Happy Monday lovelies and welcome to a brand new month here on FWS. Getting this month started we are whisking you away to the glorious south of France for a Domaine de Patras real wedding.
The wedding of Sarah and Laurent took place at the wonderful Domaine de Patras in the heart of the Provence countryside and was the perfect venue for them to reconnect with close family and friends having lived abroad for numerous years.
We are sure you will agree that todays feature is flowing with natural, relaxed elegance and that’s without even mentioning Sarah’s gorgeous backless lace wedding dress from Odile Leonard or our grooms Doran and Doran suit. These two definitely know how to turn on the style.
It is also impossible to talk about this sun-drenched affair without mentioning the gorgeous floral displays and bouquet from talented wedding florist Nessa Buonomo or the wonderful attention to detail paid by wedding planner Wanderlust Wedding.
So, without further ado it’s time for us to hand things over to Saya Photography from Studio Ohlala who will be guiding us through todays Provence Domaine de Patras real wedding…
“The wedding of Sarah and Laurent is all that is expected of a French wedding. These two are French and they have settled in New Zealand for several years. Nostalgic of the life “à la française”, they gathered their friends and family around a friendly, simple and elegant wedding in Provence.”
“The Domaine de Patras was so peaceful this morning, the time to discover and get to know its inhabitants, dogs, cats, chickens and donkeys! Lavender danced to the rhythm of the wind, releasing its fragrance into the air. Sarah and Laurent’s wedding is a true journey of the senses, we can imagine the smell of lavender, rosemary, and the song of the cicadas, the softness of the sunset on the landscape.”
“For them the most important thing was to spend a pleasant moment with the most important people to them. Their families and friends all gathered for this special day in all simplicity: a western ceremony under the shade of trees, a cocktail in the inner courtyard of Domaine de Patras and a dinner on a long table like a ‘guinguette’!”
“The talented wedding planner Wanderlust Wedding was charged with creating a wedding in their image. Simple and sophisticated. The place is sublime, the floral arrangements are inspired by Provence by Nessa Buonomo who worked organic arrangement with dried flowers, to highlight the rustic and sophisticated side.”
“Having been away from the France for a long time, it was around big tables that they wanted to meet! To share good meals with the flavour of Provence and France! Bread, cheeses and wines! A VOTRE SANTE!”
Congratulations Sarah and Laurent from everyone here at French Wedding Style!!
