and The French Wedding Workshops
Et Voila Weddings organises small, intimate wedding events in London for brides-to-be eager to learn more about how to plan their wedding in France. Our French Wedding Workshops are great opportunities to meet with the Et Voila Weddings team and to get some expert planning advice for your French destination wedding.
To receive invitations to our French Wedding Workshops send us an email on contact[@]etvoila-weddings.com and we will add you to our mailing list.
Et Voila Weddings is also the proud organiser of The French Wedding Show London, an event bringing together some of the best French wedding vendors in London to show case their work and talent. The French Wedding Show is a unique opportunity for couples planning a destination wedding in France to be introduced to some of the best French wedding suppliers in a relaxed, intimate atmosphere.
As wedding planners specialised in French destination weddings, we are familiar with the questions and apprehensions UK couples might have when planning their wedding in France. We know how difficult it can be to get recommendations if you do not know other couples who got married on the other side of the pond. We also know how important it is for you to have a chance to meet your suppliers and develop a close relationship with them so you feel 100% confident and at ease on your big day.
The show is an invitation only event for the vendors. We contact our best suppliers, the ones we use for the weddings we organise in France. We invite them to the show because we are confident they are the best suited to destination weddings: English speaking make up artists and a hair stylists, bands with a repertoire that you and your guests know, wedding cake designers for a traditional cutting of the cake, and many more…
After two very successful editions, The French Wedding Show will return in 2016. If you would like to be updated on the event please send us an email and we will add your details to our newsletter!
For a sneak peak of what to expect, here is a little video of the show, by amazing wedding videographers Studio 80.
