Emily and Ronald’s Hotel Villa Belrose wedding was beyond compare. We’re always up for an epic adventure with a madly in love couple – there aren’t enough words to describe how perfect Emily and Ronald’s celebration in St. Tropez was. Not only did they plan an epic celebration, there were so many beautiful activities for their guests leading up to the wedding.
We arrived in St. Tropez France for their Hotel Villa Belrose wedding, and our jaws hit the ground. If James Bond were to ever get married, he’d probably do it on a yacht in this neck of the woods. There was instantly something so french, so romantic, so decadent and elegant about everything we encountered here. The cafe’s served up the most delicious coffee, and there was champagne flowing quite freely. When the wedding day arrived, we met Emily and Ronald at the Hotel Villa Belrose, and got them ready for their reveal at a nearby vineyard. From there, we navigated the narrow streets (by car – I have no idea how we managed that), and took portraits in as many places as time would allow it. Side note, did you know that Mick and Bianca Jagger got married at City Hall in St. Tropez?
Back to their beautiful day. The hotel overlooks the sea on a perfectly manicured hill. After the ceremony and champagne toast, the guests were treated to a fantastic seven course meals, expertly prepared by the hotel’s chef. A magnum of champagne opened up the dance party, a six foot long cheese board was served up and the crowd danced the night away.
There is really nothing I can say to add to the photos or the experience, but words of gratitude for couples like Emily & Ronald that put their trust in us. Thank you both for the journey.
