Shangri-La Hotel Elope in Paris

paris wedding views • Images by Studio DelimodelsJustine Huette is a wedding planner in Seine-et-Marne, where she is surrounded by many areas and farms. Many of her clients opt for rural weddings and unintentionally she feels like she has specialized in this theme. So she wanted to step outside of her comfort zone into a more glam space.  She decided to stage an elopement in the famous Shangri-La Hotel in Paris to show her eye for French elegance and fine details. She says the choice of service providers and the location were paramount! Let’s hear more from her…

The capital is full of incredible places because of its architecture, history, gardens, monuments, and unusual corners. bride with stained glass window • Images by Studio Delimodels grooms details photo • Images by Studio DelimodelsThe Shangri-La Hotel is a luxury palace, located in the heart of Paris. The suite they put us in was modern and had an exceptional terrace overlooking the Eiffel Tower. The panoramic view of this terrace overlooked the city as well as the most emblematic monuments of Paris. This shoot offered us an incredible landscape. The Shangri-La team allowed us to take pictures in the most wonderful places in the hotel and we thank them for it! paris ballroom wedding • Images by Studio Delimodels groom in sunnies • Images by Studio DelimodelsIt was important to me to have a “real” couple with real history and real emotions. A couple that could allow future brides and grooms to envision themselves in the same day. flowers with couple • Images by Studio Delimodels rings and writing • Images by Studio DelimodelsEsther & Thibaut are both very beautiful and very in love.

My choice is then focused on Delphine Studio Delimodels. Having already worked several times with her I knew that it was the right person who loved photographing the details! stationary • Images by Studio Delimodels brides details for wedding • Images by Studio DelimodelsFor the bride’s wedding dress, I chose an elegant and French-inspired gown. Marie-Pierre from the Cymbeline boutique in Fontainebleau joined my team to showcase a beautiful gown. We chose the romantic, sparkling, sensual and trendy “Dove” dress.

The shop offers thousands of different items, colors, and materials. Together we opted for a sky blue suit, a novelty in 2019, that will inspire the future grooms for the next season. cheers black and white • Images by Studio Delimodels black and white in palis • Images by Studio DelimodelsFor accessories, we used pieces from Atelier Sarah Aime. The shoes were from Draw Me a Shoe.  I called Amarilys Green Beauty to help this bride get glam for the day and she wore a Faith Cauvin kimono during the pre-morning prep. pink candle sticks and flowers • Images by Studio Delimodels table top deco • Images by Studio Delimodels kissing in france • Images by Studio DelimodelsAs for the idea for the shoot, I wanted a minimalist universe with noble materials and light colors for a poetic, fresh, and light spring shoot. kissing in front of tower • Images by Studio Delimodels paris florist • Images by Studio DelimodelsThe table linen was loaned to us by Mademoiselle Coton and the gilded glasses and cutlery were from Options to bring refinement and elegance to the tablescape.
