An ode to femininity
Nestled between picturesque fields and unspoiled nature, far from the hustle and bustle of the city, this French chateau epitomizes the idea of romance, peace and serenity. Timeless elegance and seductive sensuality find here the perfect ambience for their development.
Creative Director Veronique Lorre, together with a great team, designed an ode to femininity here. With great passion for details and aesthetics, she brought her visions to life. Photographer Vivien Malagnat accompanied the team with her camera and enchants us with her impressive world of images.
Veronique Lorre tells us, “This shoot took place in the summer between the two lockdowns in France. When we planned this shoot with Heloïse(Cleophina + So Helo), the idea was to portray a very feminine love story that incorporates art & fashion into this modern French château tale.
Like an ode to femininity, this inspiration celebrates the summer days with freshness and lightness. The architecture of the venue was like a showcase into this poetic world, bringing a French elegant touch to the mood.
The editorial was divided into two parts: the first is an intimate lifestyle and boudoir session in two of the venue’s bedrooms, where the large arched windows and vintage green and floral tapestries inspired us to set the scene.
The second part of the story is about the wedding with an intimate ceremony in the garden and the reception in the dining room of the castle with its beautiful golden stucco walls.
We chose a color palette of peach, orange and yellow mixed with soft pink and a touch of blue to bring freshness to a romantic and sophisticated style. We kept the floral decoration simple, in a poetic and artistic atmosphere: a green indoor garden with dahlias, agapanthus and bright flowers like sea pearls and grasses. We chose a bright yellow table runner, combined with classic white china, crystal glasses and silverware, and By Popiète‘s delicate stationery, which subtly mixes modernity and tradition. On top of the table sat minimalist floral ikebana arrangements in a color variation from yellow to pink, highlighted by blue candles.
