Sensual Femininity at Chateau de Varennes



The magnificent Château de Varennes was this time the backdrop for this shoot, planned and realized as an ode to femininity by Anne-Clothilde of Hedhera. Under the artistic direction of LMD Conseils and together with an impressive tem, a concept that enchants was created with love and dedication.

Géraldine Leblanc inspires with her talent for stylish photography and takes us on a beautiful journey of inspiration and aesthetics with her poetic imagery.

From Anne-Clothilde von Hedhera: “In order to immerse yourself with us in this shooting, we invite you to close your eyes and plunge into a deep sleep…

Like a dream, the atmosphere is misty. We see a bride strolling and wandering in the castle the day before her wedding. The movements are slow and rhythmic at the same time, punctuated by the beating of her heart so much excitement is present! She plays with the materials of her veil with delicacy and sensuality. She plays with the flowers she imagines for her wedding. She perfumes herself to mark this very special day. She dreams of this beautiful lingerie that she will wear on her wedding day, this boudoir session which is this so intimate and personal moment. She lets her skin and her neck be seen as an ode to femininity. The atmosphere is carnal, feminine and poetic. This is her moment, the one she decides to live alone with her only companions, pastries and a bottle of champagne. She plays, she dances, she imagines the day when she will say that famous “yes” to the man who will support her for the rest of her life. Since she was a child, she dreamed of this moment, today more than ever, we arrive at this precious moment.

She decides to wear her dress, this beautiful dress of Mademoiselle Rêve with delicate pink reflections that symbolize romanticism and femininity. She plays with the materials of her dress which she wears with great pride. In this one, she feels strong, invulnerable and full of determination. The movements accelerate, impatience is stronger than anything, she runs to imagine this dress in the place where she will say her wishes to her promised. She puts on her majestic flowered cape over her dress and here she is, therefore, in ecstasy and playing with it in the chapel of the Château de Varennes, the place of her wedding.

As in every dream, all good things come to an end. While she is at the height of her joy, we see her in her bed with a magnificent flowery mask over her eyes. She wakes up and realizes that it was all a dream! The dream of her life, the one she will live tomorrow…

The design of this shooting was thought by women, for women in search of femininity and sensuality. Inspired by painters: Gustave Jean Jacquet, François-Hubert Drouais or even Léon François Comerre, we imagined a true ode to femininity.

The flowers of La Maison Dautel are in shades: wine lees, blush, cappuccino and beige. Several compositions are present on the shooting : the fan, the sleeping mask and the flowered structure behind the model during the boudoir session.

The idea was especially to play with all the raw materials that will be used for the wedding: tulle, flowers, lots of details of veil, silk, chiffon, lace, petals… ”
