words from the vendors
Our bride encapsulated pure bohemian elegance in a mix of French wedding dresses by Laure de Sagazan and Rime Arodaky, plus couture Parisian bridal headpieces that adorned her loose beach-boho waves and fresh natural make up both by Victoria Farr Hair and Make Up. Captured in the gorgeous imagery by Cat Hepple, our couple find their love in each other’s arms as they explore the magnificent chateau estate, reminiscent of a fairytale film setting.
The decadent tablescape was inspired by and featured some of the antique French furniture from within the Gothic chateau, adorned with opulent dinnerware including Ralph Lauren champagne coupes . Gaining the balance of bohemian and opulence, expat florist French Flower Style created oversize floral designs featuring ivory, soft pinks and sage green including our floor length bridal bouquet.
