A Relaxed South of France Wedding With Rustic Touches

Sarah and Tim’s relaxed South of France wedding was everything they hoped it to be and more. The couple decided to get married in France as Sarah’s parents have a holiday home out there. The couple who dated for around two and half years got engaged whilst on holiday in France. ‘We were hiking up some rocks to get a view over the surrounding areas, the sun was starting to set,’ explains Sarah. ‘There was no one else around and we felt literally on top of the world before Tim went down on one knee. It later transpired that we could see our reception venue from the spot where Tim proposed!’

Sarah describes her South of France wedding as a mix between ‘traditional and informal’ ‘I wore a very traditional big white wedding dress and Tim and his ushers were in kilts and tweed,’ says Sarah. ‘As we were getting married in a Catholic church, we asked all the women to wear hats/headpieces and the boys to wear morning suits in the 26 degree heat. Luckily there was a a lovely breeze on the day!’

Sarah’s mother spent many hours spray painting bottles, wrapping string around jars, drying thistles and sewing hessian cones to hang on the church pews, so their wedding was most definitely a family affair. ‘It was a real team effort in the run up to the wedding’ explains Sarah. ‘On the day itself, all the ushers helped set up the reception venue.’

I am sure you will agree with me that Sarah and Tim’s South of France wedding is definitely inspiring. Their day was captured by Jay Rowden.
