Destination wedding photography French Riviera / South of France wedding photographer

When Sabine from the luxury wedding planning agency Avalon Event Organization ( first approached me with an enquiry about this destination wedding photography in South of France I didn’t expect I was in for such a treat. What was originally supposed to be one evening event photography in Monaco turned into a three day high end wedding photography between Switzerland and the French Riviera.
Both P and T have been married before so for them this second wedding was not so much about the perfect dress and the perfect ceremony as it was about the perfect party with their closest friends and family. Nevertheless with the creativity of P and the help from the Monaco wedding planner Sabine everything was more than perfect.
The three day wedding celebration started in Zurich where P&T held an intimate civil ceremony surrounded by their immediate family members. I was honoured to be flown as a destination wedding photographer in Zurich to photograph this beautiful moment of their lives. After a lovely and delicious lunch the whole family flew and made their way to the villa. When I first set my eyes on the villa I remained speechless. It was not the first time I’ve been in a private villa in South of France but this one had the extra ‘wow’ factor and I loved the modern minimalistic feel it had not to mention the gorgeous view of Cot d’Azur.
For the wedding reception the next day the villa looked even more stunning with the beautiful flower decorations and table arrangements which perfectly matched the style of the villa. It is always a pleasure to work on destination wedding photography in the French Riviera with the vivid colours of the amazing blue waters of Cot d’Azur but this destination wedding photography in South of France was just another level. Everywhere I looked there was a beautiful shot to be captured.
P&T didn’t want many wedding photos of themselves so we spent just a few moments of taking some photos by the pool but I personally love these shots. But with a beautiful bride like P it’s hard to take a bad photo. And she has the most beautiful and natural smile ever.
P&T made their way out of the house before their guests arrived as they had a grand entrance by arriving in a helicopter which landed at the bottom of their garden. And what an entrance it was! It was followed by a romantic serenade of the lovely French band. From then on the party started with full throttle with lots of dancing and even the elderly guests were on the dance floor. By 1am the guests had to replenish their energy with a bowl of warm soup in order to continue the party for a few more hours.
After more than 12 hour working day at this South of France wedding photography job I was certainly tired but I can say this was the most enjoyable destination wedding photography in South of France that I have photographed.
