Good morning folks, we are still in Southern France today, this time we are heading to Provence for today’s Moulin de la Recense wedding styled shoot. Provence with its beautiful landscape and stunning light makes for the perfect backdrop to any romantic affair especially a wedding.

The beauty in imperfection was the inspiration for this fine art wedding in the middle of Provence. We just love everything about this shoot, the stunning location, our brides backless Jeanne Source gown which looks perfect for a hot summer’s day. The beautiful relaxed bridal bouquet created by Charlotte Flower and Twig is stunning, perfectly complimenting the look and feel of this fine art wedding.

Le moulin de la recense

“The shoot took place in the historic domaine of Moulin de la Recense, in the middle of Provence, an old olive mill which is a witness of a bygone era.” Provence countryside plain and simple wedding stationery black and white bridal portrait black and white elegant photography

“This styled shoot was inspired by the following poem:

DELABREMENT
This face with imperfect features,
This architecture with dilapidated walls,
Each one being an open book telling a story, each hiding the secret of a mysterious beauty.”Charlotte flower and twig fine art bouquet Jeanne Source wedding veil light and airy wedding photography

“Délabrement is a French term in Provencal culture, we can define it like the Japanese concept of “Wabi-Sabi” which means ‘the beauty of imperfection’ which was the theme of this shoot.” simple wedding tablescape simple wedding stationery eucalyptus wedding chair decor Provence elopement blue wedding theme

“Beauty is found in imperfection and old, instead of perfection (and old instead of youth according to Wabi Sabi), this flaw we can be found on the walls of Provencal architecture, on ceramics, on organic calligraphy gestures. We have chosen an imperfect paper to use for our calligraphy.” loose curl wedding hair style backless wedding gown provence wedding bridal portrait rose and eucalyptus bouquet Delphine Pompom bleu hair and make up

“We can also find this fragility in people’s emotions, non perfect personality and facial traits that tells a unique story. The message of this philosophy is to have the right to be imperfect and accept it as a gift.” fine art bridal portrait fine art wedding photography

“The role of those frames was to forget anything smooth, perfect, straight or linear and to accept the fragility, the weakness and sadness of the groom and bride’s traits, to present their true faces. To give another definition to Human, Beauty and Love.” bowtie wedding Jeanne Source backless gown golden hour wedding

“Film photography was vital for this theme, in order to add some grain, especially in the small chapel inside the Domaine. Also to have more details, to feel the caress, the touch between the couple, or feel more details of the architecture of leaves. Feeling like touching matter is important (hair, ceramics, wall, body).” rustic buttonhole

“For me feeling is more important than showing, that’s why those images were subjective and I have tried to get far from reality, experience an emotion, an impression, is more important than truth in photography, because photography is art, that can be used to dream. The role of photography was to create another world, to store by deleting to create a space of comfort.”beautifully lit wedding photoFor even more gorgeous Provence wedding inspiration check out this intimate wedding at Chateau de Robernier Provence.
