Joe Jonas and Sophie Turner Throw a Pre-Ceremony Pool Party at Their Wedding Château in France
Amid record-breaking temperature highs in France and other parts of Western Europe, the couple kept “cool” by the pool alongside family and friends Thursday at their wedding venue: the beautiful Château de Tourreau.
Turner, 23, and and her husband, 29, were spotted spending time with the groom’s brothers, Nick and Kevin Jonas, plus their wives, Priyanka Chopra and Danielle Jonas. As seen in photos shared by E! News, many of the gathering’s participants carried drinks while lounging by the estate’s grand pool.
The Game of Thrones actress was photographed in the casual white ensemble she arrived at the venue in earlier that day before changing into a bikini and white robe for their aquatic jaunt, while Joe swapped his slacks for a pair of red-and-white swimming trunks.
While none of the brothers or their significant others shared images from the pool, Chopra, 36, did post a snapshot of herself and Nick, 26, on Thursday, dressed to the nines (she’s wearing Honayda), overlooking the magnificent countryside. She captioned the romantic photo, “It’s in the air … ” and added a red heart emoji.
Turner and her Jonas Brothers beau were all smiles upon arrival Thursday as they were greeted by a wide variety of friends and refreshing drinks. Banners reading, “Sophie and Joe” with their wedding date were draped on the building’s facade.
The bride was spotted giving a loving hug to one of the chateau staffers, while holding a CELINE bag and wearing a Dior “We Should All Be Feminists” tee. Meanwhile, Joe was decked out in a dark-colored ensemble with white shoes and sunglasses as he mingled with guests.
Located near the “golden triangle” (made up of Avignon, St Rémy and Aix-en-Provence), the venue — once a private estate and now used for events and as luxury vacation accommodations — is surrounded by trees and protected by iron gates.
Spanning 17 acres, the 249-year-old property boasts gardens, orchards, streams and an 82-foot-long pool. According to its Facebook page, the home can sleep 29 guests, and includes 16 bedrooms and 16 bathrooms.

According to a listing on Trip Advisor, which touts the château as one of the “most exquisite private estates in Provence,” guests can book the entire property for $4,656 per night with a three-night minimum stay.
Turner and Joe have been in France for a week now, exploring Paris as they prepare for their nuptials. Last Thursday, the superstar couple were spotted outside the Hôtel Costes with friends after dinner.
Then over the weekend, both Turner and Jonas posted the same sweet selfie showing them about to share a kiss on the Seine River bridge, in front of the Eiffel Tower.
“Easy now! 1 week to go! Ha! See you at the wedding!” the talk-show host commented on Turner’s post of the Eiffel Tower picture.
