Wedding in the South of France

As you will know if you have read my previous post, I have just spent a few days in Nice photographing the wedding of Jasmine and Cedric. Being the South of France, the sun shone all day and there was even the comfort of a light breeze to take the edge off the heat.
Jasmine and Cedric were married in a ceremony at Mandelieu Town Hall which is just a few kilometres from the Grooms parent's home.

They married at 2pm with around 50 guests present in a simple but intimate ceremony. Although the Bride and Groom live in London, Jasmine's family are Chinese and Cedric's Swiss so the wedding guest list was quite a cultural mix and the speeches throughout the day were in three different languages.

After the ceremony the couple and their guests spent an hour at the nearby Chateau de La Napoule where we took some great photographs of the wedding party.

Then it was off to the beautiful Eze Village for the evening reception held in Ch√Ęteau Eza Hotel's fantastic Michelin starred restaurant. The restaurant is set high up at the top of the village, has spectacular views over the Riviera and Mediterranean Sea and is a very romantic setting for a wedding reception.

Before the wedding breakfast commenced Jasmine changed into a stunning red evening dress with matching hair clips and earrings.

The happy couple have postponed their honeymoon until later in the year as they have a party in June for all their friends in London and then a second wedding ceremony in China in August.
