Antibes as a perfect destination for a wedding
Antibes is a small and picturesque town on the Mediterranean coast of France. It’s just a short drive to Cannes and Nice and is also known as one of the original homes of the Cannes Film Festival. Originally home to the Greek god, Antibes is now a popular destination for weddings on the French Riviera. With its quaint streets and seaside cafes, Antibes has all the charm of an intimate wedding location.
Couples can take advantage of these unspoiled surroundings by holding their ceremony at any number of locations. From Church of Our Lady of the Assumption to Chapelle St-Jean or even in Antibes’ famous cathedral. Once the ceremony has taken place, couples have many options for hosting their reception dinner – from luxurious hotels overlooking the sea to chic restaurants along La Croisette. There are also plenty of opportunities for scenic photos thanks to breathtaking views of La Garoupe bay. If you want to get married to classic French architecture and stunning coastal views, this is your best bet!

Mediterranean accent rehearsal dinner
The wedding of Nadia and Gur was a wonderful three-day affair on the Cote D’Azur. Friday evening began with the rehearsal dinner at the bride’s mother’s house. The tables were decorated with blue and white china, blue linen tablecloths, and matching hydrangeas, a southern favorite or Mediterranean accent. For a unique tablescape, mix and match with other inked indigo patterns. All of this is accompanied by excellent acoustic cello music.
Southern french style wedding
Saturday, the couple got married at the bride’s grandmother’s house. The wedding was held in a charming small chapel that was located on the grounds of the estate where the whole wedding took place. An elegant white gown with a long hand-embroidered veil was worn by the bride, she carried a bouquet of white roses and other seasonal flowers from the Mediterranean. The groom wore a black tie.
All decorations and planning were done by Imaginez Cannes and Bruno’s team, thank you guys, you did a stellar job, as always!
A reception on a manicured lawn overlooking the Cote D’Azur valleys followed the ceremony. Guests were served champagne, caviar with toast points, and pate de foie gras sandwiches on French bread that had been baked earlier in the day. The reception was held in a translucent tent set up in the garden, so we didn’t leave the estate the entire day. The tent was decorated with lavenders, as well as light glass candle holders and chandeliers.
Before dinner, we all went out to walk around on this beautiful estate where there was a swimming pool full of floating white roses. Imagine this absolutely amazing southern evening with cicadas and cricket night sounds in the background. But let’s get back to the wedding reception. Tables were set up with candles, white roses, and other seasonal flowers in small vases. There was a dance floor at one end of the tent where a live jazz band played some popular French and the rest of world music that everybody danced to. The party was just crazy.
As wedding entertainment, there were two acrobats rope dancers that were enjoyed by all. What a wonderful evening! There were white roses on the wedding cake, and it looked absolutely stunning.
The following morning – beach day!
And, of course, being Norwegians, they all danced to Macarena, they always do 🙂
Plage Joseph- a nearby beach- was the destination for our third wedding day
My first impression was that it looked like a romance novel scene. Beach was surrounded by rocky outcrops and the water was crystal clear. Additionally, there were several small private beaches that could be rented out by the day or week. The third day had a white summer beach outfit dress code. Everybody wore white and the beach Joseph all decked out in white looked stunning against the crystal blue Mediterranean sea.
This is one of my favorite photos, I love how everything looks so dreamy and romantic.
I would highly recommend visiting Antibes if you are ever in this area of France during summertime, it is absolutely stunning and I am sure you will have an amazing time! If you want to find out more about this beach or plage Joseph follow this link.
