Planning

The sun is shining and the gorgeous serene and tranquil styling by D'amour et de deco of this inspiration shoot is washing over me and putting me in a rather jolly mood indeed. The dreamy French Riviera location is mind blowing and the exquisite foliage decor only enhances its natural beauty. Plus the fashion is to die for. Simple clean lines, incredibly elegant and stylish to boot. I literally can't think of a better way to spend an afternoon then pouring of this dreamy set of images by Purewhite Photography. So sit back, relax and get ready for pure escapism and pretty.
Elisa the Photographer: The theme of this editorial was naturally inspired by the amazing venue : the Bastide du Roy, historical house located in Antibes on the French Riviera. And more particularly by its numerous and majestic gardens from which emerge a peaceful and luxurious atmosphere. Vanessa, the stylist of D'amour et de deco, has taken over the elements of this natural setting to create the steiing : old rough stone potery, fern, vegetalized arch, linen, minimalistic ceramic tableware and subtle metalized touches to add a sense of slendor to the whole. Fashion wise, the outfits are simple yet elegant and all the luxury is about the materials : crepe silk, cashmere, silk, cotton ... Exquisite simplicity. The work of the head jewelry created by Mignonne Handmade, the magnificent wedding ring with this diamond shaped as a pear imagined by Alice Magnin, the refined calligraphy of Nice Plume with a beautiful sketch of the Bastide, are so many details that combine in harmony with this romantic atmosphere. Elisa and Adriano, the duo behind Purewhite Photography, have made the best of this fabulous light that is so specific to the South of France to sublimate the complicity of these lovers and create images full of charm and merely magical.
