This photo shoot was inspired initially by the unique venue. Full of unique objects collected by the owners upon their travels.
In this manor from ancient times, the sunset reflects on its 4 centuries red bricks facade, remembering the end of a warm day in Africa.
Behind close doors, in the old orangery of the castle, the minimalism of a neat and subtile table, enhance the games of textures where dried leaves blend with a sophisticated and linear crockery carefully arranged.
Flowers suddenly become discreet, to highlight material and geometric lines.
Round and rectangular shapes mix with lotus leaves folded in half under the plates. Behind the table, an installation made of paper and natural fibers carpets, enable to put forward the blend of textures and contrast with linen, rattan furniture and the delicate details of contemporary ceramics.
Other place, other mood. For the ceremony a charming decor of handmade woven Vietnamese fans, transformed for the occasion into a floor structure.
A graphic installation playing with volume and depth, enabled to mix up handcrafted wickerwork and wild flowers gleaned around the castle.
The bride appears in this refreshing setup, in a guipure cotton lace with patterns that evokes Arabic earthenware and Spanish azulejos. The golden geometric earrings, brings a touch of modernity to her outfit. The groom, in his blazing corduroy velvet suit, is charmed by this rich and warm color. They both seems to be transported by this incredible golden sunset light.
We imagined for this photoshoot and this atmosphere that invites to travel, where the ethnic spirit blends with modern codes and geometric shapes. A link between two worlds, in an audacious mix of influences, modernity and ancient.
