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.
