on her photo upstream. She loves it for its bright style, thanks to the details it keeps in the highlights, its textures which stand out more, for the softness of the grain and for its sometimes imperfect, more natural side. So it is naturally with the film that she wanted to capture these beautiful images.

 

Laëtitia Caroline fell in love with a sublime area of the French Riviera: the Bastide du Roy. This sumptuous building dates from the end of the 16th century. In particular, it belonged to Henri IV, then more recently to the famous fashion designer Jeanne Lanvin and Mick Jagger. It’s a country house with a big history where the magic works as soon as you open the doors!

The pastel shades of flowers and creations have been imagined to match the sublime French and Spanish gardens of the Bastide du Roy. They bring together Cris-Lou and Matthieu as models for this beautiful day and it is dressed in sumptuous outfits that they let themselves be guided by the whole team to capture all the moments imagined for weeks.

 

We also wanted to give a slightly different dimension to this shoot since we also dressed the bride of the day with a sublime flowery skirt that took the designer florist several hours to make. She wanted it simple, natural and elegant by mixing the tulle with the white phalaenopsis orchids and the white hydrangea, which are prestigious flowers… playing with a foliage work that foreshadowed the legs and feet of the bride. The goal: to get closer to nature in the beautiful olive garden, all in voluptuousness with this very airy molded skirt tailored to our beautiful bride. We have accentuated the nature side by making it move barefoot in the sumptuous gardens of the Bastide.

 

The wedding table was created around noble materials, linen and silk, with pretty pastel colors for a sublime late summer wedding. The handwritten calligraphy of the invitations and the table stationery reflect the refinement that we wanted in our decor of the day. 18th-century tableware and chairs bring a real touch of elegance and history to this sumptuous setting.
