When Molly and I decided to put together an editorial shoot in Paris, right from the start we wanted to showcase a location steeped in history, with a magnificent architecture, mixing art and culture.
The Rodin Museum is all this at once but it is also a romantic, serene, almost intimate place. It was the perfect backdrop for the first part of our shoot.
With this editorial, we wanted to celebrate femininity and the Parisian chic.
We created an elegant, glamorous aesthetic with both timeless and modern touches, deliberately embracing the “less is more” philosophy.
We created an intimate and minimal installation for ceremony, using the green wall as a natural background.
The dinner table was set on the outside terrace, right in front of the mansion in order to showcase its shining rocaille architecture.
We used a warm color palette with both pale and bright pinks, whites and pale yellows in order to create a joyful atmosphere. We wanted the floral design to feel organic and effortless, as if we just cut these gorgeous roses right from the garden.
We also wanted the table to be elegant and both modern and timeless so we incorporated ivory and golden touches, used a classic tableware, simple table linen, calligraphy escort cards and geometric chairs.
To complete the design, we wanted to add an old word charm touch. The calligraphy, handmade paper, gold wax seal of the paper goods brought this timeless elegance that we were looking for.
Paris was our second main source of inspiration so it felt right to finish the shoot showcasing the most beautiful parts of the city of love.
