Get to know this professional wedding organiser and decorator, and discover the concept of a destination wedding in the South of France.
Why have a destination wedding ?
I am completely bilingual and have always worked with Anglo-Saxon clients. Obviously organising a wedding at a distance without knowledge of the region or direct contact with providers can be very stressful and complicated. That is why it is important for me to bring my expertise and my support to the newlyweds who want to get married in our beautiful region.
Which locations are “trendy” ?
The South of France. Its history, its fantastic climate, its lavender fields and olive trees make for a truly dreamy destination wedding location! We take care of all the organisation, decoration and coordination of the big day for foreign couples who come to Provence or the French Riviera to tie the knot. In our portfolio we have some magnificent venues such as vineyards, fairy-tale castles, typical Provence-style bastides in the middle of lavender fields, prestigious hotels on the French Riviera, mythical beaches …
What is “Destination Wedding Décor” like?
In the background: fields of vines, lavender and olive trees, stone buildings, sublime Provençal farmhouses. All these decorations act as inspiration for weddings that are both simple and authentic. Provençal romanticism is portrayed through the odd sprig of lavender, pots of olive trees, wildflowers, flax, garlands of light and various other things to create the intimate and aesthetic spirit that lovers look for in the South of France.
What should be taken into account? Any pitfalls to avoid?
The guest list is undoubtedly the most delicate point to consider when organising a wedding destination in France. How many people can we invite? Should we take care of our guests’ transport, and especially the accommodation on site or in guest houses and hotels nearby? Once the venue has been chosen (after having been visited of course), you must choose the right caterer and arrange several tastings. It is also necessary to meet and choose very carefully the different wedding providers by grouping the appointments during a trip taken several months or even a year before the wedding. The bride and groom must let go and put their complete confidence in the wedding professionals of the region.
