It was my second Polish wedding this season, which has made me very happy. I think if I’d organised a contest for the most beautiful bride, Aldona would be in the top 3:-) But the price would not only be given for her beauty but also for her intelligence. Aldona was a lawyer in one of the best international law firms before she met a young and handsome entrepreneur – Emmanuel. She has decided to put her career aside for some time to help Manu with his family’s business. They run a great traiteur and restaurant called Via Latina, located in the centre of Nice. I highly recommend it to anyone who’s passing by. You’ll find there all the authentic taste of Italy, fresh and delicious products, especially gniocci and ravioli. You can also see some of their products on the pictures I took during their wedding’s apero.
The wedding was organised by Eternal Event wedding planner. The preparations took place in a beautiful house of Emmanuel’s parents in St Roman de Bellet. It gives a view over the mountains and grape fields. With a great help of Basia – a polish makeupist also living in the south of France, and Emmanuel’s mom who’s been a hairdresser before, Aldona’s transformed into a real Princess Bride.
After the church ceremony, the guests came back to Emmanuel’s parents house for a quite somptuous buffet. Our Polish priest – Bronisław Rosiek, was also welcomed to join the dinner. The couple has shared “bread and salt” in accordance with our tradition. After the first toast, the couple breaks the glasses by throwing them behind them. The second toast is often a champagne shot glass toast, which is raised in the name of the couple by the wedding attendants.
Afterwards all the guests have followed the wedding couple with a rented bus to Vista Palace Hotel next to Monaco, where the evening continued. The view was splendid, especially with the fireworks above the sea! Below you will find a great wedding video made by a young videographer hired by the couple, he has really captured the mood of the wedding!
Marta, once again thank you so much for your wonderful photos! I love them all!
