Marie The Bride:
In February 2017, we were in Berlin for a mini break. We walked the streets of Berlin when we heard music in the distance, we found ourselves in front of a very beautiful cathedral. At the foot of this cathedral played two handsome boys, folk compositions. We were sitting on the ground and moved to tears by their pieces. On a sign, their little name: the Sons of Settlers
. They were South African. Nicolas said to me, "Would you like them to play for our wedding?"
He insisted: "They play in front of a cathedral, Jesus looks at them and looks at us. I will ask them." A few months later, we produced the Sons of Settlers for the first time in Paris in a small Parisian Bar, one day before our wedding. They played during our wedding in duo and trio with Nicolas.
The guest gift was a CD with 6 tracks played by the Sons of Settlers.
Before I even thought about marriage, I already had a crush on Rime Arodaky's
wedding dresses. So when my mother asked me what would be the dress of my dreams, I dared to say "Rime!". Amazing gift, she is determined to give me one! I wore the Sewell Dress and the Sally Veil...
For the civil ceremony, I didn’t want a bouquet. I bought a transparent pouch and I filled it with flower buds by the local florist. For the religious ceremony, I chose Lily Paloma's
flowing and wild compositions. They created compositions on the basis of the plants we wished: we loved especially the semi-flowered ark at the exit of the church.
La Dime de Giverny
, the place of our wedding doesn’t require a big work of decoration. The theme is overflowing in this place: country, chic, vegetal...We wanted a very musical, very artistic wedding, so, we added musical instruments in the patio, in the garden and in the reception room. For the decor, we rented wooden games and vintage furniture on the BigDayBazaar website. Monsieur plus Madame
has created all the kraft paper stationery on the vegetal and musical theme. The little extra, built by our witness: an outdoor photobooth. The reconstitution of a room and a SharingBox to capture the moments.
For the civil ceremony, I made an entry on Sexual by Neiked at the arms of my girlfriend, the neighbour of Nicolas. The one who asked Nicolas one night to go to her house because she had a girlfriend to introduce him. And here we are! Married. For the church, a Catholic ceremony at the church of Giverny. We wanted it very personal, spiritual and musical. Musicians with rock energy have teamed up with a gospel singer. We have hidden little jokes and little messages of love in the ceremonial booklet for our guests!
