Earlier this year we planned the beautiful wedding of E&D.
With guests travelling from the US, the UK, Sweden and a bit everywhere around the globe, we ought to plan a wedding that everyone would enjoy and never forget!
The couple chose two venues to hold their weekend events. The first one is a very well known luxury hotel and wedding venue in Gordes, Provence. The 5 star hotel was the perfect spot for this pre wedding cocktail event, with views over the gorgeous landscapes of the Luberon. A cocktail reception with champagne, rosé and canapés was served in the gardens of the venue, entertained by a lovely local guitarist / singer duo.
The next day was the wedding. For this main event, the couple chose a magnificent chateau that has been recently entirely refurbished. With features such as a pond, an olive grove, a precious small chapel, a beautiful courtyard, and views over vineyards, this chateau in Provence has absolutely everything you could dream of for a French destination wedding in Provence.
The wedding ceremony was held in front of the beautiful facade of this provencal chateau, dominated by a majestic double staircase which we decorated with natural – like climbing roses.
Following the ceremony the couple and their guests were served refreshments, champagne and canapés on the grounds of the chateau. The guitarist/singer duo was back with a different repertoire to bring a soft, relaxed atmosphere to the afternoon.
The dinner was held in the courtyard of the chateau, lit with festoon lights. A strolling band entertained the guests during the dinner and made the party start on the dinner chairs!
After dinner guests were taken back to the cocktail reception space, turned into a disco. The dance floor was set up under a giant plane tree, from which a beautiful chandelier and falling fairy lights were hanging, bringing a magical and super romantic feel to the space.
The next day a relaxed brunch was organised on the other side of the chateau, by the pool and the vineyards. With lots of fun pool inflatables and a live DJ, the afternoon was enjoyed by everyone.
