Many congratulations to Nicola and Joe who have recently tied the knot in beautiful Grasse on the French Riviera. It is a town situated in Provence, the world’s capital of perfume. It was a privilege to participate in such a beautiful and emotional ceremony, in a most picturesque setting. We had a whale of a time in France and would love to go back there again.

“Many of my family members are photographers, including my brother. But they want to enjoy the wedding reception instead of working too hard.“

That’s what Nicola said to us in her first email. Yes, we absolutely love photographing unplugged weddings! And working with people who share the same view is a pure pleasure. Truly being present in the moment instead of looking at your mobile screen and trying to take a picture is simply priceless.

Nicola and Joe’s Côte d’Azur wedding took place in a family-owned mansion La Rivolte in some breathtaking scenery, typical of Provence. The couple had prepared everything for the ceremony themselves. Even their kids were involved. The groom was waiting for the bride with their older sons and while she walked down the aisle with their youngest boy. Their friends and family were involved, too, which made it even more special. Afterwards, everybody was driven to Chateau de La Napoule to enjoy the reception and listen to the speeches. And then all the guests hit the dance floor where they really cut a rug. What an amazing party it was!
