Romantic wedding on the French Riviera

Junophoto is specialised in destination wedding and after a anniversary session in Las Vegas  we went to France last october to photograph a romantic wedding on the French Riviera! Charlotte and Romain met and live in Montreal but they both come from the South of France. Celebrating their love surrounded by family on the French Riviera was an obvious choice. After a lot of researches, they finaly chose the beautiful Hotel Residence du Cap Brun to celebrate with their guests.

It’s with a perfectly blue sky and a 24 degrees temperature,  that we went to the Cap Brun Hotel. The venue held all the festivities of the day,  so convenient for everyone! As soon as we arrived we fell in love with this enchanting place near Toulon, overlooking the Mediterranean Sea.  First, the bride and groom got ready in their respective rooms upstairs before a memorable first look on the terrace. Romain’s reaction was so moving, it was hard not to shed a tear!

After leaving them a few minutes to enjoy this moment, we walked around the property for some authentic portraits of the couple. Charlotte and Romain are pretty discreet people and wished to exchange their vows in all intimacy. They simply exchanged their vows booklets and read them at the same time. We were lucky to have one hour with them but we could have gone for hours with such an inspiring place and  couple!

Then, as the guests began to arrive,  we went upstairs so the bride could hide. So why not take the opportunity to do another first look, this time, between the bride and her father! Once again, it was so emotionnal! As a photographer, it is always a special thing to capture theses unique instants between a father and his grown-up daughter. Definitely one of our favorite moment of a wedding day!

With an ideal weather, the ceremony  could take place outdoors, just as planned. Were there gathered several generations, all present to celebrate the union of Charlotte and Romain. In addition, many of their loved ones said a few words, creating a truly unique ceremony. Their officiant Audrey of Sweet Com & Events orchestrated a beautiful ceremony (she was also their wedding planner!). A ceremony that ended with the last rays of sunshine and the acclamations of the guests who covered the newlyweds with flower petals! ( SO PERFECT!)

Next, the beautiful weather allowed a cocktail on the terrace, following by  a delicious meal and a wild party on the dance floor!

To conclude, we wish all the best to Romain and Charlotte! We feel so thankfull for  o their trust and for bringing us with them to France for their wonderful wedding! We already want to go back!
