We’re off to one of our favorite glamorous beach resorts today for a relaxed wedding featuring a Zimmerman Bride in Saint Tropez!
Saint-Tropez is a coastal town on the French Riviera. Famous for its jet-set lifestyle, the harbour is always full of amazing yachts. Artists fill the harbour and side streets with their amazing talents making the perfect mix of traditional and 21st-century living. Fancy a bit of Chanel or Dior shopping, then here is the place to do it… Tres Chic! We can’t think of a better location for a stylish wedding.
We’ll now pass you over to photographer Thomas Raboteur who captured Chris and June’s wedding in Saint Tropez and who will be walking us through this glorious sun filled day featuring a Zimmerman Bride…
They first met in Zurich where Chris was already working (in finance). June had come from Munich where she is from, and mutual friends organized a meeting.
The marriage proposal was in the water on a beach in the Seychelles in 2018. Chris serves them a drink of champagne at sunset, and showed June a box that contained a ring. June immediately understood. The setting was truly idyllic and they will remember that moment forever!
They chose to organize an unconventional wedding. Their close friends and family were invited to spend a beautiful day and evening in their company facing the bay of St-Tropez.
They imagined this event as a beautiful, long celebration and memorable moment for themselves and their guests. The photos will hopefully bear witness to this!
They opted for a very simple style, a restaurant overlooking the beach, electro to dance the whole night, and guests at the top.
Our best memory was our parents’ speeches, they were very emotional.
A few tips for fellow brides… Trust yourself. Even if your marriage requires much less organization than a traditional wedding, bring in a top team. We enlisted the help of a dj and a saxophonist who made the atmosphere of madness and a talented photographer who immortalized it all.
