girls just wanna have fun: bridal party inspiration

From planner Rock My Love “As we are fortunate enough to work with a diverse range of nationalities and brides who are not just as beautiful as each other but also quite different from each other, we wanted to be able to showcase an array of make-up and hairstyles to match and enhance their different skin tones, the shape of their eyes and their hair type and textures in this ‘girls just want to have fun’ bridal party inspiration shoot!”

“Since the bridal preparations are such an important part of the wedding day, we created a warm, inviting atmosphere where friends are having fun and sharing some special moments as they get ready for the exciting day ahead.

We needed to pull together a killer team for this shoot and to find a gorgeous location where everyone could relax and the girls could feel at home and enjoy their day – and that’s exactly what we found at the Domaine de Pijaubert in Montauroux! Up we climbed, leaving the world behind to discover a haven of beauty and the most breath-taking views along with plenty of outdoor space and a welcoming house, this is a perfect setting for a Provençal wedding.”

“To get the all-important perfect images of this joyous occasion we reached out to the very talented Olivia Marocco who has such an original eye.  No detail is missed and she knows just how to capture the emotions of the moment.

Of course a video was a must to really bring this girls-only photo session alive and the team from Airsnap were the only men with us on site that day.  A young and creative group who were very excited by this project and were the ones behind the idea of this very dynamic video which perfectly reflects the atmosphere of the day.

Because decoration is such an important element in showcasing the venue, we asked Maud Création Florale to make the floral arrangements. Maud created some very original compositions with a delicate mix of colours and flowers; her bouquets are so unique!”

An eye-catching piece was the wall of balloons where Estelle from Déco et Ballons managed to perfectly mix the right colours to create an amazing visual experience which, coupled with Maud’s flowers, produced a perfect photobooth backdrop.”

“The hanging table is the creation of Céline from By Mademoiselle Déco. Decorated by her team, this pretty table added the perfect touch of elegance to a day among girlfriends.

There’s no way you can miss the mouth-watering pyramid of macarons and nougatine at the centre of the table.  It’s Lila from Vivre d’Amour et de Gâteaux who produced these marvelous cakes! We asked her for lots of colour and pretty shapes and just look at the visual and tasty treat she gave us! This incredibly colourful table of sweet delights with flowers by Maud will surely make all your guests want to skip straight to dessert.”

“A big thanks needs to go to our five beautiful models who laughed and played the part perfectly all-day long. Without them none of this would have been possible.  Anita of Studio Ohlala skillfully worked the girls’ hair to produce elegant, natural styles reflecting their individual traits and personalities. Esther came with her great beauty truck Belle comme un Camion and used natural makeup to enhance their pretty faces, as brides today are asking for a more natural look that doesn’t change their features.

Given the modern style of decor, we needed outfits to go with it.  During the getting ready for the wedding phase, the girls were dressed by Mai 68, a bohemian chic brand specializing in soft textures such as cotton and silk.”

“The bridesmaids’ dresses were specially created for this photoshoot by Atelier Charlotte Auzou in a selection of colourful tones to blend with the inspirational décor and styles to flatter each models’ specific size and shape.  Kim, our bride, wore a creation by Mademoiselle de Guise whose gowns mix materials and dare the clean cuts and graphic lines of a modern, dazzling bride.

Our Cinderellas found the perfect shoes to fit among the made to measure creations of Alix de la Forest where you can choose shape, colour and material for unequalled comfort and personalization!”
