You’re only going to do it once, so do it right! By taking exclusive hire of Domaine des Dentelles, in one of the most awe-inspiring corners of Provence, couples have the idyllic backdrop for their picture-perfect wedding.
The bride arrives by helicopter over the 45 acres of vineyards and 150 acres of private forest whilst the bride’s maids run below through the olive groves and lavender fields. Guests cheer, sheltering the Provençal sun from their eyes, as they watch the wife-to-be descend, surrounded by panoramic views of unbelievable beauty.
The bridal party prepare for the big day in and out of the gym, indulging in spa treatments and finally gathering together in the luxurious and characterful bedrooms. Bubbly in hand, the company sit at the end of the four poster bed, surrounded by locally sourced antiques as the bride adds her final touches.
The groomsmen take advantage of the home cinema with bar and the wine cellar as they carefully choose the right bottles for the wedding feast, while the children cavort outside in the castle inspired play area and infinity pool.
Dinner is served in the vaulted dining room with grand candle sticks surrounded by ancient utensils and tapestries giving a real château-like feel to the place. The slow dances finally come to a halt; guests pass through the vast vaulted hall of this centuries old priory and up to one of the 8 bedrooms.
Seated on a stone bench in the forest, up the multi-tiered medieval garden, through the colourful vegetable garden, around the Lilly pad pond to the suspended flower garden…you have your pick of idyllic spots at Domaine des Dentelles to hold hands, kiss and take those all-important wedding photos.
The stonework of this domain has been beautifully restored and with the pristine pool, terracotta tiles and Cyprus trees, the exterior gives off a Romanesque feel. The evening pool party will wow your guests as they look up at the majestic domaine is lit-up under the stars.
