There are not more romantic weddings than Elopements. Being only the two of you, facing the sea at sunset, listening to the pastor, the waves and the seagulls. If you add to this perfect setting a destination wedding on the French Riviera, in a famous historic hotel (Hotel Belles Rives), and gastronomic dinner facing the sea, you start to understand the dream wedding this bride and groom had for their Elopement in the South of France. An Elegant, intimate and easy wedding far from home, with no rules, expect to enjoy every second of this beautiful afternoon.
Intimate elopement by the sea on the French Riviera
The bride really wanted to have her elopement ceremony at sunset, facing the sea. So we found out the perfect place for this ceremony and set the schedule. The wedding venue she selected is really one of the kind. They got ready at Hotel Belles Rives and in an apartment close to the sea, to meet at the Hotel Belles Rives Bar, for an emotional first look. After their first look, they wanted to have a more natural and genuine moment in another place than the hotel. A place that would incorporate south of France and typical French Riviera backdrop.
Couple wedding pictures by the beach
We drove to a close by the beach at Cap d’Antibes, with a little port and old fashion boat. The light was gorgeous, and temperature not too hot. They could really relax, laugh and enjoy this moment together far from their home country. With then head back to the hotel for a small break and a fresh drink. The view from the hotel terrace is stunning.
Sunset wedding ceremony and dinner by the sea
The bride wanted to have her ceremony at sunset, we waited till the perfect moment. few minutes before it, she walked to the end of the pontoon with her father. That was so emotional, the two of them, her father and the pastor, exchanging vows and rings. Few tears, a signed marriage document later, they were heading to the restaurant to have their dinner, facing the sea and the last light of their wedding day.
Thank you so much, Britni and Joey, you were amazing! It has been a bless documenting your romantic Elopement by the sea.
