So here’s to looking for a wedding planner to have a professional on hand to organise their wedding on the French riviera in “Juan les pins”. One of their selection criteria, in addition to their various requirements of the bride and groom, was that their wedding planner “speaks English of course.” Point which also delighted me that I particularly like to mix my passion for weddings with this language I love talking. In short, a project with an incredibly friendly couple, cute, and with a “bride to be” so Organised …

They have choosen to mix on the same cake a wedding cake with some traditionnal “croque en bouche” on the top to be able to mix up their two cultures. A real feast for the eyes that gustatorily speaking.

Courtney and Hugo was enormously invested in their wedding despite their respective schedules well busy and it was a pleasure for me to accompany them to their incredible day.

A day with a strong “Mistral” wind with more than 60 kms, plan B thinking in emergency, planning to rework the D day, prevent the various providers involved changes in the last minutes. All in good mood, with efficiency, responsiveness and discretion on the part of the team.

Nevertheless nothing could mar the happiness of our two lovers and their guests. All have enjoyed this beautiful sunny day.
