Rhiannon & Christian – A Civil Wedding in Monaco

Last October 2014, Rhiannon asked if I was free for their intimate wedding in Monaco. That was only a week before the actual day. It was the end of the season and I was worried I would’t be able to be in good form for her wedding day after a very long 2014 wedding season and just before I would fly to Japan for 40 days. Well, I’m glad I took my chance as this was one beautiful day and one incredibly generous couple. Rhiannon and Christian actually told me it would be a very intimate, relax and short wedding day. And despite the rush of the schedule, it was indeed surprisingly relaxing to capture their day. I arrived at their flat in Monte Carlo in the early afternoon, just to see them rush to the city hall of Monaco. A quickly achieved ceremony (incredibly quick in Monaco) followed by a visit to the outstanding Villa Ephrussi de Rothschild before ending the day with an improvised plastic pétanque competition in Saint Paul de Vence. All of this happened in only 4 hours! Believe it or not but it was probably one of the most relax and enjoyable wedding of last season.
