Does it get any more romantic than eloping to Paris with a suite at the Hôtel Plaza Athénée full of luscious red David Austin Wedding Roses and a bottle of Laurent Perrier on ice? We think not! This stunning city wedding editorial by Janna Brown Design is the epitome of classic elegance and timeless French style. With our breathtakingly beautiful red rose Tess, you’ll need little more than a curve-enhancing gown and flowing Hollywood waves to get the look of effortless elegance that the French do so well.
Sumptuous Red Roses
When displayed en masse in this Parisian hotel suite, our voluminous red roses have all the allure of sumptuous luxury. With no green foliage or complementary flowers, all the focus is on the classic blooms of Tess and the romantic scene that they create. The hotel terrace frames the perfect wedding portrait for the elegant couple celebrating with a champagne tower, surrounded by pops of red with the Eiffel Tower in the background.
Located on the prestigious Avenue Montaigne, the tree-lined boulevard of French fashion, Hôtel Plaza Athénée is a splendid choice for an elopement to the city of love and lights. The hotel’s iconic red canopies and geranium-lined balconies inspired wedding designer Janna Brown to embrace the passionate hue to create a striking city wedding that is sure to inspire lovers of classic French style.
Haute-Couture Wedding Dress
With the hotel neighboured by haute-couture brands including Chanel, Prada and Gucci, a fashion-forward look was vital for this chic couple. A timeless bridal dress is key to achieving the look, such as a classic fairytale ball gown like the Antoinette gown from Australian couture designer, Leah da Gloria. This exquisite design is a modern take on an Elizabethan ball gown, with a grand, billowing skirt and heavily structured V-shaped corset cut in crisp silk dupion. Sculptural pleats accentuate the bride’s natural curves and spill out into a dramatic train, which echoes the theatrical drama of the red roses. It had to be a classic tux for the groom, expertly tailored for a sharp and sophisticated look.
