Françoise and Méderic got married 5 years ago and decided to renew their vows with their very close friends. They live in Nantes (north west of France) and chose as wedding destination, the Haute Savoie area.
I take you through Françoise and Méderic’s big day in Chatel, Haute Savoie.
“When Françoise contacted me the first time, she explained to me their expectations: they wanted a bachelor/bachelorette party the day before the wedding; for the wedding itself, the couple wanted an intimate friendly wedding in the middle of the snow. Let me describe you the progress of the festivities:
The couple rented a chalet in Chatel where they spent a week of holidays with all their friends. We asked to Marc Daviet, to capture all the best moments of those festivities. The preparation of the bride started early in the morning with a hairstyle made by Elisabeth . Françoise wore a tailor-made dress made by Marjorie .It was a mix between her first wedding dress and a new one. While everybody was preparing, I setted up the decoration for the ceremony and the evening party. The theme of the wedding was “the winter” with as main colour, white, blue and silver. For the ceremony, I put fake snow in a vase and some white branches. I added on a few branches, white roses and feathers. Unfortunately, because of the rain, we couldn’t have the ceremony on the terrace, so we decided to have it on the balcony. The lovely snowy setting made this ceremony even more romantic than it already was .Then the couple and their guests took pictures in the snow. At the end of the photo session, 2 limousines took us to the restaurant “la Samoyede” in Avoriaz for the wedding lunch. The chef cooked a delicious dinner with scallops, foie gras, a local dish and a wedding cake. After this gastronomic lunch we came back to the chalet for the party. We danced and had fun until 5h in the morning.
