Hi, I'm Claire.

A Wonderful Wedding at Fortin de Corbières. 

Wedding Venue

Another 2022 wedding, another beautiful location. 
Rebecca and Jeremy chose the Fortin de Corbières in Marseille, Provence, as the venue for their wedding. This unique location offers a stunning view of the bay of Marseille.

The Ceremony

The ceremony took place outdoors at the highest point of Fortin de Corbières. A beautiful Houppa, designed by l’Art qui pousse, was positioned with the sea as its backdrop, creating a picturesque setting for the couple’s photos. The ceremony was accompanied by romantic violin music performed by Vibes musicians.

The Cocktail

After the ceremony, the guests and the newlyweds gathered in front of Fortin de Corbières for the cocktail reception. The breathtaking view showcased both the Marseille hillside and the sea. Dany’s Traiteur provided delicious canapés and culinary bars, while Vibes singers and musicians entertained the attendees.

The Dinner 

The dinner took place in the same location as the ceremony, with the tables set up during the cocktail reception. The bride and groom’s table was positioned above the Houppa, adding a grand touch. The guests’ tables were arranged in front of the Houppa. The decorations featured floral compositions in the same tones as the ceremony, complemented by pastel green tablecloths and white and golden dishes for an elegant touch. Each place setting included a metal pomegranate filled with sugar-coated almonds, symbolizing good luck and fertility in Jewish culture. The dinner area was beautifully illuminated with hanging light strings, creating a magical ambiance. Dany’s Traiteur provided a delicious meal, and Vibes musicians continued to entertain.

The Party

For the party, we had planned a space behind the tables with a dance floor for everyone to dance. A cocktail bar was also present and animated by the mixologists of DNA Bartending.

Few words about the Fortin de Corbières 

Overlooking the bay of Marseille, the Fortin de Corbières, built in the 19th century, this historic place, nestled in an exceptional setting, was elegantly transformed into a cradle of local art and culture, where the paintings of the famous Marseille painter Adolphe Joseph Thomas Monticelli were exhibited. Since then, the neo-classical style building of nearly 700 m² has been restored, enlarged and embellished. The Fortin de Corbières has become a timeless venue for receptions, sailing between sky and sea.
