Eloping to Paris must truly be the most romantic thing you could ever do. It sounds cheesy but Paris has a magic to it that no other city has and if you've never been, you absolutely must book a romantic getaway there immediately. This super cute couple live in Paris and I just love the laid back, bohemian style to the fashion and details - it reflects their vibe as a couple perfectly. Images come from Nesta Lloyd, whose dreamy style has captured the beauty of Paris and the couple so well. Enjoy this one lovelies, it's got me dreaming of romantic trips away, after all, Paris is always a good idea...
Nesta The Photographer: These two creatives, real life engaged Parisian couple Yasmin and Frederico were just the sweetest. I jumped at the chance to shoot this elopement with them in Paris. It was my first time to Paris and I absolutely loved the city, exploring and getting lost around the streets and stopping in cafes to warm up with coffee and tasty treats (it had snowed all week before I arrived, it was pretty cold!) Just soaking up all the art, bohemian feel, culture and the street scene was amazing. I can easily appreciate why it’s got a reputation for being one of the most romantic cities in the world. The shoot was very last minute (just as an exciting elopement should be!). We wanted to create a very natural and bohemian feel and let the authenticity of the couples emotions really come to the forefront of the images. With the city and the vintage showroom as the perfect back drop. Yasmin wore a stunning and relaxed, long sleeved, guipure lace gown from new British bohemian bridal brand Shikoba Bride. It was perfect on Yasmin, the dress has a gorgeous laid back feel and was the prefect choice for the setting. Long sleeved lace wedding dresses are literally my obsession right now! The little tassels on the sleeves are an added bonus! Atelier Carmin Flowers provided the bouquet and button hole, Nathalie was so lovely and took on board my vision and crafted a beauty of a bouquet. It was full of poppies, anemones, delicate roses and foliage, tied with aged pink vintage ribbons. Perfectly Parisian elegance and boho all at once. Amy Swann provided the stationery, if you haven’t already seen her work you are seriously missing out. If only one of her cakes could of travelled in my suitcase too! The stationery tied in perfectly with the vintage settings and bouquet colours. Within Paris we used a few locations around the Eiffel Tower and also dashed over to Vaisselle Vintage where we shot the indoor, intimate shots and took full advantage of her beautiful showroom. I wanted to take every single vintage prop and gorgeous bit of tableware home with me!
