We are starting the week off in style with a beautiful Versailles Bohemian wedding at Hotel Trianon, planned by French Grey Events and captured by French Grey Photography. What is even more unique about this wonderful wedding inspiration is that the real wedding actually started out as a styled shoot!
To find out all about the shoot turned wedding Kasia from French Grey Events shares with us the concept behind the shoot: “The inspiration for this styled shoot, was to show modern brides an alternative to the classic Parisian wedding/elopement by featuring a wedding in Versailles, France. The “Let them Eat Cake” tea party theme wedding ceremony, was held in the gardens at the Palace Trianon in Versailles, and the team of very skill-full French based and international vendors enjoyed a beautiful morning prepping on the grounds of such a luxurious hotel.
For this shoot we contacted French wedding dress designer Mathilde Marie whom provided us with a beautiful handmade silk gown. A Gatsby inspired 30’s style dress that’s a part of her 2015 collection. The models, Melody Joy Kennedy and her fiancé Greg, actually decided three days before the styled shoot to take the plunge and get married for real at the event!
Decorations were provided by French wedding rental company La Boheme and the cake was by Synies Cakes Paris. The classic tea party with a modern twist. Stationary provided by Nabe Fabric customised with a M&G monogram and discreet Fragonard images, inspired by the Versailles gardens environment.
Being from California, Melody wanted her Bohemian California style to show through, but she also wanted some classic French traditional elements for her look as well. So the Twigs & Honey Juliet veil made from French lace with embroidery detailing on the side was the perfect accessory. Add to this some California wave curls and beautiful make-up conceived by Annisa Renko styliste using some gold-leaf flakes on the eyes, to get that amazing sparkle.”
Bride and makeup styliste Melody shares her side of the shoot turned real wedding: “My name is Melody Joy Kennedy, I am a professional make-up artist from Los Angeles, CA and creator of the beauty, fashion, lifestyle blog SMUDGE. I am a big fan of French Wedding Style and thought I would take this opportunity to share my recent wedding experience with you!
In May my ( then ) fiancé and I bought one way tickets to Paris, France to embark on a pre-kids adventure. Of course we also wanted to take the opportunity of being in such a gorgeous location to get married as well.
Neither my husband nor I are into big traditional weddings and Kasia Wright from French Grey Events planned us the perfect beautiful and stress-free wedding in Versailles, France. I honestly felt like the day was out of a dream between my beautiful Parisian designer dress by Mathilde Marie and the gorgeous surroundings of the Palace Trianon in Versailles. ”
