The key styling elements of this styled wedding shoot are the urban, rock’n’roll setting of the Purgatory concept store, combined with elegant and timeless decor elements. The use of candles and bouquets brings a touch of romance and poetry to the edgy and slightly rebellious atmosphere.
The two styles of dresses the couple wears, with sequins and lace, add a personal touch and highlight their unique personalities. The light and luminous makeup also reflects their natural beauty and individuality.
The stationery, made through linocut, is both poetic and graphic, with black and white visuals that complement the overall aesthetic of the shoot. The bouquets, composed for the occasion, add a delicate and refined touch to the overall decor.
Finally, the choice of a Bordeaux cathedral for the second part of the shoot brings a sense of contrast and depth to the project, highlighting the diversity and universality of love.
The team behind this project wanted to create an unconventional and uninhibited vision of a wedding while still allowing Alexias and Cloe to identify and project themselves into the shoot easily. In addition, by highlighting a female couple in Bordeaux, they aimed to bring attention to the beauty and diversity of all forms of love.
Overall, the key styling elements of this styled wedding shoot were brought to life by the collaboration and creativity of the entire team, including the wedding planner and designer, the venue owner, and the makeup and decor providers. The result is a unique and memorable vision of love and romance set against the backdrop of a vibrant and edgy urban environment.
Words by Alexias & Cloe
Cloe and Alexia’s love story is proof that sometimes the most unexpected moments can lead to something beautiful. Their chance meeting in Malta led to an intense and obvious connection from the start.
Despite living in different places, they managed to make their long-distance relationship work and overcome challenges together. For them, the key is understanding, supporting, and loving each other even in difficult times.
Their favorite memory together is their first meeting, where they shared a drink, chatted, and danced together. It was the start of something special that they knew they couldn’t let go of.
When asked what they love about each other, Cloe admires Alexia’s angelic smile and her beauty inside and out. Meanwhile, Alexia admires Cloe’s authenticity and spontaneity, making her an exceptional woman in her eyes.
As for the future, they look forward to traveling and experiencing life together. They’re proof that true love can conquer distance and challenges, as long as you have each other.
If they could give their younger selves a pep talk, it would be to surround themselves with beautiful people and live their dreams because life is too short to let others bring them down.
