Matin à Paris – Romantic Paris Elopement Inspiration
It was Audrey Hepburn who said, “Paris is always a good idea!” and she was so right. The city of romance with its culture, history, and incomparable landmarks – we’re talking the Louvre, Sacré-Cœur, Moulin Rouge, Champs-Élysées, Notre Dame….. *sigh* I could go on and on – it is my favourite city! Everything about it makes Paris the perfect place for the most unforgettable proposal, an intimate elopement, or a chic city Honeymoon. As today’s exquisite editorial shows, all you need is the one you love, some elegant attire, a beautiful bouquet and of course a fabulous photographer to capture every love-filled moment…..
Sweet newlyweds Inez & Felix’s love story began 9 years ago at a training center, and they have been the most important person in each other’s life ever since. Finding the dreamy city of Paris mesmerizing, it was their first choice when it came to planning their honeymoon. And whilst visiting they couldn’t resist the chance to capture their love anew with a romantic shoot that all came together perfectly with a little help from some super talented local wedding professionals!
Inez chose the a Watters bridal gown in the prettiest shade of pink from Run for the Dream, and finished off her look with heels in a hue to match from KUKLA Fashion Design, a Vera Wang veil and hair adornments from Down the Aisle Atelier. Whilst Felix looked oh-so-dapper all in black.
Florist Akiko of Florasion Paris shared this little snippet about the bouquet….. “The bouquet was a gradation color bouquet using brown ranunculus, cafe au lait roses and cream color flowers.
I loved the brown color ranunculus so I created the bouquet so that the brown ranunculus will be eye catching. Colors were inspired by Spring and paintings. The floral arrangement brings the romantic and moody feeling for the overall styling.”
And the lady behind the camera, the lovely Lara Lam, added: “Inez and I worked together on building an elegant and effortless atmosphere. We selected a blush tone to match with the soft morning light in Paris. The two were so deeply in love and their emotions brought the whole shoot alive.”
Spring time in Paris…. so dreamy! I am so in love with all those wonderful Paris landmarks and skylines….and of course fine art photography of the inimitable Lara Lam. A huge thankyou to her as always for capturing Inez & Felix and the romance of Paris so flawlessly, and to all of the wedding professionals who lent their creative talents!
