We’re super excited to be able to share with you the beautiful Real Wedding of Marion and Charles. This globetrotting duo with roots in France and Ireland will make you green with envy when you feast your eyes on their stunning wedding.
Living together in New York, this French bride and Irish groom had a tough time deciding where to say their I dos! With friends and family coming from France, Ireland, England and the US, they finally decided that the South of France was where they wanted to celebrate their love for eachother. And so, they gathered all of their nearest and dearest and said their vows in Provence, France.
The couple knew exactly where they wanted their wedding to take place and quickly began their planning! They opted for an intimate ceremony in a small Provencal Church and chose a beautiful castle fit for a princess and prince for the evening reception. The Grimaldi property near Aix in Provence was where they decided to declare their love for one another.
To tie in with the rustic feel of the venue, they decided to incorporate lavender throughout their wedding day. Label’Emotion’s planners in Provence helped to organise and plan the whole thing to perfection. The decorations in the church were simple and elegant; lavender and olive leaves were beautifully tied together and placed throughout the venue, while the alter was arranged with flowers and candles, creating a romantic atmosphere.
After the ceremony the bride and groom, acompanied by their closest friends and family, headed to the castle. There they were greeted with a contemporary cocktail reception along with some tasty nibbles! The venue was beautifully decorated thanks to Label’Emotion Provence. Everything was simple and natural, which created the most breathtaking atmosphere.
The seating plan was uniquely presented with whiskey bottles and sprigs of lavender which showed guests where they would be seated. The evening meal was held outdoors on the terrace. The scenic views, natural elements and carefully placed lighting made it the most exquisite setting.
The intricate details in this wedding really blew us away! Tables were decorated with candles in all shapes and sizes and surrounded by beautiful floral centrepieces. Menus were placed together with napkins and tied up in a bow with old twine and a sprig of lavender, which added a rustic, vintage-chic feel.
A beautiful, rustic table was set up which contained a guestbook and little bottles of olive oil which were carefully wrapped in twine with springs of lavender for each guest as a keepsake. Some old crates were stacked nearby, which contained blankets for guests in case they got a bit chilly throughout the night. Together, the couple, and wedding planners, really did think of everything!
All of these little details, together with the beautiful clear blue sky made for a perfect wedding day!
