From Kyoto to Lyon: A Unique Fusion of Cultures in a French Castle Wedding

Location: Lyon, East of France

Located just one hour away from the city of Lyon, the story unfolds in the enchanting Domaine des Halles. Here, the bride and groom, a Japanese couple enamored by the French art de vivre, chose to celebrate their love. Eager to experience the essence of an elegant and intimate French wedding, they invited no less than 40 guests to join in their unique celebration.

Early in the morning, the couple began their preparations in one of the castle’s luxurious suites. The bride, initially dressed in a tailored bathrobe for the pre-wedding photos, later, with the assistance of her close friends, gracefully slipped into her signature Mademoiselle Reve marriage dress. She then adorned herself with a veil, delicately hand-embroidered in Provence, bearing the phrase “Until the end of Times.” On the other side of the castle, the groom, along with his groomsmen, donned a tailored tuxedo. In these moments of anticipation, he took the time to write his vows, eagerly awaiting the first look with his bride…

A Floral Ceremony and Intimate First Look at a Chateau Wedding Venue

Following the preparations, the couple met each other for an intimate first viewing and subsequently went to meet their guests for the ceremony.

Meanwhile, the florist had created the most beautiful flower arrangements, which resembled an indoor garden in one of the reception halls of the chateau. There, the gorgeous flower girl, the officiant, the musicians, and the singer, along with their 40 guests, were all gathered for an unforgettable ceremony.

A Tea Party and Dance Under the Stars at Domaine des Halles

As the sun began to set, the newlyweds and their guests transitioned from the heartfelt ceremony to a charming outdoor tea party. The tables were adorned with an array of vintage and unique pieces, each adding a touch of old-world charm to the celebration. Elegant china, delicate glassware, and ornate tablecloths created a scene straight out of a classic romance.

The atmosphere was filled with laughter and light conversation as everyone enjoyed the carefully selected assortment of teas and exquisite pastries. The tea party was not just a break in the day’s events but a moment for everyone to connect and share in the joy of the occasion.
