Todays Intimate French Riviera Elopement is absolutely everything. Meghan and Ciarán made a decision early on in their engagement to have a wedding that made them very happy, and so the idea of a large scale, full on wedding event wasn’t even entertained and instead, they took to their laptops and started researching fabulous places to go in the Mediterranean. They chose the French Riviera for it’s sheer beauty and their wedding day kicked off with a beautiful first look at their hotel in Nice. Photographer extraordinaire, Tony Gigov took them on quite the adventure, with their vows taking lace at Cap Estel, followed by a drive all the way to Antibes to capture the last rays of the warm autumn light. It was a perfect day, and these images say it all.   From Meghan, the Bride:

Where do we start… I was never the girl that fantasied about my dream wedding. Last year, shortly after getting engaged, Ciaran and I decided to make our special day about us and to do what made us happy on the happiest day of our lives. With Ciarán’s homeland of Ireland not too far away, we chose the Mediterranean as a good place to start looking and as soon as we saw images of the French Riviera we were sold. With the picturesque views, stunning coastline and amazing historic venues we knew it was the perfect place to start our lives together, in Nice!

Once the flights were booked, everything else was a breeze. I went online and searched for a photographer local to Nice. After looking over a handful of portfolios, the one that had spoken to me the most was from Tony Gigov. Tony’s photos were fun and full of life, it was an easy decision to make. Photographer, check! I then discovered Olga Elite for hair and makeup, and Wayne Riley Flowers for the bouquet and boutonniere.

We were all set for our big day, and what an amazing day that was!
