French lovers Ben and Danielle got engaged in a chateau in St Emilion, Bordeaux, so it only seemed fitting for the couple to tie the knot in St Tropez. The pair who live in France, held their ceremony at a local church, with guests arriving by boat.
Knowing she didn’t want a traditional white wedding dress, Danielle wore a silver toned ball gown by UK bridal designer, David Fielden. The gown, which was adorned with flowers and tulle underlay, was everything the bride had hoped for and more. Her choice of non-traditional colour also matched perfectly with her grey and white wedding theme.
Silk flowers and candles hung from the vines of the reception, which was held at the Les de Ramatuelle Hotel. The candelabras, which sat on the tables, were surrounded by scattered white rose petals and entwined with soft coloured roses and vines, setting a relaxed, yet whimsical vibe. And we simply adore the added twist to displaying each table number, with the bride opting to use heart- shaped chalkboards with each table number written in French. Each guest received a trinket box filled with macaroons – oh so French!
Danielle’s aim was to have the decorations blend in with the natural surroundings and complement the picturesque location of the wedding, and she definitely achieved this!
If there’s one thing the French have taught the rest of the world, it’s the importance of true love, great food and even better company.
