Do you need some floral inspiration for your wedding?
Look no further than this floral inspiration shoot captured by Thomas Audiffren on Pellegrin Beach in Bormes les Mimosas. La Blonde et le Barbu has put together beautiful floral arrangements with a white colour palette and a perfect blend between fresh and dry foliage…
“This natural and idyllic setting gave all the inspiration for this wedding on the sublime Pellegrin Beach in Bormes les Mimosas in the south of France. Warm sand, maritime pines, Mediterranean sea and setting sun form a pure and natural atmosphere.
Flowers At The Heart Of The Decoration To Set The General Tone
The white, symbol of purity, the harmony of soft and natural colours, the mixture of dry foliage and fresh flowers in respect of the colours offered by nature and this dream setting.
The Bride’s Bouquet
The main bridal bouquet is the very heart of the floral creation of this wedding. A voluptuous bouquet, entirely dressed in creamy white, which seems to land in her arms like a light and refined cloud. Each element that composes this bouquet has been chosen with care in a subtle mix of dry and fresh inspired directly by nature.
The delicacy of buttercups with “thousand” petals, the subtlety of Akito roses with such a creamy colour, placed on a bed of dry foliage. Aerial and spicy Ruscus, white ferns so fragile and light framing the bouquet on both sides like a love nest, hydrangea Annabelle also called “Snow Ball” at the heart of the bouquet, the thorny white thistle and finally the delicate and round Monnaie du pape. Its height gives it a lot of breadth and character and its soft shades go so perfectly with the sand.
We decided to create a second bouquet, even lighter which stands out for its round shape which perfectly matches the circular arch on the beach. A simple driftwood ring where flowers and dried leaves mingle, and its large graphic palm.
The Great Scenery On The Beach
The palm leaves gleaned nearby and curved into a half-moon form a very natural arch in the sand on the beach. The choice of implantation of this arch was very important. Not the classic parallel to the sea, but on the contrary to make it take a bias integrating it both on the sand and with a beautiful horizon line on the Mediterranean Sea.
This moon has been designed to create many details that sublimate it from near and far: the small white palm leaves create small niches in the arch where the buttercups, roses and hydrangeas are once again lodged, but also magnificent large flowers like suns, white Chrysanthemums.
The white Dahlia pompoms come out of the frame and bring roundness, and the anthuriums punctuate the arch and bring freshness and modernity. A natural fibre coconut rug lines the sand to accentuate this half-moon.
All of the floral arrangements have been designed in a spirit of Fine Art, surprising by this mixture of dry and fresh, unusual in this style, and which more often refers to the bohemian. It is however the very affirmed choice that we made to break the codes and bring a new genre and horizons to be exploited for Fine Art: the subtle integration of foliage and dry flowers with fresh flowers, in a refined spirit and in great detail.”
