Guide to Your Destination Wedding in Monaco

Destination Wedding in Monaco

For the eighth installment in our guides we are heading to one of the most famous areas of France to provide you with some wonderful inspiration for your destination wedding in Monaco.

The small principality of Monaco sits on the Mediterranean coast of southeastern France and is well known as the playground of the rich and famous. With its many luxury hotels, boutiques, nightclubs and restaurants, upscale casinos, yacht-lined harbor and the prestigious Formula 1 Grand Prix race it’s no wonder Monaco is such a popular tourist destination, everyone definitely makes sure to get the sports betting tips from Sun Bets before visiting one of its Casinos.

So why not come on a little tour with us of Monaco and its surrounding areas and find out if it’s the perfect destination for your wedding…Wedding venue French Riviera

We’re starting off our tour a mere twenty five minutes drive from Monaco at one of the most stunning venues in the area that also just happens to be located in what was once the second most expensive residential area in the world after Monaco. We’re heading to Villa Ephrussi de Rothschild in Saint-Jean-Cap-Ferrat where Maryam and David held their glamorous wedding.

Not only is the villa itself a sight to behold but the musical gardens and panoramic views must be experienced. Just imagine you and your beloved having an outdoor ceremony surrounded by all your friends and family in such an unforgettable location.

On to the chic real wedding in Monaco of Mackenzie and Oskar. As many of you will know, in France you legally have to be married in the local Mairie’s office first. This legal ceremony can take place the same morning, or as in the case of Mackenzie and Oskar, a few weeks before your wedding day.

Once you have completed the legal formalities and you and your guests are all settled at your chosen venue why not head out with your photographer for a wander around Monaco to get some gorgeous portraits. You can find a detailed selection of wedding photographers who cover Monaco and the surrounding areas here.Mairie's office Monaco

  • Lovely choice of venues including my two favourite places, The Villa Ephrussi and the Grand-Hotel-du-Cap-Ferrat! I conducted two weddings at each place this year, my only caveat being that the Ephrussi is open to the public every day so weddings professionals aren’t allowed access to set up until closing time. This resulted in my last ceremony (late September) being conducted as the light faded and I found it almost impossible to read the ceremony!
    So, lovely brides, be sure to start your ceremony well before sunset if you can…
    The last wedding you feature was one of my first ever ceremonies, you can just see my folder at the edge of the picture.
    What a lovely couple Sam and Olivia are, and the setting was perfect!
