French Chateau + Chapel Inspiration


Whenever I hear that Sylvie Gil's photography workshops in France are just around the corner, there's no doubt in my mind that the crème de la crème of wedding styling and imagery are soon to follow.  Photographed at the Chateau de Varennes, (rated by CNN as one of the top 10 venues in the world) classic styling and light-filled scenes are rich with creamy blush undertones and striking wine-coloured accents.  Captured on film by Artiese Studios of Toronto, Canada, the dramatic setting and elegant details seem cozy as opposed to cold, which proves that grandeur and decadence need not override intimacy and nuance.  Perhaps my favourite aspect of the entire shoot is the glorious chapel, airy and bright with its show-stopping altar arrangement of florals and custom candles by Holly Flora.  What stands out to you as the pièce de résistance?  For more French inspiration here on Vale + Vine, check out this real wedding in Canada's heartland, and this anniversary session from Dordogne, France.
