Romantic flower variety on Castel Bay in Provence
Fine Art arguments are feather-light, aesthetic and stylish. As if by magic, you stop and marvel. What you see fascinates and inspires, strengthens and confirms, encourages and inspires.
We were also immediately captivated by this beguiling editorial by fine art photographer Christophe Serrano. Inspired by the beauty of Provence, the photopoet created a romantic concept with a beguiling world of colors and ravishing details.
Floral designer Virginie Sellem of L’art qui pousse conjured up an elaborate floral arrangement, creating a beautiful symbiosis of glamour, art and naturalness.
By Christophe Serrano: “Located in the town of Hyères in southeastern France, the Castel Bay estate is a treasure hidden by umbrella pines, the emblem of Provence. Overlooking the Côte d’Azur, Castel Bay offers a panoramic view of the sea and the sunset. I have lived in the region for several years and have been inspired by this universe for this challenging editorial. We have the sea, the sun, the umbrella pines, only the most beautiful!
Virginie Sellem of L’art qui pousse, floral design, created a floral wall that completely surrounds the bride, as if she were immersed in the flower, nestled, embraced by the plants that surround her. This inspiration combines glamour, art and naturalness with hand-picked flowers, an incredible mix of garden roses, dahlias, carnations, proteas and native foliage.
Aude Violette, designer of wedding dresses, joined the team and designed several outfits in the original colors. She brought her creative touch with materials like organza.
The table is set with a cascade of flowers that combine both opulence and naturalness – a composition of garden roses, carnations, dahlias, with little foliage.
Each plate is decorated and gives way to the stationery created by Bonjour Paper. Makeup artist Fiona Grosso and Le Salon Sanary… have outdone themselves with Laurene’s incredible red hair … accented by a touch of gold on the eyelids.
