The fabled French Riviera or Côte d’Azur in French is one of the most coveted wedding destinations in the world. The area is best known for its luxury waterfront hotels, private beach clubs, exclusive villas, azure blue waters, stunning cliff top views and extravagant bourgeois monuments.
The Riviera not only caters to those seeking hedonism and glamour, it also offers a laid-back Mediterranean lifestyle associated with charming hilltop villages, street markets and long, Rosé fuelled lunches followed by siestas in the afternoon sun.
Picasso, Chagall, Matisse, Fitzgerald and Godard all had a long-standing love affair with the French Riviera representing its beauty through art, literature and motion picture. With its international airport in Nice, the Côte d’Azur is easily accessible from all domestic and international locations, making it an extremely practical and strategic location for destination weddings and events.
Provence begins where the Côte d’Azur meets Côtes de Provence vineyard country and ends at the border with the Languedoc-Roussillon region of France. Provence for many, is quintessential France. Merely uttering the word Provence conjures up images of vineyards, fields of lavender and olive groves, charming stone houses with cornflower blue shutters, sleepy sun-baked villages, dramatic landscapes and flavoursome sun-drenched local produce.
Provence has always been a sort of Mecca for artists and photographers thanks to the unique, golden sunlight. This stunning light is notably illustrated by the work of Cezanne, Monet and van Gogh. Provence offers a range of beautifully authentic wedding venues such as rustic wineries, stunning chateaux, shabby chic country manors, romantic boutique hotels and historical sites. In short, Provence is the perfect country wedding destination for those in search of tranquillity, bags of character and the sights and smells of rural France.

“It’s hard to believe that a wedding two years (!!) in the making can outperform expectations but wow! Lavender & Rose helped us create the most magical weekend under the Provençal sun. Perfectly balancing events, exploring opportunities and relaxation time for the out-of-town guests was top of mind for us and Kerry and Jennifer helped us consider each detail thoughtfully and thoroughly. The way they pieced together all the elements created a full weekend of whimsy, love and fun. We wouldn’t have done it any other way!!”

“We could never thank Jennifer & Kerry enough for the effort, energy and care they put into our wedding and the events surrounding it. Their knowledge and expertise, paired with the relationships they have built with various wedding vendors made for an entirely smooth and stress-free experience for both of us. There wasn’t a single detail that hadn’t been thought through with meticulous attention to detail, and our whole day was more perfect and beautiful than we could ever have imagined. We whole-heartedly recommend Jennifer and Kerry to anyone looking for the BEST planners in France (or anywhere!)”.

It has been a pleasure getting to know you and we hope our relationship doesn’t end here.”
