Wedding at Chateau de Tourreau in Provence
A summery and chic destination wedding at a stunning wedding venue in South of France
Our summery wedding was set in the beautiful Provence, which is a province in Southern France. A region full of stunning landscapes with a lush flora due to it’s mediterranean climate. Olive trees and pomegranates are very common in this area. But what this region is also known for, is it’s unique and precious perfume manufactories. So for this wedding in Provence, we developed a concept that includes typical elements from Southern France. The main aspect being perfume manufacturing. While many ancient societies commonly used perfume, it was the French that made it a luxury item. Fragrances are difficult to catch in pictures, so I focussed on the main ingredients – flowers and petals, like jasmine and orange blossoms as a key ingredient to many perfumes. A fragrance is also very light and delicate and we included that element as well. The wedding venue in Provence was easy to find, as there are so many stunning buildings. Chateau de Tourreau was just perfect for this wedding.
The fairytale-like wedding venue in Provence: Chateau de Tourreau
South France has so many beautiful wedding venues. And this wedding venue in Provence is definitely one of the most beautiful. The wedding venue is a romantic and quaint, but also luxurious castle. Chateau de Tourreau was built in the 1750s in the heart of the Provence. It is surrounded by old cypresses and has a huge garden with a fountain and several suits, farmhouses and a pool which contribute to the luxurious charm. The colors of the location itself are mostly neutral so that the lovely window shutters in a mint green really stand out. Our color concept is also in soft colors such as a light dusty rose, as the perfume motif should be accentuated with that.
Perfume was the main motif of this wedding in Provence
The motif is most prominent in the floristry. The bridal bouquet and the centerpiece are made with jasmine, scented rose and tuberose which are all flowers used in the perfumery. In combination with olive and pomegranate, the flower arrangements truly represent the Provence itself and also our interpretation of perfume. The delicate shapes of the flowers and of the surrounding cypresses are great for indicating the metaphor of perfume through the photographs.
Within the table decoration, we used a velvet table cloth in light dusty rose and paired it with beautiful tableware from Vista Alegre. The subtle pattern of the plates can also be found in the glasses. Small details like this one are often the most important ones. The dusty rose color palette also continues in the plates. Golden accents like the filigree cutlery or the golden wood of the chairs really make the design more elegant and therefore matching the location.
The styling of the bride and the fine details
An absolute highlight of this styled shoot is also the wedding dress from Mira Zwillinger. The white tulle appears very light-weight and the gorgeous 3d floral applications capture our motif just perfectly. The jewellery and the headpiece of the bride is also very floral inspired. For the stationary, we had the location illustrated on the paper and a dusty rose print to fit into the color palette for this shoot.
