I have not been back to Paris in 20 years but it felt like I had never left. The traffic is busier & it’s a tourist mecca in May but it is just as beautiful as I had remembered. After arriving from the slower pace St. Remy de Provence, we soon made our way to the outskirts of Paris to the elegant Chateau de Santeny. The grand chateau with its elegant rooms, vintage wooden floors & exquisite molding was a photographer’s dream & a blank canvas for me to flower every room if I had the time!
The shoot began in the drawing room with a simple boudoir session amidst the floor to ceiling windows & gorgeous doors as the misty rain created ambiance & mood for our shoot. I designed a beautiful artful floral piece on one of the ornate fireplaces in the Salon Victoria for our ceremony set & a lush bloomed tabletop outside below the double staircase to the lower lawn. Our lush artful bridal bouquet of peonies, garden roses, ranunculus & hellebores added the perfect touch of luxury to the stunning Inbal Dror gown with an endless ruffled train and fitted bodice. I am in love with the romance of France & Chateau de Santeny did not fail to spark a fire of creativity in me after our visit.
