Read what the creators of the shoot have to say below:
The starting point for planning this shoot was the colour. We knew that we wanted to incorporate shades of purple, but naturally moved towards a dominant blue colour with crimson and amethyst accents.
Overall Style & Inspiration
Once the colour palette was set, we began to think of the style of shoot we wanted to create. Because of our French heritage, we have always been immensely inspired by our country’s history and after seeing a piece of royal blue Toile de Jouy fabric, we were set on a regal and decadent theme.
We began researching châteaus in France and came across Château Challain. We were able to use several parts of the property, from the château steps and formal dining room to the tower for the ceremonial shots.
We wanted our grooms to fit the colour scheme while retaining their own personal style, hence the navy suit and patterned blue tie, to the bright blue suit and pink tie.
Our stationery by the fantastic De Winton Paper Co. combined both nature in the delicate floral border and the majesty of the venue, with a bespoke watercolour illustration of Château Challain.
In keeping with our overall theme, Dea-licious Gateaux created for us a stunning three-tiered royal blue cake, complete with gold detailing, frame accents, edible pearls and sugar flowers.
As much as we wanted to keep the ceremony shots relatively simple, we chose to make sure that the reception looked as regal as possible, with a matte gold cloth, polished gold cutlery, matching crockery, with a feathered mat beneath. The chair cushions were covered in electric blue fabric and the glassware, like the chandeliers hanging over the table, was cut crystal.
The flowers supplied by Mister Brett Events at Château Challain were an integral part of this shoot. The arrangements in the ceremony shots were very purple with hints of pink, while the display in the dining room blended white, crimson and purple with foliage and branches, for a luxurious yet wild feel.
