A wedding on the French Riviera is the dream of brides-to-be’s from all over the world. With 20000 registered weddings every year, the Provence Alpe Côte d’Azur region is one of the most coveted, especially the Bouches du Rhône and Alpes Maritimes departments. When we send a wedding hairstylist in Cannes, Nice or Saint Tropez, and when it’s about American, Chinese, Russian or even Parisian couples, we know well what brings them to chose this region for their weddings.
Here are 15 reasons why we recommend the brides and grooms-to be to celebrate their union on our beautiful French Riviera, whether they are French or come from overseas.


The Riviera is one of the most sunny places in France. It shines over 300 days per year ! The climate is mediterranean, therefore dry, but the Mistral (local wind) will cool you down on the hottest days.


In the South of France, you will find some of the most beautiful beaches in the world : “La calanque des anglais” or “la crique de la Baumette” in Saint-Raphaël, la “plage Beau Rivage” in Nice… Many hotels have their private beach.


Between sea and mountains, between the inland Provence and the coast, there is something to suit all tastes ! The region has some of the most beautiful views sceneries France.


The mediterranean coastline offers exceptional landscape. Enjoy a nap under the pines, with the smell of fig trees and the song of cicadas, so dear to Marcel Pagnol.

“Et la chanteuse infatigable
Jette dans l’air brûlant et bleu
Sa ritournelle interminable.”
