Elegant Cote D’Azure Wedding Photography

Cote D’Azur wedding photographer

We’re still in France, traveling through the south and shooting a Cote D’Azure wedding. Our next wedding takes us to Nice – a beautiful location for wedding photography. The event was organized by Imaginez – Cannes based production company specializing in creating luxury events. I’m really honored they invited me to do the photography for them. Our heroes of the day were Jeanette and Magnuss – a super cool couple from Norway – join them at their wedding and check out the photos below.

French Riviera

I believe I shot this wedding back in August. It might be too hot for a wedding in French Riviera for some, but it’s totally all right for Scandinavian or British people. We found ourselves in a private villa near Grasse, with a beautiful view of the walled town. Love how the old architecture is still preserved. It blends in with the palm trees and you know instantly, that you’re in the South of France. The best bit about being a wedding photographer in the French Riviera is being there. This is why I call my occupation a lifestyle, not a job. It just feels great being there.

The wedding day

The wedding day was organized by the bride’s family and wedding planner, so everything was done with love. The ceremony took place in a beautiful Anglican Church in Nice, followed by a cocktail party in the courtyard of the villa. The weather was great and the sun was shining bright. A lot of Scandinavian people were there as well, so we could hear them speaking Norvegian – how cool is that? I learned some Norwegian back in school, not that I speak much, but it still felt great being able to understand some of it.

Love what Imaginez Cannes did with the design and layout here. Smart use of the swimming pool – I had an unobstructed view of the dining area. I didn’t hear of any accidents as well.

It’s so touching to see little girls admiring their mom’s wedding dress. A beautiful moment with a beautiful backlight. I LOVE their white dresses. Like two little brides. Like mother, like daughters. This is definitely a very special day for them too. They also got some wedding gifts. Two very cute golden bracelets.

Holy Trinity church in Nice wedding ceremony

Wedding ceremony at the Holy Trinity church in Nice.  This is one of the oldest churches in Nice. It looks amazing with the palm trees in the background.

The wedding ceremony went on for about 45 minutes. The groom wore a white bow tie and black smoking. The bride wore a Pronovia dress with feather details and a long veil  – simple yet elegant.

It’s quite unusual to have a wedding in a church in French Riviera, usually, destination weddings are celebrated in private gardens or on the beach, this was a nice change though.

Wedding reception

The wedding reception took place by the pool under the palm trees. Guests were seated outside as well, at tables set up right next to each other so that they could spend time talking with each other, taking photos, and enjoying the amazing food!  The table setting was simple but elegant! Tables were decorated with red, pink roses, and green hortensias. The color of the flowers perfectly contrasted with the white table setting. The chairs look more comfortable than usual.

Few minutes of the golden light at the French Riviera wedding. A beautiful moment to be a wedding photographer on French Riviera. We got just 5 minutes for the photoshoot as the schedule was so tight, but I’m really happy with how it worked out. We climbed on the rooftop of the house, you know it is very easy because for some houses roofs start from the road next to the house.

Thank you guys for having me at your wedding. It was an amazing day and I’m pleased to have been your wedding photographer.
