Hey lovelies and welcome to another wonderful week here at French Wedding Style, we are kicking this week off with a glamorous black tie luxury Villa Florentine wedding inspiration planned by our very own FWS vendor Celebrate – Weddings & Events.
This beautiful styled shoot held on the rooftop of Villa Florentine has blown us away, there are so many gorgeous details, the perfect inspiration for a luxury French wedding. From our brides sparkly Monique Lhuiller gown to the perfectly designed wedding table decor each element oozes elegance.
Celebrate – Weddings & Events who create timeless, elegant, stress free weddings in France wanted to show you that you can find breathtaking hidden gems in other cities around France other than Paris. Based in Lyon they can offer you a complete wedding planning service for your destination wedding in the South of France, Provence, Alps, Lyon and Lake Geneva area.
“By letting us care about the most important day of your life, you benefit from our sharp organizational skills, our carefully selected black-book of vendors and our very astute attention to details.”
“I remember the first time I visited the Villa Florentine. I knew this 5* hotel was quite renowned for its exquisite sense of service and beautiful view over the rooftops of Lyon. What I didn’t know back then is this serene feeling you experience when you stay there. I never thought one could feel so quiet and peaceful in a hotel just in the heart of the city.”
“Overlooking the French capital of gastronomy this beautiful wedding venue offers over-the-top services. Perched on the hillside of the historical Unesco heritage Old Town of Lyon you will undoubtedly fall in love with the beautiful view it offers over the rooftops.”
“The idea of our styled shoot was to show to foreign couples who consider getting married in France that you can also find hidden gems in other cities than Paris. So, together with a team of dedicated local vendors, we put together this romantic and chic atmosphere in the city of Lyon, less crowded but not at all less attractive.”
“Each vendor involved in our shoot had the mission to create or provide something romantic and chic…with a slight modern twist. Our cake-designer Rêves et Gâteaux provided the exact wedding cake I had in mind: simple, refined, with a modern touch. So did the invitation-designer and the calligrapher!”
“And our floral designer Franck Hernandez created something completely unique that we are very proud of: very romantic under-plates made of sophisticated soft pink and white flowers.”
“The dancing part of our shoot was very spontaneous and unplanned. Our model (and a real bride-to-be at the time of the shoot) felt so good on the poolside of the hotel with the view over the city that she started to dance and play with her beautiful Monique Lhuiller gown. For sure one of the best memories we will all keep from the shoot! Something I wish more couples will experience when coming to tie the knot in this beautiful place!”
