Here is the report of the last wedding of the season 2017.
Winter wedding with the very marked theme of Alice in Wonderland spirit Tim Burton, imagined, organized and coordinated by Laure Annerel wedding planner of Alliance Rêvée agency and realized thanks to her super wedding team.
Wedding place : Between Puget Ville and Vidauban
Date : December 16th 2017
Number of guest : 55
Wedding Theme : Alice in Wonderland spirit Tim Burton in the colors white, blue and black.
Wedding Team : About fifteen providers engaged to the success of this beautiful marriage.
Common points with the couple : Our love for animals.
My meeting with Aurélia and Jimmy was a real pleasure. At the end of the first meeting I was very motivated by their beautiful project, bringing together many challenges and interesting and exciting elements.
The first thing that appealed to me was organizing my first Vegan wedding. Aurelia and Jimmy, activist involved in the cause of protection and animal welfare are both Vegan. But what is it ? Well, they don’t consume any product of animal origin, neither product manufactured by animals. No cream or cow’s milk, goat’s milk, eggs, honey, cheeses, etc. Only products of plant origin.
My challenge in all of this was to find a caterer who could take the challenge to create a custom menu without using animal products and offer us something other than a soya steak and raw vegetables, especially for a winter wedding;)
2nd challenge, find a cake designer who can make a wedding cake Vegan as beautiful as good and to stand.
Our goal with the bride and groom was to show to the guests unaccustomed to this lifestyle and sometimes critical that the vegan cuisine is a real tasty food. Bet raised through a team of high level providers.
The Vegan lifestyle also includes that i needed to find a make-up artist who doesn’t use animal-tested make-up, accessories without leather, neither real fur etc.
The second point that seduced me in the project of Aurélia and Jimmy is the fact that they wished to make a wedding in Winter.
The organization of a winter wedding is different from a wedding in high season. There are some logistical points to keep in mind and again it’s good to get out of your usual comfort zone. And what about the magical side of the lights, the beauty of the bride with really nice, such as boots, fake fur etc …
And finally the third point that inspired me a lot was the wedding theme. Alice in Wonderland spirit Tim Burton. There are so many different possibilities and superb to achieve around this theme 🙂

Directional panels everywhere
You will see that once again my decorator team has ensured and made possible my most extravagant ideas, such as creating a passage for the entrance in the room by a clock in the manner of Alice who come in the Wonderland …
And why not to replace the traditional photo box, view and review by a Magic Mirror?
Does that not remind you of something ?
And yes, Alice Through the Looking Glass of Tim Burton.
As I like to say:
“Details make perfection, perfection is not a detail”Léonard de Vinci.
Did you like this little resume?
I now propose you to enter in detail of this fabulous wedding day.
Alice in Wonderland
The bride and groom have prepared, surrounded by people they love, each on their own.
They had written a letter to each other, which they discovered, separated only by a huge tree. It was a magical moment. They still hadn’t seen each other, and they were there together, hand in hand …
Departure for the City Hall, to join their friends and families. Aurélia arrived in a nice collection’s car a “Traction” with her dad.
The civil wedding ended under a rain of lavender and bubbles, departure of the cortege for the reception venue where a small coffe/Tea and chocolat bar waits the guests the time that the newlyweds finish their couple’s photos.
Couple section in an atmosphere, fun and romantic with obviously Gibson “their baby” who for the occasion had the pleasure of having his personal dog sitter for the day.
December 16, 2017 has been a beautiful sunny day. However, given the season, as soon as the sun goes down, better go warm.
It’s the beginning of the ceremony with winter decor in a beautiful old chapel. Isn’t it a sumptuous setting to say a big yes I do?
After the ceremony, the bride and groom are happy to offer to their guests a cocktail bar with some small Vegan delicacies.
Regarding the animation we can always count on the famous magic mirror set up in the Alice in Wonderland photobooth corner.
The music of Alice in Wonderland start, it’s time to open the small passage to get everyone in the universe imagined for the occasion. A moment out of time.
Each table decoration was different, with the universe of the character to be imagined and staged by the talented Rita. The table of honor, represented all the characters.
Tea cups, cards and vegetal balls was hanging, all lighted by the great DJ team.
Aurélia wanted to launch her bouquet but not necessarily in the traditional way. So I suggested her to set up the game of the bouquet with the ribbons. The idea is that the bride cuts all the ribbons that surround the bouquet until there is only one left. The candidate who finds herself last hanging on the bouquet wins.
The Vegan diner continues and the guests feast. The challenge of the Vegan meal was a success. Thanks to our talented chef Gaetan.
In the evening there were surprises for the bride and groom but also for the guests. Aurélia and Jimmy offered a nice show during their first dance choreographed.
Meanwhile, behind the scenes, we prepare the dessert’s buffet. A gourmet buffet with the incredible wedding cake Vegan Alice in Wonderland. A masterpiece realised by Emma and Mathilde. A cake as beautiful as good.
It’s time to launch the dance party to close this wonderful Alice in Wonderland’s wedding.
Thank you to all the great wedding team who was there with me in the organization of this beautiful winter wedding.
I wish to Aurelia and Jimmy a lot of happiness.
