A French fine art wedding in maroon and black at Château Ste-Agnès

white pink and raspberry floral installation

Château Ste-Agnès, dating back to 1846, seems to emerge straight out of a fairy tale. When Melanie Aubin, wedding designer & planner at Foudamour, came across the raspberry-colored wall of a room at Château Ste-Agnès on the web, inspiration struck for this wedding inspo editorial captured by Cagdas Yoldas Photography. She envisioned a heavy summer sky, an atmosphere filled with the scent of ripe fruits and grapes on the vines, a romantic and dramatic ambiance inspired by a still life painting. The creative journey was dedicated not only to capturing the essence of femininity, but also demonstrating that femininity can be defined in numerous ways. Through a palette of deep and rich colors, traditional artistry turned into a modern-day moody narrative that's an absolute must-see.

From the boutique Dream It Yourself, the Huntleigh gown by Australian brand Jane Hill exuded confident femininity.

Its detachable train added a glamorous touch, perfect for a wedding in a castle! To complete the look, the designers opted for gloves - the ultimate accessory for the modern princess.

Overflowing florals

Exquisitely executed by Atelier Carmel, the floral arrangements took center stage in the decor. They were small works of art in themselves! In a sprawling palette of shades, they overflowed their chosen areas. We particularly loved the extra-large boutonniere on the model's tuxedo!

A contemporary spin with black decor details

All the decor elements, sourced from Locations Chic, alternated between highly decorative and minimalistic, as the vendors aimed to create a Renaissance-inspired wedding firmly rooted in modernity. The decorative volute chargers and cut crystal glassware coexisted with delicate table napkins and sleek candle holders. The black chairs and cutlery also brought a contemporary touch to the whole setting.
