Key Tips for a Monaco Inspired Wedding

After the recent crowning of yet another beautiful Princess.  We look to the wedding of Prince Albert of Monaco and Charlene Wittstock in the small Principality of Monaco for wedding inspirations for your big day.

Nestled in the heart of the sunny Cote d’Azur, Monaco conjures images of high society, palaces, princes and princesses, with its dramatic cliffs overlooking the harbour bountiful with expensive yachts, fast cars and of course those notorious Casinos.


So if you want a wedding dripping in Monaco-style glamour, here are some of our tips…

For all out glitz and glamour go formal with tuxedos, black tie and ballgowns.  Lavish guests with a champagne reception and light up the evening sky with dramatic wedding fireworks.
