Villa Ephrussi de Rothschild Wedding South Of France Destination Wedding

Villa Ephrussi de Rothschild wedding, set between Nice and Monaco. This Saint Jean Cap Ferrat Wedding was drenched in golden light. We travel to many destination weddings each year, and it is always an experience. There isn’t a venue with more aristocratic history than this Saint Jean Cap Ferrat villa. We were so lucky that Stephanie & Johnathan flew us over to capture their Wedding Weekend.

We arrived in Nice two days before the wedding, in the build up to what was to be the hottest day in Europe on record. The night before the wedding Stephanie and Johnathan hosted a pre wedding party at the beach bar Anao Place. The bar was full of family and guests enjoying champagne and watching the sun go down on the beech.

Due to the hot weather, the planned outdoor ceremony planned in the gardens of Villa Ephrussi De Rothschild had to be moved inside. This is the only time I think I’ve been relieved a ceremony was moved indoors! It was so hot! The day was planned and hosted by Sandrine at Lucky You Events

This didn’t hinder the celebrations in any way. The ceremony was intimate and beautiful. After the vows the guests moved outside to the stunning gardens serenaded by the strolling band The Strikes. The Wedding Breakfast was served while the antique dancing fountains where lit as a stunning backdrop.

Did I mention it was hot? Well at midnight it was 30 degree Celsius! AT MIDNIGHT! Did it stop the dancing? Not in any way, after a lively trio of sets from The Strikes the party moved indoors to a cooler fan filled dance floor with DJ Ben Spencer spinning until the early hours.
