A lovely and beautiful provencal wedding in Domaine de la Presidente on the French Riviera. M & R are one of this couple you feel immediately confident. They are genuine and easy going. Exactly the type of couple who are really invested in their wedding. I was sure their wedding will be a gorgeous wedding and I was right, this day was so perfect.
M & R got married in august at Domaine de la Presidente in South of France in the french riviera (close to Nice, Monaco and Saint tropez). This venue is a typically Vineyard of this country with Stone house, natural lawn, green landscape around and of course delicious wine. They chose to make a provencal wedding so what best location for that ?!
M is a Russian girl. For this event she invited her family in France. That is a big deal but there’s no big day with no big deal, isn’t it ? And you know why ? Their all were presents !
Then we did her getting ready not so far in a room at Golf Saint Andréol only with her mother. It was intimate. I felt lucky to witness this moment. About R, it was on his parent’s house at Solies Pont with his father. When they were ready, we will go to the Augustin’s church for the ceremony. This is an ancestral stone church with gothique style. It was so important for us to celebrate their wedding in this church, first because religion is such important for M and second because they would love a church with a big heritage.
After the ceremony, it was time to relax, we went to the location Domaine de la Presidente. A lovely vineyard perfect for provencal wedding. This place based in the department of the Var was so authentic. A little cocktail waited for us. And while the guests were having a drink we shot groups. I love to do some funny pictures during this moment. It was also nice because bridesmaids wore blue dresses. I love when bridesmaids are matched ! After their opened the big cocktail. This is one of my fav moment because there are lot of real laughs. And I love laughs. Everybody are more relax, stress go away.
During this wedding, I was so lucky because M & R wanted a long couple session. We had time to do something beautiful during the sunset ! There were a bit shy, very much in love. Also, wind were with us. I love windy couple session because it’s create lot of movement in bride’s hair and dress. It’s immediately livelier !
Because the wind was blowing too hard, tables seted up inside. However the room matched with the rest of this provencal wedding. Moreover, on tables there were some olives trees for a provencal touch. Guests gifts were on rustic small glass jars closed with burlap. At the end, M and R did their first dance with sparklers. An emotional moment where french and russian people were united. Final Provencal touch, the wedding cake decorated with olive branches.
