Château de Carsix Bridal Shoot by Claire Morris Photography
Le coeur a ses raisons que la raison ne connaît pas”

”The heart has its reasons which reason knows nothing of
— Pascal

To love in France is to love sweeter. To love deeper. To be swept away in the world of romance that eludes so many. To love in France is to be full of passion. Full of desire. Full of amour. Inspired by this love, today's Château de Carsix Bridal Shoot by Claire Morris Photography is full of beautiful French inspired elements and we're simply amoureux. 

From photographer Claire Morris: "Everything about this inspiration shoot makes my heart flutter.  We wanted to create a shoot that would radiate soft, feminine, romance and beauty. Choosing elements that basically made us swoon. After months of working together with Jennifer at Avec Weddings we entered our fairytale Chateau in Normandy and lost ourselves in a story of a girls wedding day dream."

From Avec Wedding & Events: For our wedding editorial, Claire Morris Photography and I were inspired by the romantic French properties with lush green lawns and old world charm that Normandy, France provides. We chose Château de Carsix, as our beautiful backdrop.

To create the organic, luxurious and fresh ambiance with accents of seasonal fruit, we decided to feature a color palette of soft ivory and hazelnut tones with whimsical pops of warm coral pink and soft greenery.

The amazing Estelle Preston Flowers brought our wedding floral inspiration to life by using a mix of coral and snow white hypercium berries, garden roses, eucalyptus and lime green vibernum in the 2 wedding bouquets, table center pieces and back of chair florals. Jane from Beauté FX created a sweet floral crown for one of our bridal looks.

Paper Birch Designs created all of our paper goods including the wedding invitation wrapped in organic fabric and wax seal.

Custom lace lingerie and veils from The Lace Atelier and wedding gowns and veils by Cathy Telle showcased our boudoir and wedding theme perfectly. Bridal accents include vintage ring, velvet ring box, wedding shoes and hair accessories.

With all of these romantic, dreamy details combined we were able to bring our vision to life!

I truly believe we find ourselves in the right places at all the right times needed for our evolution and growth.

Photography is my gift and longing to know love had been my quest and is my story.

Weddings allow me to dream and to hope.

Love Stories allow me to believe it’s possible.

Love gives meaning to our existence; to love and to be loved gives us peace, we feel happy, we are cared for and supported in life. It makes us healthy and vibrant and able to send that love we receive to all others.

This is why such a celebration as marriage is one of the greatest celebrations in our lives.

Let your love story inspire.
