For this Château Bouffémont wedding shoot, Sara Damien of Rouge Wedding was inspired by an elegant French bride and this beautiful castle venue. In a peaceful haven erected in the nineteenth century, The Château Bouffémont stands tall just outside of Paris, France. Let’s dive into the dreamy details… The pleasure lies in waiting… this elegant and joyful bride prepared for the big day mentally and physically. After all, it is her big moment! The bride is delicate, she takes her time, in order to savor every moment. We wanted to represent the delicate beauty of the bride, with a natural and refined makeup look and hairstyle created by the talented Reina Kim. She was inspired by a rose, a representation of the delicacy and preciousness we wanted to capture. She wore delicate lace and feminine lingerie created by Cléophina. She spends her last moments as a young bride to be in it before putting on her impressive dress provided by La mariée Capricieuse. It’s the second stage in life that is represented by lightness and delicacy. The lettering by GRG was very meticulous which created luxury stationery. With the help of Sara and Adrien, from Rouge Wedding, who are specialized in the field of luxury fine art, everything really came together nicely. Finally, she looks out the window just watching the time pass before she is ready to put her dress on. She opens the windows to let the Provence sun in and she is ready for her journey – cool, calm and collected.
We loved having windy weather for this shoot. It makes portraits of the bride more intense and dramatic. We are always working with soft lights, and for this shoot, we wanted to have a lot of light colors to represent the candid side of the future bride. That’s why we brought softness and brightness to the images. It was in great contrast with the strong and sweet materials like marble, stone, sweet cake, the tulle of the veil to represent the sweet and strong bride. We wanted an intimate table just for two lovers, with touches of blue and gold for softness and luxury, created by Marie Di Lauro and Verde fleurs.
This venue is always so picture perfect – we hear brides raving about it often! Make sure you put this awesome venue on your list of venues to consider in Provence. We know you will love it!
