This was a truly international wedding with the couple and majority of guests from Lebanon and others from all around the world with the wedding spread over 3 days.
Day 01 was a relaxed evening affair at La Plage du Festival restaurant right on the beach at Cannes with the bride Roula wearing the first of four dresses selected for her wedding.
Relaxed initially anyway, the dancing got a bit crazy after the meal!
On the Saturday (Day 02), we were working at a total of 4 different venues in the village of La Colle Sur Loup starting with the restaurant/hotel Alain Llorca (where we were fed endless amounts of very tasty truffle topped pizza) where Roula was getting ready.
This was followed by a civil ceremony at the local mairie for immediate family and close friends after which Roula left in order to change into her second dress of the day and Jaber led the guests on a walk through the beautiful village to the church of St. Jacques.
Following the ceremony, a drinks reception took place in the gardens of the ancient L’Abbaye hotel with the evening meal and speeches taking places in a delightful inner courtyard.
Entertainment was provided throughout the day by an accordian and a violin player and with singing later by a friend of the bride.
And just where/when most weddings would have finished, Roula & Jaber cranked it up a notch with a late afternoon and evening second reception on Day 03 at the simply stunning Villa Ephrussi de Rothschild on Cap Ferrat close to Nice.
Featuring dress number 4, we had a photo-shoot in the gardens in beautiful early evening sunlight followed by a drinks reception complete with Spanish guitars and a meal outdoors in the French gardens.
Cutting of the cake up on the villa’s balcony followed with dancing in the main hall to finish off what was quite simply a spectacular wedding and one we will never forget (especially due to Roula and Jaber’s hospitality and thoughtfulness in regards to our needs throughout the entire time we were there).
