Marriage in all serenity at the Château de la Barben
Wedding at the Château de La Barben between Salon-de-Provence and Aix-en-Provence for Caroline and Marc
I was looking for a qualifier to illustrate this charming wedding in La Barben near Salon de Provence. And it is clearly the word serenity that immediately jumped in my mind. Indeed, very few are married also not stressed and also inclined to take full advantage of such a beautiful day. It must be said that for Caroline and Marc it was above all an opportunity to gather their families, friends and colleagues in an incredible place that exudes a charm. The Château de la Barben, just a few kilometers from Salon-de-Provence, emerges on top of a small hill in the heart of a huge green park dotted with numerous water features decorated with fountains and sculptures. The first traces of construction on the site date back to the eleventh century and would have been a stop along the ancient Aurelian voice. It is accessed by a monumental staircase leading to the large terrace of honor which houses all the events and especially all the weddings that take place there. It is from this terrace that one reaches by a superb staircase with double revolution to the castle proper flanked by its medieval towers, with battlements and loopholes
The bride and groom began their preparations mid-morning in a suite located halfway up the main tower and whose private terrace overlooks an extraordinary 180 ° view over the entire area between Salon and Aix en Provence. After a quick jump to the village for the celebration of the civil ceremony, the wedding party went by the path of the schoolchildren in the park of the castle, for a small snack, a few refreshments before beginning the long ascent Terrace of honor. This is the moment that still fears the photographer who comes to cover a wedding at the Castle of the Barben can its equipment be somewhat heavy and cumbersome. Here are some pictures of this beautiful day.
