Inspired by Jean-Honoré Fragonard’s 18th-century oil painting, “The Swing,” this wedding editorial shoot combines late-Baroque luxury with modern detailing. An elegant table scape is set in the majestic Orangery of Château de Villette – a 17th-century château that simply oozes French luxury and opulence. From the garden-inspired florals to the hand-dyed silk linens, every element of this design palette was intentionally selected to complement the depth and lavishness seen in Fragonard’s painting.
The couple is made of modern aristocrats; fashion-forward and cultured, with a love for finer details and old-world charm. The Milla Nova “Grace” bridal gown mirrors the subject’s pink dress in the painting, full of beautiful movement and drama. For a more playful look, the “Tilda” gown by Alon Livné White offers excitement and romance, featuring a high ruffle collar and stunning over-sized bow at the back. Last but not least, Alon Livné White’s “Huntley” jacket paired with a slim two-piece ensemble evokes a more flirtatious and modern look, mirroring the risqué composition in Fragonard’s piece.
