This is stripped back elegance at its best. A real focus on family, friends and fun with the added bonus of great fashion, beautiful florals and timeless styling by Emilie of La Chuchoteuse. The vineyards of Commanderie de Peyrassol in Provence are absolutely breathtaking as is Bride Gaëlle's lace gown and groom Itamar's dapper tuxedo. And EVERY moment captured by Raisa Zwart Photography will have you wishing you were right there celebrating with this glorious couple. Enjoy.

Location

Gaëlle the Bride: Getting married in the South of France was an experience for us. My parents own a holiday house where we love to go. We also wanted to get married in a sunny place where our friends and family would enjoy coming. The idea was to organise a weekend where we would all gather together in holiday spirit. We wanted people to be relaxed and fully enjoy the moment. We started the weekend on Friday with a dinner under the trees with all our friends in a very cute restaurant. It was the opportunity for our friends to meet each other. We continued with a big party at one of the villas where some of our friends were staying. The next day, we went on a boat trip in the Gorges du Verdon. The landscape was truly amazing as we navigated through the canyon.

Wedding

Our wedding took place on a sunny Sunday at the Commanderie de Peyrassol. We directly fell in love with this place that combines modern art and traditional vineyard. We had a truly festive wedding mostly thanks to the band we hired as well as our guests. We couldn’t imagined a better wedding! We have enjoyed every part of it. My recommendation for a successful wedding is to plan everything well in advance so when the day comes you can just enjoy it! Try to forget about the organisation on D-day and just enjoy being with the people you love the most! It is the only thing that matters: the love and support of friends and family :)
