Sydneysiders are crazy about their brunch, and why not? With the cafe culture booming, Sydneysiders are blessed with good cafe food at every corner of the street. But the question remains. Can a brunch be elegant and if so can a brunch be a wedding? La Vie En Rose is here with us today to prove to us, yes! Indeed you can have an elegant brunch for a wedding. But think less hipster cafe and more Downton Abbey on a Sunday.
Let’s toss the ideas of late night reception parties and welcome in the new age of early birds and fresh-looking brides. Intimate is the word of the day in this lovely set up dressed in pink and peach. La Bride is simply just blown away and if you’re thinking about straying away from the norm and doing something different, why not this?
La Vie en Rose, Brunch s’il vous plaît !
As more and more brides move away from tradition in order to be more unique and individual, pre, post or wedding day brunch is a very good alternative.
A Sunday morning wedding that last up to late afternoon, brunch weddings are ideal for early birds couple with a small wedding party and want an intimate, unique setting for their special day.
Brunch is also a good way to set out the guests after the wedding.
La Vie en Rose shoot showcases a lush brunch. “It’s not because it’s a brunch that it has to be low-key.”
The photographer Nora Mancini wanted to have some pink shades which should pop up when photographed with the palm trees in the background. Having said so, for the scenography Marie Christelle Berthelot Wehrli choose to use colour shades with soft pastels colours and give the whole a modern touch by using transparent elements.
The romantic setting of “Salon La Côte” balcony of the Carlton Hotel Cannes, overlooking the Mediterranean. Simply divine….
We opted for the Eloisa dress from Modelatti, the hair stylist Natanja Fleckenstein styled a side swept esque ripple waves with a touch of old Hollywood-gone-gorgeous, perfect for the côte d’azur weather. The whole accentuated by barefaced beauty make-up by Gorica Atanasova. The rings are both from Meister. Shoes from Lele PyP bring a pit of sparkle to the outfit when they peeped out under the gown.
For the centerpiece design, Tabea Maria-Lisa worked with pink hydrangeas, talea roses, sweet Avalanche roses and candy Avalanche roses. All together about 200 flowers were used for this lush and opulant “objet d’art”. To top it all each guest was given a rose, delicately placed between the napkins. Creating a mesmerizing guest experience.
To keep the whole look harmonious and delightful, Christelle went for beige linen with matching napkins folded in wave movement to remind of the ocean. All the glasses are from the Ciselé collection, pure glass with delicately carved motif in the glass. The cutlery all silver from Art Deco range. The Napoleon crystal chairs which add to the contemporary feel of the scene All from Options.
Some pink raspberries Luxemburgerli ( they are smaller than your classic macarons and juicier ) were added together and for the cake raspberries mini mousse cakes coated with almonds, all from Sprüngli.
