Elegant, floral and ethical French abbey editorial
This BEAUTY of a wedding photoshoot has everything I love most. It’s French, it’s filled with flowers and golden sunshine, and the styling and details are from sustainable brands – ethical weddings being one of my favourite things for 2021 and beyond. And oh, it’s proof that ethical weddings can be insanely beautiful. Huge thanks to lovely Pauline from Calypso Events for sharing this with us, and to the entire team for their work in creating such a breathtaking collection of images.
We only used ethical and responsible products, such as the flowers, the dress, and the rings. It was really a huge part of our concept to produce something beautiful that was completely ethical and respectful of the environment.
The flowers are all seasonal blooms from an organic farm. The napkins and ribbons are natural hand-dyed. The dress is made of 100% bio gore-tex cotton. For the guest favours, we choose little soaps made by hand, organic and biodegradable (and they smelled like paradise!) . The rings with fair trade silver, were made by the groom for the bride, and vice versa.
It was important for us to show to our couples how we could imagine a 100% eco-friendly wedding without compromising on sustainability or beauty.
We choose a beautiful old abbey on a brittany cliff. We wanted to meld all the nature around with our work.
