From the tux and lace to the perfectly round bouquet of roses, this French Riviera fete is classic in every way possible. But what I love most about it? It takes place at Villa Ephrussi De Rothschild, a.k.a. the prettiest PINK venue you ever did see, surrounded by gorgeous gardens and palms. Kind of makes you want to book it right now, huh? Well, you just might once you see the full day captured by Caught the Light.

From Caught the Light... It had long been a dream of mine to photograph a wedding at the magical Villa Ephrussi de Rothschild on the French Riviera and this jaw-droppingly beautiful wedding did not disappoint! Planned to perfection by Lavender & Rose, whose work is always seamless, the bride and groom travelled from the north of England for their wedding celebrations. Opting for pretty opulence with their floral design by Wayne Riley Flowers, they chose to be wed under a luscious floral arch for their outdoor wedding in front of the Rothschild fountains.

For the Black Tie reception, the couple treated their guests to champagne, cocktails and canapés with views over St Jean Cap Ferrat during the Cote d'Azur's famous Golden Hour, with serenades by the beautiful Lizzy Parks, followed by an acoustic set by The Phly Boyz who set the tone for the evening. The couple chose to decorate their tables with hand-designs by stationer Louise Richardson who incorporated elements from the inside of the villa to compliment their stationery suite. Gold-rimmed glassware, an abundance of flowers and pretty pastel hues adorned each table as the sun dipped low over the bay, with supper served just after sunset in front of the fantastic pink facade of the Villa Ephrussi.

Impeccable catering was provided by a Michelin-starred chef courtesy of Jardin des Chefs and more music and merriment was provided by The Phyl Boyz more riotous set. It was so much fun watching guests sing along as the top table swayed and both bride and groom sang along before we all settled down to some emotional and ultimately hilarious speeches!

The bride and groom took to the dance floor as husband and wife en terrasse before leading the party indoors for more live music and a brilliant dance floor set by the French Riviera's finest event DJ, Thomas Dusseune. It could not have been a more dreamy wedding to photograph in such a unique setting with a couple so visibly in love!
