Bohemian-Chic Three-Day Wedding in the South of France

Steph and Phil wanted plenty of festival spirit for their summer wedding and judging by their photos, they achieved just that! Spread across three days, with a formal ceremony on the Friday followed by a big outdoor party on the weekend, with a nod to both the bride and groom’s Jewish and Catholic roots in their ceremony and plenty of bohemian flair.

As Steph works as a fashion designer, she called on her own expertise to not only dress herself and her bridesmaids in her own label, but also to pull together all the decor and props – with plenty of macrame, wicker and rugs, they worked with the natural environment and pulled in succulents, fairy lights strewn through trees and stars made from canes and flowers. They hung tea lights in glass jars, vintage picture frames as a photo booth, and provided guests with light up flower crowns to take the party way into the night.

Succulent-Filled South of France Themed Wedding… with a Rice Krispie Wedding Cake!

Although they’d gone to the same school and have family members who’ve known each other since they were tiny, Kirsten and Jack’s paths didn’t cross until a Christmas Eve pub visit in 2013.

They did long distance for a year and then Kirsten followed her heart and moved to France to be with Jack. It’s there, after three years, that they got engaged, so it made sense for the South of France to feature heavily in their Glaswegian wedding!

Kirsten, with a background in theatre and events design, took great delight in designing the look of the wedding and let her creativity go wild. Inspired by the tropical flowers and foliage of Nice, palm trees, birds of paradise and succulents featured heavily throughout.

They collected pebbles from the beach (and ferried them home in their suitcases for 18 months before the wedding!) to use along the aisle and as place settings. Their guests also enjoyed chocolate pebbles as favours, and each went home with a cactus, palm tree or leaf enamel pin as a memento from the day, which Kirsten loved seeing everyone wear in the evening.
