Hotel Crillon Le Brave Romantic Elopement

Romantic wedding photography

Forget big weddings, our gorgeous Texan couple show us how to do intimate and elegant when they eloped to Provence for their nuptials this spring.

We have fallen in love with the stunning views from their wedding venue Hotel Crillon Le Brave. Perched on a tiny hilltop village surrounded by vineyards and olive groves this relaxed and informal refuge allows you to enjoy all of the simple pleasures of Provence.

Each detail of today’s wedding was carefully planned by FWS vendor Haute Wedding who specialise in luxury destination weddings throughout France. They ensure your dreams are brought flawlessly to reality while reflecting your desire for travel, culture and beauty.

Our beautiful bride and groom started their day with a first look after spending the morning getting ready in all their wedding attire. Have you ever thought of including a first look into your big day? It’s something that is becoming increasingly popular and many photographers explain how much calmer their brides are before the ceremony, not forgetting the moment makes for beautiful photographs.

Let’s hand you over to Haute Wedding who will be walking you through todays Hotel Crillon Le Brave Romantic Elopement…provence countryside
