Wedding inspiration direct from Provence, France can only ever be a good thing, right? And since we knew Paris-based photographer, Greg Finck, had some seriously lovely French-infused style, sharing this next shoot (inspired by nature and the organic beauty of raw plants) was definitely a given.
Greg worked with planner + designer Majenia to stage this editorial at La Bastide de Marie. He tells us, The city of Ménerbes (celebrated as one of the most beautiful villages in Provence) is full of treasures, stone ramparts and little paved streets which lead the way to the rich historical heritage of the town. Countless artists, amongst whom Pablo Picasso, have responded to the call of this generous territory bathed by beautiful Provence light. It wasn’t really difficult for us to choose Ménerbès as the backdrop of our vegetal styled shoot.
With all the lovely shades of green, this feature felt like the prettiest way to end St. Patrick’s Day…
Majenia, the art director, with an impeccable test as usual, directed the whole thing and styled the scene, table, and food. She hand-made all the coppered dishware, painted the candles, and designed the food table, made of zucchini tarts, green peppers, and green melons. Laetitia C. took care of the floral design with her usual talent while Emilie Green perfectly enhanced our models’ effortless beauty. We wanted to come back to basics with this styled shoot, and propose something very close to the nature.
We love how the elements of green mingle beautifully with organic touches of raw wood + brass.
And such gorgeous gowns seen in this editorial thanks to Rime Arodaky!
We wish we could be whisked away to Provence this afternoon…what about you? Thanks so much to the talented team below for sharing this lovely editorial with us!
Have a safe + fun St. Patty’s Day, friends!!
