Art Nouveau Theatre Wedding InspirationPhotography - Thibault Bremond
Old theatres are places where rich colors, history, architecture and romance combine, making them an unconventional but perfect choice for a venue. And today’s styled wedding shoot, in the magnificent theatre of Quimper in Brittany, France, captures all of the above, as well as the sweetest love story!
Thibault and the team shared these words about the inspiration behind their vision….“The idea for this shoot came from the majestic facade of the Max Jacob Theatre. One of the most important monuments of the city of Quimper but far too often forgotten.
Art Nouveau is the central theme because the theater was built during this period. All of the design and decor details: the dishes, the stationery, the colors of the macarons and the cake design; refer to this artistic influence.
The flower arrangements, created by the talented florist Chloé, of Les éphémères bring shades and motion to dress the stage perfectly in accordance with the features of the wedding reception.
The picture, of the famous actress Sarah Bernhardt, on the wedding cake by
Dessine Moi un Cake directly refers to Alphonse Mucha, the well known artist of the period.
The second scene, bathed in the soft light of the setting sun, occurs on the steps in front of the theatre. The floral arrangements hugs perfectly the staircase handrail in a natural way with warm colours reminiscent of the inside of the theater (red, pink and purple). The majestic facade frames the lovers and seems to protect them.”
The whole story is captured by Thibault Brémond’s lens. His eye and his ability to play with light (and occasionally the lack of it) gives character to the pictures and unveils the remarkable beauty of the theatre and the design details brought by the professionals.
A video was also made by Ian Videography that captures more of the details and romance of the venue. It’s only a few minutes long and definitely worth a watch….
As always, huge thanks goes to all of the vendors who worked together to create this romantic shoot, but especially to Thibault Brémond for capturing all the details so perfectly. To see more of his amazing work, head on over to his website at www.thibaultbremond.com and follow him on Instagram.
