This grey wedding inspiration on a secluded beach along the French Riviera has us rethinking our summer vibes. These muted tones create such a dramatic touch paired with a stunning backdrop to match. Sarah Stefani shares more about the process behind the photos, let’s dive right in…
We wanted to provide a beautiful wedding inspiration to get married on the seaside of the French Riviera. We wanted to create something different from the beach wedding on the sand that we are used to seeing, so we brought in our own dramatic flair!
This styled shoot used different shades of gray. Because, yes, gray also has a place in weddings. We picked a place accordingly and found the perfect seaside location with gray pebbles and gray rock formations all around. The idea came from the wedding designer Ricci Floral Creation. She wanted to show an organically inspired decor at the edge of the sea. In this logic, we chose tableware rich in texture and material, as well as an authentic wooden table. But that’s not all, in addition to the organic side, we wanted a smooth fluid shoot so we chose this beautiful dress in windy sandstone, reminding us of the foam of the sea. Our installation was made more comfortable with cushions placed on pebbles closer to the sea. The cozy atmosphere of this intimate installation is accentuated by the materials such as wicker, wood and the natural materials of the decoration on the table. We wanted to reflect something warm but muted and we were quite successful. This session was fully photographed in film which is known for highlighting materials, movements, and light.
The last thing we wanted to put forward is the theme of the sea. For this, our wedding designer used marine decorations such as starfish and shellfish. The textured stationery is reminiscent of the old parchments allowing communication between ships. But that’s not all, the inspiration from the sea is also found on the bride and not only in her dress as said above – we chose a fluid hairstyle that is wavy reflecting in the sandstone of the wind and reminiscent of the waves. It was a dangerous shoot when we had to face the marine elements. The broken waves lapping against the rocks. The foam of the waves is deposited on the dishes and decoration and on our bride passing from rock to rock. Thanks to this great team we managed to get the expected and exceptional results. We sincerely hope that this shoot will please you as much as we enjoyed working on it and will inspire you for your wedding by the sea on the French Riviera.
