Our impressive portfolio

"Beyond your wildest dreams"
When it comes to the choice of a venue for your blessing and Reception on the Côte d’Azur you are really spoilt for choice. This very exotic and luxurious part of France offers a truly magical choice, beyond your wildest dreams. Côte Weddings has a very impressive portfolio from which to chose for your special celebration day: exclusive Hotels, splendid Châteaux, historic Abbeys, private Beaches, luxury Villas and elegant Yachts. Just take a look! The time of the Ceremony, and number of guests, can influence your style of Reception: a Formal Lunch or Dinner Reception, proceeded by Champagne & Canapés, a less formal Buffet Reception (ideal when children are involved) … or perhaps a stylish Beach Barbecue or Hog Roast. Entertaining to suit your dreams!

"Riviera palaces"

Some of the most sumptuous venues are to be found on the Côte d’Azur, truly fit for the wedding of a princess! Many of the most exotic and refined hotels can be found on this stretch of the French Riviera, often referred to as “Riviera palaces”. Monaco, Nice, Cap d’Antibes, Juan les Pins and Cannes are simply bursting with some of the finest hotels to be found in the world, many of them belonging to some of the leading prestige hotel groups in the world, such as Relais et Châteaux …. whilst others retain fiercely independent.

"Hidden jewels"

Two idyllic examples are Hôtel du Cap on Cap d’Antibes, and Hôtel Belles Rives in Juan les Pins, which has magnificent tiered terraces tumbling down to the sea. But not all of the great hotels in the South of France are to be found on the Mediterranean coast. You will also find some “hidden jewels” inland. In the hill villages of St Paul de Venue and Eze village, you will find truly exquisite first class hotels with breathtaking views over the valleys and surrounding countryside.

Châteaux country

France is very much châteaux country, and they are not all in the Loire valley. Château St Georges in Grasse and Château de la Napoule, just outside Mandelieu are two favourite venues with clients. They are both rich in history and make the most beautiful and romantic backdrop for a stylish wedding and blessing ceremony. Château de la Napoule is truly magical, with its elegant long entranceway lit with flares – it is like being transported back several centuries. The approach to the château makes the most romantic entry for any bride, and a glorious courtyard offers the most idyllic setting for a spectacular wedding dinner, with tables hidden under trees strung with fairy lights  …. and superb food and music.

Converted Abbeys

Being a Roman Catholic country it is not difficult to find a selection of ‘converted’ abbeys about 15km in from the Mediterranean, some even with their own chapels (out of the duristiction of the RC church). This is a perfect and magical solution for a couple who are non-French residents.

Private Beaches

A private beach makes the most perfect setting for “a wedding with a difference”. The Ceremony and the Reception can take place on the beach, and sometimes the bride and bridesmaids can arrive by small tender from across the sea.

Private Villas

For a smaller more intimate style wedding, the hire of a private villa can be the perfect solution. With two neighbouring villas, accommodation can be provided for 40+ guests, and you have a swimming pool and outdoor sports facilities, once the main celebrations are over.

Yacht Weddings

A yacht has to be the ultimate, indulgent dream venue for a Wedding/Celebration Reception, and the Wedding Blessing can also take place on board – at anchor, or out in the deep blue Mediterranean. You might need to keep your guest numbers down, as there are only very few yachts that can take 100 people to sea.
