A dreamy wedding between olive trees and sea

Céline & Thierry – Sainte-Maxime

It was once a cute couple, Celine and Thierry, lovers of the sea and nature. Organize their wedding on the theme of seaside holidays was obvious to them. Their business causing them regularly forthcoming in the south of France, they had bought a villa in Sainte-Maxime and wanted to get married here.

The planification : 6 months – 20 vendors

The marriage proposal occurred at year end, Celine and Thierry decided to schedule the wedding in July. Although the time was short to plan a wedding this does not frightened Céline (a woman very well organized in life). The watchword : a wedding on the beach in a truly Provencal style where creativity reigned.

The sea sight and the beach of la Nartelle was the place of their dreams but to create the desired mood Celine and Thierry needed help. They wanted to organize a dinner the evening before the wedding in their villa; for the wedding day, we imagined dozens of centenarians olive trees installed on the beach, a Guinguette lighting, wooden furniture to seat the guests, a live band of seven artists to animate the evening and a fireworks; finally a beach party the next day.

The wedding : July, 2015

The rehearsal was a success, the atmosphere in the glow of candles had allowed everyone to spend a good evening before the big day.

Upon their arrival in the town hall of Sainte-Maxime, a Provencal show was there to welcome them, the groom had wanted to make a surprise to his wife. After a beautiful ceremony, the beach was ready for their arrival. Check-shoes inviting everyone to take off their shoes. Panama hats, sunglasses and flip flops were available to each guest.

The evening was focused on dance, everyone could benefit from Dancing lessons and entertainment between the dishes. Before the arrival of desserts, each guest has joined the beach to throw a flying lantern, which was the signal to start the fireworks from a boat.
