If you have a true love of books, you will know that something magical happens inside their pages. Something magical also happens when you fall in love, and what better way to celebrate this magic than incorporating your love of the literary on your wedding day?
“This styled shoot is called “Literary Nuptials” and took place in Château de Baronville, Eure-et-Loire in France.
For this styled shoot, we wanted to create a beautiful story, and we emphasized the storytelling. The story we wanted to tell was that of two lovers, Lydia and Charly, in love with each other but also in love with books.
Book lovers Lydia and Charly meet together on the morning of their literary themed wedding to share a few special moments of reading before the celebration of the wedding. Because the year 2020 was marked with challenging times, it mattered to us to put forward the smiles of this young couple, the authenticity of their commitment and the depth of their emotions.
The Château de Baronville was a perfect wedding venue to create a fairy-tale universe.
The organizers, Aude from Aude a Deux Ailes and Maria de Lourdes (“Malu”) from Emoove Paris, had to rise to the challenge of organizing this styled shoot in only 45 days, and it was their first time organising a shoot at this scale.
What Aude and Malu are the proudest of is that they reunited a team of “young professionals” in the wedding world. Some of them are just beginning in this industry: Sainthya from Details Depres, for instance, had just completed her training by the time of the shoot and Aude, the photographer from Aude a Deux Ailes, launched her business less than two years before. All the members of the team are “young” in the world of weddings, but they are all passionate about their work, and very willing to go far.
Shooting in Château de Baronville was such an opportunity for all the team members that they produced a tremendous work. Starting with the idea of shooting only two dresses, we ended up shooting three, which multiplied the variety and aesthetic potential of the shoot.
It intensified the organizing work, but in the end it enriched the storytelling by far, so that we could show the three distinct moments that make a wedding day: a slower-paced morning, the ceremony afternoon, and the dinner.
You may wonder if Lydia and Charly are lovers in real life. Not in the slightest! But a true alchemy was born on the styled shoot day, and both of them were natural and enabled us to take pictures in which they look like real partners.
You may also wonder if the wedding cake was a real one. Definitely yes! And we may assure you that the whole team appreciated the feast at the end of the day. Beyond pretty pictures that came out of it, the wedding cake gave everyone a big moment of celebration at the end of this intense journey.
That reminded us that a styled shoot is not only created for beautiful pictures, but above of all to create human links between professionals of the wedding world and inspiration for brides-to-be to imagine their big day.”
