Greenery wedding

Greenery wedding style

I was contacted by Rosie’s grandmother who has a splendid property in Auribeau Sur Siagne. She explained to me that since her childhood, her granddaughter couldn’t imagine getting married in an another place. We obviously understand why 😊

But of course planning a wedding in a private property, this asked some specific arrangement to transform their ground to a punctual reception venue to welcome the 180 expected guests.
To install infrastructure such as reception tents, a dance floor, furniture, a generator for the electricity, autonomous toilets, lighting … And yes, a wedding in a private property can’t be improvised.

Rosie and Jon, a lovely couple from London, wanted to invite their families and friends for a 3-days wedding between the French Riviera and Provence.

Here is the program for this intense weekend:

Friday: A cocktail reception was organized on the private terrace of a great restaurant in Mandelieu la Napoule. A cozy place, background music and a beautiful sea view. A good start to your stay.

Rosie is the co-founder of The Own Studio. Designers with a store of wedding dresses and wedding outfits in London. She wore this magnificent jumpsuit for the occasion. For more details click here.

Saturday: Unfortunately we had to face an apocalyptic and very rare weather in July. The whole region was placed in Orange Vigilance for risk of severe thunderstorms and floods … torrential rain, hail, wind, we had everything and yet nothing nobody could taint the good mood of the whole guests, invited for this beautiful greenery wedding.

End of cocktail, no need to invite the guests to entrance under the reception’s tent, the rain takes care of it for me … Everyone runs to take shelter under the large reception’s tent.

Long and beautiful tables are set up and decorated with foliage, pin with white flowers to stay in a very vegetal and greenery theme. Candlesticks of different sizes, a splendid mismatched vintage tableware, transparent golden frames, beautiful wooden chairs, in short a greenery wedding decoration as I love to work on them.
