In need for some wedding inspiration? Welcome to the Villa Tosca on the Arcachon Bay in France. For this inspiration wedding shooting we choose an exceptional venue in France, coupled with the subtle yet unique association of vibrant colors, emerald-green and mustard-yellow tones.
The Villa Tosca, an exceptional wedding venue
The Villa Tosca is an exceptional wedding venue ideally located on the ocean shore. Facing the clear waters of the Arcachon Bay, it is a small paradise. From the gardens, the view on the blue horizon is amazing. Moreover, the Villa Tosca is a warm yet luxurious house. Therefore it is a perfect place for small families who wish to gather in an intimate cocoon to celebrate a wedding on the beach. Authentic, it is a place where you truly feel just like home.
Wedding inspiration with emerald and mustard tones
For this inspiration wedding shooting, in collaboration with the wedding planner Christelle Guégan, we first started by creating a moodboard with all the different steps of a real wedding: first look, secular wedding ceremony, dinner on the beach, couple photo session. Looking for a warm, elegant yet original atmosphere, we choose the emerald-green and mustard-yellow colors. The wedding decorator Le Grenier de Mon Cœur brought her precious embellishment advice, in collaboration with the floral artist l’Atelier Septembre and the graphic designer Mademoiselle Mouche. And always in harmony with the wedding theme as well as the emerald and mustard tones.
Bride and groom’s wedding clothing
By choosing to photograph a real couple in life, we aimed at enhancing the true feelings and emotions between two lovers who have known each other for a long time. In order to perfectly play the game, Pauline and Alexandre got prepared separately. The bride wears a dress and accessories by the creator Manon Pascual, from Bordeaux. The groom wears a Blandin & Delloye tuxedo. Furthermore, the jewels D’Estey are a subtle reminder of the colors of the wedding’s theme. Once her make-up done by the make-up artist Virginie’e and her hair Expression Coiffure, the bride is finally ready. She looks splendid.
While the couple is getting prepared, wedding planner, floral artist and wedding decorator are decorating the different set-up. Especially a nice dinner table on the beach. It is a beautiful and sunny spring, everyone is feeling happy and positive. Just like a real wedding, we decide to start the wedding photo shoot with the first look session. This way, Pauline and Alexandre discover each other for the first time in their wedding clothes. It’s a wrap and the emotion between the two lovers is quite moving.
A wedding on the beach of the Arcachon Bay
Following the wedding on the beach of the Arcachon Bay, we are heading towards the oyster bar where we enjoy a nice refreshment. Then comes the time for the non-religious ceremony.
Pauline and Alexandre are not married but they really played the game. On the beach, they simply exchange their vows as well as their wedding rings by Claire West Joaillerie. After that comes the moment for the couple photo shoot, shared between the beach and the Villa Tosca. Finally, we headed towards the beach for a romantic dinner with the sound of the waves of the Arcahon Bay. A unique evening captured by the film maker Thierry Nguyen.
In conclusion, this day was featured by an excellent working atmosphere on top of a perfect symbiosis between all the wedding service providers. This inspiration wedding shooting was a real success. I believe this great team work can be felt by looking at the pictures. Thank you very much to each and every one who participated.
