A Lavender Affair

The scent of lavender fills your nose as you drive around the twisting bends of the country road, that lead you to your private spot, a haven so blissful, so peaceful, that just the rustle of the wind sweeping through the lavender bushes and soft humming of the bees keep your mind alert.

What awaits is the perfect Provence escape. A much sought after visit to the plateau with the never-ending rolling hills of beautiful purple buds, he epitome of Provence and so much loved by couples visiting, be it for an engagement shoot, post wedding shoots or an actual elopement private wedding blessing.

The best time to see the fields is during the summer, from mid-June to mid-July. It is true that lavender lasts through August, although the harvesters generally begin cutting the fields before then; this is so they can extract the lavender oil when it is most potent.

Much as the rows of lavender bushes are enticing to pick a few stems, it is asked that the property of the hardworking local farmers be respected and left untouched. It is after all a livelihood for them.

As the bust fields are filled up with tourists and respective couples trying to find their private photo opportunity, we have a few secret favourite spots that we keep to ourselves, and offer our couples a most romantic photo opportunity.

Be it arriving by car or helicopter from the likes of Nice, Monaco or Cannes, the organisation of your perfect day is in safe hands with MY RIVIERA WEDDINGS.
