Following on from part one of Our Wedding in Provence from last week today i'll be posting more memory's from our wedding in Provence.
When I was sorting through images from the wedding to share, I really found it difficult to whittle down the amount of images to share. I have so many favourites (i'm really not kidding)! I guess that its the same for most brides... so i'm sure you'll forgive the wedding spam!

Getting ready for a special occasion is such a fun thing to do, especially with your girlfriends. I really wanted it to be as luxurious and indulgent morning as possible. We ordered champagne and began out dressing rituals, excited for what the day would bring. I played the Marie Antoinette soundtrack (my favourite movie) to get me into the french vibe.
I had my favourite diptyque candles burning, and made sure I layered my bridal fragrance to make sure it lasted the whole day. Firstly I took a bath scented with Coco mademoiselle bubble bath. Then I applied the body lotion all over, before adding body oil to any areas I wanted to highlight... Collar bones, shoulders and arms. Finally I finished off with deodorant and perfume in the same fragrance. Taking time over the little details really helps to make the day feel special.
We choose our flower girl dresses from Monsoon as they had such a lovely collection and are so reasonably priced. Similar Here, Here and Here
There will always be unplanned surprises in some shape or form on a wedding day, for us it was the weather... something we really didn't think would be an issue getting married in the South of France. We had planned our ceremony to take place outside in the grounds of the Chateau but it had rained the night before, and we decided that it wasn't the best idea to drag my dress through the damp grass the next day, meaning we had to hold the ceremony indoors. Luckily the florist was able to come up with an alternative plan and dress the fireplace and golden mirror in the drawing room instead of the original plan.
Luckily I loved the way it turned out!
We tried to have a very personal ceremony layered with meaning to us. We also choose to face towards our guests rather than having our back's towards them. We asked as many of our guests as possible to read a small part from a poem my sister had found by Joanna Miller and it was such a lovely moment.
I really wanted to have old fashioned champagne coups for our wedding (supposedly inspired in design by Marie Antoinette's breast) and had the florist dress them with baby's breath for extra prettiness.
We chose our Bridesmaids dressed for Two Birds and i'm still delighted with how beautiful they looked on the day, the shade of pink went perfectly with our colour theme. We added some vintage broaches from my personal collection for a little bit of extra glamour!
I hope you are enjoying taking a look through our wedding memories?
