Cote Weddings

Why the Côte d'Azur is a perfect wedding location

Many couples have come to Côte Weddings over the years wanting something different from a typical wedding in the UK. All their friends have had the marquee in the stately home, the 'meringue dress', the wedding singers and the speeches ..... and sometimes a few unwanted guests! They may have already had them for their first marriage. They are usually certain that they want something different and a day that can be what they want and on their own terms. A wedding abroad can provide them with this.
Here are the main reasons why the Côte d'Azur is one of the most popular European wedding destinations in France:

  • Together with Italy and Spain, France is one of the few Mediterranean countries that can offer a high level of service and infrastructure for a quality wedding. It is one of the true first world countries that borders the Mediterranean.

  • Nice, the main entry airport to the French Riviera, is less than 2 hours away from most UK airports. If the wedding is to be in Monaco, there is a direct helicopter link between Nice airport and the principality.

  • The growth in the number of budget/low cost airlines has made it a readily accessible wedding venue, and at a reasonable price, both for the bride and groom and for their families and guests. For wedding locations that are further along the coast, west of Cannes, there is also the option to fly from the UK to Marseille or Toulon.
  • A wedding on the Côte d'Azur also means that you have an excuse for not inviting guests that you would have been obliged to in the UK. It can offer you a more personal and selective approach when making your guest list. However, if the word gets out that the celebrations are taking place on the Côte d'Azur, everybody will want to come!
You will invariably spend proportionately less than on a wedding in the UK, for a multitude of different reasons (unless of course you decide to pay for everyone's flights and accommodation!). And you will definitely enjoy better food and weather!
