Good morning lovely FWS readers and welcome to another wonderful week! We are kicking this week off on the sunny shores of The French Riviera. The wildly romantic rocky shores of Cap d’Antibes was the perfect location for this gorgeous French beach wedding inspiration shoot captured by Amanda Karen Photography.
The shoot brought together a talented bunch of suppliers who wanted to bring a touch of romance to this stunning backdrop. Amongst the suppliers was one of our very own talented FWS vendors Azur Flowers. Covering The French Riviera and Provence, Azur Flowers understand the importance of flowers for your wedding. They will help with the design of your dream flowers for your big day from your buttonholes to extravagant flower walls (now we think that sounds amazing!). So if you’re looking for a lovely florist for your French Riviera wedding be sure to get in touch with Natasha.
If you love soft hues and romantic blooms you’re going to love these images. We especially love this off the shoulder floaty gown from Heart Aflutter Bridal Boutique. Anyway enough from us, we will now pass you over to Amanda who will be walking us through todays wildly romantic French beach wedding inspiration…
“Over the years, these shores have become film sets or playgrounds for the rich and famous. Their beauty has also inspired artists such as Picasso and iconic writers. So, when I was searching for an extraordinary location for a bridal inspiration shoot, there really was nowhere more perfect.”
“The inspiration for the shoot came from the wild and natural location but I also wanted to keep the look and feel very soft and romantic. The colour palette included rich purples and dreamy peach tones in abundance so it was feminine with a touch of drama.”
“Our bride absolutely reflected the untamed beauty of our location. Her tousled, undone hair and barely-there makeup by Aglaia were both beyond perfect. A Leanne Marshall wedding gown from bridal boutique Hearts Aflutter was equally unstructured and moved beautifully in the sea breezes.”
“Azur Flowers created a loose and natural bridal bouquet that added a real depth to our bride’s look. The darker tones created a striking contrast and the hand tied arrangement were finished with heavenly trailing hand-died silk ribbons from Kate Cullen. These mirrored the movement of our bride’s gown in the most exquisite way.”
“Our secret cove in Cap d’Antibes also provided a memorable location for our a deux table setting. More vibrant flowers cascaded from their vase onto the rocky tabletop that was given a luxurious feel with silk table runners from Kate Cullen in purple and peach. Crockery by Anthropologie also played with contrasts and the delicate glass plates and heavier ceramic bowls worked wonderfully together.”
“The oh-so appropriately named By Moon and Tide created truly charming stationery for this shoot that again mixed light, elegant calligraphy with textured heavyweight card. The fine lines and hand-drawn elements were just divine.”
