Coral and Ivory French Riviera Real Wedding
Some of the team are prepping to travel to France next week for a few days of wedding planning (did you know Editor Sara also plans weddings for the international style house Pearl & Godiva?) so it's only fitting that we dive into a stunning French Riviera real wedding from our favourite French film photographer, Greg Finck Photography. The landscape, the scenery, the epic architecture, we can clearly see why any couple would want to host their destination wedding here in Saint-Jean Cap Ferrat! Styling duo Lavender & Rose Weddings created a colour and elegant setting for Maryam and David and we just adore bride Maryam's Rime Arodaky gown!
From Greg Finck Photography: "Saint-Jean Cap Ferrat is the perfect location to tie the knot on the French Riviera. Ideally located between Nice and Monaco, this small peninsula just calls for summer laziness, turquoise seas, and easy breeze lifestyle.
That’s the location, which was chosen by Maryam and David, for their glamorous and chic wedding. A fabulous summer day, perfectly designed by the superstars of Lavender & Rose Weddings, in the splendid venue Villa Ephrussi de Rothschild. The day started with bride preparation at Le Grand Hôtel de Saint-Jean Cap Ferrat, a fabulous palace hotel on the shores of the Mediterranean Sea. An elegant stationery suite had been designed by Mister M Studio, reflecting the glamorous mindset of this wedding. A stunning Rime Arodaky gown and some Jimmy Choos perfectly enhanced Maryam’s natural and effortless beauty, while the groom had chosen a bespoke tuxedo and a bow tie for timeless elegance.
We then took Maryam and David to a cliff near the sea for their first look. We found a deserted place by the beach for an intense and emotional moment, which will never be forgotten. Ceremony then took place in the splendid Villa Ephrussi de Rothschild, which had been perfectly prepared and designed by Lavender & Rose. Receptionists with flower crowns welcomed the guests, giving them their escort card and a rose, while a jazz band was playing. The stage for the reception had been glorified by the floral design of Wayne Riley Flowers, and everything was ready for a perfect sunset wedding ceremony.
The cocktail then took place in the gardens of La Villa, with fine food and wine by Lenôtre, a famous French caterer. The day finally ended with an elegant outdoor diner and a splendid table design. The culmination of a fabulous summer day on the French Riviera."Greg Finck Photography Greg Finck Photography Greg Finck Photography Greg Finck Photography Greg Finck Photography Greg Finck Photography Greg Finck Photography Greg Finck Photography Greg Finck Photography Greg Finck Photography Greg Finck Photography Greg Finck Photography
