Luxuriously Lavish at Château de Villette
The Story: A glamorous couple celebrating their union in a timeless and elegant setting. Our bride, Susanna, is a strong and glamorous woman who commands the room. Her beau, David, is a charismatic romantic. He has left a little surprise for her in the boudoir – a bewitching Cartier ring that brings out their animalistic instincts for one another.
The Location: Château de Villette is an iconic château. Part of the Heritage Collection, this château is a 17th century architectural gem. Entirely renovated and surrounded by classic French gardens, Château de Villette is located only 40 minutes from the centre of Paris. This exclusive venue is the perfect getaway for private individuals looking to celebrate in style.
The Vibe: Sensual luxury and red carpet glamour. A refined high-end occasion with a hint of urban edge. This celebration is all about the finer things in life all the way down to the sporty Jaguar bridal car. Black and gold are woven throughout the event’s design including in the stationery suite and eclectic tablescape complete with wild animal figurines and donkey-shaped candles.
The Details: The team designed three different bridal looks – sensual, glamourous and iconic. For the wedding look, the team used soft Hollywood waves for old world glamour. Susana wears handmade jewellery from le temps d’une Walima. A quick change into a gold-gala dress by Miria Couture sees our bride transformed into a queen. David wears a black tuxedo by Parisian designer, Jean De Sey.
- A love table for two in the salon decorated with flowers and fruit arranged in an antique fruit bowl gilded in gold and bronze.
- The floral design had a modern edge achieved by using a monochromatic colour palette.
- The avant-garde wedding cake which takes inspiration from the majestic qualities of the rhinoceros, combined with grapes which symbolise abundance and earthly pleasure, wrapped in bronze liana vines believed to be symbolic of the link between Heaven and Earth and is topped with golden macaroons.
