J and B, both French live and work in London. The couple has a passion for travel, culture and music. There individual tastes are sometimes quite opposite but generally the same craziness unites them.
Benoit called me mid June for a wedding in September the same year. The couple fell in love with the Château de Robernier in Provence and wanted a wedding where everyone would have great amounts of fun in a natural and refined atmosphere. A real race against time started to meet short deadlines : sending invitations, organising supplier meetings, tastings and deciding on the decoration details. All this in the bustle of the high wedding season ! The planning was hectic, animated by the wish for the Bride and Groom to show the personnality of their couple through this wedding : natural colours and materials, seasonal flowers were a must, a personalised ceremony celebrated by Benoit’s brother and especially a great party with the right music choices.
The indian summer Saturday afternoon was lovely. For the ceremony, the bridesmaids wore colourful dresses and held a bouquet in the shape of a rugby ball as the Julie plays this sport. The Bride wore a silk straight cut flowy dress with delicate lace embroideries and a bouquet of country flowers.
During the cocktail the guests enjoyed the photobooth which was decorated with unique objects on the theme of travel.
The Château courtyard was covered with a crystal roof giving the impression of dining in a veranda lit by a multitude of candles on the tables, around the marquee and hanging from the tree.
No traditional wedding cake for J and B. Instead a large buffet of sweets and Veuve Clicquot champagne fountain to open the ball to a great party with Dj and saxophone.
