Doing an inspiration shoot in the desert was a major departure for us. Our regular scene is elegant Parisian mansions and romantic French châteaux! The launch of our satellite office in Dubai and sister brand Fête Event Planning was the perfect excuse to do something different. So we dove right in and explored new colors, textures, and ambiances. We were delighted when news came that the inspiration shoot would appear on Wedluxe. But we were over the moon when we discovered that the feature was the front cover of the Wedluxe Global Trend Report!

The main sources of inspiration was the intricate motif of the Iranian Mosque in Dubai. The gorgeous palette of colors was the perfect spark to get our creative minds working.

The paper goods elements were original creations by Studio French Blue. The unique calligraphy style used a back-leaning slant to mimic arabic script.

We created a cosy seating area by framing the space with bougainvillea plants. The woven rug and cushions in tones of blue anchored the setup. Accents in brass and orange gave a bit of pop and shine.

Dubai has incredible resources when it comes to having things custom made. We decided to design a dress that would be flowy and beautiful in the desert breeze.

Thank you to the incredible team of creative partners who helped bring the vision to life!
