Dramatic scenery, riverside restaurants, unspoilt charm, hearts on the doors, its very own ‘maison de l’amour’ – these are only some of the reasons why St Antonin Noble Val could be the perfect place for the wedding of your dreams.
I’m a British Wedding Planner who has been living in the medieval town of St Antonin for over ten years now, and along with my sister (the Designer), am here take the stress out of planning your wedding here in France. As we only organise weddings in and around St Antonin Noble Val – we have venues in the bastide towns of Castelnau de Montimiral and Cordes sur Ciel for example – we are on hand personally from the outset right through to the end of your wedding day, to make sure that all you and your guests have to worry about is enjoying every minute.
Because we understand that each wedding is as individual as the couple getting married, we don’t have any set packages. Instead we prefer to offer a professional service that is flexible to your needs, where you choose only the services you require. As such, we are able to cater for couples who prefer a more DIY approach, as well as those who are short on time and need someone to take care of everything. It also allows us to work with all types of budgets….even the ‘petite’ ones! So whatever type of wedding you are looking for, be it shabby chic to tres tres chic, country home to chateau – or even if you have no idea what it is you are looking for – I am sure we can be of help.
As the majority of our clients live outside of France, we use the latest technology when it comes to keeping in touch. We can talk via Skype and share ideas (post pictures, notes and links to other websites) via a password protected, interactive wedding planning website, which you can access at any time. This is an important part of the wedding planning process as it enables us to get to know you better, as well as giving us a strong visual understanding of how you would like your wedding to look and feel. And if you are in need of a bit of help in the creative department, don’t worry, the site can also be used to create colour/style themed Imagination Boards to help steer you in the right direction.
We offer all the usual professional wedding planning and design services, but there are some things that make us special:
- we only work in St Antonin and the surrounding area so that we can guarantee the personal touch as well as in depth knowledge of all local venues and vendors.
– a Wedding Planning Mini-Break/Venue Find, with a refundable consultation fee, should you decide to book your wedding with us.
– access to an in-house artist/screen printer who can personalise all of your wedding stationery and on-the-day signage/artwork.
– our ability to offer a variety of honeymoon and extended stay experiences (wine tours, canoeing, cycling….the list is endless) for both you and your wedding party.
We would love to hear from you, so why don’t you have a little think about the kind of wedding you would like and the budget you have to work with, then get in touch to see what we can do? The first step is to request our Wedding Planning Questionnaire (this covers basic information such as preferred dates, approx number of guests, budgets etc), which we ask all our clients to fill in and return before we speak to them for the first time. If you’re not quite at this stage yet and would simply prefer to ask us few questions instead, you can do so via the contact us page.
Our preliminary call is free of charge, as is our subsequent quote – should you request one. If after either of these you decide not to take it any further, that’s no problem at all. We understand that your wedding day is one of the most important days of your life and that you will be looking at a variety of options in search of ‘the one.’
Bespoke is a sensibility. It’s the idea that you can tailor the details of your life so that they sparkle just a bit more, so that your favorite things collide into one spectacularly unique equation built exclusively for you.
