Forever in search of something new, I love wandering through France to uncover hidden treasures. Epicurian by nature, I am enthralled by culture in every form, wine (with a special affinity for those from Bourgogne and Rhone valley), gastronomy and anything out of the ordinary.

France is an incredibly romantic, diverse country that offers countless possibilities for a destination wedding, honeymoon, anniversary or other special occasion. When you choose to work with us, we guarantee that yours will be both exclusive and extraordinary.

While some of our clients already have an idea of where they’d most like to get married, celebrate an engagement or a landmark wedding anniversary, others are in need of some inspiration.

Concierge-level services for Your Special Day

After a painstaking consultation with our wedding & occasions planners that will help us understand your tastes, wishes and overall vision for your wedding or other special event, we can source and secure the perfect stylists, decorators, florists, hairdressers, makeup artists, musicians, caterers, chefs and other vendors.

The advantage for you and your sweetheart? This eliminates much of the stress of planning– but you’ll still be able to make final approvals for every detail, ensuring your vision comes to life.

All our friends are absolutely happy with the experience at this beautiful countryside of Bourgogne. The Citroen driving is definitely something, that we never tried before and it was so much fun! All our group and me personally would like to thank you Marie for a wonderful journey 😊 We plan to visit Bretagne in the end of May for my husband birthday, would you be interested to organize another trip for us? Hope you've got back home safely, maybe we could meet in Nice for a coffee sometimes 😉Best regards,
