We have such a gorgeous gypsy inspired bridal shoot to share with you all today that is rich in colour and rich in gypsy bohemian wedding inspiration.
Inspired by the Provence region and ethnic countries such as India, Spain and Morocco, cake artisan French Made, photographer Bodart Studio and wedding florist La Fabrique d’étoiles filantes wanted to create a shoot that infused different aspects of gypsy culture into one diverse bridal look and the result is really quite inspiring.
We love the gorgeous colours in this shoot, from the flowers to the cakes, everything just works so beautifully together and you can see the ethnic influences through the decor and styling of the bride. She most certainly has a Spanish vibe about her and the Elsa Gary dresses are perfectly suited to the gypsy chic styling.
Lauren from French Made talks us through the shoot.
When Provence Met The Orient….
Same time last year, Artur from Bodart studio, Aude from La Fabrique d’étoiles filantes and myself successfully collaborated on a cool vintage rustic Provence inspired photoshoot so I could not wait to go back to Marseille, my home town to do it again!
On this one, Provence is still a strong inspiration but this time we wanted to open up onto new horizons by adding ethnic influences such as a bit of India, a pinch of Gypsy Spain and a tad of Morocco, which makes our region so beautifully diverse.
La boutique de Jeanne with it’s huge range of boho inspired furniture and decorations as well as its elegant old-fashioned caravans parked outside the shop was THE perfect location for it. As well as being a stylist and an interior designer, Jeanne has a passion for cooking. In her book called ‘La cuisine des amis en Provence’ she reinvented some Traditional dishes from Provence by adding spicy flavours that she brought back from her travelling. So suited to the theme of our shoot!
La Fabrique d’étoiles filantes brought such a lovely array of very colourful blooms such as sunflowers, burgundy carnations and red roses. Alexia, our Franco-Spanish gorgeous model wore two amazing dresses by Elsa Gary’s new collection. Beyond Vintage designed some cool gypsy inspired invites, I, Lauren from French Made created two cakes, a semi-naked single tier with a touch of red, decorated with delicious bespoke Calissons – Traditional sweets from Aix-En-Provence by Déclaration Gourmande and another two-tiered one, very colourful, wrapped in different patterns printed on rice paper. And last but not least, the whole thing was captured by our super talented photographer, Artur from Bodart Studio.
