Following on from our recent guide to your destination wedding in Paris and it’s success we have decided to create another guide for all you lovely FWS readers. This time we are heading to the south of France to focus on another beautiful area in our guide to your destination wedding in Provence. I know I’m a little giddy at the thought of all things Provencal too!
As we all know Provence is a breathtaking part of southern France with glorious sunshine, elegant countryside and picturesque views abound it’s the perfect place for a summer outdoor wedding with your nearest and dearest. It’s no wonder so many people choose to get married here.
However, as with any destination wedding, not knowing the area or vendors can be somewhat daunting and not always the easiest task to coordinate on your own! So we have compiled a guide on getting married in Provence featuring real weddings for inspiration and many highly recommended Provence wedding vendors from photographers and planners right through to celebrants and entertainment.
So without further ado get yourself comfy and imagine the Provencal sun warming your face as we guide you through this fantastic part of France…
If your’re looking to have an elegant wedding in Provence then our happy couples elegant wedding at Domaine de la Baume is full of wonderful inspiration from silver Jimmy Choos to beautiful florals and hair and makeup from local Provence vendors. This wedding was perfectly captured by Maya Marechal who’s images show off the beauty and elegance of an outdoor wedding in Provence.
Here at FWS we appreciate that all our readers are different and with that in mind we thought we would switch styles now and show you a few ideas for a vintage theme like Laura and Gabriel did at Domaine du Pourret.
A wedding in Provence lends itself perfectly to a vintage theme due to there being so many wonderful historic venues dotted around and the incredible varied landscape. Just imagine finding your perfect venue and arriving in an iconic vintage car as your chosen method of transport, it would all just go together wonderfully.
