Et voila weddings was born out of a passion for excellence, a deep interest in people and human relationships, and a drive for entrepreneurship.
Creating events where people can celebrate a couple, get together and rejoice in a stylish setting, feeling privileged to live a unique experience without the pressure of formality… this is what we love to do.
I am French, grew up in the north of France, spent all my summer holidays as a child and teen on the French Riviera, studied in Paris, lived in Marseille and Bordeaux, married a Frenchman from Montpellier, have close family in the south west and south east of France as well as in Corsica, and I split my working and leisure time between my homes in London and Provence…
So I do quite a bit of travelling!
I have been professionally planning events for the past 11 years. I trained in events planning within events agencies, companies such as Louis Vuitton UK and within the NGO Amnesty International, before setting up Et Voila Weddings in 2011.
Over the past 8 years I have been guiding couples in the planning of their beautiful destination wedding in France. From intimate celebrations for 16 guests to large weddings for 180 guests, from authentic organic to sophisticated lavish, I have enjoyed planning and tailoring each wedding to “my couples’” wishes.
When you have been planning events for as long as I have, the vendors sourcing and coordination aspects of things are just the base tier of the cake. Making each wedding tailored, thoughtfully curated, and a great experience for all is the real game!
The day has to be as memorable for your guests as it is for you, and I am never as proud of the task accomplished than when guests come to us to tell us this was the best wedding they have ever been to.
HOW IT ALL STARTED
Back in 2011, there was a huge interest for destination weddings in France, yet very few planners offering international services with a bilingual team.
Et Voila Weddings has been one of the very first French destination weddings planning agency, and forging the tracks has not always been easy. I have had some hard times defending the added value of a wedding planner’s work to French venues and vendors used to deal with couples directly and who sometimes felt a wedding planner was an unnecessary middle person. But fast forward 8 years, I am very pleased to see how the work that we do is now valued and recognised, and how most high end venues now require the services of a professional planner to ensure a smooth planning and event.
An Et Voila wedding is characterized by an elegant and stylish design, a relaxed atmosphere conducive to togetherness, and a seamless production.
Our London studio keeps us very close to where the newest trends develop and we love to incorporate those into our weddings.
I am proud to say that we work with the finest vendors in the wedding and event business. We maintain strong relationships with leading venues and renowned professionals to ensure you have an incredible team on your side.
Our work has been published numerous times in Style Me Pretty, Brides UK, Magnolia Rouge, Elizabeth Anne Design, and in French publications such as Oui Magazine or Le Blog de Madame C, among other blogs.
We are very proud to be a Style Me Pretty little black book member.
Within the wedding industry Et Voila Weddings is synonym of professionalism, expertise and high profile events.
