Provence's stunning landscapes and gorgeous weather make it the perfect location for a late June wedding. Charlotte Casiraghi and Dimitri Rassam, and Sophie Turner and Joe Jonas celebrated their second nuptials in this French region on Saturday, taking advantage of its unique charm.
After celebrating their civil ceremony in Monaco on June 1st, Charlotte Casiraghi and Dimitri Rassam held a religious ceremony at the Sainte-Marie de Pierrendon Abbey, a medieval building surrounded by lush gardens in the heart of the Alpilles. The bride gave a nod to Provence's traditions by carrying a bouquet made with lavender, which is now in full bloom, and wheat.
Further up north, in the town of Sarrians between Orange and Carpentras, lies the luxury Chateau de Tourreau, a five-star traditional Provencal palace where Game of Thrones actress Sophie Turner and singer Joe Jonas celebrated their formal wedding after tying the knot in Las Vegas on May 2nd. The couple spent a few days in the chateau, where their family and friends, including actresses Priyanka Chopra and Maisie Williams, stayed.
The rehearsal dinner took place the day before in Avignon's Michelin-starred La Mirande, which had been visited by the Obama family a few weeks earlier. On Saturday, festivities started with a ceremony at Chateau Martinay, in Carpentras, followed by a reception at the 17th-century Chateau de Tourreau, which has space for 29 people, as well as a chapel, swimming pool, tennis court and extensive, manicured gardens.
