Happy Monday, everyone! Today I'm trying to ignore the cold weather by sharing a selection of images from a styled bridal shoot that I photographed this past spring (and pretending for a moment that it's April again). As I sit here preparing this post with a cup of tea in hand and a hot water bottle on my lap, what better than a little dose of sunshine and flowers to start the week off on a positive note?
The inspiration for this shoot came from the exquisite location itself - an orchard full of cherry blossom trees located in the gardens of stunning Parc de Sceaux, situated only a short train ride from Paris. It’s truly a hidden gem (especially given that the trees only flower for two weeks of the year). Photographing amongst the masses of pink just after sunrise was nothing short of magical!
Our timeline was rather tight (especially with the often unreliable Parisian weather and the very short blossoming season) but thankfully the lovely Coralie from Loli Events shared my vision and helped plan everything to perfection. Keeping the team small, the details limited and the colour palette neutral allowed us to focus on producing a series of simple and free spirited photographs that showcase the true beauty of such a dreamy setting here in France. Hair and make up artist Trine Juel created a flawless and romantic look for our stunning model Eugénie, who wore a gorgeous Meryl Suissa design just as beautifully as we had envisioned.
Have you witnessed the gorgeousness that is cherry blossom season at Parc de Sceaux? Where are your favourite springtime locations in your corner of the world?
A special thank you to Monique of French Wedding Style for sharing these photos this month! xo
