What a great way to kick-off the week…featuring a deliciously French and intimate garden wedding set at the Chateau Massillan in Provence, France. Such a gorgeous day and a glamorous Jenny Packham gown called Fracncesca! And I love that traditional French food, amazing wine and this historic atmosphere reigned king for Baron + Baroness de Rosenwerth’s wedding day. A real treat, enjoy!
Baron + Baroness de Rosenwerth | June 18, 2011 | Chateau Massillan, Provence, France | Dress Listing: Jenny Packham, Francesca
The Ceremony Our ceremony was held in the gardens of the Chateau Massillan, with 45 of our close friends and family. The Chateau dates back to 1550 and owned by Diane de Poitier, the famous long life companion of Henry II. Initially built as Poitiers hunting Lodge, the 24 acres of surrounding land now operates as vineyards.
The Reception The reception was held in the courtyard of the Chateau with traditional French food. For starters we served Scallops, Fois Gras Main Fillet de Beouf, Sea Bass then a traditional cheese course. We drank French Ruinart Rose Champagne all day, French Chateauneuf de Pape red wine and Sancerre white wine. During dinner we had music by Michael Buble performed by tribute act, Kriz K. We had a French wedding cake called croquembouche made by a traditional French bakery. We spread our wedding event over three days so the day after we had a very glamorous barbecue of seafood, lamb, veal with all the trimmings of a five star service…with the local Chateau Rose wine.
Baroness de Rosenwerth’s Dress Search I worked in fashion and owned my own boutique that sold labels like Missoni, Temperley, Issa and Anya Hindmarch. So I knew without looking around that it would be Jenny Packham. Her designs and cut are perfect…and such important factors when spending lots of money on a dress. I tried on five dresses and without a doubt this was the one for me, as it gave me the elegance and glamour I wanted along with the back of the dress looking vintage.
