The was the bride's parents' home. It was transformed by tents and lights set up by Organic Concept. The decor was fresh and relaxed, with no particular colour scheme. The witnesses happened to wear different shades of blue and it looked nice. Flower girls were wearing lime green dresses from
that they previously owned. A friend of my parents, Henriette did our flowers, she was fantastic.
Both friends who read a text picked children stories (Le Petit Prince and The Velveteen Rabbit). Our two closest friends were running the show, and as we were married officially in June the previous year, we wanted to make this ceremony as special as possible. Neither of us are religious so we did it our own way, they wrote the script together without telling us the details which was fantastic. To seal our union we mixed an aperol spritz in a large jar that had been standing in the front since the start of the ceremony, with ice and prosecco. We added the aperol and it all went orange. Everyone was then able to have a sip of our
union drink :)
The Food & Entertainment
The party in the evening was lead by DJ Bruno, who came highly recommended by my parents who saw him set
dancefloors on fire at two other weddings. He was great, took our suggestions and put his skill on this. The food by Jerome Ravel
was delicious. On Sunday, the brunch was the 2nd part of the party, as people travelled we wanted them to have a
full two days of fun. The Hotel Les Messugues
was a fantastic venue for a day event (but now would also be good for evening as they have done some work near the pool). The food was everything one could dream of for an after party day, and we had the whole pool as ourselves and a lot of our guests were using up all the hotel for the weekend. A slice of paradise tucked away in the vineyards.
