The wedding is held at La Bastide du Roy in Antibes.  Originally the residence was given to King Henry IV in 1608 as a wedding present and was named Bastide (small country house) du Roy (king).  The Bastide was sold to the City of Antibes by King Louis XV in 1779 and in 1924, the famous fashion designer Jeanne Lanvin buys the estate as a wedding present for his daughter, her muse Marguerite, known as Marie-Blanche Lanvin and her son-in-law Count de Polignac, member of the Princely Family of Monaco.

In 1971 following his marriage with Bianca, Mick Jagger from the Rolling Stones spent a summer here at La Bastide du Roy

This is an aerial photo of the front of the property. The reception takes place in garden behind the chateau surrounded by an olive orchard.

 

We were led to a well manicure garden with centuries old olive trees.

 

 

The garden is really tranquil and beautiful.

 

It was a very hot day and fresh lemonade and cold water are available for the guests.

Tables are set up for people to pick up a fan for the ladies and a yarmulke (Jewish hat) for the men.

In order to get to the ceremony you have to go through a little opening surrounded by pine trees.  Really picturesque and then it opens up to a large area for a wedding ceremony.
