A Dreamy French Celestial Wedding

The Style: This styled shoot was inspired by all the magic of the night sky. Best Events & Co, created a dreamlike celestial wedding themed around the moon and her stars.

The Location: Château Gassies in the Bordeaux wine region in the South of France. The Château was built in 1775 and sits on a 14 hectares estate which overlooks the city of Bordeaux from the hills of Latresne. This magnificent, grand-yet-peaceful property enhanced the other-worldly theme.

The Vibe:  Lovers celebrating under a dreamy star filled sky. Instead of using the dark tones normally associated with the night sky, the team put a twist on tradition, opting for a soft palette of pastel pinks and blues. Delicate linens were used to further the light and airy feel. 

The Details:  An eye-catching DIY celestial aerial installation of around 200 hand-made paper stars were strung up amongst the fairy lights. The celestial theme was also captured in the crescent moon-shaped floral installation created by Our Fabulous Things. An Airstream food truck, straight from another galaxy, was used to serve snacks to hungry guests.


  • Destination wedding venues such as châteaus and villas are ideal for couples looking to tap into the COVID-friendly trend where couples invite an intimate group of guests to celebrate their nuptials together over a long weekend
  • The venue’s infinity pool made for some great after-party inspiration, perfect for post-destination wedding festivities.
  • Vintage touches like the cream Triumph getaway car for the bride and groom were used to add to the dreamy vibe.
