Gatsby Chic at Domaine Fontainebleau
We are super excited to present to you today a beautiful editorial on Domaine Fontainebleau in Provence by wedding planner agency Wed’Love. A unique idea and inspiration – a symbiosis of industrial and natural atmosphere, elegant at the same time to highlight the strengths of a growing Domaine.
Located in the heart of the Var, Domaine de Fontainebleau is best known for its viticulture and organic farming, but since 2021 it has also been known for its magnificent weddings.
The 170-hectare estate has both an industrial-style winery (reception venue) and a hamlet with typical Provençal charm, a chapel where small religious ceremonies can be held, a historic mill and arcades with magnificent stone columns.
The impressive imagery of Jérémie Hkb inspires and immerses us in the time of the 20s.
From the team: “The inspiration for a Gatsby Chic theme reminiscent of the ’20s quickly came to us. We let ourselves be guided by the ambience and atmosphere of the estate.
You can therefore find throughout the shooting a mixture of industrial styles and a much more chic and rustic style in line with the nature of the place.
In the twenties, the bright colors stand out strongly and this is what led the Wedding Designer Un Jour Pétillant to put forward a shades of pink, ranging from fuchsia pink to a paler pink, to raise the industrial side of the cellar and bring out this dark side. As its name suggests, Nadège, imagined “sparkling” floral arrangements that can be found throughout this shoot until the Wedding Cake of La Pâtisserie des Alpilles. A square-shaped wedding cake to recall the lines of the industrial style.
The art of the table, the glassware, the cutlery were selected from the famous Maison Options. Here we find the Windsor Gold range for the cutlery and the Belle Époque range for glassware. The black plates as an industrial nod.
The furniture and decorative elements have been carefully chosen by Coco Touch and in collaboration with Un Jour Pétillant. Here we find vintage furniture, mottled with old decanters for the whiskey bar, a theater bench, a gramophone (very trendy at the time).
This report was perfectly highlighted by the bright and “fine art” style of the talented photographer Jérémie Hkb, known for his elegant and refined work. For us, it was important to choose a photographer who had the talent and the build to be able to put everyone’s work forward with his keen eye and his experience.
The dress was designed exclusively for this shoot by the talented stylist Aude Lauzac. With her experience in the Chanel & Lacroix houses, she was able to imagine the dress in total adequacy with the style of the 1920s while keeping a long dress for the romantic side. Maud Tordjman made up and styled Cansin very elegantly and highlighted the mouth with a rouge for the sparkling side we were looking for.
Saru is dressed in a burgundy / purple tuxedo from Accord Parfait, known on the French Riviera for his way of dressing men in a chic way, fitting perfectly into the shades of pink, the guiding line of our palette. colorimetric
For jewelry, we worked with a renowned jeweler from Cannes, the Volterra jewelry store, which has been a jewelry designer for many years and has put forward a pearl collection here that also recalls the 1920s.”
