A Sun-Washed Destination Wedding & 17th Century French Farmhouse

This French destination wedding struck a balance between fancy and fun. From the mother of the bride’s fabulous pink hat to the poolside flamingo float, it is a lesson in marrying formal and casual styles. It reminds me just a bit of the royal wedding last year, which also blended two countries and two styles, so our wedding planning tip is actually from the duke and duchess’s own example.

Wedding Planning Tip: Meghan Markle and Prince Harry asked for donations to charity instead of gifts for their wedding last year.  Consider doing the same! You can even use So Kind to add a donation request to your registry here.

From the bride of this wedding: “We share a love of food and travel, and after four years, it was on a trip to the Fitz Roy mountain range of Patagonia, after hiking for several days that Tom proposed.

“As soon as we started to plan our wedding, we realised that we both wanted to get married in France. We had spent many happy holidays there. As soon as we visited Le Mas de Peint, we decided it was the venue for us: we loved the laid back vibe, peaceful surroundings and Camargue character of the beautiful 17th Century Farmhouse. My mother and I were so relieved when we found my … gown, as I had tried upwards of 70 dresses in 7 different shops before I tried it on: she instantly said ‘that’s the one’ and purchased it for me…

“On the day itself … there were showers and dark skies in the morning, but the sun came out just before the ceremony.”
