It’s a bank holiday here in London. The perfect day for a long afternoon, lazing in bed. And if that includes gorgeous make-up, sexy style and dreamy florals, even better!

Today, we’re sharing a head-over-heels gorgeous bridal boudoir shoot by French wedding photographer, Patrice de Guigné. 

And it’s everything we love about French style, cool, romantic, and impossibly chic.

Boudoir shoots can be difficult to get right (see our tips for keeping it classy!) but this one has it spot on.

Seductive attire, that’s still oh-so-pretty, dreamy lighting, gorgeous, natural hair and make-up – oh, and don’t forget, utterly beautiful photography!

Speaking of which, we’ll pass you over to the lovely Patrice de Guigné to tell us a little more about it…

From the Photographer

I have wanted to make a bridal boudoir photo shoot for a long time. Being specialized in wedding photography, I wanted to highlight the beauty of the bride, all in emphasising her sensuality.

It was in a castle near Paris, called “Le Château de l’Hermitage” that I found the inspiration for it. It’s a beautiful place, very glamourous, with a special light.

The shoot lasted for three hours. Cindy of Strenga Make Up looked after the makeup and hairstyle, We used two outfits lingerie, with soft colors, and the flowers and  flowers crown were creations from Jarvil.

It all fit so well to Katia. Everything happened perfectly.

Katia’s beauty and her easiness to pose in front of the camera, were amazing! The shoot was as a dream.

Isn’t it beautiful? Such enchanting, natural lighting, and what stunning photography? I just adore the lingerie too – so alluring, and just the right amount of sexy. French boudoir shoots are always the most chic, don’t you think?

Thanks so much to the wonderful, Patrice de Guigné, and her talented team of colleagues for sharing it with it.
