I adored being the wedding photographer at this beautiful wedding at Bastide de Puget in Provence in the South of France.
Oh my gosh, this wedding makes my heart sing. It’s so achingly beautiful and yet so simple. Stunning venue, relaxed atmosphere, great friends and family along with amazing food; oh, and not forgetting to mention the awesome dancing! You guys know how to party and organise a fantastic wedding too!
Rachel and Pierre-Marie choose the stunning chateau of Bastide de Puget and it’s easy to see why. Set amongst the serene Provence countryside, Bastide de Puget is a homely retreat, beautifully decorated inside with a lovely, relaxed pine trees studded enclosed garden to give it some much needed shade from the sunshine.
Rime Arodaky wedding dress
Rachel wore a stunning dress by French designer Rime Arodaky and invited Jean Sait from Celebrants In France to officiate their day. Jean added a homely warmth to the proceedings. The tables were beautifully decorated with lavender and lavender soap favours. And each table had it’s own themed alcohol and much needed bottle of mosquito repellent!
Rachel warned me that just before dinner there is a French tradition – what can only be described as “swinging the napkin” as a way of introducing the couple before they take their seats for dinner. I have no idea why this happens, but it was brilliant! I loved that everyone got involved, standing on chairs and cheering. It’s definitely something that should be introduced over here. But what Rachel didn’t warn me about was that their friends are all awesome party animals and love to dance.
Fun, friends, family, food = a perfect wedding. And to Rachel and PM – thank you so much for having me along to your day – it was truly special. I hope you love seeing a few of my favourites! Enjoy, love Sharron xx
