It’s been a long time since I’ve offered you an article presenting a beautiful wedding, but it must be said that the year 2020 didn’t leave me much choice.
Despite everything I was lucky enough to meet Laura & Matthias who, against all odds, managed to organize a cool and chic wedding over two days in Monaco and Roquebrune-Cap-Martin, in french riviera.
And the bet was not won in advance: family living in Denmark, their first reception hall that let them down a few months before D-day, friends from all over the world…All these difficulties would have demotivated many, but Laura & Matthias were not the kind to give up so easily.
I kept in touch with Laura year-round to keep abreast of announcements and new health measures. If I had to summarize my last exchanges a few days/weeks before the wedding in Monaco: “do as you can, I will adapt! »
The wedding took place over two days with the civil wedding Friday at the Monaco town hall followed by a cocktail and a meal at the a’trego, on the port of Cap d’ail, near Monaco, a restaurant-bar with the look of a ship, anchored at the marina of Cap d’ail sublimely designed and decorated by Philippe Starck.
Saturday was therefore devoted to the secular ceremony at the chaplaincy of Roquebrune-Cap-Martin in Provence-Alpes-Côte d’Azur. A magnificent historic property created by photographer Henry Clarke and decorator Raymond Poteau in the 1950s and 1960s, followed by a meal at the restaurant Les Deux Frères, located on the heights of the historic heart of the village, in french riviera.
Documenting a wedding in Provence is always a pleasure for me, just for the light and softness that reigns there all year round.
That weekend was also for me the opportunity to do my first wedding at the Monaco town hall, and a ceremony during which I was able to discover the small differences of the Monegasque civil code.
Finally, I spent one of my best weddings in Provence which was the perfect illustration of the famous hashtag: love is not cancelled.
Now let’s go to the pictures!
