wedding wear

Real couple Pauline & Yacine did an amazing job modelling for this shoot – their beautiful chemistry adds a whole new level of romance. 

Pauline is wearing a secondhand white jumpsuit from Dressing Club – Its modern and chic aesthetic is perfect for this relaxed elopement. Not only is it effortlessly stylish, but it also embraces sustainability by repurposing a pre-loved garment. This unconventional choice allows the bride to feel comfortable, confident, and free to enjoy the day without the constraints of a heavy gown. The outfit is completed with a veil decorated with pearls – another modernised take on a traditional bridal accessory. 

Yacine is wearing a relaxed tan suit from Faubourg Saint-Sulpice, with an unbuttoned shirt and fresh white trainers. It was important that the wedding wear was suitable for the city and practical to move around in. Besides, what’s the point in dressing up if you’re not comfortable?

relaxed elopement

Embracing the natural beauty of autumn, this warm colour palette evokes a sense of coziness and romance. From fiery oranges to earthy terracottas, this modern twist on wedding colours complements the Parisian backdrop. 

This relaxed elopement took place in Paillettes Paris with an intimate ceremony in the restaurant. Ma Vie de Bohème styled the table with items from Les Déconneuses, using white and orange candles and bottle green vases of seasonal flowers, displayed along a white table runner. The small table for six is perfect for this small wedding celebration, also catered by Paillettes Paris with homemade dishes adding to the intimacy of the day.
