French Paperwork and Wedding Planning in Provence

Last year was so full of twists and turns that it sometimes felt like we have been meeting ourselves coming backwards, just trying to keep on top of it all.

If you’ve been following us for a while now, you will probably remember that the year started with an engagement when our eldest son proposed to his girlfriend. We were delighted for them and very excited that she would join our little family.

As a mother of two boys, I never imagined that I would find myself helping to plan every detail of a wedding. Still, as the ceremony is being held at our local Mairie, with a reception nearby, we have spent the last few months on a steep learning curve, which has been exhausting but fun too.

Continue reading here for the Vaucluse Dreamer’s photos and details about planning their son’s wedding in Provence. Probably not surprising to many, a mountain of paperwork was required for the wedding. However, there were also some fun shopping excursions.

Are you considering a destination wedding in the South of France?

We probably don’t need to convince you that Provence is magical. The region delivers sunny, blue skies, fabulous landscapes, delicious food and world-class wine. However, flawless weddings in Provence require experts who speak the language and can create magic. Dream weddings do not happen alone, no matter how beautiful the bride and charming the groom is. With many moving parts (venue, food, guest lists, flowers, etc.), every wedding requires teamwork and planning. A destination wedding adds more complexity and a real need to understand the region.

Here is our resource guide to perfect weddings in Provence. We have included photographers, florists, make-up artists, venues and talented wedding planners who manage the details. The companies and individuals listed below are familiar with the region and have not just “flown in for the weekend.” (Listings in alphabetical order.)

Julie and her husband Andy started visiting the Vaucluse area 25 years ago & over the years have increased the amount of time they spend there with their growing family. She has a deep affection for the area, finding it is a great place to visit, where the whole family can relax and enjoy time together.

She longs for the day when she can ‘up-sticks’ from her home on Dartmoor & relocate to the Luberon and spend her days cycling, walking, visiting markets & brocante fairs and of course enjoying the local food and drink.

Her blog VaucluseDreamer gives her a space to highlight some of her favourite things about the area from places to visit to particular activities that she and her family all enjoy.

She hopes one day it will be a place where she can share the process of renovating a house in France, but at the moment that will have to wait.
