L&N, particularly attached to Provence, wanted to get married in an enchanted setting.
We naturally thought of Château de Sannes, where everything is conducive to dreams. This estate offers a timeless interlude, with its exceptional gardens amidst the vines, and the romanticism of its beautiful days of light and harmony.
It was for this exceptional location that our New York couple fell in love.
Friday evening was the time for the bride and groom and their guests from all over the world to get together. For a relaxed evening, we booked the Insolite restaurant in Lourmarin. This authentic Provencal venue kicked off the weekend's festivities.
An emotional lay ceremony was conducted by the bride's brother. The couple said "I do" for life, in the shade of magnolia trees on a sublime aisle.
Now it was time for cocktails by the pool. Guests enjoyed Roland Paix 's cocktails under the sunset. A most enjoyable moment. The Sounds of Riviera live band also enlivened the occasion. The band featured double bass, percussion, guitar and vocals.
Caterer Roland Paix prepared Spritz, a ceviche workshop and a Serrano ham carving before the guests' very eyes.
We then directed guests to the dining area, facing the bastide. A path through the formal gardens led the way. A lantern-lit floral table plan guided them to their seats.
The table was decorated in a natural, bohemian style. Woven straw placemats, a few flowers and ears of wheat adorned the decor. All this under beautiful guirlandes guinguettes installed by the Belounge teams.
Then L&N made their remarkable entrance in a vintage sports car.
The live band punctuated the dinner with their dynamic sets. Everyone danced between courses. Guests particularly enjoyed the rack of lamb cooked and served by Roland Paix.
To round off the dinner. We had Monsieur Chou 's cake arrive in front of the sheepfold, near the dance floor.
Finally, it was time to party. DJ 33 Tours entertained the newlyweds and their guests until the end of the night.
The next day, caterer Roland Paix served a poolside brunch. On the menu: grilled meats and sunbathing.
