Maria | Bridal Editorial in the Arboretum

"Our inspiration came from a forest of magnificent redwoods. It was like a need to go back to the basics, an ode to simplicity. From these trees we let ourselves be carried towards a palette of natural and deep colors. Our beautiful model Maria first wore a dress from the designer Elsa Gary. In an obvious response to our inspiration, the lace takes up the drawing of leaves and comes to play in transparency with the skin. Lauriane was able to capture the moments of pause in this gentle and intense atmosphere beautifully. We had agreed with Melody on a refined but distinctive decoration with an armchair with a strong personality. The beauty treatment carried out by Natalyia was able to perfectly highlight the apricot and terracota hues of the floral arrangements proposed by Marisa from Atelier Graine de Prairie. Specially for the occasion, Laure from De Songe et d'Or imagined jewelry with geometry, matching perfectly with outfits. Switzerland offers so many preserved places that we had the chance to work in two places for this shoot, also allowing a second Elsa Gary dress and a new makeover. We visited an Arboretum, working for the conservation of trees and shrubs around the world. This time, the chosen dress, timeless, combines large Calais lace arabesques with plumetis while revealing the delicate silk. This photoshoot allowed us to discover ourselves a little more. A work of enthusiasts for an invitation to slowness and contemplation."
