Bespoke Destination Wedding Planner

"Let us sweep you away on your special day."

The Côte d’Azur is the perfect location for saying “I do”! Mediterranean blue skies and the chic glamour of the French Riviera, create a special touch of wedding magic. Whether your dream venue is a Château in one of the hill villages, an idyllic private beach, a converted Abbey, or even on board a luxury yacht, Côte Weddings will create the most exquisitely planned celebrations, for the most important day of your life. Organising a Wedding can be stressful, whether ‘at home’ or abroad, and it can easily turn into a wedding nightmare if it is ‘a foreign affair’. A Wedding Planner is essential and Anne and her team at Côte Weddings will make ALL your wildest expectations come true on the day, ensuring that everything is planned to perfection. 

Based in Antibes on the Côte d’Azur, we are experts in destination weddings.

A selection of our recommended wedding partners

Côte Weddings - Hotel Belles Rives

Recommended Venue

Hôtel Belles Rives, Juan Les Pins

We recommend only the finest venues to wedding clients, and Hôtel Belles Rives is one of them.

Read More

This splendid Art Deco hotel hugs the coastline, with three terraces tumbling down to the Mediterranean. An outdoor Ceremony  on the upper terrace will wow your guests, with a mass of olive trees and flowers, followed by drinks & canapés a few steps beneath, and then a magnificent dinner on the lower beach terrace just as the sun starts to set.

Dandelions & Grace

Recommended Florist

Dandelions & Grace

Dandelions and Grace are one of the most innovative florists on the Côte d’Azur that we have worked with.

Read More

A very clear brief is given to them, highlighting the bride’s flower choices and colour preferences for the complete celebrations, from the decorations for the church ceremony or benediction through to bridal bouquets, buttonholes, table decorations, and floral decorations at the actual venue. Claire Lyons is a brilliant florist and she manages to create exactly what the bride wants on every occasion.

Celebrants

Recommended Celebrants

Peter Madan

Peter Madan provides a selection of officiants from many different denominations.

Read More

Unlike many other Roman Catholic countries, in order to be eligible to have a Church Wedding/Civil Ceremony in France, either the bride-to-be or bridegroom has to be a French national, or to have an official French address.

This is why many non-French clients opt for a Ceremony at their wedding venue, following a civil ceremony in their own country. Peter Madan provides a selection of officiants from different denominations (Anglican, Jewish, Muslim or non-denominational), and the Ceremony can be arranged in most languages. You exchange vows and rings, and receive a signed Wedding Certificate – it is just like a second wedding.

Hair and Makeup

Recommended Hairstyling & Beauty

Our Selection

Côte Weddings uses a variety of top class make-up and hair stylists for their brides.

Read More

All of the stylists that we work with will visit brides, bridesmaids and other guests in the hotel or villa where they are staying, unless they prefer to be in a salon environment. The Cutting Shop in Antibes will arrange for hair styling, makeup and manicures, as well as other beauty treatments such as body waxing and massage. And then there is the choice of adding an “added glow” with an all over spray tanning. Many of the independent stylists that we work with are chosen to suit the requirements of a particular wedding client. This is the one day that they want someone that they can really trust. Trials are always arrange in advance.

Côte Weddings - Photographer

Recommended Wedding Photographer

Adamo Morgese

Really professional wedding photography is an essential part of your celebrations

Read More

It is the person with the camera who captures all the memories of your day that will last forever. Adamo Morgese is one of the most talented wedding photographers in Europe, with a very unique “fly on the wall” style of photography. He manages to capture everything without you even realising that you are on camera. The results are breathtaking. Although Adamo is Italian, he works for wedding clients across Europe ….. and even further away.

Lizzy and the Gentlemen

Recommended Live Music

Lizzie & The Gentlemen

Music is an important feature of any wedding, from the ceremony to the reception.

Read More

If you were to ask most bridegrooms they would say that the music is the most important feature off their wedding reception …. as well as a well-stocked bar!
Lizzie & The Gentlemen are one of the groups that we frequently recommend to our clients. They combine instrumental with vocals, which means that the music can be split through the different stages of the celebrations. For example it is possible to have a solo violinist or saxophonist for part of the Ceremony, to then have a trio for the drinks & canapés, and to then have the full group with Lizzie singing for after the Dinner. They can also arrange for a DJ. We can also recommend a wide variety of other live musicians from cover bands for U2 to the best impersonator of the late Barry White. (He is almost better than the real man!).
