Happy Monday everyone. I hope you are all well and happy and ready for a fun packed week ahead. We have a gorgeous week planned for you on the blog starting off with this fabulous South of France wedding at Chateau Eza and Chateau de la Chèvre d’Or from Philip Andrukhovich.

This stunning venue is based in Èze, a commune in the Alpes-Maritimes department in southeastern France. The 400-year-old chateau overlooking the Mediterranean Sea is a lavish boutique hotel just 8km from Monaco and 20km from the Italian border at Ponte San Ludovico. The beautiful bride and grom also had a photo session in Chateau de la Chèvre d’Or as pictured in the image above.

Our beautiful bride Sarah wears a stunning backless Pronovias wedding gown for her hill top ceremony, I’m sure you’ll agree the views are just breathtaking, what a perfect spot to say I Do!

So grab a glass of something cool and lets head off to the French sunshine for a few moments…South of France Chateau Wedding

Eze wedding

Sarah and Pedro wanted a small wedding with just a few family and friends attending. As they lived in Nice a few years ago it made perfect sense to go back to this beautiful area. Eze village was their first choice because on visiting they fell head over heels in love with the area. They quickly contacted the venue who were very well prepared allowing Sarah and Pedro to proceed with their wedding plans right away.South of France Chateau Eza Wedding

Our bride Sarah shares her advice to other couples planning their wedding en France…

“We were very lucky, because in just three months we organized the wedding with the hotel. If other couples wish to marry in Eze, I highly recommend the hotel Chateau Eza. They gave us all the information needed from the florist to the photographer (I recommend both). I did not want my hair done in the room, so I went to the village salon… my hair stayed better than I had imagined. The dinner at the hotel was fabulous. Also, I’d recommend to put on background music for your guests on the terrace during the cocktail hour.”

Photographer Philip Andrukhovich shares a few of his memories from the day…

“Eze village is one of the most beautiful places for a wedding on the French Riviera. There are old streets, wooden doors and stone walls. Around every corner you can find a new story, a new picture. A beautiful couple in wedding attire harmoniously and easily fits into the scenery.”Hill top wedding ceremony

“In addition to the old streets of the city, we had a photo session in the beautiful gardens of Chateau Chevre d’Or. This is a magnificent garden. The most important event of the wedding day – the ceremony was held in Chateau Eza. It offers a magnificent view of the sea and on the peninsula Saint Jean Cap Ferrat. Saying your vows at this breathtaking spot evokes great emotions for the couple and leaves an everlasting impression.”Chateau Eza Wedding

“I am grateful to Sarah and Pedro for their confidence to photograph their wedding day. They were open to new ideas and filled with love for each other. It’s easy to photograph a couple when they trust and love each other so that it can pass on this love all around.”Backless Pronovias wedding gown

  • These photos are fabulous, and what a dress! I’m a little confused, as the Eza doesn’t have a garden of any kind; perhaps they went into the Chevre d’Or for photos as well? Or up into the ornamental gardens at the top of the village, which is what my couple did last year.

    Thanks for this, it’s always good to see how other weddings are in places I’ve been!
