Good morning lovelies and welcome to another wonderful week here at FWS! We are kicking the week off with our gorgeous French Riviera Villa Ephrussi de Rothschild Wedding. This venue really is magical! We’ve seen first hand what this historical villa can offer its guests and it’s safe to say you won’t be disappointed!
Villa Ephrussi de Rothschild is situated in The Beverly Hills of The French Riviera. The Villa overlooks the Bay of Villefranche and is located just 10 kilometres from Nice and Monaco. Not only will this prestigious pale pink villa dazzle you with its beauty but the musical gardens will keep you mesmerised for hours! Can you imagine the Musical fountains playing out a grand aquatic ballet while you marry your Prince charming… Dreamy!
Our gorgeous bride and groom Sharveen and Martin did just that when they held their romantic ceremony in the grounds of the villa overlooking the Bay of Villefranche before benefiting from some spectacular wedding portraits, what better place to have your wedding photographs! The newlyweds then enjoyed an evening of delicious food and dancing.
“It was for sure one of the most beautiful venues on the Côte d’Azur that we found for Sharveen and Martin to celebrate their wedding. Sharveen is from Mauritius and Martin is from Sweden and the couple traveled all the way from their home in New York with friends and family in tow.”
“With beautiful weather on the French Riviera, the day began with preparations in hotel Le Méridien on the Promenade des Anglais, Nice. The couple stayed in two gorgeous suites overlooking the sea, and enjoyed a morning of pamper including hair and makeup.”
“After getting in touch with Label Emotion Côte d’Azur in search of their wedding organisation, the planning process commenced in the search for quality services, imagining the decoration, entertainment, music, imagery and beauty treatments… Everything was finely combed in order to make this day a truly unique and personalised moment. Sharveen played a huge part in the planning of the day and put her amazing organisational skills to use!”
“Later in the day, the couple had their first meeting in the Hotel de la Chêvre d’Or where Martin awaited Sharveen on the terrace overlooking a stunning sea view; a really emotional moment where Martin laid eyes on his beautiful wife for the first time in her wedding gown. The couple then took some time for their private photoshoot before the wedding commenced. They explored some stunning views, resulting in delightful pictures. They took a vintage car to explore the most gorgeous spots found by their wonderful photographer. Charming stone alleys, floral backdrops, sea views and a romantic tower, the photos speak for themselves…”
“The day continued later in the evening with an intimate ceremony on the Baie de Villefranche sur Mer overlooking the sea, accompanied by the classic music of a string trio. They then proceeded to the Jardin à la Française of the Villa Ephrussi where they enjoyed cocktails and canapés around the villa’s lake.”
“As the night drew near, the wedding moved to the dining area, prepared in front of the villa with views of the grounds. The space was set with rectangular tables and a round sweetheart table for the bride and groom who shared a romantic candlelit dinner. The decoration was made up of pastel blush colours, white roses with splash of pink to compliment the colours of the villa: simple but chic with gold and bronze vases and hundreds of candles lighting the scene.”
“As the evening drew to a close, the party moved inside to the reception room of the villa where guests danced late into the night to the DJ. The dance party was lit up with pink lights, and decorated with plush white furniture. Finally the night ended with the cutting of the pièce montée and a romantic first dance.”
Congratulations Sharveen and Martin from everyone here at French Wedding Style!
