We will now pass you over the talented film photographer Iliasse who will be walking you through this Moulin de la Recense wedding…
“The shoot took place in the historic domaine of Moulin de la Recense, in the middle of Provence, an old olive mill which is a witness of a bygone era.”
“This styled shoot was inspired by the following poem:
“Beauty is found in imperfection and old, instead of perfection (and old instead of youth according to Wabi Sabi), this flaw we can be found on the walls of Provencal architecture, on ceramics, on organic calligraphy gestures. We have chosen an imperfect paper to use for our calligraphy.”
“We can also find this fragility in people’s emotions, non perfect personality and facial traits that tells a unique story. The message of this philosophy is to have the right to be imperfect and accept it as a gift.”
“The role of those frames was to forget anything smooth, perfect, straight or linear and to accept the fragility, the weakness and sadness of the groom and bride’s traits, to present their true faces. To give another definition to Human, Beauty and Love.”
“Film photography was vital for this theme, in order to add some grain, especially in the small chapel inside the Domaine. Also to have more details, to feel the caress, the touch between the couple, or feel more details of the architecture of leaves. Feeling like touching matter is important (hair, ceramics, wall, body).”
“For me feeling is more important than showing, that’s why those images were subjective and I have tried to get far from reality, experience an emotion, an impression, is more important than truth in photography, because photography is art, that can be used to dream. The role of photography was to create another world, to store by deleting to create a space of comfort.”For even more gorgeous Provence wedding inspiration check out this intimate wedding at Chateau de Robernier Provence.
