Don and Marion live in Shanghai and came to the bride’s home country for their late summer wedding. They wanted a carefree joie de vivre celebration, rather than a pompous wedding; it was important to them that all guest felt at ease and enjoyed the sunny weather and beautiful location.
And beautiful it was, their venue was a 19th century castle only 25 km from Cannes, once home to Christian Dior. They said their “I dos” in a small chapel on the grounds of the chateau, followed by a relaxed cocktail reception at the pool and later dinner. The day was captured by destination wedding photographer Chris Spira, who also happens to be a friend of the couple.
For dinner, Marion changed into her mother’s civil ceremony wedding dress. Both the flower crown as well her evening headpiece were designed by the bride herself.
