This Folk style wedding shoot in the South of France
We love when vendors think outside the box with their styled shoots like this Folk style wedding shoot in the South of France. Great vendors are not afraid to play with textures, to mix styles, and really go for it with the decor.
A shoot that was timeless and protective cocoon
Stéphanie Upparin Evidence Capture shares how she created this beautiful woodland wedding shoot, read all the details below…I wanted to organize an inspirational wedding shoot that was very close to nature, that conveyed simple and pure values. A shoot that was timeless and protective cocoon that takes us back to our roots in a soothing and almost magical atmosphere. A folk style wedding to give modernity to this universe.
This was a Pilgrimage site for believers
What was most complicated in this adventure was to find the perfect place. I was looking for “the forest of Broceliande” in the south-east of France where all the forests are dry and full of pines. After a bit of perseverance and after several months of hard research, I found the perfect place. The endemic forest of Sainte Baume near Aix en Provence. A rainforest, preserved, magical and sacred. This was a Pilgrimage site for believers. The path in which we were led, after a few hours of walking, directly to an incredible church carved into the rock.
We wanted to use the forest as a support to create the space for the ceremony. The tree trunk was fully dressed by Sophie our decorator. In the same spirit for the table, we wanted to use what surrounded us. This big stump of a tree, divided into 3 cut trunks, was perfect to raise our table.The message I want to convey is that nothing is impossible. If you want it with all your might, you can make it happen. This project was particularly close to my heart for a long time and I did everything to make it happen. Brides and grooms should have the opportunity to break free from the codes of traditional norms and imagine a marriage that really resembles them by saying “it’s possible!”
We are absolutely feeling inspired by these vendors creativity and perseverance. Great shoots take time and dedication, that really shows throughout this shoot. Thanks to everyone who was involved!
