    HOW DID YOU MEET?

    We knew of each other through work. We first got to know each other properly when our paths crossed in a bar. I thought it was all going really only for him to invite his then flatmate over to join us so I naturally assumed that it was going nowhere but (after some chasing) it ended up getting to, well, this…

    5 Reasons Why More and More Couples are Getting Hitched in Portugal

    Let’s start this article by saying I am biased. As a destination wedding planner in Portugal, of course I want to share the merits of this gorgeous country and what it has to offer. However as 1 in 5 UK couples are now considering getting married abroad according to Destination Weddings Magazine, there is a clear reason why there has been an increase in interest in getting married in Europe and particularly in Portugal, which has seen a sharp spike in its wedding industry from the international market over the past 5 years. This is not by accident dear reader, and in this piece I’m going to share with you, what is tempting couples from all over the world to tie the knot in sunny Portugal. Speaking of which…

    The Climate

    Probably stating the obvious here but bear with me, I might surprise you. Portugal is not a sun-all-round-winter-does-not-exist kind of place, so be mindful of anyone who sells it to you that way. Portugal is not all sunshine and rainbows and should never pretend to be. What it does offer is bright, temperate days in the Spring, hot, long days in the Summer and often warm, sunny days in the early Autumn too. For weddings, it’s the ideal evening soiree destination as the warm Summer evenings are great for late ceremonies and dancing into the early hours under the stars.

    HOW DID YOU MEET?

    We met on a sunny summer’s day in London’s Hyde Park at a picnic gathering. We met again a few weeks later and it grew in something very special that is our loving marriage today. Marriage had never really been on the cards to start with. Yet after nine years of our love for one another growing every day, Tristan popped the question whilst on holiday in Los Cabos, Mexico and pulled all the romantic strings.

    CEREMONY AND RECEPTION LOCATIONS

    Yohann being French and Tristan being British, we had to decide where to get married. We found equally stunning places in both countries. So it came down to which was the most convenient in order to have our close family and friends able to attend. It came down to the size of the family. The French won, being 3 times the size of the British family. Both the symbolic ceremony and the wedding reception were held in the stunning Domaine de la Corbe, in the heart of Vendee, western France. We fell in love with the manor, its stables and gorgeous grounds. Even if it is a chateau, the venue still had a rural feel to it, which reminded us both of our childhood. And since we both had a fairly rustic upbringing, the theme of our wedding could only be country chic.
