Always Take Me With You: Drôme Elopement

The Story: The team behind this styled shoot wanted to create something that highlighted the savoir-faire (i.e. knowing how to do something) and attention to detail behind this magical summer elopement. They wanted to show all the possibilities for creating a luxury and intimate elopement in Provence, one of the most beautiful regions of France. 

The Location:  This chic and romantic elopement takes place in a small village called Rochegude (Drôme Provençale) at the fabulous Château de Rochegude. This hotel is a member of Relais & Châteaux and surrounded by the quintessential Provencal lavender fields.

The Vibe: Stéphanie is determined and calls the shots. Andrew follows her through the French castle because she is the one, the only one. This is an intimate celebration but there is no compromise on style. Classic and chic. They pay attention to all the details and they really enjoy that moment including simple pleasures and endless love in the lavender fields.

The Details: Stéphanie’s hair and makeup was done by the talented  Amelie Gouttenoire before slipping into her wedding dress – a majestic haute couture dress designed by Isabella Boutin, a talented designer based in France. To finish off the look, she added jewellery created by L’atelier De Sylvie. and Bella Belle Shoes. The beautiful stationery suite was created by Studio 120. The rings were designed by Aronine and presented in a gorgeous ring box from Voeu du Coeur.

Tips & Highlights:

  • Spending the afternoon at lL’Essentiel De Lavande in Clansaye. Hire a classic care from Legendaires Drôme and take the Lavender Route for an unforgettable experience.
  • Nothing is more romantic than a picnic in the lavender fields. Chic decor from Velvet Rendez-Vous and a local bottle of wine from Bonetto Fabrol Domain makes this the perfect picnic set-up.
