Bathed in sunshine and bright yellow and green hues, Call Me Madame's styled photoshoot in Burgundy, France oozes quaint, countryside charm with modern air. We love the fresh mix of citrus fruits and florals, Fine China and crystal, and the bride's breezy, vintage-inspired outfit with the barest hint of lace. Have a stare at the photos below...
A word from Call Me Madame's Director, Alice Dentan:
The idea for this shoot started with a skirt...
I was trying to clean my attic a bit and found an old suitcase, heavy and covered with dust, behind a cabinet. After many efforts and a few grunts, I managed to open it, revealing many old clothes and souvenirs from my family: lace gloves too old to be worn again, a flat hat, outdated glasses... nothing really interesting. And then I saw the skirt. THE skirt.
It all came back to me: my grandfathers telling me and my sister its story. It was the skirt my grandmother wore for her engagement party, more than 60 years ago. I couldn't help but picturing it worn by a contemporary bride. How elegant and sophisticated that would be !
I created a fresh and citrusy theme, to bring some coolness to our very hot summer in France. As a tribute to my grandmother, I also used some vintage tableware belonging to my family.
