Thank you to Dustjacketattic for pointing me in the direction of this unique and stunning wedding set in the beautiful French country side, just outside Paris.
The bride, Kelly d'Halluin (nee Kapica) was inspired by an 18th-century pastoral festival,the fête champêtre for her wedding to Nicolas d'Halluin.
This vision came to life at the seventeeth-century Château de Breteuil, where three hundred guests enjoyed cocktails in the gardens, a candle-lit dinner at a single long table on the terrace and dancing in the Château's grand salons.
"Arty, decadent, a bit Oscar Wilde and Cecil Beaton with room for natural imperfection" imagined Kelly who styled the event herself.
Stéphane Chapelle, a renowned floral designer mixed butterflies from Deyrolle, grouse feathers, orchids, ferns, mint, and peonies tied with antique ribbons to create the fantastic bouqet.
Crystal vases were filled with bouqets of sweet peas, roses, mint, mushrooms, and dainty grass racemes gathered in leaf-lined crystal compote.
I personally love the dedication to the theme; the mint green with chocolate touches are carried throughout the styling of the whole day; the flowergirls pretty mint dresses with chocolate sashes, the place settings and even the grooms vest.
