Though Dune and Francois’ wedding took place in Croatia, their wedding was perfectly French as many of their guests came in from Paris. The Parisian inspired wedding included vintage fashion choices, amazing views, and the most epic bouquet toss. We love that it looks like the whole town got in on it! DTstudio beautifully captured the day, and the portraits of Dune and Francois’ first moments alone together are absolutely priceless.
Dune and Francois
Histria Aromatica, Bale, Croatia
We really wanted our guests to feel generously welcome in Croatia and at the same time find touches of Paris in the details of the wedding. I personally got very inspired by Christian Dior’s first show spaces with its palettes of greys covering the interiors while being assorted with generous pink hydrangeas.
I won’t lie how difficult it was to find that exact type of hydrangea for the wedding and having it shipped from the Netherlands to our venue in Croatia, but the result was definitely worth it.
Once the overall theme was set it was much easier to decide on the dress accordingly. I went through tons of archived pictures from couture shows until I found a dress Claudia Schiffer wore as the final wedding dress look in a ’70s Chanel show which later on served as inspiration for my final dress.
Walking down the isle with my dad and meeting my husband at the altar was an incredibly emotional and unforgettable moment. My favorite moment besides that was my dear friend Fanny, who is an incredibly talented singer, performing a re-interpreted acoustic version of Peter Gabriel’s ‘The Book of Love’ just before we exchanged our rings. Even though I had prepared most of the mass with her over months we left this part to remain a surprise and we were all completely blown away!
